PLAYSTATION3 80 GB has lights flashing:green,yellow,green then flashing red.had a dvd disk that would not eject.i took it apart and removed disk.the dvd had some damage in one will no

Hi there James
it seems to me like you have the yellow light of death, but don't worry this is something that can be fixed.
You have two options here
Option1 you can send the console to SONY for $150, they will send you a refurbished model oh and all data may be lost. The whole process usually takes about 4-6 weeks.
Option 2You can fix the problem at home with a PS3 repair guide worth only $40 a 3rd of the cost of sony, the ps3 will be fixed within the next hour or 2.
Hope this helps

When turing on xbox 360 green rigsflash as normal but the power sign flashes and never stays solid diskdrive dosnt open ethier what has happend any ideas on how to fix

Have you taken it apart before? If so make sure your disc drive is connected properly to the motherboard if its not then the middle light will flash. Also if you bought it that way it probably means your disc drive motherboard is fried. Its the board under the disc drive screwed down. Hopefully its just not connected though.

My xbox wont read xbox games but plays dvd`s,ive replaced disc drive and done the xclamp procedure.any ideas how i can fix this??

Since you've already replaced the drive and done the other procedure, you're best bet is to get in touch with xbox directly as it may be a software issue now. 1-800-4MY-XBOX

if you are still in the year warranty microsoft will repair free,if not its £81 for them to fix.Its an easy fix if you want to do yourself,the thermal paste in between the heatsinks and chip needs replacing,look on youtube and you will find loads of vids on how to open console,you will also need an xclamp kit,you can buy for £2 on ebay(make sure you buy one with nylon washers and themal paste),then take heatsinks off and clean chips and bottom of heatsinks and replace with new paste,then either use original xclamps(i never do,i use xclamp kit,it makes job a lot easier)or use bolts and washers that you get with kit,and within an hour you'll have a working xbox,you can also veiw vids on youtube how to change xclamps and clean off old paste.It might look a bit tricky but its as easy as changing a fuse in a plug,just on a bigger scale

Solid red light, flashes green when i turn it on then it dies.

Pretty much the only thing worth trying is starting the PS3 without the hard drive.

If it doesn't work it's more than likely a GPU problem that only Sony can fix.

Either way check out my guide here for tips and details.

Please feel free to email me any other questions and please don't forget to rate!

Flashing and freezing

Xclamp fix will usually do it, or your laser is going in the dvd drive, also try cleaning out your cache on you hard drive. Problems mostly are over heating issues, most I have fixed have a cup of dust in the, everything plugged up with no air flow for cooling.

Xbox 360 samsung m25 game fault

It's Not The dvd drive key otherwise you'd get the three red light lights. It's most probably a bad firmware flash try and reflash it to the original firmware with the same dvd drive key and see if that works.
