When i turn my playstation on, after 5-10 seconds it shuts off by itself and the red light keeps flashing, what do i do?


If ur ps3 console wont start up....then the things to check are>>> 1.check ur power cable 2.check whether u have inserted the disc properly and precisely. 3.check the insertion of memory card... 4.check the video port.......
The PS3 red light problem occurs when your system refuses to boot up and has a small flashing red light on the power button. In most cases, the power button will turn from red to yellow and then back to a blinking red and the system will not boot up from there as it is supposed to.
There can be a variety of issues that cause the Playstation 3 red light problem, but in most cases it comes down to the system overheating. The more it overheats the more damage is created internally to the motherboard
and other functioning components. This can be caused simply by a flaw in the system or by obstructions to the fan vent such as a wall, floor, or excessive collection of dust...

2 flashing red lights


Two flashing red lights means it has overheated. Maybee it does have alot of ventilation but the dust may have ecumulated to an amount that can not escape the system case. Clean it really well with a can of compressed air and make sure fan is running in the back. Some fans fail but continue to spin so if it looks to slow it probably is. You can watch you tubes tutorials about opening and cleaning your console. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Xbox 360 halo problems


my halo sometimes does the same thing when i start up the game but pressing a usually gets you through it, but if your xbox 360 overheats within minutes and is an older xbox 360 its usually a burnt out fan or just full of dust, if its old then ur warranty might already be out and if it is just open up the xbox and use an air compressor or anything else to get all the dust out of the xbox. in my case everything was just caked with dust. anyways... good luck

My xbox has 2 red lights it keeps overheating but the heat sinks dnt get hot


Wrap it in a couple of towels and let it run, 10-15 minutes, it will overheat and shut down and the three red lights will be flashing, then turn it off, let it cool, 15-30 minutes, turn it back on and bam, it should work, granted its not a permanent thing but it will work from a week-month, from then on the red ring of death will appear when it shuts down instead of the 2 lights, and you can either fix it yourself, do the towel trick again, or just send it to Microsoft if the warranty is still intact. trust me it works.

2 red lights fans don;t work


Hey Marsh2Man,


It's not your fans that's causing the problem. It's the XBOX itself. The Xboxes generally overheat and this has been a big problem for Microsoft. Alot of companies are actually reflowing these system, reheating the solder under the chips allowing them to connect back down to the points on the board.


You will need your system reflowed. Contact a repair shop.

2 red lights. Fans don't help


you have to take the x-box apart(youtube) and then take off the heat sinks clean the thermal paste apply new thermal paste remount heat sinks with type 5mm screws and m-5 washers, nylon not necessary. after remounting the heatsinks you have to overheat the system and then let it cool. the overheating process will sometimes require a heat gun since the console will not stay on long enough to get it heated properly. you sometimes don't have to do this if reapplying new thermal paste has done the trick.

Xbox360 has 3 red lights


Its when the solder overheats and disconnects a wire in the xbox. If you have bought it within the last year, you can return or swap for new wherever you bought it. If not you will most likely have to send it off to xbox repairs.

Cant play games on Xbox 360 live


imma suspect its overheating. beings the fact youve experienced the red ring of death in the past. its either overheating or the hard disk is going bad. unless your using a memory unit. then id point the finger at overheating. the x360 is basically a computer. and when the cpu and gpu overheat or experience harsh temperatures they tend to run sluggish and their performance goes down the **** till they cool down or overheat to the point that the system locks up and crashes/hangs. if you can post more info as much detailed as you can i may be able to more help ya!

Reads everything but ps3games


ok my friend, the blue ray laser has two high energy beams at 450nm(bluelight) and 730nm (redlight). the highpower diode on your machine im afraid has failed. The bluray light reads bluray games and bluray dvd's. the lower power red light reads audiocds and regular dvds/dvdrs. you need to install a new laser ..only 100 i charge or 160 from sony (150+TAX+2 week wait+frustration from not playing COD4)
Now if you have the newer model laser KES410ACA, then you have 2 SEPARATE light sources...these tend not to fail as often
