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 .

My DVD player won't play i'm getting a code HO2 on the display screen. ModeL # DVD-RV31


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.

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.

Dvd wont play ...each time you insert a DVD it shows DVD HO2...


I had the same Problem, player was only 13months old when the error HO2 appeared (typical huh?) anyway 2 years of this thing getting shifted from cupboard,wardrobe,attic, (did'n't want to throw it out cause it cost me £700), finally it came to fix it or bin it time. scoured the net to no avail, lost the rag and half dismantled it..then during all of this ( oops I'm going on a bit LOL)
you can hear a sound as though the disc is trying to be read, after 100's of attempts to get it to work, I finally noticed the disc had not changed position. (disc was not spinning) pointed to the Motor??
what I did to fix this was unplug from main's, remove top cover until you can see the top of the dvd disc, got hold of a pencil with a rubber on one end, plug back in, switch power on, and gently pushed top of disc ( clockwise ) and it kick started it off

that was over 3 years ago and the player is still going strong
I know its a bit rough, but nothing ventured nothing gained ;)

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:
