Blu ray player problem
« on: December 06, 2012, 04:48:47 PM »
I have a Samsung blu ray player that we got a year or so ago. Today, for some reason, it has started turning itself off and on. I finally just unplugged it.

Anyone have any idea why it would be doing this? Or how to stop it?

Just buy a new one.

Yup.  Sounds fried to me.

Just spit balling here.

Might have a switching power supply that is malfunctioning.

Rich is right, just replace it. It would probably cost more in total to take it in, troubleshoot it and then make the fix.

Not worth it unless it is under warranty.
