    Is the ring flashing or steady?

  • Jon May 11, 2010

    This is known as the red ring of death! Just kidding. This is a known problem with the xbox 360. Is the ring flashing at all or is it a solid red?

That is called the red circle of death and is usually caused by the heating and cooling of the circuit board, video, and processor chips solder junction failing. It can sometimes be fixed at home if you are handy. Search the internet and U Tube there you will find solutions and tutorials about this problem. If in warranty send it in otherwise you might want to try fixing it yourself, I have successfully repaired two that way.

2010 dodge caravan warning light red circle with exclamation mark in the centre and parentheses around the circle


The manual will tell you what it means. You can download one at Dodge.com/ownersmanual. Look on the door tag to see where it was manufactured. Get the appropriate one. Canada has different lights than the USA.

How do i turn on the flash?


On the menu there should be an icon that looks like a yellow lightning bolt with a red circle around it and a red line thru it (this means that the flash is off)....in the lower right hand corner you should see a white lightning bolt. Tap the red circle 2 times and you should notice that the yellow lightning bolt now stands alone and the red circle and the red line has been removed (now your flash is on). Note: Each time you turn on the camera and you need flash, you will have to make this adjustment...I hadn't figured out a way so that it happens automatically..


THANKS.

How do i turn off the flash on the cannon power shot a530


Press the Flash button (the top part of the circular "joystick" button, marked with a lightning bolt) to cycle through the options. You can choose from Auto with red-eye reduction, Auto, Flash on with red-eye reduction, Flash on, and Flash off. You want the lightning bolt in a circle with a slash through it.

My xbox360 has a red circle instead of a green circle theirfore will not work what can this be


Three flashing red lights around the Xbox 360 power button (nicknamed the "Red Ring of Death"), represent an internal problem that requires service. Warning signs may include freeze-ups, graphical problems in the middle of gameplay, such as checkerboard or pinstripe patterns on the screen, and sound errors, and the console only responds to pressing the power button to turn it off.

This error code is usually caused by failure of one or more hardware components, although it can indicate that the console is not receiving enough power from the power supply, which can either be due to a faulty power supply or if the power supply cable is not fully inserted into the console.


Distinct from the General Hardware Failure is a similar-looking error warning where four red lights appear, in which case the console does not detect an AV cable is plugged in. The four lights can sometimes also be seen when power surges or very brief power outages occur while the console is running, in which the console needs to be unplugged and plugged back in again to reset the error. Two red lights appear when the system is overheated.

If your Roomba's red "check robot" light comes on, the Roomba should also give a hi-lo warning tone, then a number of beeps. Check the number of beeps with the chart toward the end of your manual-- it should tell you what to do.
