Dvd wont play ...each time you insert a DVD it shows DVD HO2...

I had the same Problem, player was only 13months old when the error HO2 appeared (typical huh?) anyway 2 years of this thing getting shifted from cupboard,wardrobe,attic, (did'n't want to throw it out cause it cost me £700), finally it came to fix it or bin it time. scoured the net to no avail, lost the rag and half dismantled it..then during all of this ( oops I'm going on a bit LOL)
you can hear a sound as though the disc is trying to be read, after 100's of attempts to get it to work, I finally noticed the disc had not changed position. (disc was not spinning) pointed to the Motor??
what I did to fix this was unplug from main's, remove top cover until you can see the top of the dvd disc, got hold of a pencil with a rubber on one end, plug back in, switch power on, and gently pushed top of disc ( clockwise ) and it kick started it off

that was over 3 years ago and the player is still going strong
I know its a bit rough, but nothing ventured nothing gained ;)

HO2 Error in VCR

I guess either the tape head is dirty and needs cleaning or you should email Panasonic with that question after reading the instruction guide's troubleshooting section.

i think the problem is an accumulation of dust. try cleaning it out with a can of compressed air, or if you dont have that, by blowing on the lens gently.

Dvd ho2

The problem centers round a spindle issue that is a known design flaw. Basically what happens is that the spindle gets warm, expands, and is then pushing on the top of the player . The following link shows a cheap fix..Hope it works for yours.
