Sorry I think this has been disscussed before but I cant find the thread
Anyways my 160GB Slim has been making popping noises I have no idea why but it better not be bad. My PS3 isnt even 6 months old yet but it seem to already have a couple of minimal problems.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Yes, I get the same exact noise with my slim. I always thought of it as thermal considering it was only sitting there and would suddenly make the noise, and I relate it to the *ticking noises you hear after you shut off a vehicle.
i just had this same problem with my ps3 and whenever i turn it on it makes a popping noise and it turns off and you can also smell a type of burning plastic by the power outlet at the top left of my ps3 please help!
