All, After a little over a year of faithful service, my Panasonic RV31 has died on me. I managed to open it up and retrieve my DVD, luckily, but I'm not quite sure what to do from here. It's out of warranty, of course. Here's the problem: it began making a nasty noise tonight, then I tried to eject the disc but it wouldn't open. Now, it won't do anything other than make this noise: http://users.adelphia.net/~bhaney/brokenRV31.mp3 (I apologize for the bad quality, it was done with my laptop's built-in mic) I can see the little white gear spinning under the tray, and the whole tray mechanism is vibrating pretty badly. I found the parts list for this by going to http://www.pasc.panasonic.com/epartr/ and entering "DVDRV31" in the "search by model" field. Anyone care to guess what's wrong and if it could be replaced pretty easily? If not, should I bother taking it in, knowing that it cost me around $130 new? Maybe I should just buy a cheapie for now until I eventually buy a progressive scan one (after making the move to HDTV in a couple years)? Thoughts, help, advice appreciated. Thanks, -Brett.
