Re: PS3 SLIM DISC DRIVE NOISE??

Nov 11, 2009
I too have noticed how loud the new PS3 Slim 250 gb is when loading games. I have not tried a BR movie, but my Uncharted 2 zipps about like an old ink printer and it continues through the game as it access info. My old PS3 40gb was very quiet (and just as fast). Also, the fan is noticeable as it churns steadily and constantly. Quite annoying. Called Sony and their tech sid that they have not been given the chance to  work with the new Slims and was clueless.

Only played Infamous and NHL10.  I had this clicking noice http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lc8NHDCX-JQ&feature=related with NHL. I tried the game on an other slim and I heard the exact same noise.  But since NHL last update, this issue seems to be fixed..

Yea, i have this sometimes. When i feed the disk into the PS3 slim, it does this clicking noise then 5 seconds later it takes in the disk fully, it's although when i feed it into the disk slot, it doesn't capture the disk where it needs to be. Anybody else have this problem???

I am sending my pos ps3 in for repair. Brand new 320gb and 3 hours in it began making that terrible grinding scratching clicking noise from the disc drive. feels like its getting hot. fan sounds like it has a short in it or it just cuts on and off when the disc drive is messing up. I dont know. i do know the thing has some problems. But seeing as it is only ONE day old I have already contacted sony and will be sending it in very soon. I am waiting for my box in the mail. A little noise is ok from a disc drive but not when it sounds like somthing is mechanically failed. DISSAPOINTED to say the least. If your ps3 is making clicking grinding scratching noises louder then what you think it should be i would be contacting sony also

What game were you playing when this happened?  I have a brand new 320gb as well and mine goes click......click...click..click.clickclickclickclickclick brrrrrrrrrrrrnnn (like a grinding at the end), and then restart that all over.  It constantly does this as I play through Kingdoms of Amalur.  It is pretty faint but still a very noticeable noise.  I think you will probably get back your PS3 though and it will make the same exact noise.  From what I have heard...it's strangely normal. 

Also on a side note LOADED_GLOCK45, if you let your game sit on the pause menu, see if when your disc stops spinning it makes this horrible loud BRRRRRREEEEERRRRRRNNNNNT grinding noise?  Mine does that and it always worries me.
