Sorry, but you have the yellow light of death. This is not fixable using ordinary household equipment. Call sony, yellow light normally means catastrophic hardware failure.

PS3 has blinking red power light and nothing else


switch it off from the back,, hold down the eject button, and turn it on from the back,, it should spit the cd out,,

The ps3 needs to be sent back to be fixed it is YLOD..<--not good
it will take at least 4-6 weeks before you get your Console back. And also, if your warranty is expired, you have to pay a big fat $150,- to get the job done!

or go to youtube and look for a PS3 Ylod fix,,

While charging, i noticed that a red light was flashing - after it charged for about an hour, my son could not get it to turn on - it kept flashing red


Try removing the battery, and give it 30 seconds or so before reputting it in. Then try to start it again. If this doesn't work you may have to take it into a shop for further assistance.

My son plays his xbox 360 for 20 minutes and it cuts off and 2 red lights flash


Those would be the "red lights of death". They mean that there's either a software problem or a hardware problem, depending on the number of lights and their sequence. What I would do is google it. Find a site that will tell you what's wrong with it. If not, then you can always send it back to Microsoft and they'll fix it for a fee...

All four lights in the ring are red and flashing, the power light is green and not flashing.


the 4 red rings means that the av cable on your xbox cant be be detected, try to unplug it from the xbox and plug it back in. if that doesnt work if you have another xbox try hooking it up to that one, to see if you might have a bad cable. or try cleaning the metal part of the cable with a dry cloth. if nothing works i would do 1 of 2 things. 1. get a new av cable for the xbox, or 2 trying and get a replacement from microsoft.

What does 2 flashing lights mean on an xbox 360?


The two red flashing lights on the left side of the circle indicate the thermal limit has been reached. (over-heating) Check to see if the fan on the back of the unit is blowing air. There are external fans that can be added to keep the GPU. (Graphics Processing Unit) and CPU (Central Processing Unit) temp down. Keeping the temp down can prevent the dreaded RRD. (Red Ring of Death) Here is link as an example of a cooling fan. http://www.gamerepairparts.com/xbox-360-cooling-.html
Shop around and find one that you like. Remember, when it comes to these computer chips, cooler is safer.

Xbox 360 re red flashing lights


depends on how many red lights are flashing...

if you have 3 flashing red lights your machine has a hardware failure which means unfortuanatly your beloved is dead. in which case take it back to the shop and demand a new one. this is a very common problem.

if its only one red light the problem is your av/component cables are not connected correctly....good luck
