wondering if anyone can help me with this, my ps3 has just started making a weird noise, i have looked for videos on you tube etc but cannot find any similar problems.
when the ps3 is turned on as normal or i am playing games off the HDD or browsing there is no problem, its when i put in a game (disc) it makes a very annoying clicking/grinding sound. it sounds like the sound a laptop would make. the sound is constant throughout the time the disc is in the PS3 and stops once the disc is removed, so im guessing its the laser reading the discs? is it normal? its not very loud and all games are workin fine i just dont want the system burnin out on me lol, ill get a video up soon as.
Though if it gets really really bad I would call Sony.
Oh, and would I be right in saying that's louder on certain games? That's just the speed the laser is reading it.
Hope that helped
My PS3 makes the same weird indescribable noise. It all started when i played the Fifa10 demo, the same thing happened with Fifa09 and Fifa10.. I thought it was Fifa, so i tested my GTA IV game.. the same ***** happened! It really makes me mad, because i paid a lot and i don't have my PS3 for a long time.
1. Weird clicking/grinding noise starts with Fifa.
2. It only occurs while a game is playing, not in the main menu.
3. It is annoying.
Should i ask a new PS3? because i have 1 year guarantee!
Should i contact the retail store?
