My PS3 switched itself off mid game, it now will not stay on and the red light blinks.


The blinking red light is also known as the Red Light of Death (RLOD) similiar to the xbox 360s Red Ring of Dead (RROD)



Step 1: Check Your Console
One of the biggest causes of the blinking red light problem is placing the console with the fan vents sitting against the floor or up against a wall where air cannot flow freely in and out of the console.
So, start by checking your console and making sure those fans are not blocked off. If you notice a lot of dust on the console, clean it off right away. Once you fix the blinking red light of your ps3 and your console is working again, you will want to keep the vents clean and unobstructed.


Step 2: Test the Hard Drive
Now, find the hard drive on the side of your console and remove it. Wait a few seconds and replace it. In some cases this may fix PS3 red light. If you still see the blinking red light, there is a chance you have more substantial damage inside your unit. It could possibly be a problem with overheating which causes problems with the motherboard, especially if you had your console on the floor or up against a wall.


Step 3: Unplug
The last in-home remedy to fix PS3 red light blinking is to unplug the console from the wall for about half an hour and then plug it back in. This doesn't always work, but some people have had success with problems other than overheating. If it doesn't work, then you have more substantial damage to your console motherboard.
Yet, that doesn't mean the console is useless! Continue on to find a permanent solution to the problem.


Step 4: Check Your Warranty
The next step you can do to fix red light of death is to see if you still have a valid warranty for your gaming console. If you do, then you can contact Sony and mail it in for a fix. Note that this will take at least 6 weeks before you can expect your ps3 back and chances are high you will receive a refurbished unit rather than the one you originally sent in. Also note that Sony will delete the memory from your unit so you will lose everything saved in the console.
If you don't have a valid warranty or you don't want to lose everything saved inside the console, bypass Sony altogether. Without a warranty they charge $150-300 or more and often the unit you receive back will have the same red light of death blinking problem in a short period of time.

My xbox360 has one red light flashing


1 red light usualy means hardware failure. There is another error code you can get of of xbox. While machine is on push the the sync button on console and while sync is pushed in press eject button. The lights on the console will give you youre first digit. Theres 4 in total. Repeat pressing the sync and eject button till you have got the four digits and console is back to the red light.
When getting codes the lights will light up. 1 red light means 1 2 means 2 and so on. 4 red lights means 0. Let us know and ill get back to you.

PS3 flashing is not hard to fix. Do you want to fix it by yourself instead of pay $150 checking to Sony? Here's the solution :

Xbox 360 red light four red lights on the front of console


Yes you can fix it. Four red lights on is an indication that the video cable is not plugged into the console. I suggest you check and see if the pins in the cable and unit are not damaged and the cable is fully in the AV port. If all is well, than borrow another cable from a friend and try it in your console or try yours in theirs.

1 red light flashing


1 red light indicates that there is general hardware related problem with the console, 2 red lights indicate the overheating of the console, 3 red lights indicate the red ring of death and 4 red lights indicate that you need to tighten your AV console wire. If you get any of the problems and your system is under warranty, you can ship your console directly to Microsoft and you will get back your Xbox 360 red ring fixed by the manufacturer, however it might take more than a month and you will also have to bear the additional shipping charges. If your warranty period is over, you will have to pay additional amount of $140, if you choose to send the Xbox 360 to Microsoft for red ring fix. Further you will have to also bear the shipping amount and wait for at least a month for getting your console back. However, you can avoid this and can repair your console your own. There are many good guides available at Internet and you can go through any one of them and can fix Xbox 360 red ring problems your own.
