Not reading dvds or cds

I was watching a dvd last night and all of a sudden it stopped and a dvd hot code came on. Now it will play nothing but the radio and the tv. It will not read dvds and pops up the code dvdho2 or dvd hoz not sure witch.

My Panasonic DVD/CD player will not recognize any cd's or DVD's. When turned on it displays a "HOT" or "HO7" code.

    "ho7" error message is the only thing that my RV32 will do. Nothing else!

    once the forward button has been pressed the the displeay says DVD (even though a CD is in place)and then says a code : T-01 C-001 and does nothing else. Does not start reading or giving an output.

    My DVD player worked fine, then I went to play a movie for my grandsons and it started acting up. At first it attempted to play, but now it attempts to "read" then pops up the code HO7 and then stops. I tried playing a CD, but it does exactly the same thing. Is this something fixable or should I consider it dead? My DVD player is actually the Panasonic DVD/CD Player DVD-RV32.

This problem started intermittently at first and now is a constant problem. Your solution would've worked previously but will no longer work. Thanks anyway.

    seems like there is a solution after all,
    Just do the followings,
    1. Play an audio CD first, check if it works fine, (let it play for sometime)
    2. Play a DVD movie

    It seems whatever the error gets OK(reset) when an audio CD is played first.

Why my laptop DVD player freezes suddenly while playing, just on some certain CDs or DVDs even the same CDs or DVDs works properly in other laptops and PC?

Seems your laptop DVD player's laser diode lost it's capacity. If it is not that old, try the followings:
1. Blow some air with a watch air blower or an air can. Try the DVD/CD which freezes. If this doesn't work
2. Put a drop of lens cleaner and wipe with caution to the lens. Wait for a few second and try playing the DVD/CD. Don't use force when cleaning the lens. This should be just touch and wipe action.
If this is not the case and the drive is old, you need to replace the drive. This should cost about 30$ to 45$. I did mine last month.
Good luck

My bose lifestyle 48 system suddenly stopped playing new there a problem with the head..I bought it only in 2008

is the discs just spinning and then stopping when you put them in the drive?
there may be a chance that the lens might just needs cleaned. suggest a dvd lens cleaner but on the down side there is a strong possibility it may be a faulty lens. dvd players aren't built to last.
always clean the dvd player from dust and keep in an open space.

Suddenly stopped reading cds but reads dvds

Could be a bad drive, as DVD lasers are a little different than just CD lasers. The laser may be bad for one, but the other can work. I had this issue, had to buy a new drive.

Doesn't read dvd's

This problem is down to failure of the laser and an only be solved by replacing it. Samsung are aware of this fault but will only offer a free replacement if the unit is still covered by it's warranty.
They do offer a replacement service but charge £94 for it.

Dvd-rom not playing/recognizing dvds but plays cds

Yes your quite right, the solution to the problem is a new writer, although you have to get the same one if it's fitted internally to a notebook. You can update the firmware, thats not a problem, you may be getting confused with bios updates which are a knightmare. I assume you have tried the usual, uninstal and re install of the dvd drive, by uninstalling it in device manager on the cd/dvd drive line and click '+' sign, right click and uninstal, then restart pc to automatically install again. The cd recognition says that the drive capability to read and write dvd has corrupted andfailed, so really the only solution would be a new drive

Portable dvd player will play music cds but not video dvds

Chances are, your DVD player uses one laser to read CDs, and a different laser to read DVDs (since Cds and DVDs are read at different wavelenghts of light). If the DVDs you're trying to watch work properly in other DVD players, it probably means that the DVD laser is dirty, damaged, or burned out. Though you can try cleaning the laser (use Google for suggestions on how to do this, or check the Audiovox website), you will most likely have to get the DVD player repaired, or buy a replacement. Many of the newer CD/DVD players sold today use a single combination laser, which reads both CDs and DVDs, which means that when the laser fails, it will not work at all. Wish I had better news for you, but I guess that the only consolation you have is that your Audivox player still works with CDs...
