Red light problem


If you are getting the red light error this is caused by different things depending on how many red lights you having showing up:

1 red light is the display chip overheating

2 red lights is the whole console overheating and you should try and cool it down to fix this.

3 red lights is the most common error and it is caused by the GPU and the CPU overheating, you will need to stop the heat build up.

4 red lights is just the AV cable not plugged in normally.

To fix the 1, 2 , 3 red light error you will need to send it in and they will fix it for you.

The only problem is that this can take about 4 weeks and you will also have to pay out a repair fee to fix the problem.

The other way is to use a good Xbox 360 Repair guide that will show you how to stop the heat build up on the chips.

There are a few of them about but i have put together a list of the top sites HERE.

I hope this helps and if so please rate it so it can help others.

Turn the console on, displays the xbox screen then screen goes off and a red light starts flashing on console, says system error


is this a single red light? if so, it is a E code error. if there are 2, it is a overheating problem. if its 3, it is a general system error which could be a number of things which you need to figure out the secondary error code to narrow down the problem.
to find the secondary error code:
1. after the red lights start flashing, hold down the "controller sync" button.
2. push the "eject" button 4 times and count the amount of red lights that flash. the red lights will begin to flash rapidly. secondary error codes are only 4 numbers. 1 light = 1, 2 lights = 2, 3 lights = 3 and 4 lights = 4.
after you get the code go to this website, and on the right hand side of the screen under "Xbox Repair Guide" select your PRIMARY error code (1,2,3 or 4 slow flashing red lights). then it will ask you to enter your SECONDARY error code, which is the one you discovered in the steps above.
this will give you a very narrowed down idea of what is wrong with your console, and will give us "questions answerers" a better idea on how to help ya out!

I have to red lights after about ten mins on the xbox 360 and it?


I haven't got an Xbox Myself but I hear that the red lights mean the console has overheated and its a failsafe to prevent damage. It was something ALOT of people got. Also known by gamers as the "RRoD" Or 'Red Ring Of Death". Microsoft released an open letter giving a public warrenty extension to 3 years.... Basically send it back to where you got it under warrenty for the reason of
"General Hardware Failure" and you SHOULD reseave a new one. Sorry if this isn't what you wanted to hear.
Hope it helps!

I suggest you to try DIY Guide that wil explain solving the 2 red lights along with some other common problems of Xbox like Disc Read Error, No Video/picture Problem and most famous RROD.

If you try this method, you won't have to wait for 3-4 weeks and you can enjoy your gaming experience within 2 hours, once you try this guide.

X Box 360


This exact thing is happening to not only me but to also a friend of mine. You will probably notice that the fan kicks on really high and then goes to 2 flashing red lights, this is because the 360 is overheating or thinks its overheating. My friend's 360 starts up with the fan kicked on high and then only plays for a minute or 2, followed by the 2 red lights. If its under warranty send it back to Microsoft, I took mine and my friends 360 apart and replaced the thermal paste with arctic silver, but it kind of only helped a little for mine and not at all for my friends. SEND IT BACK!!!!!!
