I have just bought a TEAC DRH-300DAB and when I play a CD a consistent light ticking sound appears after about 5 seconds, and then doesn't stop. It is not very noisy, and is not through the speakers - it is very much the CD unit. The noise is not replicated with a DVD playing!
Please help as it's driving us mad!

It is a job for a Technician and there are no user serviceable parts inside a unit like this- people usually wreck the units as they are delicate. The Laser pickup does not often times go bad that easily and that is just a persons way of sounding like they know what they are talking about but without substantial proof I do not just take that as fact. Many many other things can cause a malfunction other than the laser- it can be a nad spindle motor, platter distance can be wrong and can even be dust on he lense. I have working Sony decks here from 1987- these are the original pickups- same kind you have I bet.
Firstly double check that the recordable discs you have bear the label "Digital Audio" on them as per the attached picture.
Secondly what happens when you go through the finialise procedure in the manual?
Do you see the ?FIn--d? display when you select the finialise button?
Do you see ?NO TOC? and ?REC? indicators blinking at the next step?
Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
Sicne this is a new system, don't waste time on it. Return it for an exchange. The CD portion is not working. The reading message indicates that the unit detects a disc, but can not read it. This is usually a problem with the optical assembly or the processing board. Neither should be a problem at this time. Replace it under warranty.
This is just a guess but it may be worth a try. I have heard that Audio CD-Rs, which are the only media this machine will record onto, are famous for being finicky about being played on different kinds of CD readers. My suggestion is that you "rip" the Audio CD-R's content to your computer (in .wav or .MP3 format) and then make a copy of your album onto a reagular CD-R which is more likely to be played on any CD reader.
Not sure if this'll work for you but it's worth a shot.
Hope this helps.
