You may need a new power supply....also check your internal fans to make sure they are spinning. Make sure memory is seated properly. Motherboard may also be in question.

Turns on with snow and yellow light under lamp. Why does it shut down after 20 seconds?


yellow steady light is overheating. you have a stuck fan or its all clogged with dust. The only way to fix it is to find what is causing it to overheat or prevent the fan from spinning. It is not lamp related unless you bought a lamp that does not have an Osram bulb inside.

My xbox 360 had gotten the red ring, so I heated the mother board with a heat gun and then replace the thermal paste, now the power brick is orange/yellow when plugged in, turn on the box it goes green for...


We STRONGLY recommend you not to use heat gun as it can heat other components, when your system have 3 red light and no fan are spinning it means that one of your fuses has gotten damaged and no power can go through your GPU chip.
Thanks

When I turn on my PS3 the fan goes on loud for 7 seconds while the system is blinking red. And nothing shows up on the screen. How can I fix this?


Does it show a yellow light anytime during you turning it on? If so you have whats called yellow light of death and will need to take the console apart with a Phillips head screw driver and refloe the CPU and gpu with a hot air gun(pretty cheap on eBay) and you'll need some thermal compound paste. If you have just a red light and nothing else you have a bad power supply Which is internal also.

Pover up trouble


sounds like something is drawing down on your 12 volt supply drives or on board regulators. Try it without the drives connectged, and see if you can get the system to boot up(you'll just get a notice that your drives are unavailable, but you'll already know that, right?
