    my xbox suddenly shut off mid game and 2 red lights showed up flashing red on the 1 and 3 controller sections. after some research i found out it meant that it was overheating. I wonder if everyday dust build up is causing it or if my fans are not running at top speed. i can feel warm air flowing out the back of the console but is it enough or is there another issue?

    my Xbox 360 wont work when I press the power button. I think it is because my power supply unit is 100-225 voltage. I got my power supply brick from Africa which is the same power as Europe. I think that is to high for the United States power. Will my Xbox work if I get one made from here

That is a video that shows you how to open your xbox 360. It will void your warranty but I'm assuming its already void since you didn't send it in. If the fans running you should feel hot air coming out of the back of the xbox when its on.

Need to know why the red light keeps coming on

If you purchased it new from a trustworthy retailer just 3 months ago, and are already getting red-ringed, then send it into Microsoft ASAP. The warranty should still be good on it if it was indeed purchased new, and they will fix it or send you a new Xbox depending on the status of the problem. If it's purchased used or from a 3rd party-then you are out of luck and need to get a repair kit, take it to a professional for repair, or get a new Xbox. Usually with the older versions, not getting enough ventilation is due to the fan being placed too close to the motherboard, and the board overheats because not enough air can be drawn through. Get it exchanged if possible.

I have a red light on xbox and e 74

The e74 Xbox error's principal cause is overheating, due to excess heat causing damage to various components, and eventually major malfunctions in the hardware of your console. Why is this heat able to build up and cause damage that leads to the Xbox 360 e74 error? This is actually due to cramped case design and a lack of cooling devices such as fans and heat sinks. Although overheating is ususally a problem for all electronic devices, the Xbox 360 does seem to suffer particularly badly from this issue. unless you have a bit of technical knowledge than the best thing would be to A) fix your Xbox e74 problem by sending your Xbox 360 back to Microsoft for repair or B) buy a new one. there is no easy way to permentaly fix it without taking your xbox apart and the "towel trick" which is where you wrap your xbox in a towell power on until it overheats and shutsdown is only a temporary fix and will cause major damage to your xbox in the long run. fixing yourself consists of stabilizing the heat shields by removing the old brackets and replacing them with new heat paste and bolts so the best thing if you are dedicated to doing it yourself would be to probably buy a manual online. you shouldnt need to pay anything over $30 and make sure you get a full manual because alot of them only deal with the "red ring of death" (which is three red rings)
hope this helps

I got a red light on my power cord, what do I?super

A red light on a power cord for the Xbox 360 usually means it has overheated. Try unplugging the power supply and leaving it alone for awhile to cool down. Make sure to not cover the power supply when you do reconnect it to keep it well ventilated. If this doesn't work you may have to replace the faulty device.

My xbox has 1/3 of ah red ring, what does that mean?

This means that the xbox 360 has overheated. Try not playing the xbox for a while, then see what you can do. If the game seems grainy, then i prefer to go to Gamestop. The circuits may be overheated dur to you playing so much.

Guitar Hero Flashing Sensor Lights

Hi there,

Im guessing due to needing batteries that your Guitar is the Wireless type ?!

Have you correctly Synchronised your Xbox 360 with the Guitar controller ?

to do this, Turn on the Xbox and Guitar press the round "sync" button on the bottom of the guitar, next to its Ethernet port, and also press the small round sync button on the Xbox 360 (located to the left of the memory slots on the front face) at the same time, the rings of light on both the Xbox and the guitar will Turn in a clockwise motion letting you know they are synching, after that the Xbox will assign the guitar to a controller slot. then it should work.

If this doesn't work then im afraid your guitar may have a faulty wireless chip, which would require you to get a replacement.

hope it gets sorted !
