Hi im having a problem with my 120gb ps3 that i got back in April 2010,and coincidentally it started making a grinding noise in April 2012. Now at first it wasn't that bad but now it's insanly loud and doesn't go away but makes no noise when there isn't a disc. Please Help!

Probably just because of age.

That would be weird if true because before i got my Slim i had the 40gb since 2007! and it worked perfectly until march 2011 so i doubt thats the case.

The slims have typically had louder disc drives than the old fat models anyway or so I've heard.

Is the PS3 hot at all when its making these noises? Could be the fans helping the racket if they're dusty

No it's hotter than usual but might be dust.

I'd suggest giving the vents a clean using a hoover nozzle on them :smileywink:
