This is what i got from Josh Smith Online, this work-around requires opening the appliance, so before you start and follow this, please check on the warranty status of the unit.

error HO2 which more or less means the unit is shot. The problem centers round a spindle issue that is a known design flaw. Basically what happens is that the spindle gets warm, expands, and is then pushing on the top of the player .

You can see the tray which rotates with the DVD in. To fix this HO2 error I first had to start the spin by pushing the dvd counterclockwise gently. After that the DVD player would work but only without the cover on. This is the solution for now, though I plan to modify the case some in order to use the cover again. For now the DVD player slides into our entertainment stand and hides the fact that the cover is missing.

It would need for this player to get to a repair shop however it is not advisable that you still get it repaired it would cost you as much as a new player...there are support available but again you would be spending as much as 2-3 new cheaper players..

You can try doing this remove the top of the unit, place a disk in the unit press play and gently give the DVD a gentle push in a clockwise direction.
This disk should then get up to speed and start playing. It also unlocks the error.
This is a solution by expert bmwrider before and it work for the other client before you may want to try that..

Good luck.....

An HO2 error is either a problem with the optical pickup or a spindle. This means that there is something stuck near the optical pickup. It is possible to fix this by shaking the unit although I would advise against that. It would be best if you take the unit in for repair although you can open the device and check the lens and spindle are for anything that might have stuck.

Code HO2 means that your player is sensitive to scratches on cd's or dvd's so they won't play

IS the dvd player covered by warranty?

ho2 seems to be a problem with the disk motor that spins the disk, its not spining.

Posted on Aug 11, 2008

  • Ekse Aug 11, 2008

    another expert on this website has suggested a possible fix to this:



    IF YOUR DEVICE IS COVERED BY WARRANTY DONT OPEN IT contact your dealer instead for repairs or replacement.



    Remove the top of the unit, be carefull not to touch things, touching the wrong thing can give you a shock. After you have removed the top, place a disk in the unit press play and gently give the dvd a gentle push in a clockwise direction.



    The disk should then get up to speed and start playing and clear the error code.



    Basicly the motor is either faulty or 'stuck' you need to give it a little spin. if that doesn't work you will most likely have to get it replaced.



    Credits to BMWRider for poiting out what the problem.

You listed the TV, what kind of DVD player?
And...
Did it work before, and it stopped working?
Did you just hook it up, and it has never worked?
Have any other components been changed recently?
Does it do it with all disks in the DVD or just one of them?

The plaver will not play says HO2


1) Dirty or poor pick-up.
2) Sled motor sticking (bad sled motor or contaminated lubricant on the sled rails).
3) Faulty spindle motor. (especially if spindle motor is spinning with top off and no disc inserted).

DVD-RV31 also tends to suffer from dry joints to the surface mount IC's and that could cause all sorts of erratic operation.

After i insert DVD it reads then say HO2 then STOP= how do i fix this


You will need to get a can of the compressed air or use an air compressor if you have one. Then remove the housing cover if you can and use the compressed air to blow out any dust and debris inside the unit. Also blow air into the inside of the dvd tray. This has been the common fix for the HO2 error on your DVD player. You could also use a DVD lens cleaning kit.

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,,,
