When someone say that his/her Xbox is having three Flashing red lightsproblem, It means it needs to be repaired. If you are using Cooler thanit is not a cure but a prevention. You could have used cooler beforeacutally having the problem just to prevent your Xbox. But now you willhave to either get it repaired from Microsoft (in case your Xbox'swarranty is not expired, but one thing to note is that you will have towait for at least 3-4 weeks to get back your Xbox) or you can Fix yourXbox's 3 Flashing red lights problem yourself with the help of DIY Video guide available on Internet. You can fix yourself without any technical knowledge.

PLAYSTATION3 80 GB has lights flashing:green,yellow,green then flashing red.had a dvd disk that would not eject.i took it apart and removed disk.the dvd had some damage in one spot.playstation will no


Hi there James
it seems to me like you have the yellow light of death, but don't worry this is something that can be fixed.
You have two options here
Option1 you can send the console to SONY for $150, they will send you a refurbished model oh and all data may be lost. The whole process usually takes about 4-6 weeks.
Option 2You can fix the problem at home with a PS3 repair guide worth only $40 a 3rd of the cost of sony, the ps3 will be fixed within the next hour or 2.
Hope this helps

Red light flashing


With the older FAT PS3, if you turn off the system from the main switch in the back then back ON. The red light should stop flashing. But if you do this and Power On again. Watch the color of the light. If it goes from red to yellow then flashing red light. Then this is the YLOD = Yellow Light Of Death. This can only be fixed by shipping it back to Sony ($150.00) or void the warranty and take the system apart to reflow the motherboard. There are guides on Youtube if you have the right tools. I have done the reflow many of times.

Screen flashing back and freezing during games


If your PS3 is freezing up then this happens in much the same way as the 3 red lights on the Xbox 360.

The GPU and the CPU heat up and you need to stop the heat to fix it.

You can send it in and pay $130 to get it fixed or you can use the recommended PS3 Repair guide that will have it fixed for you in under an hour!

Nothing comes on except the green standby light on PT-AE900E.


I have the same problem. It seems we have to reset the counter. This reset must be done via the beamer itself and not via remote control, since lamp is not working...

Green box keeps popping up in upper right corner


You should be watching your dvd's on an input and not on tv analog 3. Every time the tv "senses" a signal change in the audio that screen will pop up. Connect the DVD player to the tv by using either the red, white and yellow (composite) connections or using the green, blue, red, white and red (component). Once you are on an actual input that box will stop popping up.

Cant play anything on it


I had the same problem, After googling for a few minutes I found the reset procedure for this player.

1. Turn it on.
2. Eject any disk you have in there and close the tray.
3. Hold down the "STOP" button on the player (not remote) until the green light flashes red and the system reboots.
4. Insert disk and enjoy.

This worked for me... mileage may vary.
