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 which to attempt a repair.  I'm not sure that I'd even trust a local authorized SONY repairman due to its age.

Advantages to the DVP-S7000.

1. Can pass blacker than black.
2. Does not have the chroma upsampling bug.
3. Servicing the disc drive is easier due to better accessibility.


Advantages to the DVP-S7700

1. Supports DTS DVDs.
2. Built on a copper chassis.


Advantages to both over lesser DVD players:

1. Gibraltar anti-resonance material used on the chassis and disc drive tray.

2. Dual power supplies with linear supply for the analog output employing an R-core transformer.

3. Robust disc drive with KHS-180A dual lens optical pickup and brushless spindle motor.

4. Excellent analog outputs.

5. Very responsive on DVD menus and to playback controls.

6. Supports MPEG Video CD.

I bought the 7700 when it came out ($999 - Ouch!).  Why 7700 over 7000?  The DVP-S7000 could not read DTS encoded DVDs.  I believe that the DVP-S7700 was Sony's first DTS enabled unit.


The DVP-S7000 had better video performance.  It could pass blacker-than-black video and it did not have the chroma upsampling bug.
