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.

I can start my PS3 and a green light comes on, then after a short time I get 3"beeps" and a flashing red light, nothing else happens, its stuck in that mode, is this light of death I am aware...


That is one dead (overheated) PS3. Check out this article.
http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/Technical-Help/Flashing-red-light-and-PS3-will-not-start/m-p/5773865
Call Sony, and in the future, make sure you have sufficient ventilation all around the PS3. It's possible that it just spontaneously died, despite adequate conditions. All mechanical bits eventually die.

My ps seems to have crashed!! it will only turn on momentarily,the light goes blue for a second, flashes orange?? then turns off!! the red light flashes till i touch the power on sensor,beeps then goes...


Hi tomtoremar,

Are you seeing any flashing red/yellow lights?

If so this is the red light error and you will find that is why the system will not turn on.

Why Does It Happen?

The GPU and the CPU are the 2 main chips in the system and they deal with all of the number crunching however they can get very hot and if they lose connection the system will either freeze up or turn off and give you the red flashing light.

How To Fix?

The key is stopping the heat build up and you can either send it in and they will fix it for you.

Bear in mind that for the PS3 red flashing light error you will be waiting for about 4 weeks and it will also cost you $150 for the repair bill!

Other Ways To Fix?

You can also use a good PS3 Repair Guide to fix it and this will show you how to stop the heat build up with a few household items.

Just make sure that you get a good guide there are some good ones out there!

My playstation has the light trun green yellow flashing red light


With your PS3 turned off, press and hold the Power button on the front of the PS3 for about 10 seconds (the system will beep as normal as it starts up but after 7-10 seconds it will beep again). The video settings should now be reverted. Doing this will also reset any theme settings. try this? seems to fix alot of issues.

Hi There,

Unfortunately it seems as though you have a Hardware fault known as "The Red Rings of Death"

The flashing red lights indicate that you have had an internal hardware failure, probably on the motherboard, which stops the console working altogether.

The only was of solving this problem is by calling the Xbox customer support team. their number can be found on http://www.xbox.com/support

Explain to them that the Xbox has the Red rings on the console and they will probably ask you to send the Xbox to microsoft (Free of charge) for it to be repaired and returned to you.

Hope this helps !

Two Red Lights

The two left quadrants of the Ring of Light flash red on the front of the Xbox 360 console
This behavior occurs when the internal temperature of the console exceeds the acceptable limits. You may think of this as too hot, overheating, and so on. Make sure the fans are operating and the system has adequate ventilation.

Since you've been inside it's possible that a heatsink or some other part of the cooling system is not working properly or is loose. Check all these!

Good Luck!
