If I turn it off and on at this point it will reboot in a few seconds. Wait for a while and it is back in the four minute to boot state. The behavior is the same when I disconnect everything except power (ie ethernet and the TV). I've already had this unit repaired once by OPPO, where I think they replaced the power supply. If I had to make a wild guess I would blame power again - it now has to warm up to work properly - but that is sheer guesswork. Anybody have any things I can try?
Sorry about the multiple post - I accidentally first posted this in the OPPO BDP-103 thread and haven't figured how to delete it.
The only other thing you can try -- short of another repair -- is a complete Reset of the player.
1) Remove any disc in the tray and turn off the player. Unplug everything except power and HDMI to your TV. If you are using the Wifi dongle, that too should be unplugged.
2) Power up, Erase Persistent Storage, and then Reset Factory Defaults.
3) Power off the player and then unplug the HDMI connection and wall power connection.
4) While still unplugged from power, Press and Hold the Power button on the Front Panel for a few seconds. This is to drain any residual power in the low level hardware, forcing a complete reboot of that hardware.
5) Connect just wall power (no HDMI or anything else) and power up again. If the problem appears fixed (boot up time is quick again as determined by Front Panel messages), power off the unit and let it sit for long enough to cool off and then retry that same power up (still only power cord connected). If the problem STILL appears to be fixed, start by just reconnecting HDMI and see if the power up is still normal. Then connect anything else -- one at a time -- to see if the problem returns. If so, the last item you connected is likely the culprit. Typical culprits would be a connected USB device, or a networking connection that's flooding the player with bogus requests.
If the complete reset DOESN'T fix the problem (with everything disconnected), the player likely needs service again. Depending on when you had the power module replaced, OPPO may be able to treat this as a Warranty repair.
ETA NOTE: Boot up time for the player will be faster if you have Quick Start set. But if the player is disconnected from wall power (unplugged or after a power failure), the first boot up after restoring power will be the normal, longer, complete boot up instead of Quick Start.
