It's ok when the unit is turned off. That's the safe way to do repair; unplugging the unit.

BD35 near death, need new player

My BD35 is nearly 8 years old. It has stopped playing most blurays, and those it does it freezes up after about 30 minutes. I am ready to get a new player. it is hooked up via HDMI to a pioneer Kuro 60" plasma screen, using only the attached factory speakers. so I don't need fancy sound capabilities. And i have a network jack by the TV, so I don't need wireless, though I assume most current players include that. It would be nice to have a player that can do apps for youtube or hulu, but my main requirement is a good HDMI output for a 60"plasma. Do I go with a modern panasonic such as the BD93 (I don't need 3D), or is something else better at this point? When I bought this 8 years ago, it seemed like this model or an Oppo were the best, but I haven't stayed up to date on things.

IF it can pass a TrueHD bitstream, then it should be able to pass Atmos.

If you only use the hdmi outs, and only play blu rays, it shouldn't matter much what player you use as far as picture/audio quality.

Now, if you play dvd's and scale that up to 1080p displays, etc., or play CD's and use the RCA analog outs, or want separate surround rca outs (bypassing the hdmi/receiver decoder), that's when you start to look at a player like the oppo.

Essentially, the differences are in the quality of the scaler (that scales video images up/down....like 480i dvd up to 1080p displays), and the DA (digital to analog) converters--like playing a CD in an Oppo using the stereo RCA outs.

Right on! Deepwater Horizon played back with its full Atmos glory without any hiccups.

Is there any way to reset the HDMI on BD55K?

I am having a strange issue with my player that started 2 days ago. When I connect it to my Optoma HD20 projector via the HDMI the colors are all muddled up (purplish tinge like when you have a bad HDMI connection or cable). When the same player is connected to a monitor /tv the image is perfect. Whats even more strange is that when I connect the player to two of the above display devices simultaneously (TV & projector together via my AVR using HDMI) the picture is perfect on both devices including the projector. The HDMI cable has been tested and works fine. I believe its something to do with the handshake or similar issue between the projector and the BD55K - Does anyone know how to reset the HDMI or the player itself to factory settings?
