Get a tissue and damp it a little bit with water but not to much, then drop some water in to the crack or the L and R button. But lift the buttons up first. the take a Q-tip and clean the cracks. Then blow really hard on both buttons cracks(Create a seal on lips first when you blow)Like you kissing it. Then press on them repeatedly then BAM!!. If that doesen't work then lift up both buttons gently and then take it up. Then you'll see a bar then a spring, take the spring off and just use it fro there. If you okay...., with your buttons not coming back up but the'll work fine

When I enter a number using the + button, it often adds it multiple times

You may be pushing it down to hard or holding it down for too long. Try pushing and releasing it very quickly.

Good luck,

I play Call Of Duty Black Ops and You usually need to sprint by pushing in the Left Analog stick and your direction. For some reason my controller is pressing multiple buttons when I push the analog stick...

You have a couple of options here. Sounds like your controller may be on the fritz, so if you have the money, I would suggest purchasing a new controller.
Otherwise, in the game options, you can re-map any function to another button on your controller. I would recommend remapping the sprint button to some other button that you don't use for that game.

In resort golf game, controller sometimes does not respond when on screen says to press "B" . just beeps repeatedly .is this software related or hardware ? sometimes after multiple tries it responds.

This sounds like your controller had turned off then turned back on. The beeping sound occurs when your controller is connecting. As a test, try playing some other game and push B. Does it respond?? Does this happen with any other button? And is this the only controller with this problem??

The easiest problem to fix would be low batteries. First try this, then do the steps above and tell me what happened.

Console locks up after a few minutes of game play. Does not respond to remote. If eject button on console is pushed, console will unlock, then will continue and 15-30 seconds later, disc will eject, but...


If you are able to play DVDs with out through then most likely the system is not over heating. So you may have corrrupted data on the hard drive. I would recommend that you backup you save files and go through the steps below to format the hard drive. If you still have trouble they you do actually have a hard ware problem with the system.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Turns on, but buttons don't respond.

If you have a remote,just press down on the volume up button and roll it around in circles.It sounds stuck and that sometimes will help unstick it.Also do it on the TV's button.If that doesn't work please let me know and we'll try something else.Good luck!
