Anyone having problems with Ps3 SuperSlim 250GB Uncharted 3 Bundle?


I just exchanged one for the 3rd time last week! The first one I had was making this high pitched whining noise coming from the rear vent, I assumed there was a problem with the fan so I returned it and exchanged it for a new one. Then the second one I had seemed fine, no whining noise. But then after a while the disc drive started making this odd chirping sound when spinning at it’s highest speed, and I never recall it sounding like that when I first got it. So me being the neurotic freak that I am, I returned it yet again! And now, less than a week later, the disc drive in the new console is making that same chirping noise! Is this normal or is it a malfunction?

Also, every console I had seems to blow hot air from the rear vent after playing for about 15 – 30 minutes. Since everyone I ever had did that I assumed it’s a normal functionality, but just to be on the safe side I’d like to know, is anyone else is experiencing that as well?

  1. The hot air coming out of the rear vent is natural. Most likely with the disc drive, it’s going to be natural as well because the laser has to be on and running whenever you’re playing games. And since the Super slim’s disc drive is bad compared to the older models and being slimmer, the noise is natural. Have a good day.

  2. That chirping sound you said is normal. It happens on all superslims, even on mine one too. Though, the fan makes loud noise after playing a intensive game for more than 2 hours.
