Your player has probably been dropped. I would take it to your nearest Panasonic center or store and get it replaced or buy another E55. Repairs are going to be costlier than the unit itself.

Some notes on keyboard leave a horrible piercing static noise when volume is turned three quarters up.

Sounds like feedback from your monitors, the speakers can't be pointing in the direction of the mic.

Could do with a service.
Check the turntable motor and drive plus check the cartridge and signal wiring.

My speakers started buzzing and making a horrible noise during the night. I had to unplug them to get it to stop. What's going on?

Feedback. Check the wires, might have a bad connection. Wiggle them around and see if the buzz sound stops or changes. If that happens, its usually that wire. Good Luck.

My external hard drive fell, and now my computers are not reading it. It makes some funny noises, then the front light stays yellow, and it halts any activity.

ok disconnect the hard drive,put the hard drive in an air tight bag/container and put it in the freezer/fridge for about 2 hours then remove the hard drive and attach it and then check it should work now,if you still hear the scratching one of the discs inside the drive has been dislocated or damaged and so in a closed room open the hard drive if you are not afraid and you'll be able to re-settle the disc if its dis located,however if else try what i mentioned above and ignore the scratching sound,
I have tried this and its worked for me

Locate Speakers for 2006 Ford Expedition Limited

If you are installing a radio, you can use a small 1.5 volt battery and scratch each pair of wire, this would make a scratching noise which tells you which wire is for which speaker. Other than that i don't know the reason for locating the speakers.

Trying to fix an old record player - Califone. It seems to be making a scratchy sound even though I have replaced the needle. It almost sounds like when the two wires from a speaker touch... same...

May be the "winding" on the speaker. If it has got damp at some point(you may not notice any on the casing) the cardboard tube that the coil is wound around swells and "rubs" in the speaker. Thus producing a scratching sound. Try connecting to another speaker, just to test and if it sounds fine then that is what it is.

Scratching (static) noise coming from computer speakers

I foudn this in anther forum:
I have an ASUS motherboard P5E3 Premium. The audio that came with it was the Sound Max audio. I also noticed abnormal sounds coming from the speakers. They included sounds during hard drive activity and also with mouse movement. They were not loud but noticable. I searched all over the web but didn't find the answer. I stumbled across the fix myself. I also have vista-64. In the sound control panel > speaker properties > levels... there is a pc beep slide bar. I noticed that if it is disabled then the abnormal sound went away completely. Problem solved. Hope this helps.
