Re: red light

The modem doesn't really have anything to do with the 360, it's a separate issue. If the console is freezing and giving you red lights then that's different altogether, please explain with a little more detail and I'll try to help you further!

Hi.when i turn on my ps3 it freezes at the main screen.please say i dont have to buy a new 1,i dont have the money. :(

Ok, if it is simply the image that is freezing and it is still staying on then there is hope for the PS3.
If however it is turning off with 3 beeps and flashing the red light then that is serious.

Please try the following if it is just the display freezing :

Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later and then beep one more time and turn off into standby mode (red light on)

Release the power button

Press and hold the power button again. It will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later and this time there will be 2 quick beeps together. Release the power button when you hear these 2 quick beeps.

The PS3 will start up asking you to connect the controller via USB and press the PS button. Do this and then continue.

After doing the above a menu will load with 6 options. Choose option 3 "Restore File System". This will re-install the PS3 software if it has become corrupt. Ignore any messages about corrupt hard drive, this is normal. If this step does not work try the above again but select option 4, then 5 if that doesn't work.

One of these options should get your PS3 up and running again.

One red light and slow loading

The clean disk and the "one red light" are 2 different things. You are batteling heat my friend. Unfortunately, your freezing is not a good sign if your "one red light" displays "E74" on the bottom of the screen. There are a gazillioin different methods of doing an xclamp replacement. Thats what you need.

As far as the disk read, you probably just need a cleaning. since you'll already be inside that ******, open up your dvd drive (4-6 phillips screws) and give it a good alcohol shalackin' too!

NOTE: There is probably someone on your local craigslist or used game/videop store that can repair it for you. By the time you buy all of the hardware and materials to do it "right", you might as well just pay someone that will do it for you. (don't pay more than $40.00 and look into getting a new one)

Xbox 360 wont load to main menu. No red ring.

This is the problem with the GPU, Just fixed on the other day with the same problem. best way to fix it is with a heatgun and an xbox360 repair kit. The same kit for fixing the 3 red lights and E74 problems.

You can get the kit here.

My 360 keeps freezing

No red lights? Do you have your system properly vented? If you own an older system you may want to consider purchasing a cooling fan. Also some games are known to have a freezing glitch "Ex: Rainbow 6 vegas 1" If the games are freezing all the time after just 10 minutes that sounds like something you may want to contact Microsoft about repairing

Xbox 360 Freeze!!

It's a common fault with X boxes, the red lights indicate overheating, so make sure it is well ventillated and if neccasary you can purchase an add on cooler for the system.
