I own a Panasonic DVD playerS35 and I have been getting the error H07 every time I load a dvd and try to play it...
The dvds are in good shape and the system was working until yesterday... Nothing much happened to it aside from the fact that we connected it to another tv (note that connecting it to the old tv has not solved the problem either)
Any idea what this means and how I can fix this?

Re: Panasonic DVD playerS35 error H 07
H07 is the fault code for the disc motor and here is what you need to do to remedy it.
The cover of the player will have to be removed to do this. Locate the the actual motor shaft and where it goes into the motor itself, put a little drop of light oil or WD40. Let it soak in for a little while and try it again. I'm sure you will find it now works.
I had this problem on Panasonic NV-VP31 DVD/VCR unit and I have had no more trouble since!
HOPE THIS HAS HELPED - ENJOY!

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.
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.
The "H07" is an error code, this particular error code refers to the dvd spindle drive motor. Effectively the spindle motor that spins the DVD isn't turning correctly and on occassion this can be that the spindle & bearings need lubricating due to partial siezure. But really this should only be done by somebody with a bit of technical know-how to avoid further damage to the machine or indeed an electrical injury to the person under taking the task. I can only suggest that you contact a Panasonic repair shop and to see if it is cost effective to repair.
The last time I opened up my Panasonic DVD-CV52, I looked at the little white bush on the motor spindle, it has a small spring which presses against the side of the bush.
I can see no purpose for this spring/bush other than to provide some drag to the motor.
Anyway, I removed the spring, so that the bush would no longer drag against the shaft, that was a few years back, and I haven't had a problem since.
Of course a temporary solution is to oil the bush! The www.ledcar.com/pdvdh07/ link mentioned above provides an excellent pictorial guide to disassemble and reassemble the player.
While stopped, press and hold REWIND and PAUSE on the unit and then also press and hold OPEN/CLOSE on the unit until Initialized appears from the display. Turn the unit off and on again.
If it is still not working, Panasonic Consumer Support recommends having the product checked by an authorized Panasonic service center.
