Unlpug the unit from the power outlet for about 1 minute, plug it back in and turn it on. If it doesn't work, unplug the unit again, re-seat the hard drive and make sure the connection is good.

Blinking red light indicates update process or hard drive failure.

Nintendo DS Lite keyboard problem

Recalibrating the Touch Screen
Remove all games from the Nintendo DS Lite.
Turn the system on by pressing the POWER switch.
Press the A Button when the "Touch the Touch Screen to continue" message appears.
When the main menu appears, use the Control Pad to place the cursor over the Settings Menu Panel at the bottom of the screen, and press the A Button.
Use the Control Pad to place the cursor over the orange icon that looks like crosshairs (the right-most icon), and press the A Button.
Use the stylus, and tap the red square that appears on the screen. Do this each time the square moves. (Note : You must touch the red square precisely at each of the three positions, otherwise the test will continue to re-start.)
When complete, four squares will appear, allowing users to test the touch screen sensitivity. (Testing is optional.) Tap the "Confirm" button in the lower-right corner.

Wait for the the confirmation message to disappear, then tap "Quit," then "Yes" to exit. The unit will shut down automatically to save the settings.

My xbox box has 3 red lights flashing... i know there are different types of error how do i know which on i have?

after turning it on, and seeing it display 3 red lights, hold the sync up button and tap eject.

The lights will change to a different pattern. This represents a number.
The number is four digits, so you'll have to hold sync and tap eject FOUR TIMES, remembering each pattern.

Pattern numbers are as follows:

4 red lights = 0
3 red lights = 3
2 red lights = 2
1 red lights = 1

Most common ones are 0020 and 0120.
