    Many thanks for advise, I'll probably have it repaired as i can be a little heavy handed with light electronics, I am a heavy engineer with an unhealthy interest in corrosion damage to heavy rolling stock.

Over time this can happen your top screen has started to go. you can either fix it yourself by buying a new top screen or having someone service it for you.

if you want to tackle it by yourself then we would be more then happy to share the steps involved in doing so.

Reads games as DVDS But when read as a game

Quite possibly the laser is becoming weaker, which causes read issues. First thing to try is simply putting a cleaner disc in and running it a few times.

Unreadable Disc says reading and then open tray

The easiest and most permanent fix would be to install a new drive. The process is simple and does not require alot of technical skill. Get your unit back up and running good for like fifty dollars or so.

Xbox 360 flickers across screen

it is your av cable however the components in the cable get a small static boost when u are using your controller so it becomes an intermittent fault ie;....when in game vidios or watching dvds, u rarely use the controller so u dont see the flickering and u only see it when in game play because u are in constant contact with the controlls and the components inside the av cable recieve a small static boost causing the interference.

Playstation 3

Hey Hagster,

Generally, the noise level produced by any optical device - including a PS3 - will depend on the work load being processed at any given time. The larger the work load, the louder the PS3 may become. Additionally, some users have reported that the sound level generated by PS3's appears to vary depending on the model you own. This may be due to the fact that at least two different types of case fans were used during production, but remember that environmental conditions may still have a direct impact on your PS3's performance as well. What you are encountering may not necessarily be a hardware defect, but instead a result of the unit’s hardware configuration.

As long as your PS3 is not making any unusual clicking, grinding or whining noises during Blu-ray playback, you should be relatively safe. If you're still not quite sure, remember that you can always speak with Sony directly for more information. A technical support agent at their toll-free hotline should be able to provide you with further suggestions or information on how to minimize any noise during playback.

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Disc unreadable

theres a known problem with the hitashi dvd drive in the xbox 360.
the only solution to this is a home repair job, look up on youtube on how to do this, although this isnt recommended as it voids warranty.
so the best way is definitely just to ring microsoft and send ur console in for repair.

Non-working top screen

If you see lines on either screen of your Nintendo DS Lite during game play, then it is likely one or more of the components that create the image on the screen are damaged. This can occur if there has been an impact -- such as being dropped or hit -- to the Nintendo DS Lite's screens. Phone 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available repair options and they will be grateful to assist you at any time of need.Important Note: If you are seeing lines on the screen that slowly fade away after turning off the system, this is normal.
