4-Red Lights on your Xbox 360?
When you power on your 360 and you get a complete ring of red flashing lights this may indicate an error with your AV lead. After ensuring the AV lead (lead connecting your 360 to your display) is plugged in, try using a different AV lead before sending your console into us.
Mobile Phone not charging?
If your phone seems to be dead and will not charge or turn on, try using a different charger. Chargers can blow fusses and become faulty, particularly third party chargers. We recommend using official chargers from your devices manufactures.
PS3 not showing on your display?
To reset the video output on your PS3, put the PS3 into stand-by (Just displaying a solid Red Light). Then press and hold the power button, it will beep once as it turns on then beep again after 5 seconds. After the second beep the output will be reset. This often needs to be done when changing from AV to HDMI connection.
If you power on your 360 to find it displays an E68 error screen, there may be an error with your hard-drive. Ensure your HDD is fully inserted before powering on; if the error is still present try powering on without your hard drive connected.
