When I turn my dvd player on, the volume will lower on its own to almost mute. It is hit or miss weather or not the unit will turn off on its own saying protect. All connections are good. Inside is clean....

When you've got good volume, try unplugging the speakers (only for a very short time) to see if that whining noise is still there or if it's stopped. We're trying to see if the whining is related to the low volume and "protect" or if it's only coincidental.

Try unplugging all the cables (except the power cord). Turn the player on & off several times & see if that whining noise acts the same. Also see if the player goes into "protect". What we're trying to do here is see if it NEVER goes into "protect" with the cables unplugged.

Last... try to get it to start & run without going into "protect", with all the cables unplugged (except power). Plug the cables in, one at a time, and see if plugging one of the cables in forces it into "protect". If so, there's something wrong with that cable or whatever's on the other end of that cable. Unplug it again & restart the player - no "protect"? Wait a little while, plug the cable in. "Protect"? Check the other end of that cable.

If it goes into "protect" with nothing plugged in except the power, then the player is probably a write-off, ready to be replaced (it's not very often that DVD players are worth repairing these days).

Rear wireless speaker ticking noise

I noticed the ticking noise stops if the rear wireless unit is powered on after the main receiver. If the main receiver is on first, then the rear powered up, there is no ticking. This is pretty retarded though since I want to leave my rear receiver on all the time and power down the main unit when not in use.

Loud whirring noise from home theater receiver

Sounds like a cooling fan is worn out. If the warranty has expired, remove the cover and there should be a cooling fan. Remove the fan. Try cleaning it out with a can of compressed air. If this does not work take the fan to best buy or circuit city and buy a replacement. I hopet his solves your problem!

I wonder whether your system stood around gathering dust for a while when you were looking for a new cable and that you now have dust on the lense. That could explain the inability to play DVDs and perhaps the noise also.

Could I suggest that you try a lens-cleaning CD, or if you can get at the lens, you could try cleaning it with rubbing alcohol (iso-propyl alcohol) or meths on a cotton-bud.

Chewing the cable could always have shorted something and blown a fuse, or worse, but these don't sound like those types of faults to me.

Cd/dvd player noise

Something could have been misalligne or not sitting properly in the DVD rom...if the grinding sound is mechanical. The only possible way to cure this is to open the DVD ROM and service its mechanism. Observe DISC that is played if there's any sign of scratches...sign tells that its touching or rubbing something.
Good Luck.
