Hi scara_manga,
Not good news unfortunately. That red light that comes on is also known as "the ring of death".
there is only one way i know of correcting this situation.
as weird as it sounds
you need to overheat the xbox 360 in order to get it working correctly again. i know this as i have one myself and been in the same situation.
you need to switch the console on then wrap a towel around it and leave it for approx 30mins.
this should return it to its correct working order.

Hope this has helped :)

Your xbox 360 has overheated. It is called the red rings of death. It can be fixed from a shop and has been internally damaged inside. If you have warranty it can be fixed for free, otherwise it can be taken to a shop and fixed in the UK for around £35-£50 GBP. Hope this helps.

Thanks

My PS3 80Gb shows the red standby light as normal. When I push the power button, I hear one beep, as the light go from red, to green, to off, and then finally back to red again. If I push the eject button...


Does the lights blink red? If so, You have the infamous YLOD, aka. Yellow Light of Death. This is the number 1 cause of pS3's dying. It is an overheating issue linked to your CPU and GPU (the processor chips) You will need to find a local PS3 repair shop who can repair this. Do not try to attempt repairs seen on the internet yourself as some would suggest.You could make things much worse and render the unit totally unresponsive. The repair process takes about 3 hours.



IT CAN BE FIXED*





IS THERE A DISC STUCK INSIDE?



If you have a unit that is not backwards compatible, any non 60g or 80g then you can retrieve your disc.



Power off the unit using the toggle switch on the back. Hold down the 'eject' button and turn the toggle switch back from off to on. This will run a fan test and eject your disc. Remember, this will only work on the 20, 40g models. Not the backwards compatible units with the 4 usb port holes and the memory card slots.



You will have to have the system repaired so that you can eject the disc the normal way. If the technician cannot repair your system, simply ask him to remove your disc.

There is a disc in my ps3 however it won't eject. It flashes red light when I try to remove. I have tried to hold down eject for 10 secs however this step is not working for me. Any ideas? I would...


Please try the following to remove your disc :

Turn the PS3 off completely

Hold the eject button.

While holding the eject button turn the PS3 on at the back.

This method should make the PS3 force eject the disc. Don't worry about the fan going really fast, this is normal.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Red light flashes when turned on, cant even eject disc


Try to do these 3 things.1 - Restart your console.
2 - Take out all cables, and plug them back in.
3 - Take out the hard-drive, and place it back in your PS3 console.

Try this to take the disc out:
1. turn the PS3 off from the back
2. Put a finger on eject button
3. then turn PS3 on from back with finger still on eject button
4. disk should come out

40g ps3 suddenly stopped mid game, won't eject disc, red light ON, turns green and blue for a moment (when pressed), then yellow light where green is, hums a little bit like the motor wanted to eject but...


I think that u just didn't dust it off enough and the fans could no circulate the hot air well enough and the system ended up damaging its self.

You can go to www.us.playstation.com Click on PlayStation 3<support<Service. The service link can be found in the bottom right hand corner. Just fill out a service report form and then they will ship you a box for you to re-ship your system into for repairs.

Note: If your PS3 is out of warranty you will have to pay $149 for this service with a credit card.

Turn off your PS3 entirely. Then, flip the backswitch and Eject button at the same time. The cooling fans will start to blow at max capacity to blow out all the interior dust. even ejects discs
