When someone say that his/her Xbox is having 3 red lights problem, It means it needs to be repaired. If you are using Cooler than it is not a cure but a prevention. You could have used cooler before acutally having the problem just to prevent your Xbox. But now you will have to either get it repaired from Microsoft (in case your Xbox's warranty is not expired, but one thing to note is that you will have to wait for at least 3-4 weeks to get back your Xbox) or you can Fix your Xbox's 3 Flashing red lights problem yourself with the help of DIY Video guide available on Internet. You can fix yourself without any technical knowledge.

When i turn on my xbox360 the ring of light comes up fully red no green what so ever and it won't let me go onto the dashboard it comes up that i need to contact xbox customer support at www.xbox.com/


When my Xbox had the red rings of death, I tried a number of options, however the only thing that worked was bringing it in for repairs. If you have not taken the Xbox apart the warranty is valid and Microsoft will fix it for free.

Xbox 360 lack of memory


(over-driven formation). this may be caused from not updating when nescesary. xbox needs to be kept updated in order for it to work properly with its hardware and software. it will work harder than it should if not. which may cause a burnout. its rare for smoke to be coming out. the "red ring of death" (A.K.A your xbox just died from over heating) should have flashed before then. unless it has one tough fan system. or you just might have a defect in the xbox OS (operating system) and the xbox 360 needs to be returned or have the hard drive replaced, which can be expensive.

My gameboy advance sp resets for no reason then sometimes also if I touch the game pack or the screen part it will reset then too.


Important Note:
A few older Game Boy games may not function properly on the Game Boy Advance systems, causing display or sound problems. Also, a few multiplayer games may not work properly.

Note: It may be difficult to play Kirby's Tilt 'n' Tumble due to the motion sensor in the game, and the different orientation of the Game Pak in the Game Boy Advance SP.
Because the Game Pak is situated upside down in the Game Boy Advance SP, players would need to tilt the game in the opposite direction of where they want Kirby to roll.

Note: It is possible that the problem you have may be game play related. For example, if you cannot defeat a particular enemy, or are missing an item you need to complete an area, the problem is likely game play related and there is nothing wrong with your game. Please check our game play help for assistance.

General Game Pak Troubleshooting Steps:
Check the list of specific game issues to see if there are any known problems for the game you are playing.
Make sure you are using only licensed accessories with your system. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible with Nintendo systems, and may not work correctly.
Remove and firmly re-insert the Game Pak into the system. The Game Pak label should be facing away from the machine. Be sure the Game Pak is fully inserted. You will know it is fully inserted when you hear it click in place.
Turn the system on and test the game again.
If it still doesn't work, remove all accessories to see if the Game Pak works correctly without the accessory. If the game does work correctly once the accessory is removed, then the game pak and the accessory may not be compatible. Check the game pak instruction manual.
What to do if Troubleshooting doesn't help

Game Boy Advance Games

Please use our Licensee Directory to find the company's contact information. If you are not sure who made the game, you can use the Game List section on this website to look up the game. Who made the game is provided under "Publisher" information. If the game is made by Nintendo, please click here to find out what options are available for repair or replacement of your product.
All Other Game Boy Games

Power button going red


A red power button means that you have either not got the wires plugged in at the back properly or you have a red ring of death (RROD) and if you do have a red ring of death you will need to get an expert/ person at a games store to fix it or you might have to get a new console alltogether. =]

The red rings will pop up then they will go away
