I have a Panasonic DVD/Video CD/CD Player, Model DVD-RV31. I've had it for 4 years plus. Tonight, I put in a DVD to play, it tries to read it several times, and then I get an error code H02. The manual says to press the power to the standby mode and then back to on. This does not appear to have done a thing as I still get the same error. Any assistance you can provide will be appreciated.
Hi, I have the DVD-RV31 model as well, and as of yesterday (November 21) got this error (H02) message as well. I found a workaround for now: Turn off V.S.S. I did that, and it started reading DVDs again. Hope this helps anyone. Arie
I have the HOS message on my DVD player how do I fix?
Arie and Nick, This might be a moot point by now, but I've just now fixed that error (H02). I think Nick was onto something, Arie. I opened the case and started the head spinning. It worked great then. But, I couldn't leave well enough alone. I pushed the clips that hold the reading head in place and removed the whole mechanism to have a look at it. I DO NOT recommend that! But, I got it back in place and now things are hunky-dori. My theory is that, like most electro-mechanical devices, this problem is mechanical in nature. I believe what's happened is a mechanical misalignment in the reading head carriage. Back in the dark ages, I was a electrical engineer who specialized in computer-controlled machinery (CNC). But I still remember a few things. At $50 each, I'll get a new one if it quits again.
I have the same DVD player and got the same problem the same month as you did...did they build ion a self destruct mode :-) Did you ever resolve the problem, I'm still have the H02 issue.
