Why does my PS3 make so much noise?


It’s brand new so it can’t be a dust problem. When I play COD it makes beeping noises and it sounds like air is coming out. It’s on and off every few seconds.

  1. This is normal, the beeping sounds is the sound of the laser assembly moving back and fourth rapidly while reading the disc, occasionally it has to jump around on the disc to grab different pieces of information or to reference the disc’s table of contents for the data stored on the disc (Also called the TOC). The air sound is either the hard drive spinning, the disc spinning at a higher speed to improve reading time, or simply the internal fans speeding up to help cool the system. All of these are perfectly normal and there is no cause for alarm.

    I hope this helps!
