How do I repair a spindle motor malfunction?

Our Panasonic DVD player will not play discs. The error message is H02, and this website states that it is "a spindle motor malfunctioning." Can it be fixed?

Thanks! Kim

Kim, it is a common fault with this model. You will have to do it in stages. Remove the drive as shown on on here. then first you remove the terminal PCB by unscrewing the screws, then desolder the solder connection and remove the connectors.

If you have a junk player you can probably take the spindle motor out and use it as a replacement. Make sure the platter is the same height. "That's the plastic disc mounted on the shaft of the motor.

You'll also need a screwdriver for those 2 very small screws that hold the motor in place and a soldering iron. Make sure you solder the red & black wires back in the right places otherwise the motor will run backwards.
