When the lights blink it generally means that the xbox controller is losing power. try charging it or replacing the batteries

When I turn on my ps3 model cechg01, it blinks the green light a couple times then shuts itself off. No other color lights just the green one, then beeps three times and shuts off.. Can anybody help narrow...


When you plug in your system with the power cable and turn the toggle switch (in the back) do you see the red stand by light?

The red and yellow light comes from 1 bulb and the green and blu light comes from another..

If you have the YLOD and your yellow/red light is out, you will only see the green light.

I am really interested in your problem.

Do this to check your status: If you can do this function below but not any other, chances are, you do have the YLOD. It can be fixed.

Power off the unit using the toggle switch on the back. Hold down the 'eject' button and turn the toggle switch back from off to on. This will run a fan test and should eject your disc. Remember, this will only work on the 20, 40g models. Not the backwards compatible units with the 4 usb port holes and the memory card slots.

We can not connect the controlers to the xbox 360 but they will connect to others can you help with this problem??? we recently got it fixed because it had a red ring


Turn your system on and turn the controllers on, when the controllers are blinking the four green lights, press the small white button to the right of the second memory card slot. The 4 green rings around the power button with rotate clockwise. Now press the small white button next to the left bumper on the controller. Both the system rings and the ones on the controller will blink in unison and that controller will be connected to that system. Repeat for as many controllers as you have. Hope this helps.

Orange LED indicator on the "Power Ring"


From the sounds of things you have a bad RF Board. This is the board that controls the syncing of your controllers, as well as your ring of light. If there is someone in your area that fixes the RROD they may be able to replace your RF board as well. I'd be happy to do it, but shipping would be almost the same cost as the repair. Contact me at Jordan@jordanselectronics.com for more info.

Have sound no picture and 2 green rings around power button


They are green?!? usualy when people have problems with  the xbox 360 hardware, the lights turn red. This xbox 360 may have a birth defect... Best thing to do is call 1800-4my-xbox. Talk to a representative about sending your xbox in, ONLY if you have not voided the warranty. If so, you will most likely have to buy a new xbox or new motherboard for it.
Also try changing your video settings to tv instead of hd, or hd if it is plugged into a hd tv. You might have toggled the HD switch on the video/audio chords.

Turns on but no picture or sound and the machine sounds quiet?


I was having the same problem, and what seemed to fix mine was my hard drive. I keep my 360 on it's side and it [hard drive] was falling out a little. I pushed it back in and that seemed to do the trick. Also, when I fix my red rings, I just turn the console off, unhook EVERYTHING and leave it out for a minute. Then I hook everything back in (power cord, hdmi cable, ethernet cable, and hard drive) and it usually works out ok. I'm not saying that fixes everything, but, it has for me in the past.

Xbox turns on but i have no green lights


What appears to be the problem in my case is that the RF module board in which the power button and the controller sync lies has been damaged. If aboslutely no lights come on when you power on your xbox 360, but it loads like normal, something has fried on the module and needs to be replaced. You can ether contact microsoft about this, or buy one off of ebay and install it yourself or have someone who knows how install it for you. Doing so would void your warrenty of course though.

I keep getting three red rings in the part where it shows how may controllers are playing and i can't get any of my games to play or my controllers to work


Three lights flash red on the Ring of Light (RoL) on the front of your Xbox 360 console. The upper-right quadrant light is the only light that does not flash red. The three flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with your Xbox 360 console.

You can try one or two things.

1. Turn on your xbox and check to see if the power supply light is green. If it is green there is a problem with the system. If it is red it means you should check your connections and restart the xbox.

2. These rings have a tendency of meaning that there is a problem with the system itself. Most companies sell extra insurance to cover this "ROL" Ring of life. You can contact Microsoft by calling them. The number is usually listed on the back of the video game booklets.

I wish you the best and I hope this resolved your problem

Happy Gaming

Wireless controller


I dont know if you have been able to figure out what the proble was with your 360, but the exact SAME thing happened to me. The 360 seems to be working fine, game loads, and both the consoles and the controllers rings lit up green, but then the controllers ring just keeps flashing and the console won't recognize it. I 've tried other controllers and nothing worked and obviously I tried to synch it with the console time and time again. PLEASE HELP!!!
