loud noise ps3 :(
My ps3 makes a very loud noise when i play any ps3 game. it never used to do that before. places ive taken it to says they cant fix it and that its nit the fan. it sounds like a pair of hairclippers. please help??
Does it play games, dvd's and blu ray disks ok? Just guessing, it sounds like it could be the laser as it is moving back and forth in very jerky movements causing the noise. May be the tail-tale sign of the laser going out.
I see your posting is over a year old.
Just wondered, did you ever manage to sort the problem out ?
Only my superslim ps3 is doing exactly the same.
Mine too i hope someone has an answer for it cause im afraid to even turn it on anymore because i dont know if it will explode or not.
There is nothing wrong with your system if the noise only happens with games it's just the fan, when you start a game it requires more from the system than when you play a movie. The PS4 is new and the fan sounds like a jet engine when you start playing games rather than watching movies. So there is no need to worry your PS3 will not explode
Your electronic eye or your fan might be the issue
Well I found the problem and I fixed it has to do with the microchip inside of it it needs new thermal paste I just did this to my machine and it's quiet as a mouse quite a !&&* of a process but it works if you're patience.
Sounds like your thermal paste inside the machine has dried up . The best way to do this is strip everything from your motherboard. Bake it in the oven for 5 minutes at 450 , than let the motherboard cool completely, than apply a fresh thermal paste , put back together than , everything should be quiet again
mine is making noise and it's a little warm what shall i do?
It is your optic laser when i had the problem it would have cost me 300.00 Canadian you are better off spending the extra money on a Sony PlayStation 4
