I got it. The same thing happens to me. You should put the game in and if the browser and system configuration comes up click on the browser. If the game and the memory card show up click on the game. If just the memory card shows up it will say disc could not be read and i think the game might not work. But if you want to try to make the game work, put a little bit of soap on your fingers and cover the whole entire game with it, the run it under the water and make sure all of the soap is off. Then try the game. But if that does'nt work and you really like the game, clog up your sink with water and put soap on the game and then let it sit in the water for about ten minutes, if this does'nt work i dont think anything could make this game workd.

My wii remotes are not responding to my wii unless i am within a foot of the receiver anyone know why? and how to fix it, thanks


  1. Access the Wii System Settings
  2. Click on the blue arrow to reach the Wii System Settings 2 menu options.
  3. Choose "Sensor Bar " and select "sensitivity"

  • Use the Wii Remote to get the cursor to get the two white dots in the test field.
  • If you see two blinking dots, then the sensitivity is currently set correctlyIf you don't see two blinking dots (they don't have to blink at the same time), adjust the sensitivity with the + and - buttons of the Wii Remote until you see two blinking dots.
  • Select "Confirm" to save the setting.
Please note that the higher the sensitivity setting, the more sensitive the Sensor Bar becomes to sunlight and various light sources. This may impact the operation of the Wii Remote. The initial recommended distance for using the Wii Remote Pointer is 3 to 8 feet from the Sensor Bar.
Seeing more than two dots?
If you see more than two dots on the Sensitivity screen, then the Wii Remote is picking up on additional light sources. Verify that there are no bright light sources, including sunlight, behind or near the TV, shining towards the Wii Remote or reflecting off the TV screen. Avoid sources of infrared light in the gameplay area such as electric, propane or kerosene heaters, flames from fireplaces or candles, and stoves or other sources of heat.

Using the directional buttons, highlight [Browser] and press the (X) button.

Press the (X) button to play the disc.

if still not work then apply this
Just take some rubbing alcohol and cotton buds. Gently clean the lens. If this won't help - the laser needs to be replaced. Don't worry, they are cheap now.

Whenever I turn it on, white dots start flying across the screen on my Xbox 360


Hi,
It sounds like the the processor is over heating and its causing the system to shut down before it burned up the board. Basically your thermal paste between your processor and the heatsink is not doing its job. There could be a crack on it might have just degraded over time.
This can cause the system to freeze or see white dots on the screen. It needs to be repaired before more issues happen. Dont turn it on you might cause more damage
Thank you

I dont know


If you receive an eight digit 800 series error code, there may be a few solutions.

Update the System Software.

Visit Playstation 3 System Software Update to download and install the most recent version.

To check what version of the System Software is currently installed on your PLAYSTATION 3:

1. From the XMB home menu, go to (Settings) > (System Settings) > [System Information].

2. The system will display the System Software version number.


Power-Cycle all Network Equipment

Power-cycle means to turn the networking devices OFF (i.e., unplug it from the power source), and then to turn it back ON after a set period of time. This will allow the network devices to refresh its settings.

Please power-cycle ALL of your network equipment, including any wireless access points, routers, Voice Over IP (VOIP) modems, and broadband modems for two (2) full minutes. After 2 minutes, you can turn on (or plug in) your equipment.


Check Your Enviroment

  • Make sure to allow adequate ventilation to flow from the PLAYSTATION 3's vents (i.e., avoid obstructing the vents with long/shaggy carpet, inadequate airflow from cramped entertainment cabinet setups, etc.).

  • Make sure to keep the PLAYSTATION 3 away from excessive dust, smoke, steam, extreme temperatures, humidity, or direct sunlight.

  • See the PLAYSTATION 3 system Safety and Support manual for full details on Safety Precautions and Use and Handling (manual included with the PLAYSTATION 3 system and available for download from PLAYSTATION 3 Manuals)

Restore Default Settings

During certain troubleshooting situations, it may be necessary to restore all of the PLAYSTATION 3 system settings back to their original "default" configuration.

  1. From the XMB home menu, go to (Settings) > (System Settings) > [Restore Default Settings].

  2. Once you select [Restore Default Settings], you will see a list of settings that will be restored. Scroll through them and press the (X) button to restore the settings.

  3. After the operation is complete, you will see the initial setup screen that appeared the first time you turned on the PLAYSTATION 3.
    You will need to go through the initial setup screen before you can use the PLAYSTATION 3.
IMPORTANT
The Restore Default Settings feature will erase any previously saved settings and restore all of the following settings to the default:
  • BD/DVD Settings
  • Music Settings
  • Chat Settings
  • System Settings
  • Date and Time Settings
  • Accessory Settings
  • Display Settings
  • Sound Settings
  • Security Settings
  • Network Settings
  • Internet Browser Settings
Also, do not confuse "Restore Default Settings" with the "Restore PS3 System" option (the next option down on the menu). The "Restore PS3 System" will not only restore the default settings, but it will also delete all hard disk content (You will lose all saved content from your PS3 system's hard drive if you use "Restore PS3 System.

Hope this helps.

Game freezes and dots appear on screen


I hate to break it to you, but you may have gotten the Red Ring Of Death. It happens when playing a game and it is transmitted through online play through Xbox Live. 3 red lights will appear around the power button when your console has become infected. The Red Ring of Death may have infected your console causing it to shut down. Most Xbox 360 consoles won't turn back on but some do turn back on but they just won't play games, they will freeze up and have the dotted lines and make the buzzing noise. I'm sorry, but I think you may need a new console. You're in luck if it's still under warranty. Hope this helps!!!!

No video, appears to be no video sync, diagonal rows of dots. Not an HDMI TV, switch is in TV position, cable checked ok by using a new cable, same problem


Sounds like you have an incorrect output signal from the Xbox or a fried chipset in the Xbox. Test the Xbox on another TV or monitor, test another video source on that same connection, if both of those fail, replace the Xbox. Hope it helps!

A series of dots appear on the monitor but no game pictures


Follow the steps below, Hope this helps

1. Try another Av cable ( Audio video Cable )

2. Try another television

3. If the steps dont work, call xbox customer support to have your xbox serviced. Good Luck! hope your console still has warranty

The main reason why its acting that way its possible that the Video card inside the xbox 360 is having an issue
