XBox 360 console is subject to a number of technical problems that can
render it unusable. Many of the issues can be identified by a series
of red lights flashing on the face of the console; the three flashing
red lights (nicknamed the “Red Ring of Death”) being the most
infamous. There are other issues that arise with the console, such as
discs becoming scratched in the drive and “bricking” of consoles due
to dashboard updates.

Light YLOD Fault
Some people try to repair this problem themselves, possibly using a
quick ‘guide’ on the Internet , but unless you have a professional
re-ball/re-flow set-up, you are almost definitely going to have a very
short term fix, and will make a professional fix much more difficult
in the future, if not impossible – also – if your going to attempt it
, make sure you don’t heat the GPU too much as it will damage the
If your Playstation 3 experiences a flashing yellow light, or the
lights going from green to yellow, then blinks red, then we can fix it
for you. This is usually a problem with the motherboard, it’s the
PlayStation’s equivalent of the XBox 360 3 red light fault - the GPU
develops ‘cold’ solder joints underneath , which we can fix for
much less than Sony charges (£140) and also won’t lose all your game
saves or downloads .

As with XBox and PS3 there is
no 100% success rate – occasionally the board has suffered ‘ circuit
pads/tracks lifting ‘ – this problem is not repairable and the
motherboard would be rendered useless. Again – cooling is the key to a
long life .. always ensure a good airflow .. hoover out the vents
every month or so .. if you’re using it for extended gaming , give the
machine a break every now and then – press and hold the eject button
while switching it on (not 60G) .. this runs the fans full until it’s
