F03 is a loading mechanism error. look for something obstructing the loading arms in the mechanism - a label from a tape, a piece from a broken cassette, etc.

Panasonic DMR-EZ47V Error Code F03

I saw this same issue. I would unplug and plug in the DVD and it would still show error code F03.

It turns out that one of my kids had shoved a couple of small objects inside the VHS opening and it was blocking the operation. I removed the objects and it works fine.

This error code is not listed in the manual that came with the DVD player.

Error Code F03

What worked for us when we saw F03? Taking the toothbrush out of the VCR! I kept resetting the unit and nothing worked. Finally, I decided to see what would happen if I stuck a tape in. It wouldn't go in because of the toothbrush! I took it out, reset the unit again and it was fixed.

Maybe the error is not F03, but FO3 meaning there is a FOREIGN OBJECT stuck in the VCR.
