Just wanted to throw this question out there to see if anyone had seen this. I bought a slim off someone via Craigslist. It was in perfect condition, never opened (I know because I was the first to remove all warranty stickers). Before I even opened it to flash, I tested it out with an original game just to make sure I didn't get ripped off, etc. The system itself works great, but I noticed the "beep" it plays when you press the power or eject button is LOUD compared to my other slim. I'm talking 2-3x as loud. My other Slim has a soft pleasant volume, but this one is loud enough to almost cause a little discomfort in comparison.

Yeah this isn't really that big of a deal I guess since you only ever hear the sounds a few times in a gaming session, but it still kind of bothers me. Are there some models that just have a louder beep than others? This one was manufactured in 12-27-2010. Or is there some kind of volume control on the beeps that I'm not aware of? I tried Google but there wasn't anything out there on this issue that I could find.

Like I said, not a big deal, but would be nice to fix. Let me know if you guys have heard anything this.

I havent come across a louder than normal sounding slim. So i can't help you out. I would check for a bad solder joint on the ring of lights board. maybe the guy tried a ROL mod and then gave up. And, left some solder splash on the track leading to the bell input via button press.
