Red blinking light on playstation 3

Here is some info that I think will help you solve your problem:

PRLog (Press Release) - Jan 27, 2010 -
If you are dealing with the PS3 red flashing light problem, you are likely wondering if there is really an affordable solution out there. If you have heard that Sony charges a minimum of $150 to fix the problem or have called them yourself and discovered this charge, you are likely on the verge of tossing your unit out with the trash.

Don't do it!

You can fix PS3 red flashing light problems and it doesn't have to cost that much. You may have paid hundreds of dollars for your gaming system, but there is absolutely no reason you should have to pay that much again just to keep it functional!

It's true that the systems should be functioning better than this, but you can't change that right now. What you can change is how you fix the PS3 red blinking light problem and how much money you save doing it.

You essentially need to go through two steps to fix the problem: analyze potential causes and find a step by step complete guide from good ylod fixer sites like

Potential PS3 Red Flashing Light Causes

In most cases, PS3 yellow and red light flashes are caused by damage to internal components such as the motherboard. Overheating tends to be the most common issue, but there are some other small little reasons.

You can pretty much narrow it down to overheating if you noticed your console sounding louder while in use prior to the red flashing light issues or if you regularly noticed that it felt very warm or even hot. Also, if you have your console flat down on the floor or up against the wall chances are high that overheating is the issue, since the vents are blocked off in this position and ventilation suffers.

Finally, if you notice a bunch of dust collecting on the console and in the vent, that can block off ventilation as well and lead to overheating when the console is in use.

Another possible cause of red lights flash is damage to the hard drive. If you can replace the hard drive with someone else's which you know works and the problem is not fixed, then you know that is not the issue.

PS3 Red Flashing Light Fixes

Once you have a pretty good idea of whether the problem may be caused by internal damage or the hard drive, you can weigh your options for fixing the red flashing light issue of your ps3.

The hard drive can simply be replaced if you think it is that, but in most cases you will need to either send your console in for a fix by Sony (last for 6 weeks) or use a reliable online program to fix the problem on your own.

There are several advantages to doing the repairs yourself with an online program:
1. The program is available for immediate download.
2. The program will cost a small fraction of what Sony will charge you.
3. You will have everything you need to fix other possible PS3 problems in the future.

The trick is to find a program that gives substantial assistance and customer service and which gives information for fixing other PS3 problems like red screen showing up, complete freezing problem etc apart from just the red lights flashing problem.

Good programs not only teach you how to troubleshoot your PS3 and repair all the yellow and red lights blinking issues, they also update you all the necessary improvement on your Ps3, which will make your system more functional when you get it up and running again.

On the other hand, is a great starting point to research free movies, games, eBook heaps of different apps for your iPad. This is the largest database system on the internet, so you will stumble on here all of the most recent device for accessing the biggest file network on the planet. It will proffer you with little by little instruction, software and 24/7 technical support in which you can make inquiries if you have any problems.

My x-box360 won't work the red light comes on but

OK, I'm assuming your console has 3 flashing red lights, if that is the case there's not much you can do for the Xbox, 3 flashing red lights is a problem with the mother board in your console, now there is a temporary fix you could perform your self but that doesn't always work, its a 50/50 chance, personally id play it safe on this one and check to see if your warranty is still good, if so all you have to do is contact Microsoft and explain to them about your red lights, they'll then ask you to plug out everything and plug it back in, when that fails to work they will send you out tags in your e-mail, once you receive the tags stick them to the box that contains your console and await collection. It usually takes up to 5-7 weeks before your u get your console back.

Three Red Lights/Ring of death.

Free fixes? Impossible.

What causes the ROD is a loose processor. You can buy a better part and install it. I believe there should be a YouTube Video on this. There should be parts on eBay.

I hope this helped.
