Console Noises

Just wanted to make sure I've had numerous slims in the past so i'm trying to make sure if whatever occurences i get are normal with you guys.  First off whenever i start a game or application from the dashboard i hear this 1 second grind very quiet but noticeable but goes away and happens seldomly.  Moreover, my disc tray makes disc reading noise whenever i move my character or do some sort of function.  Also, is this a new update to where the slim doesn't fully power on until its on the right channel or is mine just messing up?  Lastly, can anyone tell me how loud the fan is supposed to be when playing games without installing?

The console should be whisper quiet, but it will make some noise in graphically intensive situations or whenever the console needs to read data from the disc. I'm not sure what you mean by not powering up unless it's on the right channel. Could you clarify?

How do you have your console connected to your display? You might try another cable or input on the TV.

CrAzY, if the game is only running from your disc drive a minute or two before quitting, please give this guide a try.
