If you've got a flashing red light on your console, it's probably overheated. Make sure you've got plenty of space around your system for it to breathe and it isn't in a location that's hot or enclosed. If you've got flashing red lights on your controllers, that means they're charging or that they're not paired with the system. Press the PlayStation button on the controller to make the flashing stop. Good luck!

    It sounds like your PS3 system is in need of repair. You should contact Sony, because it's possible they can fix you up right over the phone and save you a lot of time. I wish you luck, and a speedy fix!

The circle is flasing red and tv screen turned part blue


I am guessing the whole circle is flashing red. Usually when the XBOX 360 does this, it means the A/V cable is unplugged or broken. Chect that the cable is plugged in securely in the XBOX and TV. If this doesn't help, unfortunately may need to get a new A/V cable for your XBOX.
Good Luck! -AC

Wont turn on flashing red light


Hello,
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}
"When the power status light flashes red after using the PS3 system for 3 or more minutes and shuts off, the PS3 system has possibly over heated. This may be caused by poor ventilation or the vents may be blocked."

"If this happens:





· c Check to see if the vents are blocked. If the vents are dusty, vacuum the vents to remove the dust.



· If the PS3 system is in an enclosed area like a bookshelf or entertainment center, move it to a more open area.



· Leave the PS3 system off for 30 minutes to let it cool down.



· If you continue to have issues, you will have to send the system in for service."

Hope this will help..

Wii remote wont connect ?


if it wont sync after using the red buttons then its just bad batteries from the sound of it or the remote has gone bad.

Try fresh batteries or let the rechargeables charge (assuming they arent bad)

Was given a original xbox but wont work? I dont have manual, have hit reset, the button or light flasing on front? a page come up with a 06 in left corner, and lots of different language on screen?


Hi,

error Code 05/06 is usually Hard-Drive related.
The drive has been left unlocked, or shutdown powered off while a game-save is in progress.
The xbox only boots with the Hard-drive is locked, Otherwise it will Frag ( red/Green on startup )

Flase red light when turn on


Looks like the fall damaged the unit. Try turning it in for warranty. Off course don't mention the falling. Just tell them the yellow light appeared out of nowhere.

It's still risky though, if Sony suspects something happened to it before this problem they will probably not trade the unit or let you pay for a new one.

Greetings,
