You can call up microsoft support and they will answer this. its probably a hard drive failure, so i suggest copying your files onto an external hard drive or flash drive, and then format your hard drive. if thyis doesn't work, call up MS.

Jctwhen pressing the play button the light is on red it goes from red to green like it suppose to do ,but whithin 2-3 sec. it shuts itself down back to red and will not play


Unfortunately you have the red light of death (RLOD). Which means your graphics card has overheated. Repairable, but prob won't last. Mine didn't. I'm on my 3rd PS3, thankfully the slimline models don't suffer this problem.
Hope this helps.

My xbox 360 it has the 2 red lights flashing


The two red lights means it's overheated. One let it cool down, don't turn it on until it had good while to cool. Two give your 360 more ventilation room. If that's not enough buy intercooler for it. Remember just give it some room to breath. Get more cool air flowing through it and it should be fine.

PS3 wont work


How long were you playing it? if you were playing for a couple of hours, then it could of just overheated, in which case the ps3 will shut itself off suddenly to keep from damaging something. It should work after about half an hour, adequate time for it to cool down, if not, then you might of damaged something.

As playing Xbox 360 system shuts off two red lights occurs.


Two red lights mean your 360 is over exceeding the inside temperature. Your fan must not be working at all and your 360 is overheating tremendously. That is what I know about the 2 red lights. Im not sure what to tell you to fix this but to just call 18004myxbox.

Plays only one game without problem.


Red means taht your wii is completely shut down

Amber means that it is basically in sleep mode, however if you have it connected to the internet wirelessly it will still get updates while in this mode.

By holding down the power button for 5+ seconds it will go red

Just tapping the power button will make it go Amber (sleep mode).
