Anyone had this before? Black goo on DVD player
Hello! I was just cleaning out my home theater cabinet and noticed a very sticky black goo coming out of the top of my Sony DVD player. It is very hard to get the goo off my hands. It's literally like motor oil. There are no vents on the top... so it looks like it's coming from the back edge maybe?
Is it time to get a new DVD player? The DVD player works fine. Is there anything to worry about safety-wise?
I have seen my audio cables develop a sticky residue over time, but never a black goo.
It does tend to get very hot in the cabinet when I have the system running.
Any advice or info would be greatly appreciated.
