    I own a Sony BDP-CX960 400 Disc Blu-Ray Player. It has been a great player since about 2010 for me and my family. Over the past year a few discs have become "un-readable" by the player. Meaning that I would have to remove them and re-install them and they would magically become readable and play normally. This occurred about 8 times over the life of the device.

    Last week I turned the player back on after a month or so shutdown and it began acting strangely. It did come on via the remote but would not go to the menu (in fact it would not do anything based on the remote command or by touching buttons on the face of the unit). It tried to play the disc that it last played, but eventually called it "un-readable" (or words to that affect). I couldn't get it to do anything and finally thought I should un-plug / re-plug after 30 seconds. After I re-plugged nothing happened no power-up, NOTHING!.

    I took off the cover, isolated the power-in circuit board and checked the fuse - no problem. Then I checked the buttons on the front face - no issues there. Put it back together and found the service data sheet on-line which said to push [STOP], [DISC EJECT] & [OPEN/CLOSE] while unplugged, then plug in with the expectation of seeing the device switch to SERVICE MODE. however, NOTHING AGAIN.

    The player is discontinued in manufacturing and Sony has ceased to support it. I have found that there are few parts out there on-line and I am not really an electronic wizard (as I am sure several of you have already determined). My question is this? Is there anyone out there that has experience with this player and is the problem that I related terminal?
