I am sorry clarky7781, but you have the infamous "red ring of death", sadly, the only way to fix this problem is to contact microsoft and tell them that you have the red ring of death and they will send you a box that you must send back to the company containing only your xbox console

I have a red ring around the power button.

So do I man, it sucks. If there are 3 of the 4 red lights lit up, you need to get a new console or send it in for repair, otherwise check that the cables in the back are plugged in correctly.

My wii isn't showing the wii hand on the menu screen or anywhere else so i can't get to anything, so can you please help me.

Make sure the Wii Sensor Bar is correctly plugged into the Wii, and that the Wii Remote has an unobstructed path to the Sensor Bar. Move the Wii Remote around, as the positioning of the Sensor Bar may not be exact. If you've done all of this and the problem persists, it may be that your Wii Sensor Bar is damaged. You may have to buy a new one.

My ps3 turned off on its own while i was loadin music onto it and now ever since then its doesnt want to turn back on .the indicater lights all turn on and go an orangy red color and the standby light...

I could be wrong, but i belive that orangy color might be the yellow light of death. Not sure what causes it but it has happened to me before. What you will have to do is either look up online a manual for solving ps3 issues like ylod. Otherwise if you want it fixed right you can send it in to sony. if its still under warranty you dont have to pay anything i dont believe. but if its out of warranty the price should be around 150 with shipping paid for by sony.
Hope i could help Sean

Theres a ring around the disc

the ring is from the console being moved when the system was on you can resurface the disk or theres a disk replacement program but with that ring it most likely will not work

If you have 4 lights, check your A/V cord. 3 lights is the Red Ring of Death. Call Microsoft. They have an extended 3 year warranty for this problem. hope this helps AJ

Wireless controller wil not sync with xbox 360

turn on the console. let it start up all the way. turn on the controller. on the console to the right side of the two memory card slots is a little button. press and hold it til the green lights start flashing around the power button. there is a little button on top of the controller. when the lights around the power button are flashing, press and hold the button on the top of the controller til the lights around the center button start flashing and then it should sync together

Can't select multiplayer

you need to hit the round X button the middle of both controllers and set which profile they will use.

Do it on controller 1 first then controller 2

PS3 just stopped working tonight

Hello. There are a few causes for this. I will list acouple solutions for you.

1. Reset the Video Output Settings. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings. Once you turn it back on, it should work fine.

2. If option 1 does not work call Sony because the video out chip has blown or come unsoldered.

Most likey it was caused by overheating. Get some compressed air and blow it out from the front and sides.

I hope this helps. Good luck to you.
