When playing Halo Reach online I cant hear any friends in custom playlist. This is both in game and in lobby. If we join a chat party then we can hear each other fine though. When in matchmaking I can hear...


Depending on which type of chat session you are connected to... everyone needs to be in the same chat menu. Sometimes when switching from game chat to party chat you might still be stuck in game chat while others are in private chat or visa versa.

To talk to only players in your game: Press the Guide button, then select Party, Party Options, Chat Channel, and Game Chat.

To talk to only members of the party: Press the Guide button, then select Party, Party Options, Chat Channel, and Party Chat.

To mute an individual: Press the Guide button, then select Party, the player's gamertag, and Mute.

It is a possibility that you are not in the same chat session with your friends. they might be in a party chat with others while you are in game chat. (note you can only have a max of 8 people in one party chat) Or you might still be in a party chat (that everyone else has left) and they are in game chat.

My ps3 hangs and then shuts down with a blinking red light. It does this in the hard drive format screen(the one you reach after 2 beeps) as well. So I don't know what the problem is, can anyone help?


It sounds like its a overheating issue or a bad HDD. Make sure that the console is in a well ventilated area and not confined area. Let me know if you have more info so I can help further. We can start a live chat also as I am a premium expert.

We were in contact yesterday but i had to break contact and we still have not reached a solution? Please advise? Thanks Huw D Jones


Hi Huw,

If your problem was unresolved, you can re-open the chat session - possibly with eske if he is available or with another expert if he is not. There is no additional charge for doing this - you only pay when the problem is solved and it does not matter if you previously accepted the solution.

I'm not 100% sure how you do this, but the first step is to visit your user area:

http://www.fixya.com/users/huw777

On the right hand side of your user page you will see your list of "Problems", one of which will be the live chat with eske. If you click on that problem from the list, you should get a transcript of the session and on the transcript page (or on your user page) there will be an option to reconnect to an expert or seek further assistance. See if you can find this. If not post back here and I will try to provide better instruction.

In addition, you should also email FixYa support and request a refund of the fee you have paid to post this message. Please quote problem/solution reference 7303110 in your email:

premium.support@fixya.com

You should not need to pay to find out how to have your original problem solved and you should not pay for the problem until it has been solved.

I hope this makes sense. Please let me know that you have been able to find out how to reconnect your original live chat session.

Regards,
BElectric

My wii will not read any games and I can not afford 85 dollars to send it to be fixed, I am not a electronic expert but is there a way I can fix this myself?


This is usually a problem with either the laser inside of the Wii's drive, or some other issue going on inside of the DVD drive. The following website sells the DVD drive mechanisms and does repairs on the Wii as well:

Me first


To get in on Chats its a luck of the draw once you are qualified to receive them. A lot of us believe there hare some experts that have usurped the system in some manner but no one's figured that out yet. So, its really a matter of luck and where you are on the Intenet Trunk. I know a few who are on a T-3 and they still don't get in on Chats that easily. A whole lot depends on your ISPs server and traffic burden..

For Tips and Tricks you want to find a problem area we get a lot of hits on that you have some knowledge with. It takes a lot of poking around in the history list of unanswered questions and you'll stumble upon a particular question that many others have ticked the button that they have the same problem. There are a lot of those in the system. Once you have a hot topic and can write a working solution for it that all will respond to, post the link to your tip to all those users so they get to your tip rather than respond to a solution. In a Tip they can either vote Helpful or Not. This equates to
FixYas and TFT, no chance for an IA.Given that option most people vote Helpful and you get another FixYa. And these votes off Tips used to generate a lot of bumps in your profile.

I think the Staff have turned that feature off for now as it was really getting abused by buddies collaborating between themselves to bump each other's profile by voting up via Tips. Once they have that under control, soon I suspect, then voting off Tips will return to your over all count.

Once that's back in play again, that's one way to get you score up. There have been so many people banned in the last few months its laughable. Now that staff have scripts they can run and find unlocked FixYa votes there will be more and more scammers gone. That is good for the honest expert.

For more on Tips if you haven't seen this already you can read my Tip on writing tips.

http://www.fixya.com/support/r1203288-tips_tricks_write_post

To be fair Scott Ellin wrote a quick and dirty method that works quite well. I just went into much more detail, that's all. He had asked me how to write a tip and I wrote this Tip above on his request. Then he wrote a short version which is fine by me. I usually write very long instructive solutions. That's probably because I taught Information Systems and Technology in College and had to write lectures.

Good Luck, nice to meet you.

Xbox Live Chat don't work properly


I don't think you should hear people not in your private chat at all. Make sure you are signed into the private chat and not the game chat. Push the center button on the controller and go to chat. If you already tried this I don't know what else could be the problem. Sorry.

Xbox Chat doesn't work properly..


If you are in a private chat, the only person you will hear is the person in the chat with you. You will not hear anyone else and nobody else will hear you.
