Hmm, I have never heard anyone say that Oppo charged them for the drawer malfunction fix, because it's a defective part.
Maybe they didn't understand your issue, or your issue is actually a different problem, or you don't live in the USA.
AVfile and grubavs like this.

I actually live very close to their headquarters, in the U.S, so that's not the issue. Let me see if I can dig up the exact email they sent...

Okay, I guess I was mistaken about the quote -- here is their original response email to me:


Unfortunately it appears that the player will need to be repaired.

An Out of Warranty Repair for the BDP-83 will cost $79.00 plus shipping to us. This fee will cover all parts, labor, and return shipping to domestic United States addresses. You can purchase an Out of Warranty Repair Service at: http://www.oppodigital.com/proddetail.asp?prod=RSBDP83

Once we have received your order you will receive a return shipping authorization and instructions within 24 hours.


I suppose I got the "more than $100" assumption from remembering it would be $79 plus shipping to them, which would put it around $100 or so...


They also said this:


No Disc and Unknown Disc errors can be caused by the laser head being dirty or otherwise obstructed, or are due to the laser head wearing down. You can try to open the player and clean the laser head directly with a cotton swab and alcohol, but it is not guarantee that this will resolve your issues.

For the tray eject this will require a change in some hardware components to fix. We can offer to repair the tray free of charge, but if we need to replace the loader, we will have to charge you for the repair.

So, do what I did, if you live close... physically take it to them and save the shipping. The repair location I took it to was in Mountain View, CA.

That's what Bilbo Baggins hates!

Oh, I don't reside that close, grub; I meant more like a neighboring state...

DOH!

EDIT: but wait! That's even closer to my house! 'Course I hope I don't need to go to them again (for my 83, anyway)

Bluraychip.dk multi-region mod dead?

Years ago I installed the bluraychip.dk mod to make the player region free. Haven't watched a disc from a different region in years. Felt compelled to do so now and it appears that the mod no longer works. The premise used to be that one powered up the player by hitting a 1, 2, or 3 key on the remote--and that the player would then boot into Region A, B, or C. Does this not work any more? My machine is not auto-powering up when the remote is touched. A region B disc is getting rejected. Any help would be appreciated.
