I had that noise, then sent it to Sony -.- luckily the noise is gone.

 

I thought it was a noisy fan, like, a bad fan bearing that was spinning or something.

 

But yes, it's true.  I even tried exchanging the first one that had the noise, but the second one had it too.  I took the second one and sent it in to Sony...as a week old system.

 

The noise is unbearable, whatever it is.

it is the laser reading the disk. it is seeking. and this is where the wear and tare comes into play. and this is why many of us believe the games should be stored to the HDD rather then being played from the disk.

SCEA’s decision to implement Update 3.21 placed Plaintiffs and Class members in a “Hobson’s Choice.” PS3 owners who chose not to install Update 3.21 could no longer access
many of the other important PS3 features including the PSN, the ability to play games online, the ability to access online features, or the ability to play newer PS3 games and/or Blu-ray discs that required Update 3.21. On the other hand, PS3 owners who did install Update 3.21 lost all access to the computer functionality of the PS3’s “Other OS” feature.

I know that it is the bd drive working, but this noise is so loud and boring, and my new ps3 250GB doesn't  make this noise. So i gave up to exchange mine. Imagine you in the middle of the night, everybody sleeping, and this noise in your ear!!!!

Step 1: Spell stuff right.

 

Step 2: Send it to Sony.  Took OVERALL about 8 days from sending it in to getting it back.

 

More than likely you won't get your original system back, but mine is quiet

There's nothing you can do without opening it up or sending it to Sony.  Do it while you're under warranty
