Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
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.
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.

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.
