I have a panasonic dvd/cd player model dvd-cv47 and it wont read any dvd's. in the display it reads "HO 7". i no longer have my manual and have no idea what the error message means. i took the top off and the device that picks up and spins the dvd's seems to be a bit loose.

1. Check that the disc is free of scratches and dirt or dust. If the disk is dusty, use a soft, lint-free cloth and wipe the disk gently, using straight strokes from the center of the disc to the outer edge.
2. Make sure that you are inserting the disk with the plain, reflective side down.
2. Try listening to another CD (not burned) that you have purchased. If the other cd is giving you the same error message, return the cd player to the store, because it is defective.
3. Ensure that the disc you are using is not a DVD disc. It is easy to confuse the two.
Hope that helps! Good Luck!
I have just recently posted a cure for this - but here we go again.
Fault H07 is the fault code for the spindle/disc motor and to cure it
With the lid of the player removed, locate the spindle and where
the motor shaft goes into the motor itself, use a little light oil or
WD40. Don't drench the area or you'll really have fun cleaning it up!
Let it soak in a while and try it again - you should now find it
I am now finding quite a few owners of Panasonic DVD players are starting to get this message on the display. The same happened to me!
I got mine to work. I looked around a bit on the web, and it seems that HO7 means that the disc isn't spinning. Whether it's the motor that's bad, or just dirt etc, the problem is that the disc doesn't spin. I took the cover off of mine and blew out the dirt. Then i gave it a spin by hand to get it started. I'm not sure if I just had dirt clogging up the gears, but at least it works (for now). Good luck on yours.
Here's the fix http://www.ledcar.com/pdvdh07/
I've replaced the motor once before on my 5 disk player to fix the HO7
error. The second time it appeared I tried the fix at the above link
instead of going thru the hassel of the repair shop.
You may need to apply WD40 multiple times to cure the problem,
depending on how stiff the rotation of the spindle feels. After the
first application the player ran for about 5 minutes before the HO7
error reappeared. After the second application we watched an entire
movie with no issues. we'll see how long this lasts. The fix was simple
and hopefully wont have to be repeated soon.
