Hi calleyne

Im going to take a huge guess here and say your problem resides with the xbox360 and the three red lights on the ring of light around the power button,

ok there are 2 options you can take,

one, you can call Microsoft for a repair box, the good thing about it is now they will still repair it if its out of warranty, the bad part about it is they charge $100 and it can take some time before you get another 360 from them,

two, you can open the xbox360 yourself and see whats wrong on the inside, **note that even if you do this you can still do option one** the main things you can check are the processor, heat sinks, the disk drives, and the gpu and the heat sink on top of it, i found that what was causing my first xbox360 to get the red ring was the heat sink over the processor was touching and was causing it to get super hot, but really all you should have to do is lift the heat sink off the processor and put some liquid coolant like you would on a pc and place it back, thats what i did at least.

Hope that helps ^-^

Red light blinking


Your PS3 is suffering from whats known as RLOD or YLOD, Red light of Death or Yellow light of death. Basically its has a processor problem because overheating has lifted the processors from the motherboard and the Red Light is a purposely incorporated alarm that Sony uses to diagnose these problems. You will find loads of YLOD fixes on youtube but they wont last very long unless you get it reballed by a professional. you can google YLOD fix and youll get loads of home fixes but they only temporarily fix this probem, Sorry to be the bearer of bad new but I hope I helped.

Red lights go on not green and wont load anything


That is unfortunately a common problem with xbox 360s. It's called the "red red lights" and it means the console has failed / "died". You will need to call Microsoft at 1-800-4-My-Xbox and they will repair it (most likely for free, the warranty is 3 years for this problem).

Thanks, hope this helps =)

My ps3 doesnt work


if it wont load your icons and freezes before your xmb, put it into safemode and try restoring the filing system. to get it into safemode...

hold down the power button while the console is in standby. the light will go from red to green.it will beep once flash green beep again, and then beep a third time. after the third beep the light will turn red.

once the light is red, take your finger off the power button and place it back on the power button. the light will go from red to green, beep once flash and then beep twice quickly. after it does the double beep, take your finge roff. the light will stay green and you'll get a screen asking you to connect the controller.

after connecting the controller, try option 3, or whichever option is restore filing system. this can possibly correct media loading and will 95% of the time fix the console when it freezes before loading up your icons(the xmb)

It just wont work


If you have 3 red lights on the ring you have what they call RROD or red ring of death. Bottom right would be hardware failure.

DVD Drive failure most common problem, this ranges from dirty disk error (DDE) message to inoperable drive door, skipping in movies, slow load time or no load or the call customer service errors 10, 11, and 12. To replace the drive it will have to be reflashed.

Check if its under warranty. It needs to be serivced. It is headed for the 3 red lights or no video problem caused by the solder under the GPU>

Xbox 360 wont load to main menu. No red ring.


This is the problem with the GPU, Just fixed on the other day with the same problem. best way to fix it is with a heatgun and an xbox360 repair kit. The same kit for fixing the 3 red lights and E74 problems.

You can get the kit here.

Red lights on xbox 360


Which three lights? if its Top Left, Bottom Left, Bottom Right, then you have the infamous "Red Ring of Death." witch means general hardware failure. If you search around on the internet, there are some Xbox360 modding sites that sell kits to repair this kind of problem (if youre brave enough to tackle it).

Luckily Microsoft is aware of this problem and has extended thier warranty to 3yrs (but ONLY if you have this particular problem).

Otherwise you'd have to send it into Microsoft to get it repaired.

Wont play games or movies


Make sure you are up-to-date with version 2.2 (came out last night). Make sure the dvd's aren't dirty or scratched or copies. Other than that, dvd's are hit-and-miss. Try switching to Blu-Ray discs. They are so much better...
