I just did a firmware update but that had no effect. I tired a little compressed air, but also, no effect.
This is the FOURTH Yamaha Blu-ray player I've had and the FOURTH to have issues: first a BD-S2900BL that stopped working, then my first BD-a1010 (b-stock from Yamaha) that had network and playback issues out of the box, then a replacement b-stock with the same issues as the first, and now this one (a-stock direct from Yamaha).
I have a call into their tech support, but my guess is they're going to tell me I'm out of warranty and I can pay $100 to have it swapped out for another b-stock unit, but given my experience, that last thing I want is another b-stock unit - especially if I have to pay $100 for it.
If they offer me my choice of a BD-a1010 or a BD-a1020, which should I chose? I haven't looked in a while, but I vaguely remember reading bad things about the 1020 here in the forums...
Is there anyone out there that has any suggestions of how I might be able to fix the issue I'm having? I thought a factory reset might help, but given that updating the firmware didn't help, I doubt a reset would, if there is one.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Oh - one more thing - if I can't get it working, any recommendations on what I should buy? All of the consumer level players (Samsung, Sony, LG look like plastic CRAP compared to my Yahama (although they probably work).
