This signals hardware failure, and you need to call microsoft and have them send you a box to ship the 360 in so they can fix it. if it's still under warranty, it should be free.

.ukmy ps3 cuts off when


Hello there smithy

If you have the red blinking light then you have the RED light of death AKA the RLOD.

The light is a warning sign to let you know something is wrong. I can give you the quick explanation, There are 2 chips on the motherboard inside the PS3, the GPU (graphics) and the CPU (brain), when playing the ps3 the solder heats up and when you finish playing it cools down, over time this will cause the soldering to crack and the chips to lose connection with the motherboard and you get the RLOD.

WHERE TO GO FROM HERE

Option 1 - Call Sony

In warranty the Price is Free, out of warranty the Price is $150, the whole process is 4-6 weeks

You can call Sony and they will collect the PS3, repair/replace, and deliver the PS3 back to you

Option 2 - Fix it your Self

You can use a PS3 fix manual to get this fixed easily and at home using household tools you probably already own.

Good luck

Best regards

The red light is blinking and when i turn it on it goes to green for a few seconds and then beeps and blinks red again.


You have "The red ring of death" If 1 corner is blinking: Turn it of and wait a few days for it to cool off. If 2 corners are blinking: Do the same, but check after 3-5 days to see if it works. If 3 corners are blinking: You HAVE to see a xbox repairer, because you can't wait after 3 rings. Saddly, a complete ring of red: You can't do anything about it, it can't be repaired, but check the power wire and reattach it, there's a little glitch where if you loosen the wire, it does that. Good luck!

When I play the Full Version of Gran Turismo 5, after 30 mins, the con sole beeps 3 time, then shuts down, if i play other game this never happen , only with Gran Turismo 5 did I encounter this, what does...


Sometime this can be a over heating problem especially with the fat ps3's and if you leave it off for a while and re-locate it somewhere where it can breath it can be ok. It's also a good idea to clean your ps3 to get rid of dust build up to help with cooling. Worse case scenario this could be a lead up to the YLOD problem.

--YLOD--
LEDs at the front of the console when attempted to turn on goes green, then yellow, back to green, then beeps three times and blinks red. This then causes a PS3 to be unusable and is effectively dead.

Do what i mentioned above with cleaning and put in an open space then run a different game for atleast 45mins see how you go.

If the game runs ok put in gran turismo 5 and play again. Let me know how you get on :)

Thanks.

The red rings will pop up then they will go away


the three red lights mean the cpu has come loose from the board because of the way they bake it on. the cpu heats and cooks it off the board and the board sometimes flexes with excessive heat once turned off it cools down and connects wth the board again

Outer ring of the xbox 360 is blinking red


this is a similar fault to he dreaded 3rrod, the mainboard warps with the heat generated whilst playing the console and it cracks the lead free solder. what you need to do is something called a reflow, strip down the machine and get the mainboard itself. either use a hot air gun (paint stripper) or something called a reflow station (what i use). you then need to go over every part of the mainboard with the heat for about 5 mins each side paying particular attention to the part of the board near the a/v output. look for something called the ANA chip and put the heat onto this in a circular motion for 20 seconds.
reflow also the gpu and lan areas and you should see some improvement.

we can do all this for you and we also change the x-clamps and use team-xecuter parts. we can get consoles working again for only £40 which includes return delivery to your door.
