Red rings on the xbox 360 wont connect to live wont let me recover gamertag

The red rings are a fatal Xbox 360 error. There is no way to solve this problem except by having a qualified professional perform a reflow to the problem Chip. This can usually be determined based on the number of quadrants lit.
  • 1 Red Quadrant is usually System Error. A "E##" error code will be displayed on the screen. Most common is E74.
  • 2 Red Quadrants indicates the console is overheating.
  • 3 Red Quadrants indicates hardware failure. A secondary error code can be acquired by pressing and holding the sync button then while continuing to hold the sync button repeatedly pressing the eject button and noting the number of red quadrants that becomes lit.
  • 4 Red Quadrants indicates that either no A/V (Audio / Video ) Connection is available.
Good Luck! Let me know if you have any further questions. If you tell me which number of quadrants or the error code I can point you in the right direction.

What do i do when i get one red ring?

If you mean that all four quadrants of the ring are flashing red, check your A/V cable. Make sure all cables are nice and snug on both the Xbox and the Television.

If only 1 red light is showing, flashing or not, check any error messages listed on the screen and try Xbox support

Two red lights

if your x box is displaying a red segment on quadrant 1 and quadrant 3 you are suffering from an over heating issue. Your xbox should be shutting off the CPU and the GPU (fancy terms you dont need to wory about unless you want too) and flash Q1 and Q3 till unit has sufficiently cooled.

Xbox 360 red lights

2 red lights flashing is'nt too bad of a deal. just reposition your xbox 360 to a place where more airflow can get to it. plus, dont have anything that gives off heat near the xbox 360, thats vary important to give it room for cool air. it worked for me
