Loud humming / buzzing noise when Slim PS3 is powered off

13 replies 486 views Edited May 7, 2013
I noticed about a week ago that my Slim PS3 was humming when it is powered off. I got out of bed and walked past it and I heard it humming/buzzing. Is my Slim dying?

Maybe something is wrong with the power supply? Usually I hear humming/buzzing noises when I'm close to a power line. (I wait for my bro at 12am in a lonely driveway and there's a power line there that yells at me... that's how I know.)

 

Try being more descriptive. Try to guess what it is, because it's really hard to say something from just a sound.

It's not the power supply, the surge protector where it's plugged in is 3 feet away from it. It just sounds like the console is still on when it's not. It doesn't sound like the fan per say. It just sounds like something in the housing is humming. It does have a sound that is reminiscent of a power line hum.

I've had my Slim for over a year and I've noticed the same thing since I got it.  I play it all the time and nothing seems wrong.


Yes, I did create that game on the Vita you probably never heard of.
