Buzzing Noise From Console

Randomly my console will make a buzzing noise that comes from the Disc Drive.

If I push down (Probably a bad idea)lightly in a spot over the disc drive, it stops.

Any idea as to what can be causing this?

Hey there Mr Off Topic, if this issue is a nuisance, and the console is under warranty, I would highly suggest sending it in for service.  I know the downtime is not something you are looking forward to, especially around the holiday season however, there could be a number of issues with the system that would result in creating a buzzing sound. Example: and I'm merely speculating here but, the bearings or belt on the dvd drive could be going bad or it could be something entirely different.  My slim is very noisy when spinning up games but I've yet to experience a buzzing sound. Also, with a disc out of the tray and the device unplugged, flip it over to see if any of the rubber boots are missing, it could be slightly off balance on the surface (not likely).

 

In Any instance, you may start a warranty ticket here. http://myservice.xbox.com/

Which model is the referenced console and how old? It is possible that it is simply wear and tear on the console thus effecting the performance of the drive. Other than being irritating it shouldn't cause any problems.

Its probbally just your Xbox's case vibrating. You may also notice the difference in what the console sounds like by what kind of surface it is on.

(I.E a hollow shelf will make tons of noise

Hey fellas, thanks for the answers.

To answer the first question, my console is only a couple months old; basically new. I realized now that it is only the disc revving up in the tray. The noise occurred while I was playing Black Ops 2 and it made the noise akin to revving an engine (not the actual deep baritone of a car, but the point). It may just be the disc just reading, but who knows...(Console is level).

Ahh Mr. Do you have enough space to install the game onto the hard drive?
