^ 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.
