The situation is the same. Report it to Oppo.

In important to note if this is a hardware bug present in a X% of the production of the product. Because is interesting to see the same behavior. How many users reports and return the unit for replace/repair?.

More important, what is the cause? Power supply defective, mother board defective, voltage variation, etc.

You will not know the cause until they get the player and inspect it. It is too new or product for anyone to know "general causes of failures".

Bypass any power conditioner and switch and connect direct to your walled power outlet. Do you hear the same noise?

What happens if you completely disconnect it and move it into another room, such as the kitchen, and leave it in Standby?

The player itself could be working slightly below specifications, as the coil on your power supply could be working below nominal spec.

Wow, I thought I had been the only one. These are the exact symptoms of the problem I had quite some time ago. It was a good joke because everyone assumed it was because I opened my player to take those pics, since I was the only one who had ever experienced this hardware problem. Now I see like 3 other people have too.

I feel vindicated.

Unfortunately, it required a swap-out with OPPO. Fortunately, they did a lightning-fast cross-ship which reinforced one of the reasons we all chose OPPO in the first place: CUSTOMER SERVICE.

"Your" isn't the same as "you're". "There", "their" and "they're" are also not the same. Please learn the difference.

And... it's "couldn't care less". Thank you. :)

I have got Oppo BD player just one week and after watching several discs, there is serious problem! When I open track after playing disc it is empty, disc stays inside player! Is it possible to repair it easily at home? Did you hear about this problem with Oppo BD player? Thanx!

You likely had some adhesive substance which was on the inner ring of one of your discs, which has not transferred to the loader.

Unfortunately for you, the shield which covers the loader in the BDP-83 is almost impossible to get off without proper training.

You can try pressing Eject then immediately tapping the top of the player to see if the disc does not drop into the tray. Otherwise, you will likely need to send the player to OPPO, as they will need to clean your loader to ensure future discs do not stay in the player.

Close the tray and turn the player off for a couple hours, letting it cool completely. Then do as Neuromancer suggested, tapping on the top of the player while pressing eject button.

update: it's been over 10 minutes and still nothing. i'm sending OPPO an email.
and i'll watch some Mad Men episodes instead.

I couldn't get Disc 1 to load. It loads the FBI warning screens (and the bit about the 2-3 min load times), and then freezes after 0:07 and stays stuck at a black screen.

Disc 3 loaded the 20th Century Fox logo, and then froze at 0:10, just like yours.

Apologies if this is covered elsewhere, but can someone tell me if I can use a USB wireless adaptor (G adaptor left over from an old Tivo which I've used for a laptop successfully) to access my wireless network for BD-Live instead of purchasing the wireless bridge kit? The FAQ on the Oppo site suggests that I cannot, but I'd like to order the -83 and wanted to know if I need the wireless bridge as well (can't use ethernet from where the BD player will be). Much appreciated.

thanks. hadn't heard of anyone else yet.
OPPO mentioned they're getting the set later this week. can't wait. i'm holding onto this rental until a fix comes out.

You'll need an ethernet-to-wireless adapter. A lot of people are using them. See Does the player have built-in wireless networking?

Also, not sure if the player from Amazon comes with the free calibration disc like it does from Oppo (no mention on the Amazon site about it). Finally, I am wondering if the players from Oppo might already have the latest firmware version and the players from Amazon might not. Anyone bought this player from Amazon recently?
Thanks!

Depends on what you want. Shipping from Oppo is faster. Amazon has free shipping and Oppo is $18. You can get an extended warranty through Oppo (so the same great Oppo service for many years) from Oppo's site. From Amazon, you get some 2-star rated (with 25 1-stars), 3rd party extended warranty that will take weeks and weeks to resolve your issues.

Finally, in my case it was a no-brainer. I live in KY and Amazon charges 6% sales tax. Oppo direct does not.

On my Panasonic TH-42PZ85U there is a shift to the RIGHT with the 0620 firmware, but there is a LARGER shift to the LEFT with the 0722 firmware when I watch the same PAL region-free widescreen DVD: "Marketa Lazarová" (Second Run DVD 017).

When I view the same DVD on the same TV using my DV-983H I do not see the shift on the left or the right. I'm sure Oppo will fix the PAL problems on the BDP-83 in due time, but for now the trusty but discontinued DV-983H is my player of choice for PAL DVDs.

Terry

The PAL shift is always present with properly formatted DVD viewed on a display in 1:1 pixel mapped mode (fw 0620). Hence why it shows on PAL alignment patterns. Not all DVD's are formatted the same meaning it's possible to see odd borders that may be title specific but that's different to this issue. Also if the display applies overscan it will mask this issue and usually titles with odd borders.

Oppo have confimed the PAL issue and it isn't due certain combination of product it's an issue with the active image position when using a PAL at a resolution output that uses the ABT. Source direct mode doesn't exhibit the same shift.

Note that you can purchase an extended warranty directly from Oppo even if you purchased the unit through Amazon. I agree that you should avoid Amazon's warranty services like a plague.

I would love to see how many DVDs & Blu-rays that Oppo has acquired for testing purposes.
It must look like a library in their testing room.

At the beginning of Fast and Furious, they give a warning that "all players need to be updated with new firmware frequently and all discs may not play correctly" (I paraphrase). I think we've known this for awhile, but it's the first instance I've seen of a warning to folks to keep checking for new firmware. Probably should be a standard warning right after the FBI one. The disc is a Universal release.

Virtually all of them seem to have that insert in the package that says this. I'd rather they leave it there than add more crap I'm forced to watch before I can see my movie.

What's strange is that some players which cannot be easily updated firmware-wise, because they do not have an ethernet port, don't seem to have many issues. I bought my ex a cheapie Sylvania BD player for Christmas and it has played every disc she has rented or bought and it has never had any firmware updates. On the other hand, the "better" players, such as the Oppo 83 and Panasonics, etc. seem to need some kind of update every time a new disc comes out. Why is that?

I know this is a little off topic. Is there somewhere we can complain collectively to the issuers of BD discs that we would like them to standardize the the rules they use in authoring the discs so continued FW upgrades are not necessary? I'm glad I bought a player from a company that is committed to updating my player but it adds to the price OPPO had to budget for development to keep up. This adds to the price we had to pay.

Sorry, I wasn't thinking too clearly at that time - of course Audyssey works on PCM input too. Like I said, the difference between PCM and bitstream was minute.

As a face-saving backup mental justification, I have up 'til now assumed that feeding bitstream to the receiver might involve fewer processing steps. It seems logical that bitstream to decoder to bass mgmt to Audyssey equalization are done within one or a few chips on the receiver, so that method might involve fewer manipulations.

Whatever, it sounds damn good.

This is a standard Universal warning on all discs. Should occur right before the main feature starts.

Well good luck with that.

If they collectively didn't have the brains to do that when they set the blu-ray standards I doubt they have become any smarter since.

Sorry, just the pessimist in me rearing it's head. Or is it the realist?

I just finished my first firmware update and am shocked at how easy and fast it was when compared to the Sony and Samsung machines I used to own. Instead of having to burn an image to a CDROM and keep my fingers crossed while the player went thru its 15-minute update procedure, I merely copied the file to a thumb drive, and stuck it in the Oppo. In <2-minutes the machine had updated itself.

Thank you, Oppo!

Thank you, Oppo!

I felt the same exact way when I updated the firmware a few weeks back, I turned on the machine and It said an update was aviable. It was a breeze.
