    Hi guys

    Just wanted to ask if anyone knows why this happens. When I turn the PS3 on and it's starting up, it makes a clicking sound a few times and after about 3 mins it's ok up to the point where I turn it off and the clicks come back for a few mins. Only happens in the first few mins of turning on or off and that's it. It's sort of similar to when you sometimes turn your TV on or off and it makes that same sound.

    Anyone have any ideas on what could be causing this? :confused:

    Sounds like expansion due to heat (especially if it does it when off). You have a cold room I guess.

    I've got the exact same thing with my PS3. I've always put it down to expansion/contraction.

    My PS3 does this as well as does my TV but i've had no problems with either so i wouldn't be worried.

    Happens most times with my PS3 too, I'd not worry about it.
