Holy moly.... I just realized.

I've been reading HTF & posting (every once and awhile) for 10 fre#k'n
years!!

How about that! That means my Sony 7000 is 10.5 years old. Time for
a new one maybe.

Mr. Howard, is this thread not in danger of ending now that you have posted it?

Time flies when your having fun. Glad to see i am not the only one with a 10 year old DVD player! Cept mine is the 7700, and its just about 9 years. They dont build em like that anymore.

Does your S7000 have the *undocumented* switches inside? If so, don't get rid of it yet! Posted Image

Not to change the topic, but there are people that have dvd players from 97 that still work ? WOW!!!Anyway, the longest I ever had one is one I bought in 2003 that still works pretty good.All others bought before have bit the dust, my first ever player was bought in 98 , an rca player that died in 2002 ,r.i.p. lol !

I have a second generation Toshiba 2107 that I got in '97 that was just replaced because it could not read some of the newer Disney discs that we bought for my neice, otherwise it still played everything else great.

Amazing, I guess its all in the luck of the draw, as to how long a player will last.

Me too, but I "suplemented" it instead of replacing it. I still prefer to use it, too, because of its spendid user interface design.

Yes, now it is killed, b/c I have replied to my original post.


Ps... Sony 7000, switches? You mean those switches that I can see
inside on the breadboard panels that *if* switched make the player
an all region dvd player? --- I don't know what you are talking about. Posted Image

It's finally my turn.  10 years this month!


Happy anniversary to me!  Posted Image


I had my choice of a couple different old "10 Year" threads to choose from...but there were a few things about this one that I especially liked!  Posted Image
