When I place a DVD in the center console player in my brand new 2006 XC90, a ringing noise starts up just after the DVD reaches its spin speed for playing. The noise appears to be coming from the player itself, and not from the headphones or speakers.<p>The high-pitched sound can easily be heard even when driving on the highway with the radio on.<p>Has anyone else had this problem? <p>My service rep isn't sure if the problem is a defect or not, but a search through google reveals a similar problem with some external DVD players for PCs (typically, users just returned the DVD player). Unfortunately, there are no other XC90s on the lot with RSE to try out.<p>I was thinking of contacting the RSE manufacturer myself, but there does not appear to be any identifying markings on the player, remote, or instruction manual.<p>I'd really welcome any suggestions!<BR><BR>

Re: Ringing noise from Rear Seat Entertainment System (Dadoftwo)

I have not had any noise issues with mine.<p>Have you tried another DVD to see if the problem is with that disc?

Re: Ringing noise from Rear Seat Entertainment System (Dadoftwo)

we haven't had this problem either. the system is a little quarky, but I haven't had any outright problems with it.<p>sounds like your service rep should go ahead and replace the unit.

Re: Ringing noise from Rear Seat Entertainment System (Thomas)

Good idea, but I did try different discs. The "Pocahontas" disc makes the same annoying noise as "Princess Sing Along Songs".

We had the RSE in two XC90s (an 05 and an 06) neither has made any noise, silent and happy as a clam with a DVD running.

Re: Ringing noise from Rear Seat Entertainment System (need4spd)

<p>Dont ask them to fix it, ask them to replace it under warrenty. It is defective from the beginning.<p>Forget the player MFG, it isnt their problem. This is Volvos problem and they need to take care of it.
