This error has been driving me insane. When playing an HD DVD, about 45 minutes in, the audio stops and the video goes black. After a minute or so, the error shows on the display. Then, the only way to power down the XA2, is to unplug it. With regular DVDs, this happens in 15 minutes.
I've cleared persistent storage, initialized the unit, downgraded the firmware, updated back to 4.0, and cleaned all of the dust out of the unit. I also tried operating the unit with the cover removed. No dice! The error is not mentioned in the service manual. Internet searches have yielded very little about this error.
I REALLY want to fix this issue. I love my XA2...And since it cost me over a grand, I'm not willing to give up easily. The XA2 is the best player I've ever owned. Up until now, it never so much as glitched mildly.
Please! If anyone has experienced this error, please tell me how you fixed it. If anyone can shed any light on what the issue may be, please let me know. I would even pay to have it repaired, if it was something I could not fix on my own. But, I have serious doubts that Toshiba is still supporting the HD-XA2.
I have a substantial DVD and HD DVD collection. And for those who own one, know that the XA2 is the only way to fly!
Thanks in advance...Will
