If you have the three red lights STOP! Don't try to fix it, but rather contact MICROSOFT and get it replaced!! Red lights means that it is a hardware malfunction and you can fix it for a little bit, but eventually it will still be broken. MICROSOFT admitted that they made a factory flaw and it is indicated by the three red lights. Talk to them and get them to send you another system.

Wont cut on then a yellow light comes on then a lashing re light appears

The PS3 red light problem occurs when your system refuses to boot up and has a small flashing red light on the power button. In most cases, the power button will turn from red to yellow and then back to a blinking red and the system will not boot up from there as it is supposed to.
There can be a variety of issues that cause the Playstation 3 red light problem, but in most cases it comes down to the system overheating. The more it overheats the more damage is created internally to the
motherboard and other functioning components. This can be caused simply by a flaw in the system or by obstructions to the fan vent such as a wall, floor, or excessive collection of dust.
Unplugging the unit from the wall and checking all the external components is a first step, but here are some further tips that will help you find a real fix for your PS3 red light flashing issues.

For starters, look at your warranty and see if it is still in effect. The only reason you should ever consider sending your console to Sony is if there is a valid warranty and they agree to fix it completely free. Otherwise, they simply charge too much and take way too long to even consider going this route.
If you do have a warranty still open, consider whether you are willing to wait a minimum of 6 weeks to have it returned and if you can accept having all of your stored date wiped off the unit before it is returned to you. Finally, consider whether you can accept a refurbished unit, since Sony often sends that instead of your original console.

If none of those things are acceptable or you don't have a warranty right now, you will need to look for a guide that can
fix your Playstation 3 red light issues on your own. Look for a program that includes all of the following:

1) Video instructions as well as a well written eBook guide.
2) Fixes for the red blinking lights as well as other common
PS3 flaws.
3) Great customer service in case you get stuck or have problems during the fix.
4) Bonuses that deliver extra value for your money.

There are some programs which offer just a basic eBook telling you how to fix PS3 red light problems on your own. While that is essentially what you need right now, these programs do not offer half of what you can get with other programs and can be more difficult to follow without including video instructions.

Xbox 360, when i turn it on 1 red light comes on, then when fan kicks in 2 red lights come on & it just cuts off

DO NOT OPEN THE CONSOLE!!!!!!!! Microsoft will fix it for free!

Alright, the one red light means it has a "Hardware Failure".

Since its 1 Red light it is known as the "e74 Error" Which lucky for you Microsoft will fix for free.

The 2 Red lights mean Your Xbox 360 is overheating.

Microsoft will fix it for free with free shipping. Takes about 2 weeks.
There is videos and different ways to fix it online but it will happen again with those half baked solutions and also with this Microsoft adds alot more time to your warranty.

Your hardrive has probably crashed. I have been trying to fix mine and after weeks of studying, i found out I need a new video card. If you have demos then my problem may be yours too. If you are trying to play games and it crashes, then it's the video card. The only game that works with a broken video card is Street Fighter 4, but you can't save. Visit this link for better instruction on how to fix non-video card problems. I hope it helps!
