Hi jrrhoada13,

The PS3 red light is a huge problem and it is caused by the GPU and the CPU overheating, all you need to do is stop the heat build up.

You have 2 ways of doing this:

You can send it in however bear in mind that for the fix you will have to wait for 4 weeks and also pay out $150 as well.

Or you can use a good PS3 Repair guide to fix the problem.

Make sure you check out these reviews of the top PS3 Repair guides first!

Cheers!

Your unit has DC Offset(a damaged amplifier) which is why it keeps shutting down. If you are interested in repairing your Sony, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

I have a red light on my xbox and it told me to look for consumer support. what do i do


How many lights are blinking??

Two blinking red light's on the power button means that your console has insufficient ventilation. The red light will continue flashing until the console cools down.

Let your console cool
  1. Turn off your console.
  2. Let your console cool for one hour.
  3. Turn your console back on.
If the solution worked, your power button should be green.

If your power supply cords are not plugged in securely, you may see one flashing red light when you turn on your Xbox 360 console.

Check out this site and follow along according to the symptoms face by the xbox360.

Well my mom was watching tv and it just shut off so then my mom turned it back on thinking she might have hit the power button accidentally. But when she turns it on it started blinking the green light for...


The flashing light red power light should only stay while the fan cool down for about 1 minute after a power off (remember to always wait before unplugging the TV so the lamp can cool down with the fan). Does that flashing start right away after plugging back the TV after an hour of letting it without AC power.

The red light should flash no longer than 10 sec. This prepare the light to be turned on. If all is OK the green should stay (no longer flashing) and the sound and picture come on.

As for the lamp flashing, i bet it's only 1 time each 5 sec? Or do it group many rapid flash each 5 sec?

Things that can be wrong:
-the fan lamp

-the lamp is not proprely inserted (wait an hour before manipulating it to be sure it cooled down, and use glove to not put body oil on it).

-Lamps is defective and is not operating properly so you can't get to the usual on screen message that recommend to change the lamp.

My playstation just shut off an the red light flashes


do you get a yellow light? i bet you do..

1)Turn off your playstation 3. If you think your ps3 has been caught by the heat, then wait at least 20 minutes and put it back on again
2) Check if there's any loose cable.
3) Try to put out your playstation's hard-drive, and put it back in. You might want to repeat this 2-3 times for better results.

If this did not work
Send your playstation back to Sony

I turn tv on...green light comes on but i get no picture or audio....then light indicator blinks red


Hello!
Lamp or ballast(if lamp has been replaced) is bad.
Explanation: green comes on: system works, waiting for light to shine into light engine: no light is coming out of lamp, system shuts down, then you see red! how to determine: pull the lamp out of the unit's compartment. Inspect lamp: bloated stem? shuttered? reflector is not shiny? Chuck it!
Lamp looks good or just been replaced: try ballast. Close lamp compartment without lamp itself. Make sure, door is shut, as well. Turn unit on and listen close to lamp compartment: good ballast will make a buzzing noise, then stop. You've got "red'! No buzzing: ballast quit. Needs major repair! Lamp must be good, for sure, to get to the last part of diagnostics. Conclusion: more, than 2000 hours of usage: replace lamp first!
Good luck,
Alex.

My ps3 starts to turn on for 1 second. Yellow light flashes, system shuts off, and red light blinks. Help?


HI, this is an emergency shut down, due to overheating. the yellow light is an indicator of a previous overheating issue that has damaged the power unit.

unplug the unit and, let it sit for 10 minutes to cool. after the cool off, plug the unit into the wall socket once more and, power up. if it continues to shut down and, flash the red light, this will confirm a major fault within the power unit. Contact Sony for the replacement of the power unit in this case.

***NOTE(If the unit begins to play normally after the cool-down period, you will need to purchase a cooling device to prevent future overheating issues).

When I turn on the PS3 it starts , 3 beeps then red blinking


Its probably an indicator that their is dust build-up, or over heating so it shuts itself off. Clever what sony did because with xbox 360's they don't, they keep running until it probably melts the internal hardware. Well hell I wouldn't know I just read that from some other opinion. But yeah just wait a bit for it to cool down or spray your ps3 with compressed air for dust.
