Did you install the jumper?

Yes, jumper is installed. I should note I've never used the digital out on this CDP. Maybe there is a problem there?

Check the voltages on all 3 chips in 4 places. It should read: 3 x 5V and 8V (on DAC)

It works. Unfortunately, the digital out on my "good" CDP doesn't so I am running it with a cheap Sony DVD player. Thanks for your patience and help Peter.

It still seems like the chip is drawing too much current, as normally, the voltage before regulator should be 11-12V and after regulator 8V (on a DAC).

I noticed that also but wasn't sure if I should be concerned or not.

It will work, but certainly it's not normal. What is the power of the transformer? It seems like it's not producing enough voltage.
