I've got mine all apart because of the unplayable disc error I had to fix. Let me check to see if there's a fuse or something inside that's blown on you...

Is my wii turned off? I pressed the power button but there is still a yellowish light. And then the opening for the disks has the blue light that won't shut off. So is it turned off or is something...


The Wii can stay connected to the internet to keep itself and apps, such as the weather and news, current. If you have the yellow light and the glowing blue disc slot, this feature is on.
You can go to the Wii's settings to turn the feature off.

Three red lights flashing means that there is a hardware fault.
Check your power supply light 1. Turn on your Xbox 360 console. 2. Take a look at the light on the power supply.
The power supply light is located on the end of the rectangular box in the middle of your power cord. If your power supply light is green

Unplug and reconnect your power supply. Here’s how:
Disconnect the power cord from the back of your console. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet and from the power supply unit
Reconnect the power cord to the console. Then plug the power cord back into the wall outlet and the power supply unit.

My 360 does not have power to console. the light


Have you tried removing all extra accessories?

Xbox.com states:

Orange or Yellow Indicator Light

When the Xbox 360 power supply light is orange or yellow this means there is no problem with your console but the power supply can't supply it with power.

To remedy this problem, first try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console and unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. You'll also want to uplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord.

Wait for about five minutes and then reconnect everything. You might also want to try plugging it into another wall outlet without an extension cord.

If you are still getting an orange or yellow indicator light, then something is at fault with the Xbox 360 power supply. If this is the case, contact the Xbox 360 customer support to get a new one.

My Xbox 360 won't turn on. The power supply has an orange/yellow light but my console does not turn on... any suggestions?


Make sure you have pushed the lead in the back of your xbox all the way! once pushed in the back you should hear it click, if the power supply is from another xbox differant year in manufacturing date, then the power supply would not be compatable as the plug in the back would not push in all the way.

PS3 shuts off right as its turned on


Hi, this is heat related and, this issue may have damaged your power supply board. if the red lights continue to flash after you have unplugged this unit for 5 minutes, this will confirm power board failure and, you will need to replace this circuit board.

You can purchase a replacement power supply unit at this link below and i also advise to purchase a cooling adapter for your system as well. this will prevent this form happening again in the future.
