When I heard about the

When I heard about the DVP-S7000 having the region and Macrovision switches, I couldn't resist peeking under the hood of my DVD player. <BR> <BR>Apparently mine came off the assembly line a little later and does not have the switches. <BR> <BR>Does anyone know how to determine the manufacture date b...

I finally found the manufacture

I finally found the manufacture date of September 1997 in very fine print on the back of my DVP-S7000 and I'm told that only those made prior to March 1997 have the little switches and early versions of firmware which permit the easy bypass. <BR> <BR> When I push , the Test Mode Menu is displayed. ...

If there is a simple

If there is a simple DIY fix for a "stuck" front panel on my DVP-S7000, I'd like to hear about it.  I plays great but just looks a little sad in appearance when it's off.  As I've mentioned elsewhere, examining the innards makes me nervous and I don't have any special tools with ...

My first flat screen, the

My first flat screen, the KDL-32LL150 which I bought at Costco (made in Mexico) three years ago, recently and quite literally went on the blink.  The picture has ghosts, jitters, flickers, etc. <br /><br />I called the 1-800-222-SONY support line and, after quite a bit of courteous banter ...

jehill,    Thanks for the

jehill,<br /> <br />   Thanks for the info.  I'll try that.  I was surprised that any SONY product would have a "built-in obsolescence" but I see that it is intrinsic to the technology until they can make it more robust (without costing $10,000).<br /> <br />  ...

It wasn't actually <em>in</em> the dumpster but on the concrete slab next to it.  I had noticed it a few days earlier and there was a light rain in the interim before I decided to get my 2-wheeler hand truck and cart it home.  Originally there had been an even older SONY remote t...
