    Your right about the red blinking light. I put a disc and went off. But the system is still responding to the inputs of my controller. The controller is brand new and the system acted the same way to a used controller

Red flashing access light means no disc is in the drive. You can try a laser lens cleaning but most likely the cd drive is dead. If you need further assistance let me know.
Thank you,

    You could open it up and re-seat some of the connections. This may be a motherboard problem. Have you considered purchasing a replacement saturn?
    Thank you,

How do i stop red light from blinking?

Which indicator light on what model Uniden DECT 6.0 system?
If it's the message light then you have unheard messages on the voicemail system provided by your telephone company. This system records messages when someone calls while you're already on the phone. Please contact your telephone company for instructions on accessing their voicemail system.

I have a Sharp flat panel model LC-20SH4U. The units power LED light is red. No effect (sound or picture) when remote or on/off switch is activated. The LED light slightly blinks.

Resetting the TV
If the buttons on the remote AND the buttons on the TV case do not work (channels do not change and you cannot open or navigate the menu), the TV has stopped responding. Reset the TV as follows:

Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time.

1. Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet.
2. Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...)
3. Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.
5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again.
6. Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices.
7. Turn on the TV.

Hope this may help;

Samsung plasma blinking red light, tv won't turn off

Hello, The real problem is on your TV 'scircuit. Due to high electric power supply there might be a short circuit damage. It's better you call up your service technician and ask him to offer you a onsite support.

First blinking green light tv would turn on for a few minutes then turn off, pushed reset button and unpluged but problem would continue now theres no sound no picture and just a steady red light. Please...

The red light is indicating the set has shut down for a specific reason. You can dtermine the reason by going to the sets front panel and pressing the menu button and the device/input button both in together and hold for 6 seconds. The light will switch and begin to blink a series of blinks( First number) and pause briefly then blink another number of blinks (second number) then it will repeat that same two digit blink code. Let me know the code and I will let you know what happened to shut the set down. Respond to this same post for assistance.

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.

Red blinking light when tv is turned off

You can't fix it. There is a bad board in this set; either the main board or the power supply board. You'll have to call a professional.

Bush 32" TV. desperate situation. T-T

The TV is in protection mode. An internal problem was detected and the set shutdown to prevent further damage. If the set is only 9 months old, it should still be under warranty. Call and request warranty service.
