About 6 months ago my Sony DVP-S3000 stopped working. I turned it on to eject a disc, and the unit powered up...made a clicking noise from the tray-area, and then powered off. I unpluggd the unit, took the case off and manually removed the disc. I did some questioning around town to find out prices for fixing the unit, and I was quoted $100-200 (ballpark). They never knew what was wrong with it... just gave me an idea. Warranty on the machine would be 90 days from service. I deceided to get a new unit (DVD-A and progressive scan). I have the next 8 days off for holidays, and I got the urge to open the old sucker up and see if there is anything that I can do. It still makes a clicking sound then powers off. After taking the unit completely apart, I put it back together again...and still the same thing. Does anyone here have any experience with what is wrong? I would consider ordering a part and replacing it myself (if the part was a resonable price). I would love to get this unit back for another room...and to satisfy my craving to fix it. Thanks all.
