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.

How do I synce wii remotes


instructions
  1. You will first need to make sure your Wii remotes have batteries. Then, turn on your Wii and go to the Wii menu.

  2. Open the little white door on the front of the Wii game console (this may require using your fingernail). You will notice a little rectangular red button.

  3. Open the battery compartment of your Wii controller, which may require removing the rubber jacket. You will notice a little round red button there.

  4. Press and hold the red button on the Wii game system and the red button on the Wii remote at the same time for at least 2 seconds. I usually hold down the remote button, then press the game console button for 2 seconds because it is easier for me. You will notice the 4 little blue lights on the front of the controller blink many times. The lights will eventually stop blinking and one of the four lights will remain on. The light that remains on tells which number Wii remote you have. The one on the left is number 1. The second from the left is number 2, etc.
***
If you bring your remotes to a friend's house to play, don't forget to sync your remotes back to your Wii console when you get home.


All the best!

Hi,my xbox360 won't read pirate some pirate games,why?


First off I'd like to mention that what I post here does not condone piracy, merely reiterating information widely available already on the internet.

First off, your Xbox360 will not read pirated/backed up games if you have no made any modifications to it. Secondly, if your Xbox360 was bought in 2005 and you have not updated it to play on Xbox live, do not follow my advice here, look up the JTAG hack on google. This is more complex but it lets you do much much more with your Xbox360 and in a sense 'jailbreak's' it.

Regardless of what Xbox360 you have (old, 'slim', updated or not), you can enable it to play pirated/backed up games by flashing the DVD drive firmware with a custom firmware, the latest being the ixtreme LT+, with a software utility called Jungle Flasher. Do do this you need a computer with SATA capability and you need to take apart your XBOX. There are many good tutorials freely available online (best ones are from ixtreme.net) and there is enough info above to get you started.

If you are not comfortable with computers and/or taking apart your 360, I would not attempt any of this.

p.s. The latest ixtreme firmware does let you play your game copies on XboxLive without the risk of being banned, even when playing the latest 'protected' discs.

p.p.s I would also like to mention that while you may have purchased an Xbox360, in the U.S.A. you do not own the full rights to do whatever you want with that device (current exceptions only being made for mobile phones). So if you live there, customizing your Xbox360 in whatever way you see fit is illegal until further changes are made the DMCA.

Ps3 console dosn,t turn on green light comes on for a second goes yellow beeps the flashes red cant even get disk out


Hello,

Thanks for using FixYa.

The problem that you are experiencing is called "The yellow light of Death" much like the "Three Red Light of Death" for the XBOX360.

If you see the yellow light blink, that means there is a general hardware failure. you need to contact sony for that because there is not much that we can do about it on our end. You don't really want to open up your ps3 and ending up butchering it. You'd rather want to just tell sony whats going on and have a deal with them. Just don't tell them that:

1. The PS3 might have overheated
2. You modded your PS3 or installed unauthorized software (hacks)

Just tell that that your PS3 suddenly quit working. If you still have warranty, you are in great shape. You won't be playing games for days though. Sorry man.

I hope this helps. Have a nice day. Happy new year!

One flashing red light on xbox360 ( not red ring)


The specific type of hardware failure can be determined by a "hidden" error code
Turn the xbox 360 on, and wait till the 3 red lights are flashing.
Press and hold the sync up button (the small white one), while holding that button press the eject button.
The LEDs will now blink the first number in the code (as described below).
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the second number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the third number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the forth number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will go back to the 3 red flashing lights.
You should be able to determine the difference between the 3 flashing lights and the error code lights by the rate in which they flash.
Here is how you interpret the LEDs to get the code number:
All four lights flashing - 0
One light flashing - 1
Two Lights flashing - 2
Three lights flashing - 3

Once you get this code, go to: http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=484726
To get the reason for the code.

I have a playstation 2 and we purchased the game Nicktoons Unite and it will not play because it's looking for an eye toy. Is there a way to play the game without the eye toy?


Simple answer is no, the game obviously requires motion sensing to be able to play, just as singstar uses microphones to play, you can sometimes rent the eyetoy in some shops like choices and blockbuster but if not ebay is your best option for a cheap deal,

Hope this helps, ****.

Ps2 to a pc


sure it is, just get a video convertor cable they sell them at most best buys or ebay dealers

just look for VGA for xbox360, the only problem is the audio, you need a Y cable - RCA cable type, most best buys have them or your local game stop. the resolution wont be great though not like on a TV or a HDTV
