You have the Red Ring of death. For a temporary fix wrap it in a lot of towels and let it run for 20 mins, then let it cool down. This is a temporary fix! The real fix is to send it into Microsoft. You will need the original receipt handy to do this. If you have any questions for either solution I have a YouTube video for the temporary fix and more detailed instructions for the repair. The repair is free.

When i plug my wirless xbox 360 internet adapter into my xbox it blinks red one time right when i plug it in then its just blank. wat am i doing wrong?

The adapter is bad it should turn on red and stay red until you set-up the wireless settings and then it will display green. If there is no light at all that usually mean the adapter has gone bad (I have had one go bad on me also). If by some chance you have some old routers laying around you should consider making your own wireless adapter/bridge by flashing dd-wrt ( onto both of them and setting one up as a bridge to connect your xbox too.

My PS3 won't stay on when I turn it on. I push the back button then touch the front to turn it on, and the green light comes on for a second and nothing comes on the screen then a red light comes on and it...

I want to just make it clear to you, that you can repair the following problems at home with a good repair guide. There is no technical knowledge needed you simply do what you see on the step by step videos or the paper guide.

The best thing is to get and keep your repair guide for life so if something goes wrong in the future you can just review your guide and fix it.

My n64 went through a brown out and now the red light wont come on and it wont turn on

I think that there is something wrong with your ac adapter you might have to get a new one or have it checked and or fixed then. Its easier to by a new N64 console then which is seconded handed.

I put the charger in the orange light turns on and I turn on the game and it's still on red after it's still charging for a while

I would say leave it charging for 5 hours tops! if it's still red something is wrong with your DS!

Iam have problems with my ps3 i dropped it and now it dosent want to turn on the green light comes on for a second goes to orange then to red wat do you think could be wrong with it

You broke it when you dropped it. It's a delicate piece of machinery and isn't meant to be dropped. Sorry to break it to you, but your PS3 is basically a rock now.
