    I'm trying to get a multiregion Sony DVP CX860D DVD player but everywhere are waiting for more stock from Sony. The people at DVD magic said they had heard a romour that there was a problem with the players door or loading tray, and Sony were fixing this before releasing any more stock.

    Has anyone else heard this romour, or had any problems with their CX860D?

    Most places are hoping to get more stock in at the end of the month, but they said that last month!

    Any info would be great. I have emailed Sony but had no reply!

    <br />Cheers,<br />Glenn.

    I've had an 860 for 6 months+ and no problems whatsoever other than the awful UI.

    Many thanks for the info.<br />I've killed my existing order and ordered a multiregion player form Paul Taylor (many thanks Jimmy!) for £509 including next day delivery. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

    Time to add a 'slot number' field to my DVD database so I can just type in the number of the DVD I want to play insted of having to use the crap GUI.

    Thanks again<br />Glenn.

    Hi JamesOD,<br /> when my 860D arrived it wouldn't play any disk's and tried to load 2 DVD's at once. When I sent it back they found a loose wire (it is a moded player. Guess they missed re-connecting it!). Anyway my player is due back today so I'll let you know if it's OK.

    It does sound like a dodgy player as I've not seen anyone else report having these problems I would be tempted to send it back.

    Sorry I can't help more.

    Glenn Keen.

    Got my CX860D back today. Worked fine at first then started to play up. It loads a disk, thinks about it then displays the error code 'C 32 00' on the front panel before putting the player on standby.<br /> The only way to get the disk out is to tilt the player on its front or back!!

    So it's going back! The people at Paul Taylor's want to see if the can replicate the error. If they can they are going to test another player to make sure they haven't been sent a faulty batch.

    Looks like I'm going to be without a DVD player for a few days! <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> A least it's going to be a 'new' one!

    <br />Glenn.

    Glenn this is the same problem I had I have sent the machine back to Link electronics (just down the road from multiregion magic) and they are going to send a brand new machine tommorow it must be a bad batch or just a real wierd coincidence.

    We all seem to be buying these machines from the same companies so the question should be are these changers awful or are the stores in question just rotating the stock to new users hoping that one of us will just accept it as being a quirk of the machine (this is not a accusation just a question)my machine did not look new (unlike my 850 purchased from the same company).

    <br />Pls. insert conspiracy theory here. <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

    Have had a machine from multiregionmagic for about six months now and it has performed faultlessly ... yes the GUI is gash but I have a "Select Disc" button on my Pronto which wanders down through the menus for you, all you then do is tap the disc number on the keypad and hit "Confirm" and it comes back out and plays.

    I keep a spreadsheet printed out with the 200 odd discs that are in the player listed.

    My friend has one but his kids bust the door by swinging on it!

    I've just been on the phone to Paul Taylor's and this is what I've found out.

    They are aware of the problem and have spoken to the people at Link electronics. They have had a couple of player with this problem (can't think who some of them are owned by <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> ).

    Both places say that they have never had any problems with these players before. Paul Taylor's say that they got their stock at a different time from Link but are going to compare serial numbers to see if they are from the same production run. Apparently Sony finally have some players back in stock and therefore these will be being shipped out to retailors now. I wonder if the LONG delay was due to the problem with the last batch? <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> <br />Hopefully if the last batch turns out to be faulty these 'new' players may be OK. Of course the new batch could have the same falut as the last!

    The only good thing is that the Paul Taylor's have found out that the 'c 32 00' error code is related the the DVD drive mechanism. This sound right as it's definately a loading/unloading problem. Their going to speak to a tech at Sony this afternoon to find out more.

    Anyway I hope you all get sorted out. From the breif time it was working it looked like a great DVD player.

    I think I've tracked the problem down to the player having trouble ejecting a DVD. <br />When I got my player back and it appeared to be working I loaded all my DVD's in and pressed the 'Load 1\all' button. The player went about loading each DVD in turn. After about 88 of my 90 DVD's it displayed the fault. It loaded the disk in but couldn't eject it!

    I finally got an email nack from Sony saying that there are no knowed faults with the CX860 (they don't think the crap GUI is a fault!! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> )

    So it looks like a faulty batch or just pure chance that we all got a bad player.

    My player is No. 800314, I think, got it written down at home just to make sure that if they say they have swapped it for another one I'll know.

    Hope you all get your players sorted.
