This can be one of two things, if the fan blades are chipped in anyway then the fan will be out of balance and wreck the bush that the fan runs in, i would say that its more likely to be dust thats worked its way into the bush and its running advise is to buy a replacement fan that are not expensive, give the unit a good blow out before you fit a new one
a "get you out of trouble" remedy would be to gain access to the fan spindle and put a drip(and i mean a very small drip) of light oil to lubricate the fan..ive done this on pc fans for years but its better to replace them in the long run.

One day when i went to play my xbox i turned it on. It made a weird noise it had never made before. Then i realized my TV had no picture or sound, my controller won't connect and the usb ports are also...

It could be a couple different things , the cpu/vga fan , or the dvd drive are the two most common . If you can tell wich is causing the noise that helps a lot . If it's the fan , I would get a can of compressed air A.S.A.P. , more than likely if this fixes it , it will only be temporary . In the case of the fan making noise it's normally about to die or has some sort of blockage ( either way you don't want to even risk running your system without having it repaired / replaced ) . If you have to open up the Xbox 360 it's not a bad idea to put Arctic Silver #5 on both the CPU / VGA then replace the Heatsinks ( minus the horrible X-Clamps , check for a full tutorial ) . If the sound is coming from the dvd drive you can easily test by swapping out discs , running a disc drive cleaning device / kit , disconnecting the dvd drive & booting your system without it or with a compatible replacement .
One last thing , take note of any blinking lights ( RROD , E74 , Etc.. ) as this could be causing your noise issue or just a symptom .

PS2 Cooling Fan not spinning

well could just be shot fans are not suppose to last forever the best thing to do would be replace the fan, make sure that the fan is not plugged up with anything and it has free movement when spinning if it struggles any then its seized up which would have to be replaced measure the fan and take a look on ebay for a replacement fan of that size but if you search for ps2 fan replacement then chances are that it will cost alot more.

if you need help finding a replacement let me know im more then willing to help out.

good luck

Ps2 fan

Is your machine a old one or a slimline version??
Slimline version have a micro fan and can be replace it.The old one is even better because are cheap and you have a lot choice.Just make sure you get the right one.I believe is a ball bearing fan so if the balls inside get dirty or sticky ..or just defective from nature....nothing more you can do then get a new part.the noise is cming from micro vibration in rotation and all that 2000-3000 rpm in a minute make a lot noise

Grinding noise, ps2 scratching disks and freezing.

Thats the lazer head getting too close to the dvd's, means that it either needs proper cleaning with a good quality dvd cleaning disk and solution, or needs to be replaced.

Ps2 - stops reading disc

there is a little wheel type thing that the cd sits on when it goes into the drive, the wheel makes the cd spin, these often wear out , after you play it for 27 mins the device heats up which causes it to slip , which would most likely be the noise that you can hear , it wont cost you much at all to get this fixed at a game console service store, if your sure the cd is still spinning after 27 mins , and making the noise , it is the laser cog slipping , in this case it is best to replace the whole laser section, which is one part , and if your handy at things like that i suggest you just go and buy the laser reader from a game console repair store , and swap it over your self , it is pritty simple to do ,

Between the ps2 and the TV, loop the cable around a metal rod or post of some sort. This should disrupt the interference you are getting which is caused by the electricities frequency! Hope this helps!
