Nothing is built to last forever in this day and age..All players need cleaning with a disc inserted or the laser may have just passed it's use by date. It only takes one finger mark to stop a disc from playing. My $98 all region/zone player recently died after 5 years of use.It still only cost me $98 to buy a new bluray all zone ,player. Blurays are more fragile than dvds.Tonight I pulled out my R and H set and found that only OKLAHOMA! and CAROUSEL would load on my blu ray player. None of the other discs would play. I have a 6 year old Panasonic blu ray player which recently has had some glitches and is being replaced by a new Sony player this weekend. If I remember correctly, there was a post on HTF indicating some problems with this set. I tried to do a search for this but no luck. Has anyone else had a problem with this? Thanks as always.
