3 Red lights problem is one of the most common problem of Xbox 360. 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.

Xbox 360 power button light keeps flashing and disc tray does not open


Hi when the power button flashes red if you hold down the little round white button under the dvd tray and keep holding it down then press the open button for dvd then it will flash a number of lights write this down.
it will be flashing 1 2 3 or 4 lights so write it down then hold down the white button again and press the draw open button again and write down how many again.
do this 4 times all together and tell me what code it has given you then i can tell you exactly what the problem is

so for instance
you hold down the little white wireless button and keep holding it down then press the open button for the dvd tray and say 4 lights are flashin
so write down 4
then hold white button down again and press open button again
it may flash 4 again
then do it again and it may flash 2 lights
then again and it may flash 2 again

when you have gotten these 4 codes post me a message and tell me exactly what they tell you and in the correct order so it may look like this
4 lights flashing
2 lights flashing
1 light flashing
2 lights flashing

if you look at where the button is where you turn it on well you have the green light in the middle well around this is four outer lights that light up red their are 4 of these 2 at the top and 2 at the bottom either side of the green light, their the ones that flash green when its spinning rounf with green lights so write this code down then ill be able to tell you exactly what the fault is ok

let me know then i can assist you further ok

I turn my PS3 on and after a second it turns itself off again but the red light keeps flashing. It started doing this while playing games but now it doesnt even start. What can it be?


Hello,

There's a switch in the back, the only benefit of using the power button is that it can be turned back on with the controller. Dont use the switch when your game is saving or anything is downloading because you could corrupt the saved game/download (I don't think it'll let you turn it off from the front button when it's writing to the hard drive- the switch in the back actually cuts off the power.)

Re: PS3 turns off alone and red light keep flashing
You officially have YLOD or "yellow light of death". I have had it twice.. I also wanted my data.. so I researched.. no matter what you do.. if you send it to sony its gone.. it cant be recovered outside of the ps3 or in a different one. I know a guy who will repair your ps3 leaving all your data intact for 80 dolllars.. he sells his service on ebay and if it breaks again within three months just ship it back to him and he'll fix it for free. If you want to know just PM me


Clean out the vents with vaccuum cleaner. If symptoms persist, call Sony.

Take care......

My ps3 it goes green beeps twice then goes red and flashes on/off


you might be holding the power on button to long. you hold the power on button until it beeps to reset the video output. try turning it on by using your controller. just press the ps3 button and if the red light is on then it should come on.

Ps3 wont eject just turns itself off


Try booting the system while holding the power on button. Hold the button and keep it held until it turns off. After the system shuts off, try turning it on normally. Let me know if this helps.
