OPPO 981 Tray Won't Stay Open

My OPPO 981 DVD Player has developed a problem with the Disc Tray. When I press the Open/Close button the tray comes out and immediately closes. I can hold the tray open manually long enough to insert a disc but that should not be the way it works! Any ideas on what went wrong and what it will take to get it fixed would be appreciated.

Call or email Oppo. They can walk you through trouble shooting and if needed they have a flat rate repair service.

Just in case anybody else has this problem - I hit the Eject Button and held the tray all the way out and it stayed out. From that point on the player worked as it should - when I pressed the eject button the tray came out and stayed out until I pressed the eject button again and it closed. Problem solved!


I did call OPPO customer service and their response was send it in for repair ~$50 and they pay the return shipping cost. Not a bad deal but I did not get any suggestions on how to fix the problem.
