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.

How do i fix a proscan tv to turn, only a red and blue light are on

Well without actually opening it up and determining where the problem is, it's unlikely you will get it to come back on. I suspect something wrong with the power supply but it could be something else also.

I have a 1999 VW Bug, My break lights just stopped working. I replaced the bulbs and changed the fuses! And they still arent working what else could be the problem and are there any solutions to fix it!

I think the FI RST thing I would check is the brake lamp switch. It should have power on the RED/BROWN wire all the time. The RED/BLACK wire should be hot when the pedal is depressed. If you have the power on the RED/BROWN as decribed, but cannot get any power on the RED/BLACK wire, then you must replace the switch. Another wat to double-check this is to disconnect the connector at the brake light switch and use a paper clip to jumper the wires together. The brake lights should come on, if they do come on. replace the brake lamp switch.

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.

Hand brake light wont go out

this sounds like the brake pads may have worn down and the sensors have lit the warning light on the dash, check the brake pads and if the thickness of the pad is at about 3mm then a new set of pads and sensor will be required

Amp will not turn on

That is the way it should be connected. If the protect light comes on you have a different problem than the power connections.

Try to turn it on withour any speakers connected, if it turns on then, you have a bad speaker or you may may the speakers connected inproperly.

If it still goes into protect you have an internal problem with the amplifier.

An internal problem would be something you would need a professional technician to check out. Could be in the power supply circuit, but most of the time it is a blown channel.

If you require any more help feel free to ask,
And if you found this advise to be helpful a "FixYa" rating would be appreciated.
