SOURCE: red flashing light, won't power on

Try turning the power off at the back and leave it unplugged for 10 minutes.

How long has it been running for without being turned off to cool down?

SOURCE: red light flashing/won't turn on

you are right about replacing the thermal compound between the cpu/gpu and heat sync. the gpu and cpu may need to be refolowed also. another tip is dont over tighten the screws. Tip: keep your ps3 flat do not keep it standing. when it is standing and heats up the thermal compound can start to move away from the heat sync. Keeping it flat will help extend the life PS3 at least from the overheating issue.

SOURCE: PS3 shuts down after one second

hi , i hate to say this but you need to do this asap. Call the playstation support line and send it in. your ps3 is experience a corrupted hard drive. This will only get worse and will eventually shut down for good.

I have an old Carrier N1340 air conditioner that works when switched on, green light flashes 4 times, for a few times then it shuts down. There is also a flashing red light inside that unit.


There will be a list of flash codes in your manual or on the inside cover of the unit indicating what the problem is eg. low pressure or high pressure alarm

I just bought a second hand baby monitor from graco and they have charged but the one on my room is flashing a red light and continuosly beeps why???


When mine is red I check two things, that it's sitting flat in the charger and that all plug ins on all units are in snugly. The other thing is sometimes the main unit in the babys room is turned off so make sure the switch on the side is on. Hope it helps.

System comes on and immediately red light flashes


PS3 flashing is not hard to fix. Do you want to fix it by yourself instead of pay $150 checking to Sony? Here's the solution :

Red light flashing and noise


The user manual states the flashing red light signals that your transportation lock is on. Look underneath the scanner and you'll see a switch for "lock" and "unlock." If the switch is turned to "lock" move it over to "unlock" and plug the usb cable back into your computer. It should work with no flashing red light. If not try restarting your computer and plugging it back in again.

Look at your manuel find the page that shows the limit access switch. (Unplug your opener.) It isn't really a switch, but the three white plastic screw like parts. The center has a brown wire connected to it, which has a metal piece that is as wide as all three white screws. The outside screws are your limit access stop guides, one for the up control stop guide and the other for the down control stop guide. If the center screw with the metal part gets caught behind on of the stop guides the motor will not engage. Gently move metal piece from behind the stop guide.
