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.

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.

Panasonic dvd player, wont play error code HO3 keeps coming up, took it back to shop they wont help as cant find receipt


On my DVD-LV50, I was able to re-initialize and fix a different error (error code H05). It might work for you, too.

With no disk in the player, press and hold these buttons for 4 seconds:
  1. Back skip -- [ |<< ]
  2. Pause -- [ || ]
  3. Play -- [ > ]
The screen will go blank, then say "Initialized."

After that, it worked like new.

I hope that helps.
