Question about Panasonic DVD-LS50 Portable DVD Player
Had same problem here but then i found a soloution might help you helped me
I purchased my LS50 over 16 months ago. I had a H03 error before and it went away after sitting on the shelf for three days. It worked ok for another couple of months and then stopped again. The screen says reading but the motor is not spinning. , then i spotted that the laser lens is in the wrong place. When at resting location, the lens should be parked near to the spindle in the middle. The mechanism to move the lens backward and forward sometime get stuck at the end of its travel - furthest away from the spindle. If your player is out of warranty, then you maybe able to try this. Open up the bottom cover by taking out the screws - 10 or so. This will reveal the lens and motor module. Flip over the model and you should see the gear and shaft for the lens. Move the gear so that the lens move towards the centre. Click the covers back into place , reconnect the battery and try. If it works, put all the screws back. Mine was fixed this way but this is not a gaurantee that this will work on yours. Good luck.
Forgot to mention. You can also clean the gear shaft in case there are small particules stuck to the grease and affect the movement. After cleaning, apply a tiny bit of grease just to lubricate the moving shaft. Not too much. I am glad that the instructions help.
it helped plenty of friends hope it helps you

I am having the same problem. I went to Venezuela by Air Canada, and as I was waiting at the Airport, before checking in, I popped in a movie. I watched about half of the movie, I turned off and went to check in. I passed through customs, including those X-rays machines, and I aboarded the airplane. In it, I got bored and I decided to keep watching the movie I was seeing, then I found out that my portable DVD player wasn't working. I am getting the same message: Code H03. Did you go on trip too? Because think the X-rays machines broke the DVD player.
