When we tried to watch a DVD the other night, we got an error message H07. It had worked fine the night before. We borrowed it from our son and he can't find the instruction manual to find out what the error message is, can you help us?

You can try to clean the laser by opening the unit and wiping gently with a cue tip or cotton swab, but if you are getting a H07 errorit may be somethng more serious and require a replacementof the dvd drive.I hope this helps. Good luck.
I have just recently posted a cure for this - but here we go again. Fault H07 is the fault code for the spindle/disc motor and to cure it do this!
With the lid of the player removed, locate the spindle and where the motor shaft goes into the motor itself, use a little light oil or WD40. Let it soak in a while and try it again - you should now find it works.
Why this works I just don't know - it just does! (:-)
You can reset this fault by holding in the reverse, pause, and the on-off button, all at the same time. If it comes back then the spindle motor is the bad componet, and unless you know how to disasemble a mechanism for a changer I would let a pro handle 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.
While stopped, press and hold REWIND and PAUSE on the unit and then also press and hold OPEN/CLOSE on the unit until Initialized appears from the display. Turn the unit off and on again.
If it is still not working, Panasonic Consumer Support recommends having the product checked by an authorized Panasonic service center.
