Yep, already disabled. Most nearly everything is shut off.

Tinkering with the settings made the picture better.

If anyone is interested in cooling the panel, and doesn't have access to an infrared camera (and boy, are they expensive, even to rent!), you could try what I tried.

Rats. Any reason why that's the case? It seems kind of bizarre.

The headphone section in a 105 doesn't seem to be as good as the HA-1, but I guess I'll have to settle for it.

Can I connect an Oppo 103 to an Oppo HA-1 and play SACDs? Blu-ray audio? DVD-Audio? Blu-ray concert films (audio track only, obviously)?

Some questions:

1) Can you post a photo of the back after the fans are attached?

2) What are you using to record the thermographs?

Panasonic TC-P65ZT60
MK32940782
October, 2013
A14934

Has fan noise.

From the manufacturing date, would it already have the foam fix? If so, was anything else found that helped?
