Hi There,

Unfortunately it seems as though you have a Hardware fault known as "The Red Rings of Death"

The flashing red lights indicate that you have had an internal hardware failure, probably on the motherboard, which stops the console working altogether.

The only was of solving this problem is by calling the Xbox customer support team. their number can be found on http://www.xbox.com/support

Explain to them that the Xbox has the Red rings on the console and they will probably ask you to send the Xbox to microsoft (Free of charge) for it to be repaired and returned to you.

Hope this helps !

You need to clean all the dust out of the unit, you can use compressed air, but an actual air compressor works better if you can borrow one, depending on where you live lots of Car Wash places have 'em and while you're washing your car you could give your PS3 a good dusting ;)

Afterwards pointing a small mini-fan towards the PS3 while you play is a HUGE help.

Hope this info helps!

hello try a fan test to see if the fans are working properly , take the power lead out of the back then reinsert the lead in while doing this press and hold the eject button you should hear the fans boot up. this may blow all the dust out, also try an update on the console good luck

My PS3 freezes while loading online Call of Duty 5 matches


Most PS3 freezes I have seen are due to overheating. When it freezes touch the PS3 and see if it is getting overly hot. If it is then you may need to get an additional coolant fan for the unit so that it can dissipate the heat more effectively. As for the CD recognition issue it may be a bad or dirty lens. You can try using a lens cleaner with liquid to clean the lens and see if resolves the issue.

Sai.

After roughly ten mins of play the screen pixelates and freezes


You might be getting ready to experience and E74 error or the RROD. I had 3 that did the same thing. The whine is the fans running 100% and then just turning off

Ps3 freezes at startup screen/ green red dots/lines,


Turn off the PS3 with the switch on the back, then turn back on. wait till the light is solid red then hold your finger on the start button for abount 10 seconds until you hear it beep twice.

It will then ask you to connect a controller via the usb cable and press the PS button. Once you do this it will bring up the reset menu.

Unfortunately the only way I found that solves this is a full system restore that wipes the hard drive completely.

You do however retain and data saved online such as COD stats etc and playstation store purchases with your PSN.

Hope this helps??

WHATS WRONG!!!!!


First off, less of the CAPS!  We understand you're frustrated as would anyone with this problem but please don't shout at us...
Please could you tell us if you have had any red light errors, did the console freeze before shutting down?  Is the console well ventilated?  Please explain with a little more depth ;)
