    yeahh same here its making me so annoyed

  • willeyjfer May 24, 2008

    I could get a DVD to play for a few minutes & then it would stop & give me the H07 message on the player. Ofcourse I could no longer watch the DVD. How do I clear it & get DVD to play the entire movie?

    I have tried to find something which would clear it but have had no luck.

    I did unplug the DVD & get it to play again, however; it stopped in the same spot & gave the same error message.

    Help :)

  • ykmontalvo Jun 20, 2008

    I couldn't get rid of the same problem. I thought it was over-heated. But I haven't used it for a while and so it should have cooled already, and I still get the same error message.

  • anndorbin Jul 04, 2008

    Same as the others..... will play for a minute or two then the HO7 comes up and .... nothing.

The silicone worked perfectly. Two sprays saved me the cost of a new one. As good as new.

I have the H07 message on my dvd, tried unplugging it and when I plugged it on again it played one dvd right through but the next dvd I got the H07 message again. Rang a repairer, said it is probably the spindle motor and will cost $170-250 to repair, not worth it, trash it a buy a new one much cheaper.

Suggestion for user incomplete:
I got the error code H07 immediately after checking to see if the RV-32 would read a .wav CD. I got some signs of life after trying
this procedure, but it started working again after jarring the player.

"Mike on Dec 26th, 2005 at 12:08 PM
Score: 2
Not sure when I bought mine but got the H07 error, tells me now that my discs are not readable. I called Panasonic C/S, person had me reinitialize DVD player by pressing and holding at the same time the reverse, pause, and on/off button. The word "INIT" displayed in the window, and I held the buttons down until "INIT" disappeared and the 00:00 reappeared. Didn't help my unit but may help someone else. C/S rep said most likely my spindle motor is bad. I am going to try oiling the spindle motor, as suggested in an earlier post, and will probably do some cleaning as well to hopefully prevent the H02/03 error codes as suggested in earlier postings."

I have used my player quite a bit and thought it might need the new motor fix, which is not worth the trouble and expense, and was going to try the lubrication approach, but it's working just fine again.

Some units might respond to being opened up and simply spinning the disc.

I cannot explain why it locked up and gave the error code, but a little research, along with some trial and error has it up and running again.

There's probably quite a few RV-32s out there that will respond to this remedy.

Good luck to all........

The H07 error means Spindle motor drive error. The Spindle Motor, the one that spins the dvd, has to be replace to solve the problem.

Posted on Dec 09, 2007


Thanks, that worked for me too. Just had to give the spinner a little nudge.

Posted on Feb 07, 2007


I opened it up and sprayed silicone on the center where the disc snaps on. I also sprayed from a side angle to try to aim it towards bearings/works underneath. It worked!

Dvd rv32 keeps saying hot and wolnt play dvds

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.

DVD stops spinning displays code H07. Repair procedure?

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.

hope this helps

I am getting an H07 code

If memory serves me well, code H07 means that spindle motor has to be replaced. It is ease enough to test, remove top cover from the unit, load DVD disk, when disk is loaded try to give it clockwise push. If unit starts and works - spindle motor is the problem, if it will not start then spindle motor plus driver IC has to be replaced.

Error code h07

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 do this!
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. Let it soak in a while and try it again - you should now find it works.
Why this works I just don't know - it just does! (:-)
