This is the yellow light of death and happens when the system overheats. When the system overheats it causes the solder on the board to melt and connect. The system needs to be reflowed. Check out www.wiredextreme.com. We can help you with this problem. All of our repairs include a 90 day warranty.

you need to change your power box there is a bad connection with the wires. its over heating you might whant to buy another at game stop or take it in to get fixed. the more you messed with it it might mess up your whole system.

What's your problem?system turned off green light then amber then flashing red


it's a hardware fault. If it's under guarantee send it back. If not then your fault might be able to be repaired at a cost. The fault is likely to be caused by overheating. turn it off on the back and let it cool. if the fault remains or reoccurs (which it most likely will) then it needs looking at by an electronics guy :O)

When i turn it on the fan starts then the red light goes green then amber and machine won't start


This is what is known as the "Yellow Light Of Death" usually associated with an overheating problem. Try googling it as there is a lot more information than I could possibly put here.

Hope this helps
