Well I've just received an email saying that the problem is likely to be the disc, and all the disc issues experienced are due to the manufacturing process & can only be fixed with a firmware update. In fact they are "99% it's not the disc reader"!! 

Well, I politely disagreed, and pointed out that if it is the disc, why does it play fine in other players? And if I have to rely on a firmware update every time I buy a new disc, how long until my player is nothing but a paperweight? 

I then pointed out that the only fix, both here and overseas, has been to replace the optical reader. I really want to punch someone right now. 

can  I ask where is your retailer in all this ? or have they washed hands off ? ultimately if taking to ACCC it will have to be the  retailer you take to task and thats who have contract of sale with and responsible for after sales :)

I sent another email to Interdyn saying their previous two fixes still hadn't solved the problem and they haven't even replied. They are hopeless.

I’ve never liked the optical drive on the oppo 105.  The Sony range in its era did a better job at reading discs, much better job!  To hear that the oppo decided to go there own way on the optical drive in the 203/205  is what made me delayed my decision in getting one, and as soon as @betty boop returned his 203 my suspicions was confirmed.  The Firmware was enough to piss anyone off, as I constantly felt like a guinea pig,  with the final FW almost 16mths ago.   

Im totally surprised that they didn’t replaced the optical drive,   I would be forwarding them a video link of read errors on the player and how it work flawlessly on an opposition player with the same disc, or forward the disc and the player at there cost to examine!  Then if they still blaming that it’s disc manufacturing, give them notice on the time frame for a 100% resolution  or a refund and that you will be referring this to Consumer Affairs and case will be lodge.  

They have gone down this road knowing very well that there are issues with the optical unit and there technical notices has possible instructed them to either replaced that optical drive and if that is not possible replaced the pcb, but unless you open the player up and indiscriminately marked every component, how do you know they replaced the pcb,  afterall you are still having the issue!  Another possibilty is that they replaced the pcb becuase they are out of optical drives and there are no more being manufacturered!  Just saying!

I've dealt directly with Interdyn the whole time, as I've been sending files for discs that won't play for months now. The retailer doesn't even know at this stage.

If it’s still under warranty, get the retailer involved,   Take both your oppo and the disc that it’s failing to read and show them what’s happening,  even take the oppositions player you have that the same disc work flawlessly.

Well my suggestion you better get them involved if your next step to take this to accc. It’s always worth dealing through retailer as one I use told me flat out after 2 problems with another brand player that if happened again they have 3 strikes out policy ie have choice if money back or swap fir something else :)

 

a good retailer will also go in bat for you. Do you don’t have to deal with agents who don’t know A from elbow ... which is not your problem :)

I’d want a full refund, or something I know works.......  no 3 strikes for me,  it’s fixed the 1st time round or full refund.   I don’t need to persevere with junk,  Im bold enough as it is, no more hair left to rip out!  LOL!

Well my email was quite strongly worded, and I said I want the disc reader replaced, end of story. So if they refuse, I'll get the retailer involved.

Sorry to hear of anyone having operational issues with the players.

As an FYI, I've seen people asking $5k USD for these nowadays. Be worth holding onto or capitalise on your original buy if anyone's looking to switch players. Screenshot_20190502-121902.jpeg

some of those prices are just wishful thinking who in right mind is going to pay $8k ? no one ... hopefully you'd think

 

no plans selling one ...not even for 4-$5k because what would you replace it with for a universal ?  ... only thing remotely close is the top line pioneer and thats $4k there abouts ? so whats the point ?  and you'd need to get the pio modded which all up  isnt cheap anyways ?

I’ve had no problem with my Oppo 205 I purchased new just over 12 months ago, I agree not much out there to replace it with that is equivalent, I could downgrade to the Panasonic 9000, but what’s the point.

 

Touch wood, I hope I get the same reliable service out of the Oppo 205 that I got from my Oppo 95 (had it over 6 years) and on sold it for $450.

      USB Input x 3 - For media playback
      Extra Details below and from the Loewe website: https://ww2.loewe.tv/au/bild/loewe-reference
       
      Loewe is acknowledged as a specialist manufacturer and this is their top television model, the Reference, in a 55” size model. It is hand made in Germany with features that are not found on standard sets.
       
      Effortless Perfection.
      The new Loewe Reference sets exceptionally high standards. An achievement made possible by a perfectly synchronised performance: A crystal-clear Ultra-HD picture combines with outstanding quality sound from Loewe's unique integrated soundbar. A timeless modernist design meets ultimate convenience, thanks to the integrated hard disk recorder and Bluetooth audio streaming.
       
      Ultra High Definition ... for the best picture.
      The UHD display is combined with Loewe's unique glass high contrast filter panel, delivering even richer colours and deeper blacks - for a truly special picture. For TV broadcast signals that do not yet meet the UHD standard Loewe's up-scaling algorithm converts from the currently available Full HD 1,920 x 1,080 pixels in a seamless process ensuring visibly enhanced details and the clarity of Ultra HD 3,840 x 2,160 pixels.
       
      Loewe 3D Active Shutter ... for even more depth.
      From outer space to jungles or oceans … Sometimes, you want to truly immerse yourself in the action unfolding on your screen. Loewe's 3D Active Shutter technology brings images alive with vibrant detail - and not just for 3D content. Algorithms work invisibly behind the scenes - calculating which picture content should appear at the front and back - to transform even 2D content into an impressive three-dimensional home cinema experience.
       
      High-resolution art ... with the LUMAS app.
      The new LUMAS Gallery app takes art into the digital dimension - and opens up new horizons. It allows you to enjoy selected works of art by internationally renowned artists - such as the Cuba series by the Stuttgart-based photographer Werner Pawlok - in high-resolution Ultra HD quality on your television screen. The LUMAS TV app is available on the new Loewe Reference TV home screen, so you can start selecting pictures straight away - using the Loewe remote control. Browse photographs, graphics, illustrations, digital art or paintings. When you find a picture that appeals, you can display it as a fixed image (for a maximum of 24 hours) or enjoy as part of a slide show.
       
      Quality Sound
      The Loewe Reference has a sound quality to rival even high-end hi-fi and home cinema systems: tangible bass, vivid middle, precise highs and an exceptionally wide dynamic range – the traditional hallmarks of Loewe Sound. The Loewe Reference sets particularly high standards. An integrated soundbar with eight speakers generates crystal-clear sound with a rich 120 watts of music output. In combination with the specially designed bass reflex box and integrated 5.1 audio decoder with Dolby Digital and DTS, the result is an impressive home cinema … and a perfect home concert hall. The Loewe Reference's cinema surround mode conveys amazingly authentic surround sound. At the touch of a button, it also allows you to switch between film and music mode. Special algorithms calculate the optimal overall sound setup for each situation: as powerful as possible while retaining sensitivity – ideal for cinema buffs and music fans.
       
      Loewe Mobile Recording ... any time, any place.
      You're stuck in traffic or can't get away from a meeting...you won't make it home in time for your favorite programme. You're out with friends...and you suddenly realise your weekly drama is about to start. The Loewe Reference takes the stress out of situations such as these. Loewe Mobile recording allows you to easily record programmes on the integrated Loewe DR+ 1 TB hard disk, even if you don't happen to be at home. Leaving you free to enjoy your favorite programmes at a more convenient time! All you need is a smartphone and an Internet connection. Simply open the new free Loewe Smart Assist app, select the program from the programme guide and press 'record'... Your Loewe TV will then take care of the rest. When you get back home, you can even watch your recorded programmes on your patio, or tucked up in bed using a tablet computer.

      Selling my Sony VPL-VW520ES Native 4K Projector
      https://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=1489613893
      Happy to sell privately. 
    • By oztheatre
      Item: The all new native 4K Sony VPL-VW270ES 4K Cinema Projector (new 2019 model with all new lens) and Majestic Screen package is now available.
      Genuine Australian stock! This model is available in black or white.
      Groundbreaking price for native 4K cinema projection!
      RRP at $10,317 based on package with 100 inch Majestic Screen at full RRP.
      With 2 RF 3D Glasses and premium Majestic Evo4K Screen and top of the line Peerless geared projector mount! 
      Priced From: $8289 inc GST and delivery Australia wide.
      Payment Method: Pickup - Direct deposit, cards 1%.

      Extra Info: This model doesn't have the lens memory feature that the 570ES has, however it has motorised zoom, shift and focus so you could use a 235 screen, it would just take a little longer to switch between formats when required.. perhaps 30-40 seconds using the remote. Otherwise a 16:9 format screen would mean no changing sizes or messing around with the remote.
