SOURCE: Error Message H02

I have had this problem on numerous times. Once while in warranty. Discussed with technician and he reported that the gears get dirty and stick and need cleaning. Since last year, I get this message every 3-4 months. I take out all the screws from the bottom, open the cast carefully, and use some canned air, clear all the gears, gently rotate all of them. Put everything back together and should work fine.

SOURCE: HO2 error code at screen

In line with the other Panansonic DVD players, the error seems to relate to the internal drive machanism getting stuck.

To fix you just need to carefully take the back off (disconnect power source first!), locate the drive cogs for the lens machanism and give the a couple of turns. Also a blast from a air can will help get rid of any dust build up. Pop the back cover back on and you should be working.

Looking at the other Panasonic threads on the site, this may happen on a regular basis especially as the unit gets older (and the crud builds up).

Hi, this is an unfortunate error. this is referring to the lens assembly. it is unable to scan and read at this moment. it could be because the lens is dead or, it could be that the lens is simply dirty and will need to be cleaned. i would try cleaning it with a non brush type cleaning process. Once cleaned and you still have the same issue, i recommend replacing the lens assembly.

Problem playing dvd with panasonic sa-pt660 keep getting an H02 error message?


Thousands of annoyed customers of Panasonic, Yamaha, and Denon DVD Player owners have encountered the infamous H02 / H07 /H03 erors and many others on thier players or maybe the "No disk" error even though a disk is in the drive. Well many people have spent hundreds on repair or bought a new unit. But i am here to tell you that it is okay to open up your dvd player and mess around in side. If your DVD player comes up with one of these errors the first thing you might want to try is to open up your DVD player by removing the screws on the side and the back (depending on the model), then plug the dvd player into power outlet with cover removed. Stick a disk in and press play and give the disk a little push. Most of the time the Spindle motor is dieing out when you get a H02 error. In this case that little push may get your spindle motor to rev back up back into action. And if your as succesful as me then hopefully you have just fixed your H02 error for free without doing much work. I just got a Panasonic HT95 Reciever/DVD player to play all disks again by giving the motor a little "kick start"

Dvd will not play. H02 appears. Have reset to no


H02 is a fault code, though I don't know what. It code be either an electrical fault or mechanical problem. A mechanical fault might be easy to spot so take off the top cover and see if anything is broken, otherwise I suggest a service manual will come in handy.

ERROR H02


Spindle motor in DVD mechanism require replacement, not practical to repair, just buy new one, upconverting DVD player would cost you less then repair of your old one.

Code H02


Your DVD player is having an issue with the spindle motor (the thing that spins the DVD around). The following solution works for most people, and you should only have to do this once.

  1. Unplug the DVD player.
  2. Take the cover off.
  3. Place a disc on the spindle.
  4. Put a little pressure on the disc (so it doesn't slip) and spin it around a few times.
  5. Remove the disc, reassemble, and plug back in.
  6. Try to play a DVD.
  7. Report back if this solved your problem, or if more troubleshooting is needed.

Ouch - This generally one of two things.

1 - Run up speed is not sufficient due to motor wear.
2 - The laser head sits within a 'plastic' runner, which wear down slowly, causing the laser to be misaligned - therefore not reading adequately.

Depending how adventurous you are feeling - you could dismantle the unit - and 'space off' the laser unit (Single piece of paper) this will lift up the laser.
Or you may be able to adjust the calibration power of the laser using a variable pot (unlikely to be available as these are generally hard coded nowadays - and not physical pots)

H02 Error after inserting a dvd disk


The trouble started with an error to close and open the DVD drawer. It indicated "close" when the drawer was open, or "no disc" when the DVD was inside, and I had to try many times before I get the right response and go on with the procedures.
But then it also started playing just a few MP3 tracks and stopping to work, showing again the inserted DVD data. Later H02, and then H07 and STOP. It doesn't even start playing stuffs, movies or MP3 tracks!

No Longer Plays discs


You should try this site. It worked for me. Also after fixing you should try and remove anything that may be on top of the DVD as this seems to cause the issue. We have had our S35 for at least 4 years and today was the first time I got the error.
