Question about Panasonic DVD-RV31 DVD Player
DVD-RV31 cannot read any dvd. When I turn on the power, the following happens. It says welcome to DVD world. The it says Read. Two "0"s appear to the left of the word "Read", then disappear. This happens four times. Then it says H02. That disappears and it says stop.
The motor is on its way out - the H02 code indicates motor failure as in it cannot spin the disc. You can sometimes fix it but for how long is anyone's guess. Disconnect from the power, remove the three rear screws and two screws on each side (total 7) and lift off the outer cover. Now if you carefully reconnect the power BE VER YCAREFULLY NOT TO TOUCH ANY PARTS INSIDE THE CASE and put a DVD disc in as per normal, you'll will see that when the tray closes, the upper platen (a honeycomb disc) that sandwiches the DVD to the lower platen does not spin - it should. Give a gentle spin clockwise and it should spin up and the DVD will play. You may need to restart if you missed your chance first time. If you switch off and on, eject and close the tray, the spin should happen as normal. If it doesn't, your motor is knacked and not an economical repair. Buy a new player. If it spins time and time again, you may well have temporarily fixed it for a while.

all you need to do is use the DVD Service Disc that you got when you bought your DVD player,, or go to www.panasonic.com and e-mail them about getting the codes removed so you can play overseas DVD, they sent me a disk for FREE and guess what it worked,,,, it comes with the instructions, here is what it says,,,
INSERT DISK- and confirm "STOP" is displayed...
USING THE REMOTE press "SETUP"
