From everything I have read so far, all of you have what they call the "Yellow Light of death" (YLOD) or also known as the "Red Light of Death" (RLOD). Major hardware failure from overheating and the solder joints melt...a POS designn law from Sony that they don't seem to want to correct. I going take mine apart now. Will have details later

Sounds like your GPU (graphics processing unit) is giving out. Usually they just give out due to faulty solder joints or overheating, but sometimes one or more of the tiny transistors that make up any integrated chip start acting up. Try giving more airflow around vents and see if that helps, other than that, you will have to send it in or buy another motherboard for it.

This will be something to do with the av cable or the HDMI lead. try replace them. if it still doesn't work, Message back to me and i'll have a in-dept look at your situation.

I can't play rock band for my ps3


There should've been a patch released for that, but you gotta go to to accessory settings and reassign your rockband peripherals to any slots 1-4, if its 5-7 they wont work.

Xbox 360 issue.


Hello Snarker it sounds like you have a bad AV cable, try replacing it with a different one( It will costs $5-10). If there is still a problem try removing your HDD ( the hard drive which is removed from the top of your xbox 360). If neither of those seem to fix your screen's issue, you may have an internal device that has overheated or come loose, I would recommend try leaving your xbox on and see if red rings appear on your console Like this(they might be in a different idea I am just letting you know where to look) 9ca118f.jpg. If they do you can send your xbox back to Microsoft wait 2-4 weeks and get it back for free.

I hope that helped and if you need anymore assistance please let me know.

Ps3 console: Put disks into machine and it now does not recognize them. The blue read light stays on, but get nothing.


I had the same issue after playing Call of Duty 4. Just wouldn't read any type of disc. Spoke to Sony sent a new PS3 out the very next day. My brother in law a week later experienced the same, again Sony sent new PS3 out. I think theres a problem with it, and thats why Sony just replaces them with no questions asked to avoid bad publicity

Ps3 not reading disk


Actually Ryan, PS3 does has an OS. It's a version of Linux. Shat, does a message come up and say it wont read the disc, or a black screen? If it's the black screen, get a USB keyboard, hook it to the PS3, turn the PS3 on, and type in boot game-os or boot game.os I can't remember for sure which one it was. Let me know if that helps.

Ps3 not reading disk


Not much I'm afraid, unless you still have contact with the mate you bought it off. They may still have their receipt/warranty card lying around which you can use to get it repaired.
