Hitachi 42PMA400E plasma - bird like chirping

My Hitachi started making intermittent screeching/chirping noises. I assumed this to be the cooling fan's bearings. I eventually tracked down a replacement fan and have fitted it. Within 2 days the noise has returned, though not, as yet, so badly. Is there any component, apart from the fan, that could cause this sort of noise? Or have I bought a duff £34 cooling fan?

Ooops! Problem solved - it was the DVD player, which was supposedly switched off, making the noise; being positioned directly under the screen the noise had the effect of coming from the screen itself.
