If you allow it to sit for a few hours i have seen the problem correct itself! the solder cools and forms a "temporary" electrical connection and your unit may function for another day or even few weeks. you can then get a little fan to point at the right side of the unit and hope for the best. DONT play for extended periods of time; this will overheat unit..turnaraound time is 48hrs when i fix those problems. With SONY you can wait up to 8 weeks or as little as two weeks.

PS3 Blackscreen in game initiation / refused my disc.

its done, kaput, if your lucky, you can find a local repair shop...but if you tried the stupid "heat gun" fix, your main board is toast because it has inadvertantly half reflowed other components. The heat gun fix, if done perfect, works maybe 2% of the time for a period of more than a month. Worked on a hundred PS3's and most of the time they come in like that, its a new logic board and almost cheaper to send to sony

My nintendo wii crashed and would turn off by the power button so l unpluged it and then pluged it back in but it wont turn back on

I am afraid your Nintendo Wii needs to be repair. Now, you have 2 choices. Either to send it to the repair shop who would charge you with 150+US$ and take 2-3 weeks time, OR you can repair it yourself by sitting at home.

I would recommend you to use Complete Nintendo Wii Repair Guide that would allow you to fix your gaming console within no time. You can fix your Wii with the help of Wii Fix Manual and make your console work again without any problem. Save yourself time and money! I used it personally and now I never send my Wii to some repair shop, EVER!

It sounds like your ps3 is overheating. You should send it in to Sony if it is under warranty because if it gets any worse they will charge $150 to fix it.

Wii wont power up, is plugged into working outlet

This is an internal problem that only Nintendo can fix. Just call them and they will tell you how to fix it and if they cant they wiil ask you to send it in. But in your case they might just give you a new one. You could of fried the thing from leaving it on for long periods of time, or it was struck by lightning ect.

My ps3 keeps freezing. whats wrong?

It is just overheating and losing connection with the soldering. To fix it when you send it in will cost about $150 or £90!

You can fix this at home using a top guide or send it in.

Ps3 doesnt read any disk

Mine did that as well. The problem was unfortunately severe. Once my system froze for an extended period of time and the lazer actually fried itself. I had to send it to sony to fix. If you are still covered by a warranty, it would be best to send it to the company. its hell though
