why does my PS3 make noises?

5 replies 3325 views Edited Nov 13, 2011

when im playing a game it makes noises, i guess when the disc is spinning or something, i dunno if the disc tray is loose or whatever, but my PS3 doesnt move, i have it sit there so its not like im moving it around like a maniac and possibly loosing up the disc tray nor do i leave CDs in my PS3 when its off, so im not sure exactly what the problem is

Anything with moving parts makes noises. As long as it keeps working the way it should, I wouldn't worry.

ya it works perfect, except that noise is annoying, and it scares me into thinking its breaking or scratching my discs which it isnt, so i guess its fine

Dont think there is one console that is totaly silent,loading they make noise,fan kicks on makes noise,its normal i agree with the comment "if it works fine no worries" I tend to keep mine as dust free as possible,when its making more noise than usual then its time for the vac
