  1. Xbox 360 slim making strange rattling noise when moved


    So I recently noticed that when I pick up my xbox 360 slim to clean it, reposition it, move it to another tv, or whatever, it makes this strange rattling noise. It's not super loud, but obvious enough that I was able to notice it.

    This doesn't seem to be effecting gameplay, but I just what to know if this is common or is there something loose inside the console?

    Also just to note, my old white xbox never made a rattling noise when I went to move it, I have have NEVER MOVED IT WHILE A GAME IS RUNNING as I know this can potentially cause damage, and I bought it used so I doubt it still has a warranty on it.

    Thanks!

    :)

    What is this weird noise my 360 is making?!?! *Video Inside*

    Hi Guys, long time no see!

    With BF3 round the corner, im quite peeved that my new Xbox 360 Slim is already making stupid noises.

    When a disc is spinning at full pelt, it is making this weird noise like something is loose and rattling.

    It makes the noise when you touch the console to, so i unplugged it and made a video of me poking the console -


    Can anyone please tell me if this is normal? or a common fault? (To me it sounds like the bearings in the cooling fan rattling)

    Thank You!

    Xbox 360 Slim rattling noise

    When i put in my copy of Xbox Live Arcade Game Pack my 360 has a rattling noise and won't read the disc. The disc also has no scratches and i have tried using my console both vertically and horizontally but it doesn't seem to change a thing. Every
    other game i play works fine though so I don't know why i have trouble with this one.

    Controller making strange noises when it vibrates

    Hey Pedrohr360,



    Just to check, when you shake the controller does it make a rattling sound besides the D-pad moving? Its not abnormal. inside are spindles that spin to make the rumbling effect. What kind of noise is it making vs when it is rumbling?



    Reach back and lets know what you find

    slims or Super slims(e) supposed to make noise

    What kind of noise is it making? Is it a rattle? If so, try removing the vent cover from where the hard drive sits. That's what I did when mine was making noise.

    If it's making noise when you're playing a disc based game try installing it to the hard drive.

    Xbox making loud buzzing noise

    My Xbox 360 Slim E makes a loudish buzzing/humming noise when i start up most games and makes the noise for about 3-5 minutes , i have the games installed on my hardrive , is this normal for it to do that

    external harddrive not good enough?

    how can you tell the read/write rate? do you recommend any other usb device? i don't do a lot of gaming on my 360, it's mostly just for exclusives so i don't need a lot of memory, but the problem is that for whatever reason the system makes this sort of
    odd rattle noise when a disk is being read, but when it's installed it doesn't. the noise isn't constant and seems to me at least, to have something to do with the drive moving back and forth, but it is considerably distracting.

    360 Slim power supply noise

    What kind of noise does it make? Is it buzzing or grinding noise? The noise is coming from the little internal fan and it's been know that some faulty units make this noise.

    The power brick on my Xbox 360 Slim used to make a loud grinding noise when I had it from new. To stop the noise I used to pick up the brick and give it a few hard taps with the palm of my hand. Once I did that it didn't make any noise for the duration of
    that play session until then next time the machine was switched on again.

    Strangely enough, I never had the brick replaced and it now it no longer makes any noise. If you are concerned though and you can't get the brick be quite you should take up a repair request with Microsoft Support to get it replaced.
