You likely have the "Three Red Rings of Death", which denotes a hardware failure. You can check on Xbox.com, they have some troubleshooting options that might help, but you'll probably have to send it in.

On Xbox.com you'll find a telephone number, you call in to Microsoft and file a claim. If your console is still under warranty (they extended it, so unless you've been messing around with it and broke the seal it shouldn't be a problem) then they will send you a box for it. You send the console in and they will either fix it or give you a new one, then send it back to you. This is all free of charge.

Wii sports - baseball - the batter keeps swinging constantly


This sounds like a sensor or controller issue. To eliminate the possibility of it being the sensor unplug the sensor and replace it with two candles the same distance apart as the length of the sensor and light them.

Candles can actually be used instead of the sensor as they emit Infra Red which the controller uses to tell the Wii where it is, in short they do the same job as the sensor panel. If the problem persists, its most likely the controller, try a different controller to eliminate this problem.

Console will not turn on. light is neither red or


Since you said the light isnt red or green im assuming its not glowing at all, and in that case you most likely over worked your adapter like i did. All you need to do is unplug the cord thats connected to a gray box from your Wii, and follow the cord out the other side and unplug it from the wall. The gray box is the adapter and if you leave it unplugged for a couple hours then hook it back up to the wii, the light should come back on, although in my case the light is now yellow when its off instead of red.

My ps3 wont stay on it keeps truning green to red?


Hardware issue.

You can try booting without the hard drive installed, but usually the system will need to be serviced by Sony.

You can reach them @ 1-800-345-5639

Or if you're close to LA, hit me up.

My playstation turns on and everything, but once i plug it in to any kind of television there is no picture or sound


Heres one solution that I found. If your ps3 turns on but does not boot up just stays a black screen most likely the hard drive got corrupted. So unfortunately you will lose all your saves. But to save the system when you power on the ps3 hold the button down its should beep once keep holding it and it should turn red in standby mode. Keep holding the power button down though. It should turn green again keep holding it should beep then double beep this time instead of going into standby. Let go now and some options will come onto the screen. You will need to plug in your ps3 controller and 6 options should come up. Reformat PS3 worked for me but I lost all my saves. Good luck!

Nothing comes up on tv when i turn ps3 on and controllers wont connect


Read this very carefully. Turn off your ps3 from the back. Then turn it back on wait unit the light is red. Turn on the system through the front keep holding the power on. You will hear a beep one time that just tell you that the ps3 is powering on keep holding the button until you hear the second beep this will rest your video setting. If that dosnt work call me at sony

The wii wont turn off and the light stays green


Hold the power button on the console for 4 seconds, it should override everything keeping it on and the light will turn red. If this doesn't work sorry, thats all I know.

No audio/no video, but no red lights


no red lights, no previous error msgs, and video output on the box has just died. playing halo yesterday and mid-game the colours went askew (like a green overlay) with horizontal banding, backing out to the dash solved nothing so after a reboot there was simply no video. troubleshooted the tv and cables and its definately the box.
