    When I try to turn my Playstation 3 on, it almost immediately goes back to standby.

    An orange light very briefly shows before a red light starts to blink.

I have a problem with my sony play station I had this problem for months When I turned on the ps2 it shuts down itself,I can reset it and i start playing but then again it turns off itself,Sometimes i...


The PS2 shuts off automatically when acquiring heat, it might have been cutting off due to excessive heat or overheating. If the system does not power on, well the internal power supply unit might have gone busted and generally a hardware failure causing this issue.

Playstation 3 power issue


Your system has overheated. If it doesn't get on at all anymore, you should get it fixed in the place you bought it from. That happened to me.

My xbox turns itself off after around 10-15 mins


This is most likely a over heating issue of the cpu.If you are familiar with electronics you can try to open the case and remove the covers from the cpu and the other ic's.clean the old thermal paste from the cpu and the cover and apply a new layer of high quality thermal paste.This sometimes elevates the overheating problem.(CAUTION) only due this if your warranty is over because this will void any warranty.

My powerbrick lightis orange but my xbox360 wont turn on


If the light on the power brick stays orange after turning the console on it means the brick is not properly functioning. You can attempt to clean the power brick with a can of air. Also make sure it has ventilation and is not sitting on carpet. This can cause the power brick itself to overheat and cause issues with it and the console itself. Also make sure your 360 is not plugger into a surge suppressor as this can cause issue due to double protection.
If possible, test the power brick on a different console, and test the console on a different power brick. This will narrow down your problem area.

My Ps3 constantly shuts off after only a few mintues or seconds of gameplay... I have the first edition, got it the first month it came out. Almost immediately after starting a game the whole system shuts...


Can you hear the fans running? Does the unit appear to be full of dust? If the system is overheating due to clogged vents, then the system will shut itself down so nothing else gets damaged. I would first make sure the fan is running when turned. If so I would try to vacuum out the vent holes on the entire unit (if its extremely bad, then the unit might need to be disassembled). You can also try blowing it out with some can air or a compressor, but be careful not to blow directly into the cd drive as it might damage the laser.

On switch button turns green and immediatley turns off again. My disc in the beggining stoped spinning eventhough i can here it trying to spin


Can you hear the fan spinning on the inside of the PS2? If the PS2 comes on, loads the disc, then shuts itself off, chances are it is overheating and shuts off to prevent damage. There is a small fan on the inside of the Slim PS2 that keeps it cool.

If you press the reset switch and it goes from red to green and immediately back to red without ever turning on, your motherboard is shot. ESD damage.

I switch my ps3 on and start to play a game and then sfter about 10 mins it switces itself off and a red light flashes, then the same happens again after i switch it on. could it be overheated?


sure, it can. try cleaning your coolers : turn the on off switch behind the console OFF, then hold the eject button and , HOLDING THE EJECT BUTTON,switch the on off key ON (behind the system). it will clean your coolers.

Xbox 360 Blurry/Fuzzy Screen


The machine is overheating and the graphics chip on the main board is acting up cause of it. Make sure there is no dust or dirt blocking the air vents that would cause the system to heat up more then normal.

If that doesn't do it then maybe think about getting a cooler for the system, here is a website that talks about a few of them. Click here.

If that doesn't help then your mainboard is going bad and would need to be replaced.

Most likely, your system is overheating. Make sure you have several inches of space all the way around your system (except of course underneath it) and that it's not in an enclosed space. The system will shut itself off to keep from breaking. Good luck!

Hey jfresh,


Make sure you have your component cable set to the correct setting. On the actual cable itself, you'll see a little box that has a switch. It's like this normal <<------------>> HD

make sure it's set to the correct side. If you do not have HD, it will not turn on, but you'll hear the audio.
