Loud humming

My 360S makes a loud humming noise, it started when i began playing BO2 and only humms while playing that specific game, theres nothing wrong with the disc and i have played several other games but it only makes the noise while playing BO2. The noise sounds as if its comming from the disc drive but i could be mistaken, the noise fades in and out and at times will just go away or completly rage. tapping the top of the xbox lightly makes it go away for a short time but still returns. Should I be worried and send it in? I would prefer not to because the warranty is up.

It wouldn't be normal for it to make a humming unless when the game is first starting out. Goes without saying, but do you have the disc installed?

If you tap it and that makes any sort of difference that doesn't sound good. Good luck.

I agree with CuddlyREDRUM. If you install your games onto your Xbox, it should make some kind of difference. Try it out when you have the chance.

Hey there!

Yes it is normal for some games to make a "humming" noise. You can always Install the game to your hard drive, witch can make it spin less, resulting in it being quieter! It also reduces loading times! If you see any damage on your Disc, you could take it back too. The humming is not a result of your xbox though.  Good Luck!

While all games humm when you play them, there may be some that humm more as other have stated. I highly recommend installing games to your Hard drive. While you may not be able to install all of your games (don't know how big your Hard drive is) you can install your important ones you play alot. It will deffinately help with noise and you only hear the xbox's humm while its just on. It also helps with load times and such.
