After over a year of flawless operation, I am starting to see some issues with my 203. I purchased it new from Oppo last year shortly after the announcement that they were shutting down.
Long story short, the player has frozen up twice now in two days. The first time, I was simply attempting to eject a stopped 4K disc. The eject button was dead, nor could I eject from the remote. Th power button was also inoperative and I ended up pulling the power cord. All was well after that.
Today, I inserted a BluRay, it appeared to load properly, but the player would not respond to any commands.....again...dead stick. Pulled the power cord, and all was well.
I am running the latest released firmware and have never had a problem in the over 1 year of ownership. Nothing has changed in my rig, not that I would expect anything I could have done might cause such behavior.
Next I will try a full reset to factory defaults, but to hedge my bets, I reached out to Oppo to see about sending it in. I expect that support will not disappear anytime soon, but intermittent problems are a PITA, and I would rather send it in now rather than later, just in case.
Edit: Less than 5 minutes after I sent my Oppo my service request, I got an email response asking for some additional information. I will miss this guys when they are gone. Even on the way out, they still provide the best service in the AV industry.
