Open up the bottom cover by taking out the screws - 10 or so. This will reveal the lens and motor module. Flip over the model and you should see the gear and shaft for the lens. Move the gear so that the lens move towards the centre. Click the covers back into place , reconnect the battery and try. If it works, put all the screws back. Mine was fixed this way but this is not a gaurantee that this will work on yours. Good luck.

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 does not read disc-code HO3


I followed a few, of the already suggested answers. The first one I tried was to open up the back and use compressed air to blow out lint, food crumbs and dog hair that had found there way into the machine. This seem to have worked just fine. Now the machine is working, much to my daughters delight.

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


Hi,

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.

Portable DVD player won't read discs.


There are 2 errors, ho3 and ho2, I can't remember which one is which. One means the laser is going and one means it's a dirty track. I suggest you first very gently clean the lens. If that doesn't work you take apart the player and clean the whole track that the laser moves on along with everything around it (keeping in mind that the laser is fragile). If that doesn't work than I can't help anymore without seeing it.

Error H03


I have had this problem for 2 years, mech.is hanging up. mine was replaced.... 3 weeks later same problem. I take out the disc and very GENTLY press one direction or the other to free it up. works great for a whole movie or several movies in a row. A small amount of electronic lube helps, just make sure you don't get it near the laser head or it will mess things up. Just clean it off real well if you get some on it.
