My sons xbox shows 1 red light


This is known as the E74 error. This is caused when the unit overheats causing solder on the board to melt and bridge(connect). Once this happens it shorts out the board causing the error you have now. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty.

If the unit is not under warranty go to www.wiredextreme.com. We are a console repair company based in Texas, and we can get your console up and running again. All of our repairs come with a 90 day warranty that covers everything on the console, not just what we repaired. We also offer extended warranties up to 4 years at additional cost. The cost of repair is $60 and includes round trip shipping. If you have any other questions/concerns feel free to email support@wiredextreme.com or call toll free 1-888-389-3038.

I just purchased a pre owned xbox360 and got it home. Connected it to my none HD tv. upon powering the unit on it keeps freezing. I purchased a 20GB HD with the unit. I have not put the unit online as of...


Unfortunately if the xbox is freezing, this is usually an early sign of the 3 red lights error, commonly called the RROD (Red Ring Of Death). This may not be the case necessarily, but it is a common indication. The only thing I can recommend is to keep the box well cooled, heat is a major factor in the xbox freezing up. Put it out in the open (not in an entertainment center) and possibly put it on a laptop cooler pad. I don't recommend the enermax cooler, they have been known to fry xbox motherboards in the past.

If you do get the three flashing red lights, call Microsoft at 1-800-4MY-XBOX. If the box wasn't registered to the previous owner, you may be eligible for the warranty.

3 Rings on my refubished xbox elite.


Microsoft only does warranty with the original owner , kinda stinks:(
Overheating just a secondary issue , The main problem is the G.P.U
has broken connections under it , giving you red lights. Don't
worry about all the error codes they are conflicting some times.

You have two options

1 have a shop that has a re-flow capabilities re-seat the
G.P.U and remount the Heatsink with out stressing the
P.C. board ( very important detail)

2 Do it your self, there are relatively simple procedures
that are safe for the unit and will get you back in
the game ( a standerd xclamp mod ) has more than likely
all ready been done on your unit if so you will need to
do some extra step to recover your unit , ill advise if needed

Nintendo DS won't power-up


It sounds like a faulty battery. As it is under 1 year old, it is still under warranty. Return it to the origional place of purcase, who will either fix or replace it.

My sons Xbox had the 3 red lights! It depends what colour of light is showing on your power pack the colour indicates what the problem is! The light will either be red,amber or green, my sons light was amber and that was due to a faulty power pack, Microsoft were very obliging and replaced the power pack free of charge,it arrived in 3 working days! Here is a link that will take you through the different lights and how to fix the problem!

Three red lights


three red lights (no error message) - two reasons for the red lights: hardware failure or power supply unit failure.

when the three red lights is showing check the light on the power supply unit. if the light is green you console is experiencing a hardware failure. you need to send the console to MS service center or if you have no MS support in your country look for someone who knows how to repair the console or go to xbox-scene.com and look for information on how to repair the console yourself.

if the light is orange, red or no light at all, there might be a problem with the power supply unit. disconnect and reconnect the power cables from the 360 and reconnect them again. if there is an inter-cooler connected at the back of the console, remove the inter-cooler and turn on the console without the inter-cooler. try also a different wall socket and if the light on the power supply is still orange, red, or no light when you turn on the console you need to replace the power supply unit.

PS2 not staying on


It's either a faulty power-pack (the boxy thing that is between the unit and the wall) or it's in the unit itself. If you know someone else who has one see if you can borrow their power-pack and try your unit on it. If the problem persists with the other AC unit then it is on the motherboard and will be likely unrepairable.

Xbox will not turn on


The 360 was not properly tested before shipped to stores meaning it has alot of problems. It probably over heated(left on over night) which caused the dvd drive to overheat, frying the laser and or more. I suggest returning it to the store, or sell it on ebay and buy a used one. sorry I could help more, but as far as I know fixing this is risky and costly, I would have to say buy a new one or a different console.
