This solution is most likely being submitted way
too late to help "dingo 1295", but perhaps it will help others who
run into the same problem.
Just this past week, in January of 2009, I ran into the very same problem with a Panasonic DVD-CP67 DVD Player. The player would no longer play disks and displayed the H07 error. Now, I can't answer the question about what exactly the H07 code is suppose to mean, but I can offer one possible solution for the DVD Player's inability to play disks and the subsequent display of the H07 error. What happened in my case is that a film of dirt had built up between the electrical contacts that are suppose to form a closed circuit when the player's disc drawer is closed. The two metal plates that make contact rub against each other and the abrasion eventually both creates and traps dirt where the plates touch. Therefore the player could no longer tell that the disk drawer was closed because the dirt blocked the fragile electrical circuit from being closed. Since the player could not tell the drawer was closed it would not spin up and play any inserted disks. I'd also like to note that before the player quite playing disks and started displaying the H07 error I was watching a DVD and did see the picture quality degrade until the video finally cut out and the disk stopped.
The Solution in this instance was to carefully remove the cover from the player, after removing seven screws on the back and sides of the player's case, and to clean the metal contacts with a non-abrasive eraser. The pink eraser on a NO. 2 pencil works perfectly.
On the back of the disk drawer, on the right side is a silver metal plate and at the back of the player, mounted on the plastic frame work around the platter that picks up any disk placed player, is a folded copper plate held down with a screw. Simply unscrew the copper plate and clean it with the eraser were it normally touches the silver plate on the drawer when the drawer is closed, being sure you do not get any eraser dust inside the DVD player. Although the copper plate will most likely be the plate with the most dirt on it you can also clean the silver plate without removing it. Once cleaned, you can reattach the copper plate with its screw.
Testing... You must place the cover back on the player before it will play disks. The cover must be fully seated, but does not necessarily have to be screwed on. You may have noticed when cleaning it that the copper plate has an upward folded tab that presses against the player's metal cover when the cover is closed. Without the copper plate touching the player's metal case through its cover the previously mentioned electrical circuit won't be closed and the player won't play disks. With the cover properly back on the player go ahead and try and play a disk. If it works then the problem is solved and you can finish screwing the cover back on. If the player still doesn't work then something more serious may be wrong and I would suggest contacting a service center.
I hope this helps.

Hey I just messed around with mine it was showing that code H07 like the others its kinds the same except it holds 4 more disc, I took the top off then I took the thing that holds cd still off!, there should be a brass thing I think thats for the ground, so I ended up putting some synthetic oil on the rails silver poles that the laser slides on, and where the disc sits on that black circle under it, you can see the motor it has a white thing on the motores pole so I just put a few drops on there then spinds it put some more on hoping it works its way DOWN INTO THE MOTOR thats the H07 not spining fast enough!! I put a disk in while everything was apart and its playing right now, the oil I desided to use was the stuff I use for my paintball gun lol! its really thin and slippory and im sure it will last for awhile!.... going to add more after 15 minutes of playing just to make sure its really lubed! hope this helps!!!!
