^ The problem may be that the lens positioning motor is wearing out so that it can no longer track the disc accurately. That would require replacing the loader.

If you are not in the US, have you reached out to your local OPPO distributor about out-of-warranty service?

Oppo U.S. has told me that they do not have a spare replacement loader. Can the motor be repaired or maybe some grease could help?

The motor does make quite a loud grinding noise every time any disc is inserted or ejected. Sometimes, specifically while reading a Blu-ray disc on insertion after the player has run for about a couple of hours, it makes a loud stuttering sound like a tommy gun for about 30-45 seconds while trying to read the disc and then shows unknown/wrong disc. I have no issues with reading DVD or SACDs which work perfectly no matter how long the player is running(except for the motor making a noise while inserting/ejecting). Therefore there seems to be a possibility of the Blu-Ray lens having issues either from faulty lens or the inaccurate motor.

The local distributor has informed me that there are no replaceable parts available with them as they started their distribution much after the BDP 83 was discontinued and like most electronic parts it is more economical to replace rather than repair the parts. He has suggested that if possible I buy a replacement lens module if a spare is available online.

Here's something new that's been happening with my BDP-83 (amidst the drawer refusing to close or opening and closing on its own)...

When I turn the player on -- over the past couple of nights -- the drawer wants to open right upon startup, forcing it to crash into the glass door of the entertainment center it sits in. Of course, this causes the drawer to fly right back in, but then I have the open/close issue once I'm ready to load a disc...

You clearly have the loader problem that has plagued some 83 players. Oppo has fixed many (maybe all) of these here in the U.S for free but if you are not in the U.S. that is probably of no help to you. I seem to remember someone posting somewhere in these threads that they had found a place to buy a loader that was a direct replacement for the Oppo's (and that it was fairly inexpensive) but I am not sure which models these applied to. Possibly a call to Oppo in the U.S. might provide you some info as to where you might find the parts so you can do the repair yourself. There have also been postings in these threads about how to clean the laser and lubricate the loader parts, which may help. Sorry I can't give you specific messages. Maybe someone else can.

I think the 83 is approaching a place in its lifespan where the best option for DIY repairs is to buy a player off eBay and frankenstein 2 players into one.

Thanks for your feedback, Jazz; indeed, I am in the U.S. and close to OPPO's headquarters, so that's not a problem...I suppose it's the loader issue, as you've described...

The dilemma for me is that I don't want to buy another Blu-ray player with OPPO's 4K deck supposedly around the corner (end of this year?) -- I'd have it repaired, but I'm kinda waiting for it to really "die" before I send it into them.

Oh, and also -- with regard to your comment about OPPO fixing most of these "for free"...you mean aside from the $79 or whatever it is for the out-of-warranty charge?

You may have waited too late. From a post earlier this week the out of country person said that Oppo US doesn't have anymore loaders..

Free is free other than the cost to send it to them. They even paid to return ship it to me..
