    My PS3 is doing the same thing! I took the hard drive and connect it to my pc by way of hard encasement. I turned on the power on the encasement to see if could salvage what i had on the ps3 drive, The drive started to beep and would not stop. At the same time it would beep i would here a click. That to me sounds like the hard drive died. So i said cool, i'll get a new hard for 70.00 bucks and not have to spend 150.00 sending to sony. Replaced the hard drive, thru it on the ps3 would not work, did the same flashing red light and turned it self off. The error code problably needs to be reset. Think about it how could the hard drive go bad and another piece of hardware go bad......I think it needs to be reset.. It's like on a fail non working safe mode?!!!!!!

My ps3 has stopped turning on. The light turns to green, the console begins to start up, then it flashes yellow, beeps and goes to red.


My PS3 had the same problems. I found that if I disconnected the HDMI cable and installed the cable with the 3 phone jacks, Red,Yellow, and White, that it came on and has been playable since. Before that I got the YLOD, red screen display, pressed the on button for 3 beeps and got the reset. That worked for about 30min then went to a blank screen. Gave up and was ready to send it to the shop, but then as a last resort I connected the other cable and it has worked ever since. Must have been in the HDMI cable.

I think the video cable for my xbox is messed up. Why does it keep showing up these little circle things? Whenever I turn on my xbox it doesn't come up anything but a black screen with little circles...


NOT HD: Make sure red goes to red, white on white, and yellow on yellow, also make sure the switch that is on the xbox wire plug says TV not HD.

HD TV: Make sure red on red, white on white, yellow on yellow, blue on blue, green on green, etc. Also make sure the switch that is on the xbox wire plug says HD not TC
