Turns on but wont load

I just bought COD 5 and it required a system update so i did it but it froze up due to an error so i clicked to ok icon and proceded to start over. I shut the system down and turned it back on but nothing came up no start up screen or anything. The controler dosent even seem to connect neither does the dvd remote... The light is green and thats it... If I put in a disk it loads but nothing else happens and I am able to eject with no problems

Well it seems the system update has "bricked" your machine. i have a shop and we see this all too often. sometimes if you pull the CMOS battery out and replug it that will work. the system update seems to temporarily "overheat " the RSX processor resulting in a no video output. letting it cool for an hour an repowering also tends to help sometimes. if under warranty call SONY or pay them 150plus tax for repair...and it can happen all over again with the refurb they send you.....(sigh)
we fix those problems for $55 (you py shipping)

Check for a system update, the update should resolve the problem.
To preform a system update:
  1. On the Nintendo DSi Menu, use the stylus to select the Settings icon.
  2. Select the right arrow three times to reach the fourth page, then select "System Update."
  3. Select "Yes," then "Next."
  4. Select "I Agree," then "OK" to begin the update.

Was playing COD 5 and then after a game was over, went to switch to the next map and it just said Loading... Loading... With the COD logo saying loading. It never loaded, so I waited waited, then had to...

well, it must be a problem with your game files, because most loading processes are done by the Installed game files .
if other blu-ray games are running well, i guess you don't need to worry about the lens .

please try:
  • Reinstalling all your game data files
  • Reupdating your system firmware via USB Device (download the update from Playstation Website)
  • Restoring your system (don't forget to backup all your important files !!)
else, contact Sony support centre for possible hardware issues checking (i belive there isn't anything wrong with your ram or gpu units....)

E 71 error on xbox 360

Sorry timehrhart you've just copied a huge section from Xbox Scene forums without mentioning the Reset codes.

Back to the question - E71 is due to a dashboard update, most new Xbox consoles get this error due to missing a patch that was available to download when the new Xbox dashboard came about.

To fix this you have to clear all game updates and clear the console cache and update your console via Xbox Live. To do this on the old dashboard layout go to the 'System' blade and then Console / on the new dashboard go to 'My Xbox' tab and then go to the far right and choose the 'System Settings' and then Console and then go to the 'Memory' section. Press Y and enter this code - X,X, Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X,X.

You will get a message asking if you want to clear your cache, press Yes and just wait for it to do it's thing and it should come back to the dashboard. Now you have to update your console via Xbox Live and hopefully it should fix the problem.

If this should fail then you have to send your Xbox back to Microsoft for it to be fixed. Microsoft have extended the warranty of any Xbox to 3 years if it has the E71 or Red Ring of Death error, so hopefully you should be covered.
