I insert a DVD on the player and press the play button. The green LED lighted but I notice that the disc is not spinning althought the cover is closed. Why is it that that DVD is not spinning and reading the disc.

Hello If the DVD do not spins inside the playere, this type of fault can occur. Open the top cover of the player and insert a dvd. See whether it spins inside or not. If not, replace the motor that spins the disc inside. This motor is known as Sled motor. If disc spins inide and the player do not read or play it, replace the Laser Pickup Unit. It is faulty.
If your DVD player shows no disc, even a disc is inserted, try to clean its laser head assembly, by inserting a cleaning disc in it and play atleast three times. Take it ejected each time before you play it. If it does not helps, open the top cover of your DVD player, insert a disc, and notice if the disc spins or not. If disc spins, and not reads, the laser picup unit of your DVD player is faulty, and should be replaced with same type and number. If its stripe wire connected between pickup unit and main board is detachable, try repalcing the strip wire first. In some occations, bad strip wire will show this type of problem.
If disc does not spins, the sled motor [the motor that used to spin the disc at high speed], is damaged and shoud replace it. OK.
Push in the plug connected to the "Video Out" jack on the rear of the Dvd to ensure it is connected firmly. Check the connection at the back of the TV as well.
Press the "Source" or "Input" button on the TV remote to verify the television's input is set to the DVD connection.
Press the "open/close" button on the front of the DVD to open the disc tray. Insert and test different DVDs to determine if the problem is with a specific disc, or if the player will not operate.
Eject the DVD tray and insert the DVD laser lens cleaner. Close the tray and wait a few seconds for the cleaning disc to load. Press "Play" on the front control panel to spin the disc through the cleaning cycle.
Remove the cleaning disc, insert a DVD and test playback operation. If the machine still will not play discs, the main receiver unit may require internal repairs best left to an experienced technician.
The problem could be dirt on the surface of the lens, you can clean this by removing the cover of the dvd player .
Gently use a dry cotton bud to clean the lens because the lens is fragile.
Insert the disc plate into the dvd player and press play, if it does not play try the second method.
Ensure the cover of the player is open, connect the power plug to the mains socket and observe the lens if it beam a red light, Also check the ribbon cable use to connect the lens to the printed circuit board, then gently clean the lens with a dry cotton bud , insert the disc plate and press play to see if it play.
If it does not play the disc, then this require a change of the lens
To my knowledge, most H02 errors on a Panasonic DVD player would indicate a spindle error, that is the central motor that spins the disc. Normally, this would require an in-shop repair as electronics is involved, however, you could still try:
close the tray with no disc inside;
press on the back skip, pause, and play buttons simultaneously and hold for about 4 seconds;
when the screen blanks and
then "initializing" appears, release the buttons.
Alternately, you can try:
remove the top cover;
clean the spindle motor with compressed air;
manually turn the spindle counter clockwise and then clockwise numerous times to exercise the motor;
power on the player, insert a disc and manually assist the disc to start turning.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
Reset you player by doing the following:

moisten a microfiber cloth with isopropranol alcohol and clean the lens and black rubber ring on the top surface of drive motor
and also clean the surface the disc you are tring to play then retry dvd.
I had the same problem, After googling for a few minutes I found the reset procedure for this player.
1. Turn it on. 2. Eject any disk you have in there and close the tray. 3. Hold down the "STOP" button on the player (not remote) until the green light flashes red and the system reboots. 4. Insert disk and enjoy.
