This multi-region bluray player has proved to be a disappointing purchase, as the power has failed completely after minimal usage, though unfortunately that limited usage was spread over more than a year, so I suspect I have no warranty cover. I have emailed amazon customer services re this today.
I should also highlight that this is the only one of many Panasonic AV products which I have had any problem with, over 30 years of buying various TVs, VHS/dvd, and now bluray players. Still by far the most reliable brand.
This is my second multi-region bluray player, the other is a BD75, which has been used several times a week for an even longer duration as the failed BD87.
The problem appears to be the power supply, which was a concern from the moment I opened the box. It has a hard-wired power cable, with a US/Canadian moulded 2-flat-pin plug, with a small UK adapter plug provided. This is not what was (& still is) advertised, it was supposed to be the typical "figure of 8" socket, with both EU & UK power cables. The model I received was manufactured solely for the US/Canadian market, and also contains only their warranty document, hence my suspicion that I may not be covered, even if the time period has not expired.
The unit also does not have a typical LED display panel.....but as it's no longer working, I can't really describe what it's like.
I guess I'll probably order a new Panasonic model, still multi-region, as I own a mix of area A/B discs now. I'd probably prefer to buy just a US region B player though, if I could check the power cable!
