Seems to me like your PS3s BD Drive died on you. How old is your console anyway? Is it still covered with warranty?If XBOX 360 has 3 Red Lights of Death, PS3 has overheating and BDDL (Bluray Drive does not last!!!).

Xbox is red ringing...no response on screen.


I take it you mean four red lights in the ring?

According to a Microsoft article:

This issue may occur for one of the following reasons: • The audio-visual (AV) cable is not connected correctly or plugged into the Xbox 360 console. • The console is not detecting the cable. This issue does not occur if the AV cable is plugged incorrectly into a television, a stereo, or a VCR.

The article goes on to discuss potential fixes, so it's worth checking it out.
