    I just got a Panosonic LD/dvd player on ebay and it has an odd problem that
    hopefully somebody can help me with
    It plays DVD's fine all the time but almost always doesn't "recognize" a
    laser disc.
    The symptom is it will load and position the laser but not start the disc
    spinning but after a few seconds opens the tray and ejects teh disc.The blue
    light that indicates that other than a Laser Disc is loaded blinks the whole
    Ocassionally 1 in 5 to 10 times it immediately recognises the laser disc I
    get the message that the component outputs are being turned off I get teh
    spinning disc Icon and that the disc starts spinning. and the blue light
    goes off. Once started it works great
    To rule out a dirty disc I can have tried several disc and even run then
    stop it and never remove the disc and then it won't start
    Hopefully somebody has seen this and I can avoid the ned to return it
    Thanks in Advance
