    Possible Ps3 problem: please respond.

    I have noticed a strange clicking or buzzing noise coming from my Ps3 after 1-2 hours of gameplay. I take out a disc and still makes the noise. I think it is something with the fan. So is this normal or should I open up my Ps3 Slim and investigate it.

    Sounds like the fan's got too much dust , if you look on youtube you can get a video which shows you how to programme the ps3 to blow the dust out

    Doesn't hurt to take a look does it?
    I mean, I'm assuming your warranty ran our already.
    It's not like you're going to go disconnect everything

    Having a quick look and dusting it off won't hurt if it really troubles you (:
    It's just a flesh wound.

    Just vaccumed it out, usually every week. If it still makes the noise ill look the thing on youtube. But I heard it damages the system in some way. And if that fails ill open her up
