If the XBOX 360 is blinking the color RED in three of the four quarter of the ring around the power button, you will have to contact Microsoft for a replacement. This is what is known as "Red Ring of Death." You can find plenty of information on it if you Google it.

Click HERE for a video of the Red Ring of Death.

Click HERE for Microsoft's support system for the XBOX 360 and get in touch with Microsoft to get your replacement started.

It's the ONLY way.

Good luck.

This is a common occuring problem what has happend is you have the ylod better known as the yellow light of death. This means the solder on the motherboard has come loose and won't supply the needed power to keep the system running so you need to either send it in for repair which is $110. It's gone for two weeks then back just as good as new

I have exactly the same problem as ammcgee What we can do? By ammcgee7 on Apr 20, 2011 My Nyko Wand for Wii will not sync properly. The two bottom lights for stay lit and device won't work at...

1) Open the battery compartment and there should be a small circular red button.

2) Next to the Wii's SD storage area there is a rectangular square button.

3) Hold down the red button on the controller and the red button on the Wii until the light on the controller stops blinking.

Sometimes it can take multiple tries to "sync" the controller with the Wii. Keep trying until the lights stop blinking.

Playstation 3: Go to turn it on and it starts up but then shuts down. Get a very fast yellow light then 3 beeps and a blinkng red light. Any suggestions other than sending to Sony? Have tried a few...

The red flashing light and the console down due to excessive heat. I believe what you are starting to see is the classic symptom of a very near YLOD. I would either try and repair it myself, using the guides from here Yellow Light of ***** Repair and this part or get someone to do it for you. Good Luck
