    I took the cover off and discovered the motor was not rotating, even when I tried to manually start it. My soIution nwas to junk the unit and buy a new Tosheba unit on close out at CompUSA for $52 and it also plays VHS.

Take the cover off give it a good gentle spin counter clockwise with a DVD in it and plugged in. It should start spinning by itself.

I have a DVD-RV31. Recently it stopped working and it has H02 on the display. Can I fix this problem?


have you tried a hard reset to get rid of that error?

hard reset is done by keeping the unit plugged off from wall power for one night

Panisonic DVD RV-31 Wont read any DVD...shows a "Ho2" code


The motor is on its way out - the H02 code indicates motor failure as in it cannot spin the disc. You can sometimes fix it but for how long is anyone's guess. Disconnect from the power, remove the three rear screws and two screws on each side (total 7) and lift off the outer cover. Now if you carefully reconnect the power BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH ANY PARTS INSIDE THE CASE and put a DVD disc in as per normal, you'll will see that when the tray closes, the upper platen (a honeycomb disc) that sandwiches the DVD to the lower platen does not spin - it should. Give a gentle spin clockwise and it should spin up and the DVD will play. You may need to restart if you missed your chance first time. If you switch off and on, eject and close the tray, the spin should happen as normal. If it doesn't, your motor is knackered and not an economical repair. Buy a new player. If it spins time and time again, you may well have temporarily fixed it for a while.

Panasonic DVD RV31 does not read DVDs created by Windows Movie Maker


The only thing that has worked for me is to make a copy of the disk after burning it in Movie maker.
