I bought a HLD X9 a while back and it has a couple of issues.
1 sometimes the spindle slips on the discs.
2 it can't play all CAV discs, about 27000-28000 frames the video starts acting up.
Also when playing a DTS disc about 30 minutes in to the disc I get audio drop outs.
Issue 1 can be fixed with a rubber cushion/plasti dip. Issue 2 might be a weak laser, a scope might be needed.

Now the third issue:

Saturday night I played a clv disc. When I pushed stop I sort of felt that it took a bit of time to slow down.
I ejected the tray but didn't get up directly to remove the disc. Just left it hanging there for a minute or two. All of the sudden the display of the player started blinking I removed the disc. When I pushed the eject button nothing happened.i pushed off then the off text on the display blinking too.

I waited... no sounds nothing.
I pulled the plug

I gently pushed the tray back in.

When I powered it on again after about a minute or two it on and the last bit of the tray got in to place. The display was still blinking (see video)

When I pushed off it kept blinking off without anything happening.

I pulled the plug for 20- 30 minutes and tried to have a look inside the player to see if I could see if anything was in the wrong place.

After removing the side panels and the lid I didn't get further and gave up it was around 3.AM. and I was getting tired.

I tried a last time. Connected the power, powered it on and it worked, it made the sound I was missing before, no blinking. I could eject the tray
I powered it off and it powered off as it should.

I never tested to spin a disc though.

Any ideas on this third mystery issue. this is the only thread I've found about HLD x9 display blinking [HLD-X9] Limit Switch Help

Thats a very good question, I don't have an answer to that. Also I'm a bit hazy on the details perhaps I tried to help it back in while the power was on.

Well I hope you get it working again.
One of the issues sounds like slipping from the rubber mat, taking longer to stop etc.
Good luck.

That doesn't hurt anything and the answer is to get it the f*** out of the way lol.

:crazy: I've seen it done in the past on lower end players when powered on.
But I wouldn't push the tray in even with the power on let alone with the power off.

Such an expensive player too. :cry:
