Well my S370 finally stopped working properly the other day...would play some discs perfectly, others it would not even make it to the main menu and would keep turning off the player, the 'Wait' sign would show on the display then it would turn itself off, sometimes even on again...and other odd behavior...
I was hoping it was because I had not updated the player with the latest firmware so I did that- but still no luck.
I have owned it about 7 years I think and it's rarely been used. I had it shipped from the US to Ireland to be able to play back Region 'A' US discs and had it connected to a step down transformer (220V-240V down to US 120V-140V). I did accidentally forget to plug it into the transformer once and didn't realize for a couple of minutes until I saw some smoke coming out of the back of the player lols. Amazingly it continued to work flawlessly until this week.
This is the first (and hopefully last) piece of home theater electronics which has ever broken on me- and I have owned a lot of gear over the years.
Have a replacement tiny Sony BDP-S3700 on the way from Amz US should have it tomorrow fingers crossed.
Just dropped off the S370 at a local electronics store which takes stuff for recycling- have to say I'm a huge Sony fanboy and was sad to say goodbye to it!
(One think I am looking forward to with the new player is the ease of having built in Wifi for firmware updates)
