After turning it off and unplugging was able to manually open the tray after turning on again. Unplugged it overnight but the problems remain - can't get it to play through any input.
Hoping it's a software issue that can be sorted. Can anyone offer any suggestions please?
This sounds like a power supply problem, which would mean the player needs service. OPPO offers reasonably priced flat rate service for players out of Warranty.
Before going that route there are a few things to try. First replace the batteries in the remote. Be sure to put in the new batteries the right way around.
Next unplug the player and disconnect everything else from it, including the Wifi dongle and any Ethernet connection.
While still unplugged, press and hold the Power button on the Front Panel for a few seconds to discharge any residual power.
Now plug in -- leaving everything else disconnected -- and power up using the Front Panel. Presuming that works, put in a CD and set it playing -- again, using the Front Panel. If that appears to work, Stop and Eject the CD. With the Tray still Open, press and hold the Enter button on the Remote for a few seconds. If the player is sensing the Remote a message should come up in the Front Panel saying which Remote Code (1, 2 or 3) the player is receiving. If you get that, try using the Remote to close the Tray and power cycle the player.
If you can not get the Remote to function this way, even with fresh batteries, then the player will need service.
If you CAN get the Remote to function, put in a CD and start it playing -- still with everything disconnected -- and see if you get audio from the Headphones jack. If not, check that the Volume is turned up in the 105D (buttons at top of Remote) and that you haven't Muted the output of the 105D.
If you can not get the disc to play, or can not get Headphones audio despite these checks, then the player will need service.
If you CAN get the CD playing, then start reconnecting the other things back, one at a time. Start with the HDMI to the Display, so you can see what's going on. It is possible you have a faulty cable or a faulty device at the other end of the cable which is drawing power and screwing up the player. So reconnect one thing at a time looking for the culprit.
