So i purchased a Sony 5-disc DVD player from circuit city late august. Come december first it stopped playing DVD's. Well it will play the DVD's maybe 10% of the time and cd's maybe 50% of the time. Other than that it just keeps saying loading on the dvd player. I paid about $185 for it and Circuit city will only take returns for 90 days. So what should I do? I didnt abuse it or anything. Also the component outlets stopped working. So i saw that Sony has the Parts warranty for a year but i would have to pay for labor and shipping. Which sounds expensive. Has anyone sent something to sony before? How expensive is it going to be? or if anyone else has any other recomendations on what i could do pklease let me know. Thanks In Advance

Sony has local service centers. I would call one of them and get the minimum and maximum labor charges. A single disc name brand DVD player can be had for $50, so I would be leery about getting it repaired, but that is without knowing the repair cost.
