Officially, on the record:

historically, for DVDs: the 983H

currently, for Blu-rays, DVDs, media files, and HDMI input from an HTPC: BDP-103D.

Note: I am not an audiophile, else I would need more expensive models.

FWIW, my 83 stopped playing any BD's. DVD's were fine but nothing else. Disassembled the unit down to the optical drive, cleaned the lenses gently with swabs and a bit of alcohol and all is back to working perfectly. There were only a few cat hairs and bits of dust in there but that and slightly cloudy lenses were enough apparently. It's nice to have the trusty Oppo up and running again!

I took the mod off because Oppo told me to do so, but I am pretty sure there is nothing to with this, because I installed it in the first month I bought the player in 2009) and it has always worked perfectly with it.

I believe the power supply board died because of one capacitor (that has a little bulge on of it). I sent pictures to them but they didn't seem to agree with me.

Anyway they offer to send another power supply board and another tray, but they said they where not sure that would solve the problem. The shipping cost for trying one solution that was not certain was too much risk.

I decide to send the player to them. It is on the way.

I cant shake the feeling it should not have happened because my player had very little usage (perhaps too little usage).

Just to correct one assertion I made about a fuse on the power board supply, now I am not sure it is a fuse or not because it is soldered to the PCB of the PSB.

Thank you and everybody for the suggestions and help.

Best regards.

Good luck Sidney!
