After nearly a year of flawless use, my beautiful champagne RP-91 suddenly died the other day. Instead of the traditional "WELCOME TO DVD WORLD" on start up, it either freezes on WELCOME or gives me an error code: F894. Either way, it will not respond to button presses and must be unplugged to reset. One other person on Home Theater Spot reports the same problem occuring within a day of mine. Now it needs to be serviced, but I really do not trust the garden variety authorized technician any more than I trust the garden variety mechanic, which is about as far I can throw them. So the question is: Does anyone know a reputable panasonic service technician in the Virginia, Maryland, or DC areas that they can personally vouch for?
