Default Help Needed Pioneer 03 or Argo BD Disc Issue?

Guys,

Not sure if this is in the correct forum I recently bought Argo and was viewing it at around chapter 9 my Rec(Pioneer 03) and BD player power off, I thought wow what caused that ??
Powered everything back up jump to the same chapter and same thing happened again.
So I fast forward so continue with the movie and near the climatic airport scene when they have borded the plane and are on the runway as the plane is being pursued bam...power off.
So I get everything powered up and fast forward the chapter and Im able to get past the scane where the power failure occured.
After the movie I wanted to see if it would happen again sure enough I get to the airport chapter the power down/failure happens again not in the same exact scene however.
Now my first question has/is anyone experiencing this issue? if so I can assume this is a disc issue not my equipment, if not then what/why would my equipment being doing this?
I give my rec a heavy work out with either tv viewing or netflix, ps3 something seems to always be on.

Can anyone give me some insight on what caused this Im REALLY hoping this is a BD disc issue that can be resolved by returning Argo and getting a different disc.

Any suggestions?

No not louder than normal, btw was watching netflix and ths occured again so Im now becoming concerned this is related to the receiver or possibly the BD player.

If its my receiver "overloading" whats the cause of this and whats the fix if any?

something i would suggest is to buy either a voltage tester or an outlet tester. these can test the amount of voltage that is coming through the outlet. this will tell you if it's an electrical problem or not.

also, i would try that particular disc on someones else's system if that's possible. if not, then i would try another disc on your system with the volume turned up to how you normally watch movies or at least to the volume level at which you were watching argo. make sure to turn on anything else that was on at the same time you were watching the movie.

as well, i'd think about getting a gfci outlet to put in place of the standard outlet if there isn't one already there.
Will Disney ever release Old Yeller and Big Red on blu-ray?

Good ideas, I do have all my gear plug into a panamax, do you still suggest voltage tester?

yes, i still do. it's a way to test the voltage coming directly out of the outlet. it's just one of those things "jut to be sure".

as well, since you said you have your gear plugged into a panamax, you should call around to some electronics stores in your area to see if any of them can run a check on something like that to make sure it's pulling and putting out the correct amount of voltage.

when it comes to your gear, you can never be too safe.
