    Bought this last night, did a test run and was impressed. My girlfriend was watching it today, and I ejected the movie and put something else in, nothing. It plays audio, but video isn't there (just the blue screen from my Mits. WS-55807). The display isn't working on the player (the screen) either. What gives? Is there some kind of manual reboot I can do or do I need to take it back.
    Need help and/or advice asap!

    I was shocked when I saw this post, because I just exchanged the same exact player for the same reason today!
    I hooked it up yesterday and it was fine for about 10 minutes, and then POOF! Nothing but the blue screen on my RPTV (also a Mitsubishi widescreen).
    I fiddled around a bit and narrowed it down to the fact that the component output on the player wasn't working correctly. I took it back to the store today and told them EXACTLY what was wrong. After they checked it out for a few minutes they said "The component output doesn't work" (DUH!!!!)
    I had a new player within five minutes and everything has been working great so far today. However, seeing this post makes me worry that this might very well be a common problem with the DVP-NS700P. If that's the case, for shame Sony....
    Matt, my suggestion would be to do what I did. Make sure it's a problem with the component outputs on the player by testing the player with both composite and S-Video connections. They should both work. Also, try a few different component cables to make sure it's not a cable problem (unlikely). I also even checked the component out on my old interlaced player with the same TV and that worked just fine. After running those simple tests the component output will more than likely still not work on the DVP-NS700P. If so, take that puppy back!!!
    I'll be very interested to hear how everything turns out.

    I did the same thing you did. I boxed it up and took it back to Circuit City. So far, the player works fine and I'm happy with it. I have to wonder what might be going on though. I didn't think to try the S-Video connections and I just got brand new BetterCables, so I doubt that's the issue. It does make me worry, though, as I've never had a problem with the Sony player. Guess I'd better keep my receipt close.
    Thanks for the response, it was driving me crazy. Thought the girlfriend had fried my new player! Well, at least I'm not alone in my problem, which seems to be fixed now.
    Thanks for the help.
