Guys, I have an extra Sony BDP-CX960 that I need to get some parts for. It seems they are VERY difficult to locate. Anyone know where I can get them?

1. SONY EP-GW 1-879-11 board, one of the connector pins fell off
2. SUMITOMO-M 2896 45pin (i believe) ribbon cable, looks like it is about a foot long. It connects the laser to the board.

Thanks!

Kevin

I tried to play the Dolby Atmos version of the Expendables 3 in my Oppo BD-83 and the audio dropped out. I then switched to the Sony 960 and it played perfectly. Well I now know the 960 will play Dolby Atmos drop out free.

BDP-CX960 repair

I want to thank everyone in the forum that helped to outline how to fix a player with an invalid disc error. My CX960 started giving me this error around Thanksgiving, and I was in a panic since I knew they were no longer selling these players. Long story short, I purchased the laser that is linked in this thread and replaced the laser in my player. It took several cracks at putting it back together to get it right. My player is working like new now. It loaded over 300 discs without errors.

tivodoctor,

The above is very encouraging - Thank You for posting this!
Although my CX960 is still trouble-free, I suspect I am on borrowed time.
Could you post here (or PM to me) the source where you obtained the laser?

Thanks in Advance!

BDP-CX960 laser

The link for the laser is listed above in post #3331 . It is:


http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-PCS-OPTICA...-/360939314074


I am thinking of buying another to use as a back up for my CX960's. Hopefully this helps if you need it in the future.

I have a Sony BDP-CX960. The internet connection seems to have gone bad. The ethernet cable is working and the connection is good - I have connected my laptops and other devices to the cable. Is the Lan port on the changer replaceable? Are parts even available or do I need to send this to an authorized Sony repair facility?

Thank you for you help!

On my BDP-CX960, in Setup and Video Output selection, I cannot select HDMI nor get an HDMI output. The HDMI selection is greyed out. HDMI is connected to my preamp processor, and I have also tried to connect it up directly to my TV but to no avail. Previous to this, I had been fooling and experimenting with various HDMI to component boxes for my old 65" Sony XBR rear projection TV and (wrong) AWG 28 cables, getting mixed results. Now, I am at a loss as to what to do. Any suggestions?

Wanted to let those still interested in the Sony CX7000ES know that I am selling six (6) changers and have just now posted a listing in the Classified/Video Source Items forum.

Would prefer to give priority on these changers to contributors to this thread, as the information shared here has enhanced my use and enjoyment of this product. My thanks and best regards...

Sending my BDP-CX960 in for service

Greetings,

The "invalid disc" issue surfaced on my unit some time ago but since I don't use it as my primary player I have put off having it serviced. I figured it's time as I want to have it repaired while the parts are still available.

Going though Son't Support site, it now indicates that service is provided by United Radio. I have used them before for Onkyo warranty work and they are excellent. Thye quoted me $115 plus parts/shipping.

That's fine by mean. I really like the convenience of the jukebox and seeing as they are no longer available for purchase it's easily worth the cost.

Regards,

Ralph C. Potts
