Why can't I re-new playstation plus? keeps saying wrong address


My only thought would be, make sure you are using the correct account that was used when purchasing "Plus". Some people have several different profiles on one system, and can get confused about witch one was used to purchase things from the PS store. ^^

Bought new controller but it wont turn on the system when I press the PS button?


Ok first of all you need to pair it with your system by plugging it in manually through the usb cord. After that it should be ready to go now you can turn it on or off with the PS button.

My super nintendo has no sound and I replaced the sound module and still no sound please help !!


Make sure you are using all licensed accessories with your system. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible with Nintendo systems and may not work correctly.
Check your system connections to ensure they are firm and correct.
Remove and reload the Game Pak, pressing firmly to ensure it is locked in place.
Many Game Paks have an option that controls one or more volume variables. These may have been set to maximum volume during the manufacturing or testing process. Consult the game manual for directions on how to adjust the settings. You can usually get to them by going into the Options screen.
Remove the AV cables and reinsert them with a slight twisting motion. Make sure the Video Cable (the yellow plug) is in the video input. Plugging it into an audio input will cause buzzing. Also, make sure none of your audio (red) cables, are plugged into a phono jack on your stereo, which can also cause buzzing. Finally, make sure the Stereo AV Cable is plugged into input ports, not output ports. For a detailed review of the hookup, please check our hookup instructions.
Some TVs or VCRs may have special Audio Inputs that don't allow the volume to be controlled by the TV. They are intended to be controlled by a different device, such as a home theater amplifier. Check your manual for the TV or VCR to see if this is the case for your unit.
Some TV and VCRs have a small switch, usually found near the AV inputs, that is used to allow components to send sound out to the TV speakers. Check your manual for the TV or VCR to see if this is the case for your unit.
If you are using the Stereo AV cable for your hookup, remove the plugs and reinsert them with a slight twisting motion. Make sure that you are plugging the yellow cable into the video input, and that the audio cables (red and/or white) are plugged into the audio input jacks on your TV or VCR.
If you only have one audio input, and one plug is hanging, that will result in a loss of sound. Either purchase a Y-adapter or access the game's option menu, and when available, set the game sound option to Mono.
There may be a problem in one of your hookup cables and not your system. Try purchasing a new connection cable (where to buy). You can also try borrowing the cable from a friend to see if it solves your problem before purchasing a new item.

RF Hookups
Make sure you are using all licensed accessories with your system. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible with Nintendo systems and may not work correctly.
Check your system connections to ensure they are firm and correct.
Remove and reload the Game Pak, pressing firmly to ensure it is locked in place.
Many Game Paks have an option that controls one or more volume variables. These may have been set to maximum volume during the manufacturing or testing process. Consult the game manual for directions on how to adjust the settings. You can usually get to them by going into the Options screen.
Try switching both the TV and RF Modulator to a different channel (3 or 4). Try adjusting the Fine Tuning control on your TV to see if it clears up the sound. A particularly strong TV station (or cable TV) signal may be broadcasting on Channel 3 or 4 in the area, causing interference. For a detailed review of the hookup, please check our hookup instructions.
Try disconnecting the antenna/cable wire from the RF Switch. (You will have to reconnect it again for regular TV viewing.) If this option works, an AB Box may be needed. These can be purchased at various home electronic stores.

We moved to USA from Europe, our wii can't read game here, different zone. What to solve the problem


If your WII was purchased in Europe, then the entire system is completely different from the games in USA.

Your WII, assuming it was purchased in Europe, is pre-set for the PAL video format. This can't be changed, at least not easily. You'll be better off finding a new WII designed for NTSC here in USA for the games to work.

Otherwise, you'll need to stick with the games you already have that work.

My ps3 wont play games or vedios anymore


Ok. This problem is usually a result of the console overheating. What you can do is check a few things before making any decisions. Firstly listen to hear if the games are spinning when in the system. If it is not try unplugging the unit and connections including power supply for 10 minutes and reinstall.

If this still doesnt work the motor is damaged or broken due to the overheat. You will have to have it repaired by Sony. Do not attempt to repair it yourself or you would void any warranty if you have any.

If you have a warranty Sony will repair it for free or send you a voucher to purchase a new one free to you.

If you have to purchase a new ps3 i recommend buying a cooling system or fan to keep near the ps3 to avoid overheating. Also keep the ps3 in an area that has good ventalation.

The number for sony is listed in your owners manual and also on the back of the ps3 video games.

I hope I was able to fixya problems and Happy Gaming.

Power won't stay on flashing red light


what system is this? My gamecube had a problem. Turning out to be a wacky solution, was our plug in controller making the system act up! We had some that were wireless and we could ust the system no prblem with those, but the normal wired one would only flash lights and then turn off completely. Try unplugging all cords, and plugging back in after a few minutes. For some reason this fixes problems. If it doe not work for you, try the manual if you still have it. All manuals for video game systems should be available on the company's website as well as their customer service contact phone numbers to talk to tech support. I hope one of these options works for you! :)

Nintendo DS message... "Unable to load data. Turn the power off and resinsert the Game Card."


Well maybe when you turn it on, it might be on manual mode. To switch it to auto mode, Press options then press the wrench and then find auto or manual mode and then, switch it to auto mode. Save the options and then it should play the game. If it doesn't work, blow into the DS game and then the DS game slot.
