Re: Expect Two Winners in the HD Disc Format War
[QUOTE=CliffH;4193]When DVD came out I purchased a combo player from Pioneer that played both DVD and laser disc. It cost aprox. $1,200.00 US when I purchased it in the 90's. That was a hefty price at the time and I thought I was playing it safe by bying from a quality manufacturer. However the unit broke down after aprox. a year and I could not find anyone to fix the unit. All the repair shops declined, stating that it was a hybrid unit that they did not know how to fix. I then went to Pioneer and asked them to service it and they declined. It was just out of warranty so I was out of luck.[QUOTE]
I have the same unit ... and it still works. I did have one small problem with it. When I did not play CD's on it for awhile it would no longer play them properly ... it would only play the first few songs then stop. I took a suggestion from a friend ... I exercised it, playing a CD over and over until the problem went away.
