Disconnect EVERYTHING from the 83. Unplug the power plug. While still unplugged press and hold the front panel power button for a few seconds to discharge any residual power.
Let the unit sit for an hour -- still unplugged.
Take the 83 to a DIFFERENT ROOM (different wall power circuit). Plug it in, but don't attach anything else to it.
See if it will now power up -- based on the Front Panel display. If not, call OPPO Tech Support. They have reasonably priced flat-rate service for players out of warranty.
If it DOES power up, take it back to its normal location, plug it in (nothing else connected) and try again. If still good, power down, attach the cables and try again.
If the player is now working but the problem returns later, call OPPO Tech Support for additional help diagnosing this.
This is probably a failed power supply (i.e., the player needs service), but the above procedure is also trying to eliminate whether you have a wall power problem (including perhaps a temporary glitch which confused the player), or whether the player might have overheated, or whether a faulty cable connection might be shorting the power.
If you've got the player in an enclosed space, check to see that its fan is coming on after you use it for a while. And consider improving ventilation to that space.
If the player works while uncabled, but fails immediately when the cables are re-attached, check for a faulty (shorted) cable. Also try a different socket at the other end of whichever cable turns out to be the culprit.
