Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Loud clicking noise & don't read any disc

A loud clicking noise starts when you insert any game or dvd. It won't read, just click. I'm afraid it may be the reader inside and will cost a bundle to fix. Is the reader bad and/or any solutions? Thx in advance!

Disk drive is making a loud noise, and is no longer reading the disc. just makes a loud clicking noise when injecting or ejecting the disc.

PS3 blu-ray drives are pretty problematic. The best solution is to send your ps3 back (without opening it and trying to fix it yourself (voids the warranty)) to sony. Your drive sounds broken, happened to me once before, sent it back, and now its like brand new (took a bit for them to get it back to me though)

Maybe the disc reader in the Wii is having problems, this could be natural for the Wii, but if it isn't reading the disc, then try talking to the nintendo company and ask them that there is a loud noise in the Wii when its reading discs, they should know what to do. My Wii does that sometimes, especially Super Smash Brothers Brawl, but it still works though. hope that helps.

My ps3 wont accept a disc. if i try it makes a loud clicking noise

If your ps3 is not reading your discs this is most likely because of the lens moving slightly off key, you can fix it yourself or you can send it in. The good news is that it is quite an easy fix.

Loud buzzing noise

Mine is loud also when playing games. When playing DVD's it is not. I think it is a factory defect on some of the systems. I would not attempt to pull apart the DVD drive and try and fix it. It is working and on an XBOX 360 you should feel lucky that it is.

Loud Clicking noise and won't read UMD

I think the it is possible your UMD case is cracked and the clear part is pressing down on the disc inside. Check and pull the clear part of the case from the media disc.
