I'm not at home

Not at home right now so I can't check the spindle motor. When it "locked up" there was a DVD in the tray but I have since removed it.

My PORTABLE. DVD MAKES NOISES PHILLIP


There are 2 possible causes. Either the bearings for the spindle motor, or the tracking mechanism for the laser. It depends on when you're hearing the noise. If the noise is heard continuously then the spindle motor bearings may simply be dirty. If this device has hinged lid to allow the loading of your discs; then open it and remove any loaded disc. In the middle is where the spindle motor is mounted, and the locking mechanism that holds them into place. One small drop of lightweight household oil such as what you'd use to lubricate an electric shaving device would be all it takes right into the spindle top where you press with your finger to unlock your loaded discs. Put in a drop and spin it with your finger.
Next, look into open space of the chassis where the laser is mounted. Use a cotton swab or small brush to remove any dust or grime from way screw and guide shafts. Look at the plastic gears for broken teeth. There will be ribbon style electric cable connector; make sure that a loop of it isn't sticking up into the area of the disc tray...if it is, carefully reposition it.

My disc tray won't open the lights turn on and work but the disc tray just won't open. How can I fix this?


hi,
You have to check two things.
1. You have to check the tray loading belt in the mechanism. To see the same you should remove the mechanism.because the loading belt is beneath the cd tray. As it is cyberhome it will be very difficult to remove the mechanism for an user. if your capable for doing the same then make try. Because you have to remove the top cover then the back panel, then the mechanism. Take care the mother board is attached to the mechanism.

2. You have to check the cyberhome dvd player will show this type of complaint if the Spindle motor is faulty (oppen or short ). Spindle motor is one on which the cd rotates. It will not cost a lot.
ok

Dvd player trys to read disc but stops with a HO7 message, worked fine last night, but we did put a dvd in to watch but something came on the tv we wanted to watch and didn't turn off dvd


HELLO

This is a motor problem. Here is what to do to put it right.

Open the disc tray and switch off the power, then remove the lid off the player. Locate the disc motor and where the spindle goes through the motor put a little WD40 or light oil (but not too much) or it will get messy.

Turn the disc motor a few times yourself and let the lubricant soak in. Leave it for about 30 minutes then try it again - and it should work.

This works in a number of cases, though I can't guarantee it will work for you. TRY IT! (:-)

Error code HO2 appears after inserting dvd panosonic NV-VP30EB


Hi,

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.

Disc tray doesn´t open, no help from previous answers


One thing you can try is to disassemble unit and remove tray section . on the underneath side of tray is a plastic gear that will allow you to manually bring out the tray thus removing the dvd . then put back together and see if it works ok . Or just may only have to remove the spindle adaptor on the top of the dvd with the screws on the side that hold it down . then remove the dvd , put back together and try . Some disc's that a dvd player cannot read properly can cause the system to lock up as you described . Good luck

Remove the cover of LVW and access the DVD assy,unscrew the 4 screws holding the DVD assy to the LVW bottom,remove the top and bottom shield (also 4 screws)and remove the top black plastic cover (4 screws).You will access the DVD spindle.Remove the disk if you still have a disk stuck inside.Visually check the spindle sticky rubber ring,most likely some sticky material migrated on top of the rubber ring and your DVD was stuck on it. Clean the best you can with a cleaner and a non lint cloth.I used a cleaner/degreaser for electronics.DO NOT POWER your LVW BEFORE reinstalling the black plastic cover.There is a laser inside !!! You may now try and if the drawer opens and closes, reassemble everything opposite way you disassembled.
