If you have 4 flashing red lights that means that the AV cable is not connected correctly. The ring of death is only 3 red lights. If you do indeed have 3 lights than i suggest trying this video clip. i have heard that this does work.

My ps3 wont start, you can plug it and it has a red flashing light, wont power on or nothing, cant even soft start it. what is and what can i do. any help will be very appreciated


Hi frankie,

Are you seeing any flashing red/yellow lights?

If so this is the red light error and you will find that is why the system will not turn on.

Why Does It Happen?

The GPU and the CPU are the 2 main chips in the system and they deal with all of the number crunching however they can get very hot and if they lose connection the system will either freeze up or turn off and give you the red flashing light.

How To Fix?

The key is stopping the heat build up and you can either send it in and they will fix it for you.

Bear in mind that for the PS3 red flashing light error you will be waiting for about 4 weeks and it will also cost you $150 for the repair bill!

Other Ways To Fix?

You can also use a good PS3 Repair Guide to fix it and this will show you how to stop the heat build up with a few household items.

Just make sure that you get a good guide there are some good ones out there!

3 red lights


3 red lights means you have a system hardware failure

you need to call 1-800-4my-xbox and get them to send you a box so you can send it in for repairs

Wont do anything


It sounds like you're in the 0.3% who's PS3s have bricked. You have to get them replaced - either take them back to the store (if you have the reciept) or call Sony and tell them about the problem. They should have it replaced for you, unfortunately, there's no other solution for this, it's the PS3's version of the Red Ring of Death, but it a lot less common.

Flashing red and green light in xbox


You have a major failure on the motherboard. If it was your hard drive the system will boot up, but freeze on the main screen and you will hear clicking coming out of the hard drive. Red and Green flashing lights means there is a problem on the motherboard. Sometimes you can fix the problem by reflashing the Bios on the main motherboard.
