While I have disassembled 3 gun crt's, danged if I can get into the guts.
Chinese finger torture trick?
Undid the screws after finding a SM on line, 5... it then shows lifting the top right off. Side panels removed via plastic pressure clips but no joy on top or front panel. Glad a disk is not stuck in there as the top/front must go to get to the disk release inside.
Soooo, tried the spit on the disk center hub, run for a few, then wipe repeat. Strange thing is that the failure seems less prominent, but with a few aged dvd's, it is still a problem.
Since I have an older s-550 that works and the 780 is good with all bd's.... I will follow up with a thorough cleaning once I learn the Pandora box trick from on of you guys.
In the meantime.... Amazon is replacing with a new unit from another maker that allows for CC from Amazon Prime, something that the 780 would not handle anyway.
