I have just recently posted a cure for this - but here we go again. Fault H07 is the fault code for the spindle/disc motor and to cure it do this!
With the lid of the player removed, locate the spindle and where the motor shaft goes into the motor itself, use a little light oil or WD40. Don't drench the area or you'll really have fun cleaning it up!

Let it soak in a while and try it again - you should now find it works.

I am now finding quite a few owners of Panasonic DVD players are starting to get this message on the display. The same happened to me!

I wish you luck! (:-)

Panasonic DVD-CV52 Multi-disc DVD Player? H07 error


Ah, the infamous HO7 error! This is to do with the disc motor and there is a solution which MIGHT work for you (it did for me).

You need some sewing machine oil and a precision oiler. Don't be tempted to use WD40 as it will get everywhere and is not really suitable. Just put a couple of drops into the spindle (disc) motor. Where the shaft goes into the motor and leave it for about an hour or so then try it again.

The only real solution is to replace the disc motor, but this can be a fix depending on the situation. Give it a try - what have you got to lose?

HO 7 error on a Panasonic DVD/CD player.

I got mine to work. I looked around a bit on the web, and it seems that HO7 means that the disc isn't spinning. Whether it's the motor that's bad, or just dirt etc, the problem is that the disc doesn't spin. I took the cover off of mine and blew out the dirt. Then i gave it a spin by hand to get it started. I'm not sure if I just had dirt clogging up the gears, but at least it works (for now). Good luck on yours.

Error code H01


I opened up by Panasonic dvd-cv52, which I purchased in Dec 2002 for H07.

The H07, based on research, indicated that the spindle motor had an issue, a post I found suggested trying some 3-in-1 oil.

I tried this and it worked (note, pop the top off firstm then power up the unit, then press the open button, then unplug the power, this will make it easier to lubricate).

Once I had done this and powere back up, I got h01.

Turns out I neglected to put back the elastic that is used to spin the carosel for the dvd's (I have a multi dvd player).

I would check to see if there is an elastic in place to spin the carosel, maybe your broke (assuming you have a multi carosel also)

Good Luck

Getting "HO7" when loading disc

After calling Panasonic, they suggested pressing the reverse skip (<<) button, the pause button and the open/close button all at the same time. The DVD player will then say "initialize." Turn off the player and unplug it for about 1-2 minutes. Plug it back in and turn on the player and load a disc. If the HO7 error code pops back up, you need to take it to a dealership for service. Or, at the price of DVD players these days, just get a new one - which is where I'm going right now.

Error Message H07 - what is it?

The last time I opened up my Panasonic DVD-CV52, I looked at the little white bush on the motor spindle, it has a small spring which presses against the side of the bush. I can see no purpose for this spring/bush other than to provide some drag to the motor. Anyway, I removed the spring, so that the bush would no longer drag against the shaft, that was a few years back, and I haven't had a problem since. Of course a temporary solution is to oil the bush!
The link mentioned above provides an excellent pictorial guide to disassemble and reassemble the player.
