Re: Troubleshooting -- Displays H07 code
The H07 error message in Panasonic DVDs means problem in the motor. It can be something like "motor isn't spinning-up" or "spindle motor problem".
When you call Panasonic, they will tell you that they cannot tell what H07 means until a technician look at it. Obviously, they won't admit it is a known problem.
Estimate cost: from $50 to $70 dollar to replace the motor + labor + tax.

The problem is in the laser pickup assembly, over time the laser becomes weak until it can no longer play the disc. Buy a DVD cleaning kit and follow instructions, this may give more life to the player, if no change! it is far cheaper to replace than to repair.
H07 is a common error code for Panasonic DVD players. It means the traverse unit (spindle motor/laser assembly contained in one block) has failed. Usually it is the spindle motor part of this unit which fails first, (i.e. it doesn't spin the disc at all) causing the problem, but sometimes the laser can also fail as well. Because the motor and laser are contained in one device block, the whole part has to be changed, and this can only be done by an authorised service centre. The only trouble with that is the cost. Many DVD drives experience this (different brands giving different error codes) so it's not just confined to Panasonic.
There are only 2 ways to go here; either be prepared to spend a fortune in a workshop service to have the traverse block replaced/aligned (which would include a brand new laser), or simply buy a new player - which would give you a new remote AND an optional extended warranty if available; this would be considerably cheaper than repairing the old one.
Don't be put off from owning Panasonic - they are generally good products.
I think you mean the front display shows 'H07' which means the laser/spindle motor assembly (as one part - also known as a traverse unit) has failed. H07 is a common error code with the Panasonic series of DVD playback decks. Because the traverse unit is a multi-operation device, and because the player is a budget model, the repair/replacement of this part to restore your player back to fully functional condition as well as labour costs could prove expensive - hardly worthwhile. It seems Panasonic have been using substandard components within their products for years now, designed to fail just outside their minimum warranty period.
H07 is the error code for Disk not Spinning. Open the case, open the DVD rack. Put 2 drops of 3-in-1 Oil on a Q-tip and rub the side of the spindle (located under the optical "eye"). Don't drip! Then close the DVD-rack with a DVD in it. Work the DVD in clockwise direction. Hopefully it will start to spin again.
Spindle motor/laser assembly is faulty. This part is not repairable - it has to be replaced by an authorised service centre. It may not be economical via this route, since the unit is not a DVD recorder. H07 is an indication of the above issue. Cheaper to buy a new DVD player or recorder than trying to get the faulty one repaired outside warranty.
You can try to clean the laser by opening the unit and wiping gently with a cue tip or cotton swab, but if you are getting a H07 errorit may be somethng more serious and require a replacementof the dvd drive.I hope this helps. Good luck.
hey I just messed around with mine it was showing that code H07 like the others its kinds the same except it holds 4 more disc, I took the top off then I took the thing that holds cd still off!, there should be a brass thing I think thats for the ground, so I ended up putting some synthetic oil on the rails silver poles that the laser slides on, and where the disc sits on that black circle under it, you can see the motor it has a white thing on the motores pole so I just put a few drops on there then spinds it put some more on hoping it works its way DOWN INTO THE MOTOR thats the H07 not spining fast enough!! I put a disk in while everything was apart and its playing right now, the oil I desided to use was the stuff I use for my paintball gun lol! its really thin and slippory and im sure it will last for awhile!.... going to add more after 15 minutes of playing just to make sure its really lubed! hope this helps!!!!
