    I have the same problem. It just started, like two weeks ago doing this. A shame. I have had this player since Jan 01.

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.

Has power. When


It is due to the reading LED inside it, you just check whether it is working or not.

The Open/close does not work. Power is on and it


First try resetting the player. Unplug for 1/2 hour-1hr., press and hold power button for 3 seconds, wait 1/2 hour, plug back in and it should work. Otherwise you can pry open the door with a paper clip. Slowly pull door as far back as it will go, then press eject button and see if everything aligns itself back on track.

Panasonic DVD RV31 does not read DVDs created by Windows Movie Maker


The only thing that has worked for me is to make a copy of the disk after burning it in Movie maker.
