Playstation 3 vibrating problem

Since yesterday when i put a disc that is visual e.g. dvd or game , into my ps3 the machine vibrates like a tractor but when i put a music disc in it doesnt, could this be a fan problem ?the film or game works fine but there is alot of noise and vibration, the machine is relatively new and i have only played like 10 hours max on the machine.should i take it back to be repaired or is this just a normal thing for the ps3.

    Same as originally described but the vibration is extreme and could not be attributed to just a fan coming on.
    I have had my PS3 for some time.
    It does not appear to happen with all discs.

It probably vibrates more because of the fan kicking into a higher rpm because the PS3 is drawing on more resources to play video rather than just audio.

If you just purchased the PS3 then it's probably a good idea to just exchange yours for another model.

Your problem is definitely not normal.

I recently created a common problem repair and warning guide for the PS3. Check out my tips section for future reference.

Put a game disc into ps3 grinding noise wont show game icon


Make sure that you do not have the PS3 on it's side. Lay it flat. Insert a MOVIE DVD first and see if it will recognize the disc.
If you continue to hear a grinding sound when the ps3 is laying down that could only mean one thing, you need a replacement drive.

Dont forget to Always update your Playstation to the newest firmware.

PLAY STATION 3 WILL NOT PLAY DVDS OR GAMES AND MAKES LOAD VIBRATING NOISE WHEN THEY ARE PUT IN


This is the 2nd most common problem with PS3's. This isn't a bad problem. Your

laser/lens will need to be replaced. Do you see the time clock in the top right

corner going around and around? If so, you are just having laser/lens problems. If

you do not see the time icon spinning when you insert a disc, your PS3's Blu Ray

drive controller board has gone bad and you will need to send it to Sony and not a

3rd party technician. Certain problems are only repairable by Sony. Good luck.

The loud noise is just the system trying to work.

This could be caused by 2 things

1) The laser is dirty,and needs to be cleaned or
2) more than likely the laser has failed and needs to be replaced

Other than that check the spindle motor by putting a cd in the slot and feel the shell for small vibrations,if you can feel it the spindle motor is fine

If this helps,please give me positive feedback

Re: playstation 3 freezing


Update firmware for the ps3 via the sony website or send it in for servicing to sony. It is most likely that the laser has gone bad and thus the discs cannot be read as with alot of the 40gb models
