This normally means the spindle motor is faulty,there is a little coupler and this splits,this will cause the machine not to load.

    Find the spindle where it goes into the motor and spray some wd40 and leave for a while to soak in,you may have to do this a couple of times

My panasonic dvd/vcr combo displays the message DV D 2 in the display. Cnnot play DVD

Sounds like your remote code is different to what's in the unit's display (DVD 2). You can try to 'reset' the remote, by pressing (and holding) 2 and ENTER/OK buttons together for 5 - 10 seconds, then release. This should restore your remote function back to your unit. If it does not, replace the batteries with new ones, and try again.

The remote may require a 'reset' of its command mode (to match the unit) whenever the batteries are replaced.

I assume you can play DVD by pressing the PLAY button on the main unit.

Panasonic DVD Player. Reads DVD then says HO7 and then STOP. PLAY DOES NOT PLAY

Common failure of the spindle motor/laser assembly. Also known as the traverse unit, which can cost more than a new player to replace. Not a consumer-repairable part.

@Hello - whenever I try to insert a disk to play it starts reading it (display reads READ...READ and then it stops and displays HO7 and won't play the disk at all. I've had the unit a few years but have...

H07 is a common error code for Panasonic DVD players. It means the traverse unit (spindle motor/laser assembly contained in one block) has failed. Usually it is the spindle motor part of this unit which fails first, (i.e. it doesn't spin the disc at all) causing the problem, but sometimes the laser can also fail as well. Because the motor and laser are contained in one device block, the whole part has to be changed, and this can only be done by an authorised service centre. The only trouble with that is the cost. Many DVD drives experience this (different brands giving different error codes) so it's not just confined to Panasonic.

There are only 2 ways to go here; either be prepared to spend a fortune in a workshop service to have the traverse block replaced/aligned (which would include a brand new laser), or simply buy a new player - which would give you a new remote AND an optional extended warranty if available; this would be considerably cheaper than repairing the old one.

Don't be put off from owning Panasonic - they are generally good products.

Panasonic dd-s25 won't play dvd.


Have you tried reg.CDs to see if those have trouble too?
I would say that the lens assembly has got debris or a filmy substance over the lens.
If you're not the least bit technical , dont open the unit.
It will require that the cover gets removed and the top DVD spinner plate gets removed so that the Lens can be cleaned.
The chrome rails that the DVD reader runs on would need cleaing too.

Panasonic DVD-LX9 "disc may not be played in your region" error

Try cleaning the lens with a cleaner?
So it only reads music/Audio CDs and won't play DVDs?
Do you get an HO2 or HO7 error? If it is that it might be
the spindle motor.

You might try this website also to reflash the firmware:
