Question about Televison & Video
My Bose DVD 321 system will no longer play DVDs, instead the system seems to get stuck and the picture flickers vertically. To top it off, whatever picture peaks through the rapid scroll is black and white. On some DVDs it gets stuck prior to attempting to play the movie starting, and gives an error message about entering a parental control password--which we've never set. The flickering is so severe that we can't navigate to the menu or settings. We've tried rebooting and thorough cleaning...no luck. Any answers?

This is a common problem on CD and DVD players.
Altini is correct to a point. You can try taking the top case off, removing the DVD drive and taking the top off of the drive. Then use a q-tip on the laser lense. I use a little squirt of windex on the q-tip. Gently clean the lense even if it doesn't look dirty. Make sure you very gently work the lense up and down through it's travel. This will make sure no dust or dirt is interfering with the lense focusing.
Reassemble and try your movies again. This is a 50 50 proposition. If you still have the same problem, the mechanism has likely gone bad. Time for a new DVD player.

SOURCE: Error Message H07 - what is it?
The last time I opened up my Panasonic DVD-CV52, I looked at the little white bush on the motor spindle, it has a small spring which presses against the side of the bush.
I can see no purpose for this spring/bush other than to provide some drag to the motor.
Anyway, I removed the spring, so that the bush would no longer drag against the shaft, that was a few years back, and I haven't had a problem since.
Of course a temporary solution is to oil the bush!
The www.ledcar.com/pdvdh07/ link mentioned above provides an excellent pictorial guide to disassemble and reassemble the player.

I'm amazed at the range of comments regarding this system; they range from unbridled enthusiasm to some **** words.
Before I try to help, if I am not familiar with a specific model but have a clue to what the nature of the problem might be, I research the item to see if I find some support for my suspicion.
You might keep tabs on some comments I found relating to a possible class-action lawsuit due to the array of problems that have appeared with this system.
