I have just bought a Panasonic DVD-LA95 but did
you need to check that it supports pal output, if its a european unit
(check the manual and player bottom for the ce mark) then it will play pal discs and will need reverting to the multiregion upgrade ( a disc and a few button presses about £20 online)) if its an american unit then it wont play pal discs even if you do manage to multiregion it.

Panasonic LA95 Portable DVD
any flashing red powerlight ?? (assuming theres any charge left)
if the powerlight flashes quickly then the units kaput ( bin it)
slow flashing means the microswitch may be stuck (the one that turns off the screen when you close the lid.
you may have to be sneaky at a dealer and ask to plug in to a new mains unit ( most new panasonics still use the same power supply voltage and ampage. if it works then run away quickly and go buy a universal power supply, if it doesnt , well your in the right place tobuy a new one ??

Flashing red light Panasonic portable DVD-LA95
check the microswith near the hinge .
its generally located on near the back right corner of the player , on the control surface. it looks like a very small white plastic button or pip. sometimes these stick down and look like part of the player casing, when they actually are a switch. it needs to be raised , so when the lid is closed it pushes the pip down and turns the screen off. Try prising it gently free with a pin or needle.
this happened tome and i was on the verge of binning it. when i looked at the manual and it says
power light flashing slowly means screen turned off.
if the light is flashing very quickly then im afraid its knackerred and just not worth repairing.
if this is helpful to you then just drop me a line at

Portable DVD player won't read discs.
There are 2 errors, ho3 and ho2, I can't remember which one is which. One means the laser is going and one means it's a dirty track. I suggest you first very gently clean the lens. If that doesn't work you take apart the player and clean the whole track that the laser moves on along with everything around it (keeping in mind that the laser is fragile). If that doesn't work than I can't help anymore without seeing it.

You bought it on Ebay ! ! Why did the seller move it on...
I suspect that the decoder is getting 'hot' - same principle as the processor on your PC.
If you are able - I would suggest opeing the unit up (so that the main board is visible) but still able to power up.
Obtain a hair dryer that has a 'cool' blow on it. Start your unit up, while blowing with cool air - this will identify if this is thermal related...

DVD player just shuts off when using
As you say - - if it does not happen all the time, you have the worst problem ever.
AN INTERMITTENT FAULT - Horrid
You are likely to be correct, and have a loose connection / poor solder joint / dry joint within the unit.
Time and patience could find this fault - as long as you have a soldering iron, and a good avo..

Ouch - This generally one of two things.
1 - Run up speed is not sufficient due to motor wear.
2 - The laser head sits within a 'plastic' runner, which wear down slowly, causing the laser to be misaligned - therefore not reading adequately.
Depending how adventurous you are feeling - you could dismantle the unit - and 'space off' the laser unit (Single piece of paper) this will lift up the laser.
Or you may be able to adjust the calibration power of the laser using a variable pot (unlikely to be available as these are generally hard coded nowadays - and not physical pots)

PANASONIC PORTABLE DVD PLAYER ERROR CODE 3. MODEL NUMBER LS5
This could be the laser going or a dirty track. I suggest that you first clean the laser gently. If this doesn't work you must take the player apart and clean the track that the laser moves on along with everything around it (keeping in mind that the laser is fragile).

Getting sound from speakers when heaphones are plugged in.
Hi,I know that the earphone jack usually has the switch built in, and often it takes a certain "End Shape" on the Headphone Plug to actually "Activate" it... I am wondering if this is not actually your problem? and maybe ya just gotta get the "Right One"?
Sometimes I have seen the "Switch" in the Jack fail and cease to "Cut out" the speakers... which generally means replacement.
