Question about Panasonic Televison & Video
Many Panasonic DVD units use a traverse unit (spindle motor/laser assembly) - and the H07 error indicates a failure of this component block (the spindle motor is the part of the unit which fails first).
This part is not repairable, it can only be replaced by a qualified authorised Panasonic technician - then it must be aligned and the firmware updated/configured to the player. The problem with this is the costs involved; a new spindle motor/laser unit (through Panasonic directly) would cost around $200 trade plus the labour/fitting/alignment - it could be a further $200 - making it uneconomical to fix - since this would be about the price of a new player.
However, you can submit the unit to a service centre, for a quote on the likely part/labour cost(s), then make a decision afterwards - whether to go ahead with the repair or cut your losses and buy a new player.
Blu-Ray players (with DVD playback support) are becoming cheaper to buy nowadays while repairs to DVD players become more expensive. It's up to you.
