Question about Oppo Digital BDP-83 Blu-Ray Player

1 Answer

Our Oppo blu-ray player is make a strange noise and sometimes it won't open, close or turn off....we bought it on January 10, 2010 so I assume it's still under warranty. Do you have a suggestion of where to take/send it, or a solution to fix it ourselves? We live in the North Hollywood, CA area. Thank you.

If it makes a noise when you try to open the drawer, then I would suspect the drawer mechanism is faulty. They are usually belt driven and therefore could be just a new belt needed. Or the mechanism requires oiling . If under guarantee then where did you buy it (send it back).

I have a OPPO DV-980H DVD player and the drawer won't open. Is there a mechanical release or some other solution?

You would have to open the unit to inspect and see if something is jammed in the mechanism--failing there if it is not an expensive unit--cheaper to just replace as I now see units selling for as little as 20 dollars.

Display is all weird the on/ off is almost a hot pink the open/close light is off

Send the player back to OPPO as they have become aware of this issue. OPPO has a flat $49 repair service for the LIFETIME of the unit after the warrantee period expires. I experienced the exact same issue and it's the main power board. OPPO will provide you with an RMA# when you call them, give them a credit card number for the $49 and then pack the player securely and ship it to them. They pay the return shipping and in about ten days you'll have it back working better than new with new firmware and the latest upgrades as well. You'll have to reset your Region Free settings and all your special parameters but it's a super deal. And they then warranty it for 90 days and if it breaks down at any time in the future again after that, it's still only $49 for another complete fix.

Samsung blu ray player bp 1500 is acting strange

Disc loading mechanism fault. Not loads properly. Might be of the fault of any broken gear wheel, of a loose loading belt or so. Contact any service technician to get this set repaired.
