Where can we get the a download to format a disc

Your PS2 doesn't need to format a disc. It's asking for a disc with Playstation 2 type software on it. In other words, it's looking for a PS2 game.

If you're putting a PS2 game in there and it's asking for one -- your laser is going out. It thinks the disc you put in is not a disc of PS2 type (PS2 format). You can find a quick tutorial on confirming this is the problem, and the laser (and repair) at the following page:

Red light on power supply on. Nothing happening on the x box console. dead.


The blinking red light usually indicates hardware failure. If your Xbox is still under warranty you should contact microsoft have them send you a box with free postage and send them your console. They will locate and fix the problem for you.

If your console is not under warranty anymore there are a few things you can try.

First remove the hard drive and try booting up your console. If it says no drive found shut the console down and put the hard drive back into place. If it works after that then the issue was just a drive error which is now corrected. If the light is blinking again then the drive itself is bad.

Second turn the xbox off for 60 seconds by using the switch on the back. Now hold down the eject button and turn the power switch back on while your still holding the eject button. This can help with overheating issues.

If these simple fixes dont resolve the problem then you will need to contact microsoft and ask about repair cost's. As fixing it yourself would require experience in working on gaming consoles.

Ds lite on off fault

There is no safe way to bypass the switch permanetly. The easiest solution is to purchase a broken DS from the likes of eBay and switch the motherboards.

Then sell on the broken DS (with your motherboard) for parts as there is alwasy someone looking for different bits to repair there own model.

My playstation3 says harddisk not found on the console

You will have to either install a new HDD or call sony ( look under the contact us info on the ps3 website) and have it repaired. You will have to get them to send you a box and then send it to them. Hopefully you are under warranty, otherwise it will cost approx $180

X box wont start

E74 is a video error. First thing to do is check your video cables and ensure they are all seated properly. IF that does not fix the problem try changing your cables out or switching to a different type, ie: switch to HDMI or from HDMI to the AV Cable. However, I just experienced this very same problem a few weeks back and was unable to get anything to work and in the end was relegated to sending the Xbox back to Microsoft for repairs. If you are still under the original 1 year warranty it will obviously be a free repair or if you have an extended warranty from the store you bought it at they should be able to handle it for you. If not it will be $99 for Microsoft if you set the repair through their website or $119 if you call the toll free number and have a person help set up the repair.

Here is a recent article on the E74 error that shows the vast majority of the people who have had the problem got it AFTER the NXE update.

Good Luck

Ps3 doesnt turn on


Here is how you can get your cd out. Try replacing the power adaptor. If that doecsn't work, you'll need to contact Sony or the place you purchased it for the power issue (maybe a unit replacement).

"I just want to let everyone know that I had the same problem. This isn't a fix to make the machine work again. This is a fix that will let you get a disc stuck in the machine out when the ps3 won't power on. Turn the machine power off via the switch in the back. Hold the power button on the front of the machine down for about 15-30 seconds. Then, without letting go of the power button on the front of the machine, turn the switch on in the back. This made my machine power on for about 20 seconds, just long enough for me to get the disc out of machine. I could then take the ps3 back to the retailer I purchased it from.
Just to clue everyone in on a possible cause of this problem, the woman from Sony techical support, the one who told me this trick, said that this is happening only when playing Activision games. For me it was Call of Duty 4. " Let me know what happens. Binary Bob
