I would guess you have alot of dust in your console might be aworth opening it up and using a can of compressed air to blow all the dust out.... also some of those fans are ball bearing and it may be going bad and not pushing enough air anymore that would cause the system to over heat and cause your problem too

PS3 fan keeps making noise


If it's an older system, break that thing open and clean it! ^^ If it a newer system, or you just don't feel like stripping it to clean it, then use an air compressor to blow the crud built up in the back of the system. Make sure the compressor hose is dry, as you don't want water to get inside your system. Good luck, and I hope this helps.

My desktop computer will display anything when turned on, and the fan and hardrive both make a loud constant noise.


Maybe you need a larger power supply depending on if you might have added more hardware such as a graphics card, or an extra monitor to your system. This sometimes results in an inefficient supply of power, making your fan to your power supply work harder, thus making noise.

Just replaced trans 2 weeks ago. Now, i go out to my car, and its making a horrible noise, like the fan was stuck on something. 2 different ppl told me it was the motor? You agree or should I check...


best advice here is ask a local mechanic who will be able to tell you exactly what it is without even lifting the bonnet ,i would tell you exactly what the noise is if i could hear it ,as this noise could be anything from a clutch bearing if a manual or a flex drive plate if a auto but without knowing the full info of the vehicle i honestly cannot say

PS3 WHEN CONSOLE SWITCHED ON IT BEEPS THEN TURNS OFF AND FLASHES RED


My guess is its going to die soon. I would back up most of your stuff on a hard drive if possible. If it gets that far. I had this happen to my 40GB PS3 about a year ago. It turned on for 5 minutes then off. Soon after that it didn't turn on. And it was making really loud fan noises.
What are the specs of your PS3 and was it making loud fan noises before? Consider buying a new PS3 slim?
A quick guess that i just thought is try doing the fan test before turning it on. Turn Off PS3 completely (switch in back) Hold eject button and Turn on switch.

NOTE: This is dangerous and can harm the PS3.


Good Luck

Fan blades will not move when first turned on then when finally get going fan makes horrible rattling noise


Either the bearing on the motor has gone bad or maybe a little spray of w40 may solve the problem. Provided the fan blade is not touching anything.

1st 80Gb ps3 model gets hot really fast..


Make sure that your not placing your system on any sort of carpet or rug this will cause the system to overheat. Also check the fan on the back of the system and make sure that the fan is clean and not full of dust and other sorts of stuff. If this does not stop then i would go buy a cooling fan for it just to make sure it dont fry the motherboard!!
