PS3 Slim makes really annoying clicking noise!!

4 replies 130 views Edited Nov 21, 2012

What is this noise?? It's so bad I can't play games, and it usually only happens when I play a game. It's fine when I watch Netflix. Any ideas??? This started happening a few months ago...

That would annoy the hell out of me too!

 

I can only think it's the disc-drive making the noise, if you know what you're doing you could try replacing it yourself, otherwise it's off for repair, sorry.

¤ Me being me, I would want to open it up and have it running to try to find out where the clicking noise is coming from.

 

I'm not saying you should do this, you're at your own risk there.  Just saying, I would want to know where it's coming from and figure out a fix for it myself.

 

Good luck

It's the lens trying to read the disc thru all that dust probably. Maybe you should vacuum the vents like your owners manual says.
