    Well obviously its the red ring of death, I fix them. But this one, when turned on just shows the red lights, the fan doesn't come on and nothing heats up inside, without it heating up i can't fix it like normal. I need to know why?

    It's not the power brick either, because I use it for my main xbox 360 and it works just fine.

    Well Obviously whoever wrote not to open the xbox 360 did read my entire problem, as I mentioned I fix them, so of course I will open it Duh!!!

I have a Plasma TV with black screen and 6 red light flashes.


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

It works intermittenly


3) The LED turns on or flashes red during initial boot up :
When the temperature inside the car is too high or too low, the red LED flashes. In this case,
follow the steps below.
Turn the product power off and ventilate the car to return to normal ambient temperature.
Turn the power on after a little while and observe the LED color.
If the red LED still flashes under normal temperature, contact customer service.

My playstation has the light trun green yellow flashing red light


With your PS3 turned off, press and hold the Power button on the front of the PS3 for about 10 seconds (the system will beep as normal as it starts up but after 7-10 seconds it will beep again). The video settings should now be reverted. Doing this will also reset any theme settings. try this? seems to fix alot of issues.

Philips 42pf7621d/10 dead


One of the circuit boards should be replaced inside, probably the power supply, the good thing is that screen is ok and it's a most expansive part, you can take it to the local repair shop for diagnostic and repair.

Warning lights


Just so you know guys (and this procedure is not for the faint hearted!). I had the slow one second red warning light flash. I checked the bulb, which was find and I left it powered off for 48 hours. My projector is no longer under warranty and would have cost me over £300 to have it looked at. I ventured inside to inspect the boards, once I removed the main board to check the power supply I heard movement from one of the light ducts. It took me a while to removed enough to discover the fixing screw which holds the imaging cube in place (which is between the 3 light ducts and the projector lens) had come out (!?) and was rolling around inside the unit. This would also explain why sometimes I could not focus my unit properly. I remounted the imaging cube, put the whole thing back together and PRESTO! My projector is working again.

360 issues


Two Red Lights

The two left quadrants of the Ring of Light flash red on the front of the Xbox 360 console
This behavior occurs when the internal temperature of the console exceeds the acceptable limits. You may think of this as too hot, overheating, and so on. Make sure the fans are operating and the system has adequate ventilation.

Since you've been inside it's possible that a heatsink or some other part of the cooling system is not working properly or is loose. Check all these!

Good Luck!
