Possible that the mainboard is not working as there are errors within which it does not proceed to switch on.
The processor needs to be checked and confirmed if this is working, check for heating of any particular IC's as this must be probed. also check the loading drive.

That sound is made by the platters of the disk rubbing on the reading heads - the hard disk is dead , it has destroyed itself. All the data is lost.
Sorry, there is absolutely nothing you or anyone can do about that.

There are some black highlighted buttons near the top of the remote control. These are your DEVICE SELECT buttons. Ensure you first push the button corresponding to the device you want to control, and then try to use the remote to control that device.

The fact that your remote can control the TV indicates that the remote itself is probably working fine. If you still cannot control your recorder after pressing the proper DEVICE SELECT button, then your recorder may have a fault in one of its control signal receiving circuit boards. If this is the case, it is unlike that it can be economically repaired. Since your recorder cannot function effectively without a working remote control capability, I recommend purchasing a whole new unit, preferably one of higher quality, such as a Sony product.

Good luck and take care.

Simple test: use a different system of connecting the player to the tv. If you have used the HDMI use the analogue ones (Composite video-yellow and audio -red and white) and the other way around. If your tv doesn't have HDMI then switch between the analogue outputs - Composite and S-video. Of course use another cables plugged in another sockets in the tv.
If it's the same then the defect is in the unit - the audio converter section from the main processor has failed. The only way of fixing that is by replacing the mainboard, which means that the unit is effectively dead, time for a new one.
