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.

A word of warning before attempting any home repair solution:


I hope this helps.

I disconnected the pump and need to know where the red black aND WHITE wires go

Hi, this is John the Hayward tech. You say the wire colors are Red, Black and White. Does not seem that the wires colors were correct from the start. Not knowing your voltage let me clarify some things. Normally if you have 115volts coming into the pump you wire colors should be Red or Black to L1 White to L2 and a green ground to the green ground screw. If you have 230volts coming into the pump the two hot leads are normally red and black with a green ground. The red and black wires go to L1 and L2 does not matter red or black. The green goes to the green ground screw.

My cb has red and black wires coming out the

The Red is the Hot (+12v) and should be fused to the battery.
The Black is the ground, this should be ran directly to the battery, if not you may get engine noise.

I had to change the three prong wire and replace with four prong

If you are converting from 3 to 4 prong service, that is fairly simple and should be done as follows:
If you purchased a pre-terminated cord that has a molded plug on one end and four wires with lugs on the other then that is what you have to attach to your dryer. Start by pulling the dryer out far enough to gain easy access to the back panel. Depending on the model, you will need to find the place where the cord feeds through the back and feed the new wire through that opening ( there should be some kind of cable clamp that guides and clamps that cable through the back panel). Once fed through, look for the terminal block on the back of your dryer. You will have at least 3 terminals that should be color coded red, black white or green) Start by installing the red to red, black to black and white to white ( or green) and then take the green wire end of the cord and look for a ground stud on the back of the dryer. There should be a terminal or sheet metal screw that you can attach that green wire to the dryer. The green wire is a safety ground that bonds the dryer to earth ground and provides a path to ground through the dryer chassis should you develop a short top ground. That path is provided to protect you so that you don't become the path from power to ground. Hope that helps...
Just remember to do all this wiring with the cord unplugged from the power source...

GE Profile power cord

White is the neutral circuit and it goes to the center connection of the terminal block on the dryer. Red and Black are "hot" wires and they go to the connectors on the ends of the block, doesn't matter which color is on which side. Green is the ground and it goes to the cabinet ground.
Post back if you have any questions.
