Teac DV-L800 noise: fan?

I recently bought a Teac DV-L800 DVD player along with its companion, the AG-L800 receiver. The player works fine, except that after a few hours of listening, I finally noticed there is a soft whirring noise always in the background. You have to get within about 3 feet and listen hard, but it is there. At first I thought the sound was the CD revolving and was determined to send it back to the seller for another unit. (I've never noticed such a noise on any of the CD/DVD I've used.) But after reading a review that complained about the fan noise being noticeable during a very quiet spot in a movie, it occurred to me that the sound might be from the fan, not the disk. This doesn' worry me so much, since most fans I have known do make a bit of noise. Nevertheless, should I return the unit and ask for another one? It's a bit of a hassle to ship, the next one might well be just the same, and I don't listen from within 3 feet very often.

    Thanks, that's helpful! I am a bit puzzled, however, by the fact that I can't find a fan in the service manual diagrams for the DV-L800! There has to be one, doesn't there? I found the fan in the AG-L800 receiver manual easily enough, but.... The noise I'm hearing definitely stops except when the DVD/CD drive is playing.

    this sound is usually just the sound off the cd as it spins round this causes air to trave around the unit witch will cause this sound their might not be a fan as they all differ but you will get a noise when a disk is in on any unit it is nothing to worry about hope this stops you worrying i have a different make and mine has got the same sound as i have built several desktop units this is common in all of them and i have never had any problems so trust me this is nothing to worry about hope this rests your mind they all have certain noises hope this helps you......................

Can I connect an active speaker to the Teac AG d7900 output

It would have helped to know something morwe about the 'active' speaker.I imagine its manual would tell you what it needs for input.

Active speakers are usually designed to be driven by volume-controlled Line Level inputs. This receiver has none except for the Subwoofer PRE Output.

the answer is "YES". You can replace the laser (lens), that's the only option you have left since cleaning the laser (lens) did not solve the problem. This shows that the laser (lens) is dead. You need a brand new one.

So go ahead and replace the laser unit, its a very good idea.

Good luck.

Picture roll, loss of vertical sync.

I opened the cover, found nothing smoked or loose, no tweaks available, in short there was nothing I could do without diagnostic gear. All other sources in my system were fine, so simple substitution confirmed the problem was output of Teac dvd player. Taking it to a repair shop would be $50 up front for fix-or-not... So, I went to Walmart and replaced it with a Sony DVD player for about $40. Regret loosing the look of matching components with my Teac receiver, cassette player but it's job is to play movies. Fixtya!

My Teac DV-L800 player won't read any pre-recorded movies,the unit makes a whirring noise for a couple of minutes before coming up with read error.However if i put an audio cd in the unit it read this...

The optics are either dirty or are starting to fail. Higher laser power is required to read DVDs. Try opening up the unit and cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that fails, the unit will need to have new optics.

Teac AG-L800 'Protect' Error

Since the problem appeared to correct itself on occassion, I would first look for poor solder connections either at the output transistors or at the voltage regulators. Let me know if you need more detail.
