this means the cpu/gpu has overheated. thus the overheating.
if the unit was purchased less than three years ago you can still get it covered under warranty as addressed on microsoft by clicking here. this is actually a serious problem and effects a few consoles, much like the RROD if it is not under warranty you can try doing this and i stress the not. Make sure of this by calling microsoft before attempting this. if you do not want to do the overheat fix i suggest either A. find a company that fixes xbox's and provides a real reflow. Not a heatgun and a fan. But a actual infrared reflow station. or B. Send it to microsoft and pay the money to get it repaired. or C. sell it on your local craigslist or to someone that repairs them locally and use the money to buy a new xbox 360 slim or a used xbox 360 that is working but then someone might have already done the overheat trick and it may not have much life left.

I was playing cod online and it just turned its self of now in wont turn on i cant even eject my game i has a constant red light flashing?


Hello there andrew

If you have the red blinking light then you have the RED light of death AKA the RLOD.

The light is 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 RLOD.

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.

My Sanyo DS24425 tv is showing red retrace lines across the screen. The picture sometimes fades out and is replaced by these red lines. Can the tv be fixed?


yes it can be fixed. it needs replacement of a component that heats up and often due to heat it loses solid welded connection, if welded properly it returns back to normal, if not it needs replacement with substitute or comparable capacitor item removed Id codes on it

1) If it doesn't show on the screen automatically, press the R3 button (click your right thumbstick.)

2) The red line you see isn't an option for the RB. It's a "roll out" for the QB. It's showing you based on the blocking assignments for the offensive line, which way the QB should roll out.

Xbox 360 doesn't read the T.V


It sound like E74 Hana chip error very common, you could try fix it yourself, there are tutorials on the internet to fix the problem but you'll have to open your xbox and that would void the warranty.
the xbox sometimes doesn't show the red lights because the chip is not totally fried, so with the proper handle you could fix it.
If you do want to fix it by yourself here is a link showing how to do that.
