No, the fan is not meant to run all the time, and not with the unit in standby. The fan in many DVD recorders is usually only meant to be active whenever a disc is loaded and is either recorded or played back - the fan is designed to circulate the airflow for the DVD drive and its associated digital controller circuit. If the fan is still running even after you ejected all discs/tapes, and turned the unit off at the front, then it will require a service technician's attention in a fully equipped workshop. If the fan does not run when the unit is in standby, then you have no fault; it is a normal condition.
The fan will not switch off when the player is in hdd record mode, for instance if you set the hard drive to record a weeks programs then the fan will run for the week ! its one of the many down sides to this unit......so in a nutshell... you have to live with it ! sorry. chris
From the info you have given, your player is probably running a few degrees hotter than usual. This causes the fan to spin at a faster than usual speed causing that noise. It can happen if you keep your player in an enclosed space blocking the heat vents from dispersing the heat. Make sure that you place it in a location where it can disperse heat more easily. This will hopefully resolve the issue.
Hey there cyclonesid, capacitors look like little batteries, and have a shiny flat top with perforation lines on it. If the capacitor is going or gone, this flat top begins to peak and sometimes show points of corrosion. jpe is associated with thermal fuses which are used to protect devices from excessive ambient temperatures. These are not expensive and relatively easy to replace (if required) by a professional. I hope this helps. Good Luck!
