ps3 new super slim high pitch noise problem
Posted 04 December 2012 - 03:54 AM
When standing it up, it seems to fade away.
I'm not so bothered by it, as long as the ps3 doesn't crap out on me.

However Uncharted 1 isn't working. It crashes the PS3 every time it tries to start the save.

I took the PS3 with me out of state when I was taking care of my mom after her surgery. I didn't have the receipt on me & had no way of exchanging it at GameStop >:( I did buy a Square Trade extended warranty, but I don't want a repaired or refurbished console. I want a brand spanking new console. Guess I need to look into my options >.>

Now I'm actually thinking if GameStop still sells the older slim and I could probably replace mine, though I highly doubt it since I can't track it on their website (save for the used/refurbished ones).

I would say bad disc probably. Mine worked fine, and I just popped it in, patched and away I went. I think it's about $12 used at Gamestop.
Well, as I said, ours is not making the sound at all. I did get Uncharted 1 to work by deleting the patch and saves (not sure if that mattered) and redownloading the patch. Now the game works, but the cut scenes are a stuttering mess. I have to pause and resume over and over to get through them. The game parts work perfectly, though. Maybe I have a bad disc? If so I'm not sure if I can return it since it was part of the BF bundle. Uncharted 2 doesn't have any issues. Nor does Infamous or our other games.

As an update just wanted to say that I took it back a few days after my first post and best buy replaced it quick and easy.
The sound is no longer there and works perfectly. I will admit that the disc spinning can be loud, though not grating and annoying, but i believe that is just a general thing when it it loading. Which depending on the game can go on an off for a few seconds as it loads the current area especially if it is a game that preloads to get rid of loading screens.
Apparently it is a problem with the hardware.
Good to see that I am not the only one having the problem though and i'm not just acting crazy.

And to be fair, I then tried putting our slim 360 vertical... and it made the thing far louder when spinning a disc, worryingly so. Brrrwwrrrr! I put it back horizontal too. The only system I have that works perfectly fine vertically is our Wii (probably U too, but we don't have one of those).
I don't find the disc seeking noises to be that big of a deal. It's intermittent and not bothersome. The fan is a little loud, though, when it's running. I think if you put it in a TV stand (and not on top of it), that isn't so noticeable.

One annoying thing you have to be mindful of is remembering to close the tray door after you remove/replace a disc. My TV stand is also black so it's harder to notice when I forget to close my tray which allows dust to settle inside the tray.

On a related note, Uncharted played perfectly for me last night. No problems with the cut scenes at all. Weird, but I'm happy it's playing right now. I don't know if I got past whatever disc imperfection was causing the problem before, or if it was some other issue. Maybe the disc was just dirty then?

Bought it at GameStop (Uncharted 3 bundle), and I still have the receipt, sealed copy of the U3, and unused controllers and cables -- they'll replace it no probs or whatsoever right? Just wondering since this is the first time I'm trying to replace a bundled unit. I'm also planning to switch to the white one too if it's possible (don't mind adding a few bucks) next week...
