Panasonic DMP-BD80

Well, it was pretty good while it lasted. Unfortunately it lived less than 18 months. Been looking for a replacement drive to get this unit up and running again. Only problems is the price. Anyone have a line on a Panasonic VXY2070 replacement drive that costs less than a new Blu-ray player?

I have found several places with OEM replacements unfortunately none for less than $118.00 and I'm not willing to spend that much to repair this unit.

Re: Panasonic DMP-BD80

Guys, my BD80 started to show some sound level flactuation and pixelization. Are these signs of near death...How can I check that the player is nearling its end??
Thanks for the help.

Is the unit well ventilated? How often is this happening?




Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

Well ventilated...started in the last two weeks. Always around the 90 min mark. I tried different DVDs and Blue-Ray discs...Until the 90 min everything seems to be OK. You can imagine mine (and my wife) frustration just about the movie to finish, all the troubles start...May be is really time for replacement?

Re: Panasonic DMP-BD80

My guess is that something is getting hot. Do you hear more servo activity than before if you listen closely? A laser getting weak could be the issue as well, but the volume fluctuations along with video sounds like something else. I would pop the top and look for anything obvious like thermal damage or puffy caps. Then run it through a movie and see if it happens with the top off.
