2 RED LIGHTS ON XBOX 360


Two red lights sometimes means power to console troubles. There is a code you can get from machine and this can direct you better to cause of failure. When the machine is on press the sync button then the eject button at the same time. The 2 red lights will go and lights will appear and this will be youre first digit of the 4 digit code. Do this 4 times. 1 red light is 1. 2 is 2. 3 is 3. 4 red lights is 0. Let us know the code and i may be able to put you in the right direction.

RED LIGHT OF DEATH!
The three flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with your Xbox 360 motherboard or power supply.You can test power supply with a voltmeter from power supply wires to the connections on the motherboard. If no power or low power, the supply is bad. If there is plenty of power, then motherboard could have bad capacitor or chipset on it causing the problems. You can test those with an ohmmeter to see which component is not the same.

Red lights appear on consule what do i do


gavphilipson

To clarify are you getting 4 red lights or 3 red lights

If it is 4 light then this is just a system error that you video is not connected right. If you have you AV and/or HDMI cable connected to the XBOX then most like you have a bad cable. If you have tried another cable then most likely then there is something wrong with the video connector on the system.

If it is 3 light then you have the "red ring of death" issue. This is a general hardware error. If you go through the red ring repair steps this would fix the issue.

Hope this helps

My xbox box has 3 red lights flashing... i know there are different types of error how do i know which on i have?


after turning it on, and seeing it display 3 red lights, hold the sync up button and tap eject.

The lights will change to a different pattern. This represents a number.
The number is four digits, so you'll have to hold sync and tap eject FOUR TIMES, remembering each pattern.

Pattern numbers are as follows:

4 red lights = 0
3 red lights = 3
2 red lights = 2
1 red lights = 1

Most common ones are 0020 and 0120.

What is the problem when red light is appear?


the other tech is correct but theres also other causes. if 4 red lights are flashing making a full ring your av plug at the back of the xbox is not plugged in. if it has 2 red flashing lights yor unit is overheating. 3 red flashing lights means your cpu is unstuck and is stuffed. 1 red flashing light is a HDD issue

3 red lights appear - XBOX


Your console is most likely in need of repair.

The 3 Red Lights (known as the red ring of death) is caused when the unit overheats, and burns out some integral parts on the motherboard.

Call Microsoft, if your Xbox is less than 3 years old, they'll set you up with an exchange. It'll take 4 weeks, and you'll have to pay for shipping your broken Xbox, but it'll get fixed.

As far as I know, there's no way to permanently repair the Red ring of death yourself.

3 red flashing lights


When you turn on the console, look at the light on the power supply. The power supply light should illuminate green even if the three lights on the Ring of Light flash red. If the power supply is button is red than you need to replace the battery or check the connections.

The three flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with your Xbox 360 console. If you are experiencing this problem, you can submit a console-repair request online.

Hopefully your system is still under warranty.
