Question about Panasonic DVD-LS850
Panasonic DVD ls 850 , H03 Code error , please can anyone assist me how to fix this ????
I have an LS82 and the following advice from www.avsforum.com 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"
when you remove the back cover be carful not to damage the cables .
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

I used the solution posted above and have successfully fixed the player. Thanks to bytecrawler for posting this. My daily mass transit commutes are now much more tolerable than before.
One piece of advice I'd give to anyone attempting to repair the unit, is to do a thorough vacuuming of the interior once the case is opened. Mine was a gift to my son who is gone to college. He used it while eating lots of snacks, thus resulting in a bunch of **** getting sucked into the unit somehow. It only takes small particles of junk to clog the tiny gears which operate the optical drive listed above, and it required implementing a repair 3 times until all the particles were removed.
Besides a vacuum, try using a q-tip to lift any dust or tiny particles remaining on the actual gears or the silver axel attached to the main gear. Be very careful snapping the unit back together.
I purchased a tiny precision phillips screwdriver set with a variety of tiny 0-3 mm phillips heads to do the job at Lowes, $6 cost.

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.
