I have read from a few users at avs , whose players were out of warranty, that the oppo guys fixed it for free . Maybe They got a nice tech on the day. they may charge you postage but I wouldn’t hesitate because they still remain the best UHD players ever made.
These guys will fix it for free
if ur bored and enjoy tinkering
just don’t look anywhere near the laser
sometimes just reseating a ribbon cable can work, if not nudge the voltage pot a smidgen
oppo are a top shelf company and are still servicing these UHD players
