Hi,

This is similar to the red light problem but the reason you get a screen is because the GPU has overheated.

You just need to stop the heat build up getting to the main chips and you will be able to play your games again.

To do this you have 2 choices:

Send it in and they will fix it for you although something to bear in mind that it will take 4 weeks and cost you $150 for the fix.

Or you can use a good PS3 Repair guide and fix it yourself.

1 red ring flashing dont no wot to do need help!!!I it says E74 dont no wot tht means!!!


Try restarting your console. If your console continues to display the E74 error message, it requires a repair. You can visit http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/nxe/registerdevice.aspx?step=repair

or call 1-800-4MY-XBOX

Microsoft covers repairs for the E74 error for a period of three (3) years from the original purchase date of the console. If you are outside the initial three-year warranty period, you can still receive console repair service from Microsoft for a fee for the E74 error.

It isint turning on it flashes yellow then red wot should i do


This is known as the yellow light of death (ironic i know because it blinks red). This is caused when the unit overheats causing solder on the main board to melt and bridge(connect). Once this happens it shorts out the board causing the error you have now. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty.

Wont post led 3 flashes


if its the red flashing light on the tower, its the hard drive activity light.

when the monitor goes on stand by, does the tower retain power? (green light on and flashing red light sometimes?) Does your keyboard's scroll lock/num lock/caps lock keys and keyboard lights work?

Getting a red ''wrench'' symbol, spits out blank page when making copy, error message to turn off/on main switch which we have done, but doesn't clear the error. The red ''wrench'' symbol keeps coming...


Press "clear/stop" and "8" at the same time. An error code will be displayed as long as these two buttons are held down. What is the error code? Let me know, please.

Immune to 3 red lights


to get it to over heat you just turn it off and then stick a tooth pick in the back to stop the fan and tape it in place but once it cools down you wont have 3 reds anymore unless you keep the toothpick in for like a week
