If 3 red lights flash, you may have a problem. if not, then your xbox may just be overheated.

Xbox 360s makes a weird sound when it reads a disc and shuts down


Sounds like the drive is very dirty, or going out. Try cleaning it, or just replace it.

My xbox turns on but it go right back off and the adapter stays orange.


It may have one of two problems. If it has an internal battery and it goes flat it will send an alarm then shut down. Secondly it may have an internal fan that has stopped working and as such it shuts down to protect itself.

Half red ligh starts blinking then shuts off


Two possibility , first the 1of the heat sinks may have lost it's thermal seal
to the chips ie G.P.U. or C.P.U. this is more common when consoles
are played vertically . Second but less common the G.P.U. temp feed
connection has become intermittent and tripping a thermal shut down.

Remedy's are

Remove heat sinks for G.P.U. and the C.P.U clean off the old heat sink
compound and replace with new ( articsilver 5 ).

If the console still over heats ( two red lights) then the G.P.U C.P.U
will need to be re-flowed back to the board that normally corrects
the problem in 90% of over heating problems.

If you have any questions feel free to ask.

2 red lights as soon as i turn 360 on!


You might have a faulty wire, this simply means check that all wires are in properly in the back of 360! If this still happens you can send it into a gaming shop and get it fixed for just £50. DIGMAN
