Re: red lights

One of the ways to correct for the failed solder connections and to reball a device is to use the EZReball soldering preform . These are pretty easy to use as seen by the demo video here

Re: red lights

I think you need to explain a little more. Topic header is 'Red Lights' your explanation is '**** graphics' If you have red lights then this generally means the 360 doesn't work, I'm not sure how you can have both red lights and **** graphics!?

I was playing cod online and it just turned its self of now in wont turn on i cant even eject my game i has a constant red light flashing?

Hello there andrew

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.


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

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.

I have four flashing red lights around the on button. plus it wont play games or dvds


this is Possibly the A/V cable outlet. Ensure it,s inserted into The Console Correctly. And Set Properley. ( TV/HDMI ) Which ever applicable. Remove the A/V Cable To TV. Remove from The TV Set. And power On, see if theres Any Difference.
IF Not The Graphics Scaler Chip, May Have Burnt out.

Hope This Helps Mike @ Compurepair.

My controllers wont connect to my play station while i have the black screen of death

Sounds like a graphic chip solder problem. You need and infra red BGA reflow of the solder on the graphics chip.

well your graphics card is getting hot you need to do something or you will be the next one with the red ,green and yellow lights of dead
I recommend to use a cooling device and make sure you unit has a good space to dissipate heat from the back of the unit and from the right side
