My DVD/LD player is playing up. Specifically the Open/Close mechanism isn't working and a disc is trapped inside. Grrrr.

I can't complain too much - I've had the player for 7 years and 3 moves (including two interstate moves) so thats quite a good service life for electronics goods these days.

UPDATE: Good News: There are at least two service centres in Canberra so I've got a fair chance of finding out if a repair is worthwhile. And their details on the Pioneer website are up to date which is reasurring.

Bad News: Getting there with the player in one piece. Welcome to the downside of the car free life...
