Denon DBP2012 gone kaput when playing 3D
English

Went to watch a 3D bluray for the first time in a few months last night, only to find that as soon as I pressed 'play' on the 3D version of the film the player started making a horrendous grinding noise. 

Tried the 2D version of the disc ('Hugo') and it was fine, tried a different 3D disc ('Life of Pi') and heard the grinding noise again, tried a different 2D disc and it worked fine again. 

The player is outside it's two year warrantee (purchased in September 2011), so the question is do I bother getting it repaired or grab the silver lining around the cloud here and by an Oppo??

Speak to the retailer and cite Sale of Goods Act. I cannot expect a premium player to break down so soon.

Thanks gents. Brought it from Peter Tyson and am driving up to Scotland in a few weeks for a holiday so could always stop by on the way up to leave it with them. Will give them a call in the morning and let you know what they say.
