Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Cannot connect to internet

Normally orange light @ front of console will flash like any normal computer to indicate that it's doing something however, my PS3 now will not connect to the internet as of yesterday. Haven't got the error codes but it first started last Friday when error codes were flashing up whilst disconnecting me from FiFa games. It was then taking approx 5mins to re-connect (if it did connect that is). But now it's not happening, theres no light flashing indicating anything is happening but it can scan & find the router. Tried to set up a new internet connection but it trys to find the ip address but then times out saying it has failed.
Have l a faulty machine as l've been playing online for 18mths & all the internet connection settings are exactly the same as previous
Please help

Netgear wndr3300 blinking orange light

It depends. Have you checked the Netgear support site for FAQ and the manual. In some routers, orange lights indicate wired 100Mbps connections while green indicates 1000Mbps. In other cases, blinking lights indicated that the router is 'bricked'.

What does it mean when the orange light on the ps3 flashes?

f there is an orange light on your PS3 then there are a few basic steps you need to take that stand a good chance at being able to fix your console. Firstly, check that all the cables and leads are correctly attached to your PS3. Sometimes a cable or lead may have become slightly unseated if you moved your PS3 or somebody/something bumped into it. Remove every lead and cable and then re-attach them, one by one.Next, power down your PS3 and leave it switched off for at least 30 minutes. From time to time the Playstation 3 orange light error can be caused by overheating, so by turning it off and leaving it you will give your console a chance to cool down. However, it is important to note that this is only a temporary fix to your problem, and the orange light error on your PS3 will come back.Finally, ensure that your PS3's network connection is working properly. If you connect your console to the Internet via a wireless connection then this connection can sometimes be interrupted, thus causing problems with your console. Turn off your Internet modem/router and then reboot it. Also, try using a wired Internet connection to your PS3, if this is possible.By following the above steps you may be able to fix the PS3 orange light error.

I have a Linksys WRT110. We have set up the router, and made a wireless network but it seems the router can't connect the computers. The problem seems to be that the light above the reserved button is...

it means its lost its connection, theres a little reset button near the on off switch normally use a paper clip or safety pin and press for 10 secs and it should start flashing and connect again

Power box light is blinking orange and sometime a steady red and console want come on.

Green Indicator Light:

The default indicator light is green. When the Xbox 360 power supply light is green it means that there are no problems with your power supply. However, if you are having problems and the power supply light is green, this means that the console is faulty and you need to contact Xbox 360 support.

Orange or Yellow Indicator Light

When the Xbox 360 power supply light is orange or yellow this means there is no problem with your console but the power supply can't supply it with power.

To remedy this problem, first try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console and unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. You'll also want to uplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord.

Wait for about five minutes and then reconnect everything. You might also want to try plugging it into another wall outlet without an extension cord.

If you are still getting an orange or yellow indicator light, then something is at fault with the Xbox 360 power supply. If this is the case, contact the Xbox 360 customer support to get a new one.

Red Indicator Light:

If the xbox 360 power supply light is red, then there is something wrong with the power supply connection. If this is the case, try the same solution as listed above of unplugging the power supply from the console, unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet and unplugging the power supply from the power cord. Wait for about five minutes and then reconnect everything. You might also want to try plugging it into another wall outlet without an extension cord.

If the indicator lights are still red, then there is a fault with the power supply. If this is the case, contact customer support about getting a new one.

No Indicator Light:

If the XBox 360 power supply light is not illuminating at all, this usually means that the Xbox power supply is not connected to the wall outlet correctly. On the other hand, it might also be a fault with the power supply or the power cord.

Either way, try the same solution as listed above for the red indicator lights. If you still don't see any lights illuminated after unplugging and then reconnecting everything, you'll need to contact customer support about getting a new power supply.

Green and Orange Indicator Light:

If the indicator light is flashing green and orange, this may mean that the console does not detect the AV Pack.

Disconnect and then reconnect the Xbox AV Pack. Make sure the connections are firmly connected. Turn your Xbox back on.

If the indicator light is still flashing green and orange, try another AV pack if one is available.

If the indicator light is still flashing green and orange, you'll need to contact Miscrosoft Customer support.

Flashing Orange Indicator Light:

If your Xbox console's indicator light flashes orange, this means the internal components have overheated and the Xbox has automatically shut down to prevent damage.

Turn off the console and let it cool for at least 10 minutes.

To prevent the Xbox from overheating in the future, make sure that it's not placed in a closed cabinet or on carpet. It's best to get the Xbox elevated off the ground where the PSU can have maximum heat release.

You'll also want to make sure the Xbox is not located near a heat source like the back side of a television, computer, monitor, or other electrical device.

I have a 2002 pontiac aztek. My rear right signal/brake lamp does not work. When i signal left, the front and rear left lights flash normally. When i signal right, the front right light flashes normally...

as for the faster flashing thats as simple as a blown bulb, replace the bulb and see if that fixes the problem, it may fix the lot because the other symptoms you mention are a bad connection, if bulb is fine check the connection isnt loose or corroded over. if it is simply file it back to establish better connectivity,

Orange LED indicator on the "Power Ring"

From the sounds of things you have a bad RF Board. This is the board that controls the syncing of your controllers, as well as your ring of light. If there is someone in your area that fixes the RROD they may be able to replace your RF board as well. I'd be happy to do it, but shipping would be almost the same cost as the repair. Contact me at for more info.
