Default Is your XA2 loud?

I have an A2 and an A20 that are both whisper quiet in operation, but it seems that the XA2 I got about a month ago is very loud when running. You can hear it from 20 feet away. I get black screens popping up once in a while during playback also. Just wondering if maybe I have a hardware problem that I should send in under warranty.

Have you updated the firmware? (use 2.7 and not 2.8, you will have to download the firmware on a computer and burn to a CD and not use the online update on the player). If so, that sounds odd. Was it used? Have you tried using a can of compressed air to blow any dust out, it could be overheating. Does it have enough ventilation? Just throwing hints out there for you.

Yes, tried 2.7 and 2.8. I have the hacked versions so I can go back and forth as I please. I wondered about overheat too. But, it is in the same spot the A20 sat in and I even moved the shelf above it up a little just in case. I am leaning towards something being slightly wonky on the internal drive. It is under warranty so I may just let Toshiba have a look at it. I was trying to get a feel for what others have experienced. My A2 and A20 are totally quiet units.

The fan in my XA2 while you can slightly hear it, it is by no means loud. Something must def be wrong with your unit.
