I guess either the tape head is dirty and needs cleaning or you should email Panasonic with that question after reading the instruction guide's troubleshooting section.

These H errors may refer to either the laser pickup or spindle motor or both. In this case, H03 and H07 are both spindle motor related. The only trouble is that this part is not serviceable, you cannot dissect it to clean it etc., so it must be replaced (most models I have dealt with have the laser/spindle motor as one part - known as a traverse unit) along with the laser which is also part of this device.

If you cannot hear any discs spinning when you load them, and you should be able to, then the motor within the traverse unit has given out. This can be expensive to replace unfortunately. I advise that you probably take the player to a repair shop - preferably an authorised Panasonic agent, get a free quote and make a decision afterwards as to what you wish to do.

Filed under: Tech 2 weeks ago my Panasonic DVD-RV41 DVD player showed an 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 .

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.

Panasonic DVD-LX9 "disc may not be played in your region" error


Try cleaning the lens with a cleaner?
So it only reads music/Audio CDs and won't play DVDs?
Do you get an HO2 or HO7 error? If it is that it might be
the spindle motor.


You might try this website also to reflash the firmware:

Error Message H02


I have had this problem on numerous times. Once while in warranty. Discussed with technician and he reported that the gears get dirty and stick and need cleaning. Since last year, I get this message every 3-4 months. I take out all the screws from the bottom, open the cast carefully, and use some canned air, clear all the gears, gently rotate all of them. Put everything back together and should work fine.
