Its possible that your disk drive is broken if your console is under warranty i recommend sending it in to Sony for repair, if not its your call if you want to send it in for a price, or see if you can fix it your self (which is beyond my knowledge and i DO NOT RECOMMEND)

PS3 Clicking noise is associated with the hardware aspect, so that's your starting point it may come from the PS3 fan clicking, so do check out the fan if there's something that might have got stucked in between. Clogs from too much dust or dirt may also cause PS3 clicking sound.

PS3 clicking noise may also come from the hard drive. The hard drive are a bit noisy because of the mechanical parts and moving drive head when reading and storing data. Again, if the noise level is very minimal, there's no worry. PS clicking noise fro the hard drive that becomes too audible may signify that the hard drive is having mechanical problems and may soon broke down. At this point you may want to backup any data you have



I hope this helps you.

Not playing any game


Are you connected to the internet with your PS3? If you are make sure you have the latest update. If not you can download the latest update onto a memory stick via your PC and just plug it in to the PS3

Clicking Noise


It depends where the clicking noise is coming from. if the sound is coming from the front of your Console Chances are there could be something loose within the PS3's Blu-Ray drive, if its coming from the back, there could be something affecting the cooling fans such as something stuck inside like dust etc.

if your PS3 is able to play Games and Blu-Ray Discs fine, i would seek Sony technical support, just to make sure everything is okay. you wouldnt want your PS3 to break !
