I’ve got an inop S9000 I’d like to repair to (at least) use as an SACD transport. Sony’s tech repair company says it’s too old for them to work on (they don’t like products more than 10 years old); a vintage repair company (Pacific Stereo) says it’s too new. Anybody know who’s doing repairs and/or mods on these players? Thing is build like a tank so I’m not ready to give up on it.
Note: title should state DVP S9000 ES but some idiot autocorrect "fixed" it!
I asked the same question recently and was advised to send mine to the landfill. My 9000 ES failed to power up after sitting idle for a few years. Any ideas what might have failed? And are there any parts that can be salvaged before it goes into the bin?
