When you get one red light flashing on the ROL of your Xbox 360 console that's an indicator of a hardware problem with the console connection to one of the parts connected to it as the hard drive or cables.

So, first disconnect all power and AV cables from the back of your Xbox 360 console and also unplug the power cord from the wall socket, wait for a minute then reconnect them all back and try to turn on your Xbox 360 console once more.

If that doesn't work, it seems then to be a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so turn off the console again and remove the hard drive then turn on your Xbox 360 console without the hard drive, supposed then to work fine, it might be an intermittent issue and when you reconnect the hard drive your Xbox 360 will work fine all after, or it will just work fine without the hard drive so it will be then definitely a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so call Xbox 360 customer support to exchange the hard drive for you.

The Xbox 360 console might even keep giving you the same error code even after you remove the hard drive so it will then appear to be a fault with your Xbox 360 console not the hard drive & also in a case like this we need to contact Xbox 360 customer support to exchange the console.

Hi,

One of the most frustrating things that can happen with your Xbox is getting the red Light error. This Xbox red blinking error message tells you that there has been some kind of critical failure in your 360. What it does not say is what to do about it. There are several preliminary steps you can take that may be able to help you recover from the error. If these do not work, you are going to need to consult and in depth repair guide to find a solution to your problem.

Initial Steps To Examining A Red Blinking Error Message

The first thing you want to do when you get a red blinking error message is reboot your Xbox. Many times a component will become locked up or fail and the system will simply require a reboot. Since the product is based roughly around a Personal Computer type configuration, many of the fixes that hold true on a PC will hold true on it. When you reboot, you restart and reset all of the coding in the machine to ensure that you are not running into any software errors. If the reboot does not work, there may be something more complex going on and it will require a couple of different approaches.

One of the issues could be that there is a loose connection somewhere. If the reboot does not fix your problem, try checking all of the connections to make sure that everything is plugged in properly. If there is something loose or not plugged in all the way you may get an Xbox red blinking error. Once you have checked to make sure that everything is connected properly, reboot your system. If you still get the Xbox red blinking error there is one more basic step you can try to bring your system back to life.

Turn off the system and let it sit for at least a half hour. Another thing that can cause the Xbox red blinking error to occur is overheating. By letting the unit sit and giving it time to cool down, you may be able to simply turn it on and boot back in. The problem is that more then likely the error is being caused by some bigger problem inside the unit. As certain components fail heating or more specifically cooling becomes a big issue.

If the problem persists, let me know.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

When i turned on my ps3 it turned on green then turned yellow then started blinking red as it turned off


Hello there damian

If you have the brief flashing yellow light, then its followed by a red blinking light then you have the yellow light of death AKA the YLOD.

The lights are a warning sign to let you know something is wrong. I can give you the quick explanation, There are 2 chips on the motherboard inside the PS3, the GPU (graphics) and the CPU (brain), when playing the ps3 the solder heats up and when you finish playing it cools down, over time this will cause the soldering to crack and the chips to lose connection with the motherboard and you get the YLOD.

WHERE TO GO FROM HERE

Option 1 - Call Sony

In warranty the Price is Free, out of warranty the Price is $150, the whole process is 4-6 weeks

You can call Sony and they will collect the PS3, repair/replace, and deliver the PS3 back to you

Option 2 - Fix it your Self

You can use a PS3 fix manual to get this fixed easily and at home using household tools you probably already own.

Lights keep blinking yellow on my play station and its hard to get the disk out


This article will give you the Safest, Easiest and Quickest way to Fix the YLOD, Red Light of Death.
In order to fix the YLOD, RLOD error on your PS3, you should try the following 3 things:
1 - Restart your console. 2 - Take out all cables, and plug them back in. 3 - Take out the hard-drive, and place it back in your PS3 console.
If these 3 tips didn't help you to fix your PS3 red light error, then it's high likely that you need to open up your console, and fix the problem from within. I really can't help you with that, because you'll need step by step instructions that's coming along with either videos or pictures. But, you've got 3 options to get your hardware problems solved.
There Are 3 Ways To Fix Your PS3 Red Light Problems.
1) If you have no idea of to fix the PS3 yourself, you could send your PS3 back to Sony and let them figure out how to repair the problem. This can take some time and unfortunately if your warranty has expired you will be paying around $150.
2) Take your PS3 to your local repair shop and let them fix it. The downside to this is that they can't guarantee that your PS3 will be fixed.
3) Fix your PlayStation 3 by yourself. If you don't know how to fix ps3 flashing red light, then it's no problem. It's not hard or expensive, and I was lucky to stumble across this site that sorted me out in no time.

Many of people suggesting to buy new PS3 but IMO it is better to fix it yourself. I am saying it because if you buy new one and if that also start to show same error then what you gonna do. Then it will be waste of so much money. There is lots of guides, step by step instructions and pictures that help you to fix it your own. Just visit one of this PS3 repair guides and fix your ps3 YLOD permanently
