I'm having a great Xmas first the phono stage on my Roksan Kandy K2 amp stops working, just as I get a new ttable for xmas now my pride and joy my Denon blu-ray player has apparently 'died' on me.....I keep getting the same error no matter what disc I insert basically "disc error.....playback may not be compatible on this disc please eject", my first instinct was to try the lens cleaner....getting same message then I paid attention to how the disc was aligned when I ejected it....it always came out exactly as placed on the tray to go in....upon closer listening there is no 'whirr' as the machine would start the disc spinning....so imo it is not spinning the discs.....is there anything else I should try or just accept that my £800 blu-ray layer is dead after only 4 years...not even heavy usage max 2 or three discs per week  ?...Man this totally sucks......looks like I'm going to have to shell out for a new one plus a new phono stage for my amp.......ho ho ho merry xmas
