    well the tray is blocking the way

    i took the cover off and everything works out good, i can hear the lens trying to scan it but the spindle wont turn to let the lens read the disc



    it just makes a high pitched squealing sound

    its fairly new too, the player worked perfect up until recently.



    my brother pushed the tray in because it froze and i had to realign the gears.



    it was fine after that but it stopped spinning.

    thanks for the info, i hope i get it worked out.

It sounds like one of the hindge/wheels are off set. Most of the time that can also cause the lazer lense not to come up all the way in order to properly read the disc. When you keep the door open and press start does it allow the lazer lense to come up all the way? That is the small circle glass peice you will see when you look in--some you can see it some you cant.

Let me know.

Thanks.

    Yeah I had the same issue with one of my DVD players as well. The thing is that I had to pick it up in order for it to work properly..for a while. Otherwise this is something a repair store can fix for your and not something I'd recommend doing unless you have worked or fixed some electronics before. They normally can fix it simply or it might be a bit more elaborate. Some places will take a look at it for free and then you can determine if you want it worked on or not..so an estimate. But otherwise there isn't any other simple fix for this at it needs everything opened in order to operate on the insides.

I have a Philips HTS5550 home theater and i have found out that the dvd spindle spins a disc for a few seconds, then it stops and displays a "No disc error" on the screen. What is the solution to repa


First, make sure you're not trying to play a bad disc by testing with another factory-burned DVD. And ... please do not be insulted here ... be sure the labeled side is facing upward. If still the same, the laser is mot likely defective and you will not be able to repair that yourself.

DVD PLAYER REPAIR (NO DISC ERROR)


Before you attempt to repair your DVD Player yourself, make sure that you have necessary tools and test instruments like philips screw drivers, multimeter, soldering iron, soldering lead, soldering pump, etc...

This is a DVD/MIDI Player with a "no disc error" upon loading any disc that played before...
Watch this VIDEO
First I've loaded it with disc and observe the movement of the optical lens and the spindle motor. First thing I've noticed that the spindle motor didn't oscillate upon spinning and it's spin slowly unlike the normal RPM...
I've suspected the spindle motor was already bad but still to be confirm...

jdvillanueva_28.jpg

jdvillanueva_29.jpg

Unscrew the disc holder plate from the assembly to keep away the magnet touching the spindle motor, this may affect the reading and spinning of the motor upon testing with the multimeter.

jdvillanueva_30.jpg

This is how it looks like after removing the disc plate holder in the assembly. Spindle motor is secured with 2 small screws in the lens assembly.
Pull-out the connectors from the main board to see the underside of the tray.

jdvillanueva_31.jpg

You may test the spindle motor with your multimeter set in resistance measurement (ohms X1) even connected to the small board.
Bad motor will read either less than 5ohms(shorted winding) or infinity (open winding) and will not spin.
Good motor will read more than 50 ohms(depends the size) and will spin upon testing. Watch this VIDEO.

jdvillanueva_32.jpg

jdvillanueva_33.jpg

Onced you've confirmed that the motor was already faulty, unscrew it from the lens assembly.

jdvillanueva_34.jpg

Replaced the spindle motor with new one. Before you install the new motor make sure that the clearance of the disc holder is the same as the old one. Compare first the clearance because if it is to high the optical lens will not read the disc same if it is to low....

After replacing the motor re-insert all the connectors to the main board.
I've load same disc which does not read a while ago and observe what will happen. Observe the disc and the sound oscillation from the spindle motor in this VIDEO.

Hope that the above information, pictures, and video will help you fixing your DVD player yourself.
Thanks for visiting Fixya.
Have a nice day!

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.

Bad Cdrom/dvd
The laser going bad is a pretty common issue with the drives, since it's a Hitachi that spindle motor could be all gunked up with dirt as well and cause that issue also.
if ya have a Hitachi, if it's a Samsung it could just be the laser.
