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.

Okay...I think I may have answered my own question. Upon further inspection and cleaning... I think it's just the paint from the DVD player that has melted from the heat of the cabinet. I took a paper towel and wiped it. Lo and behold... the paint is removing.


If someone in the future runs into this... hope this helps!

That seems odd ... unless the cabinet gets quite warm, and heat could be hard on the electronics.

And you are sure the goo isn't coming down onto the DVD player from above?

My very humble setup:
Man Cave:Vizio E500i-A1 "Smart TV" (50-in 1080p 120Hz LED/LCD, has Netflix app.), Sony BDP-S3100 Blu-ray player, Roku N1000 (original model), PC (Windows 7), Comcast Internet (120Mbps/12Mbps).
Bedroom:LG 32LV3400-UA TV (32-in 768p 60Hz LED/LCD), HD DVR (Motorola RNG200N), Xfinity Comcast cable (Digital Preferred Plus), DVD/VHS player.
