Grinding noise on PS4 during startup

Posted on 14 June 18 at 15:07
I usually just put my PS4 in standby when Im not using it, but Ive noticed this even if I turn it off...

Turning it on, for the first 10 seconds or so after boot up, there is this crazy grinding noise that comes from the PS4. Whether there's a disc in it or not. I thought it was the disc drive making the noise, but I guess it could be the fan also.

The noise only last 10-12 seconds max and then stops.

Anyone have anything similar happen with theirs and know what this is?

It could be the fan, since the Blu-Ray drive only spins when a disc is in the console upon start-up.
