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!

Hi,
Hopefully this will help solve your problem:
1. Press and hold down the power button located at the front of the PS3 console, until you hear a first beep, then eventually a second – before the console shuts down, then let go of the button;
2. Now press and hold the button again until you hear a first beep, then a second beep then eventually a quick double-beep, then let go of the button;
3. The TV screen should now display a six option menu, where you can select what’s required, i.e. `Restart System`, `Restore System` etc. `Reset System` should only be used after other attempts with the other options, as your game saved data may be lost. If you play Modern Warfare 2 online, then this won’t be affected as your data is saved on the Sony Server.
4. During any of the above actions, your best having your handset controller connected to the PS3 via the USB cord, which includes pressing the `P` button when required (located between `Start` and `Select`).
These actions should help solve `freeze` problems and others such as update errors etc – which restrict you starting up or playing your console.
Don’t hesitate to contact Sony UK if required, who are very helpful. Their UK number is: 0844 7360595

Good Luck!

hi cindy,
when you plug it back in, can you hear fan in the freezer, you may have to hold a door switch in so the light goes out, if you cant hear the fan, thats it
but if you can, check your door seals on both doors do they close well and air tight
if they do
you have a defrost issue, it is either the heater, timer or termminator,
sorry icant be more specific

Filming indoor concert dark lighting


only if engaged!

Just remember this..
there are things called STOPs F8 F2 F12 F16 etc larger the number smaller the hole ( aperture) Smaller the number larger the aperture. in low light you need to have a bigger aperture.

So F8 is a good all rounder but you might need F4 depending on just how dark it is.. you will need to do some tests prior to filming so check it out at home ahead of time

Combo lite/vent fan/nite light affected by heat?


There's probably a thermal switch in the fixture which turns the fan on when the lights are on for a period of time and heat accumulates in the fixture. It sound like the heat from the attic is setting off the thermal switch. When the attic heat drops, the fixture works correctly.

This is a catch 22 situation, because if the upper housing in the attic is insulated from the attic heat, the insulation will prevent heat dissipation from the heat generated by the fixture's light bulbs. So, for safety reasons, the upper housing should not be insulated.
I'll need to work on this to come up with a fix.
