Posted by on

  • JulesBoo Jun 03, 2008

    I have the same problem - it's stuck in that code. Says to recharge in regular temperature... got stuck there when in car using car charger. Have removed battery, tried to recharge with plug in charger in the house, pushed every button, and am now trying to run out the battery till it's dead (which is taking forever to keep it running - as it has an auto shut off). My guess is theres some sensor that isn't happy - but am about ready to throw accross the room to see if that will help it !!

H03 is a mech problem if I remember you need to take the bottom cover off and remove the mechanical assy (laser chassis) then you need to clean the worm gear (this is the gear that moves the laser back and forth) even the littlest amount of dirt will jame this gear and make the unit go into H03 Mode

I just solved it I think let's see how long it works. I took the battery used the AC Adapter. Hit it a couple of times on the bottom of it, then it worked:)

SOURCE: panasonic DVD ls 850 , H03 Code error

I was told by a close friend(Authorized Repair Centre) that,the reason Panasonic
discontinued the LS82 and came out with LS86 is because of the Head Rest Mount. The DVD was spinning in Vertical Mode instead of Horizontal.And the bumps it took,while attached to the seat was too much for the Laser assembly.
LS86 is a replica of LS82 just black in color. It Uses the Battery CGR-H712 same like LS 82. Power consumption on both is 22 watts.Yet they claim its 13 hrs. Thats bunch of BS. I have both ,which I bench tested with same settings. And it lasted between 8.5 to 8.75 hrs.Towards the end it was struggling.

Panasonic dvd-lx95 error code h03

Lube up the slider that the laser slides on (slides in towards the center of disc and back out). Check for any debris that may be present.

Portable dvd player h03 what to do fix it?

this error code means that there is something wrong with the laser lens most portable dvd players over time get weak motors or lenses you may try to take a small cloth or cotton ball and move the lens back and forth from the spindle to the end then place it as close to the spindle as you can then turn it on and you might be good to go! if not then you have a bad motor and may have to replace it! hope this helps!

Player will not read. Error code H03 shows up on screen.

Dirty worm gear on laser (dirt or particles got caught not letting the pick up move easy go take apart but be careful many small screws and gears.

Panasonic DVD ls 850 , H03 Code error

I have an LS82 and the following advice from fixed the problem for me. Note that the number of screws that hold the bottom on the machine vary depending on the model. Also the server frame might be plastic instead of metal:

the problem arrise from the laser lamb which moves up and down the disk through a mechanical shaft
I do believe when we press the back space for long time it will take the laser lamb beyond its limit and get stuck at the end of the rotating shaft so the servo motor gets difficulty and resistance to get it back to tract
all you have to do is open the back of the LS50 " 12 small screws"
mad.gif when you remove the back cover be carful not to damage the cables mad.gif .
you will find the servo motor and laser lamb on one metal structure hanged to the body by three rubber suspensions
remove the whole structre and turn it upside down slowly
move the small black rotating joints up or down you will notice the the mechanical shaft will start rotating and the laser lamb will start to move away from the servo motor relasing it from where it get stuck
and it will work perfect after that
return the back cover and screw the 12 screws and you are done

Code h03

Hi the code HO3 relates to their being a problem with the laser you could try using a lense cleaner and see if its just dust or something like that failing that its going to be getting the laser replaced let me know if you need further assistance.
If you type in your search box this
DVD-LS90 Portable DVD Player with screen HO3
then search this will then list a load of sites that cover your dvd player and will also tell you what that error code means have a look and if you was getting it repaired then their should be a few sites that are selling the parts you need ok

Code h03


On most Panasonic, error code HO3 indicates a mechanical problem, more specifically, the cradle that supports the laser eye could not traverse along its path. Corrective action requires opening the unit, cleaning the slider bar, plastic cogs, worm gear/drive. It may help to use a can of compressed air and re-lubricate appropriate parts. Since the unit is open and expectantly dust would be swirling after the use of the compressed air, it may be to your advantage to swab/clean the lens itself prior to closing.

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.
