It's called the red ring of death. Usually means that your system is bad, but I would not go that far yet. If usually the red rings go all the way around. Have you tried to make sure that all the cords on the back were pluged in correctly and tight?

Power comes on but it only shows a blank screen. screen shows nothing at all no menu, nothing. tv works fine.


Make sure the video/audio cable is plugged in correctly. Red cable into red socket, yellow into yellow and white into white. It is easy to put these cables in the wrong socket by accident and will cause no image to appear on your screen.

My son's playstation 3 has power going to it, the hdmi is new. The disc appears to be moving in the ps3 but nothing is appearing on the screen. All connectors are in correctly.


That happens when you change tv.
Unlpug it and wait for 30 seconds.
Plug it back. The red red light that indicates that the ps3 is off should be on.
The light must be red(turned off)
Now do this:

PRESS and HOLD the power button for 5-6 seconds untill you hear the second beep

There you go
check here if this didn't work

During game screen went blank. flashed red ring on 1 and 3


That means your console is overheating. Make sure you are providing proper ventilation (atleast 12 inches in the back and 3-4 on each side minimum) Also make sure that your power brick is not sitting in the carpet as this can cause it to overheat.
Lay your 360 horizontal to give it better airflow and reduce heat in the future.

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.

Xbox 360 problem


If you can still HEAR sound, but can't see. Check your Audio Video Cable.

It's the colorful one (red, white, yellow) (red, blue green, white, red)

Make sure the connections are secure into the back of the TV as well as the connection to the back of the Xbox 360.
