Pros:Great picture

Cons:Motor died twice

I purchased a Panasonic DVD-LS50 7" Portable DVD Player on November 23, 2004. The motor died in April 2005 with an error code H03.

I have had my DVD player back a whole 7 weeks (June 2005) after getting the H03 code repaired when I got the H03 code again. I only turned the unit on 3 times (I'm afraid it would break again and I need it in times of emergencies). The repair center had replaced the Shaft Assembly, Interior Gears, Traverse Motor, and Optical Pick Up Assembly.

I called the Director of Consumer Affairs at Panasonic, to discuss the repeat problem. He was nice enough to call me after I wrote a complaint letter to Panasonic regarding my first H03 code. Now I am calling on him again. He said he will get back to me but it "shouldn't be happening."

I want my money back but I don't think that will happen. I feel like I threw my money away. I, too, am considering buying a cheaper model. I am also considering starting a petition about this terrible product. A class action lawsuit has also come to mind.
