Hi, I've only just found this place and need some advice about my Sony DAV S550. I purchased my machine in late August 2002 and some problems have occured. 1 - The left hand channel has stopped working 2 - I have had a problem with subtitles from the start, I thought this was a daft Sony idea to make subtitles more accessable. Having done a search here I understand it's a known issue. 3 - Some discs (all regions) will sometimes not load, all I get is a message saying reading, and nothing else. 4 - Region 1 discs have now stopped working completly. What do you think, return my machine to Paul Taylor in Peterborough and demand a new machine or just accept him mending my machine ? Has anyone else had any of these problems ? Thanks for any advice. Kevin Harrison.
