4 flashing red lights around ring. Game has sound but no picture on the screen

hi, 4 flashing red lights indicates a fault with the video lead, now if you unplug the lead from the back of the xbox and switch it on you should get the same 4 red lights so try that just to check.

now unplug the lead from the telly and your xbox and then refit it make sure you push it in the back of the xbox far enough, if after doing that you still have the problem then this means your going to need to replace the video lead.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

please rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Hi, I was trying to clean the memory chips on my xbox 360 elite's motherboard -- cause I had put some thermal grease on them, but I forgot that thermal grease remover (Arctic Silver) should be put on any...

Hi 4 red rings means the video lead is not put in the back of the console properly so take the leads out and try them again.

if they are fitted correctly switch it on and when you get the flashing red lights do the following

when all lights are flashing hold down the little white round wireless button and keep holding it down whilst you do the following.

whilst holding the button down press the eject button on the console then write down how many red lights are lit up.
then hole the white button down again and press eject and write it down, you need to do this 4 times and it will give you a code that you can give to me and i can then tell you exactly what the fault is ok

so it will be something like this
4 red lights
4 red lights
2 red lights
1 red light

let me know the code then i can tell you exactly whats wrong and what you need to do to solve the problem ok

I have taken my xbox 360 apart,cleaned it, put new thermal coating on it, checked all the componets on the motherborde to make sure that they won't lose, and put it in a place with good air flow but the 2...

2 red lights meaning the chips are overheating. This could be the heatsink does not have a good contact with the chip. Don't put too much thermal paste. just a very thin layer.

Red lights are on but only two and they are opposite each other

if its just 2 red lights it is generally a 'AV' lead connection fault ?
the lead that goes from the xbox to the tv (even if using a HDMI lead)
un plug it & plug it back in & try again !

Hope this rectifys the problem ??

thumbs up if it does :-)

MY Power Supply light is blinking orange and xbox 360 want turn on

I hate it when people put "Red ring of Death" for a ORANGE flashing light on the power bar and actually a red ring on the front of the Xbox (which then would mean the red ring of death)!

I just fixed this problem for a friend. They had a contoller charging lead plugged in to the front which had a bad connection in it. Thats all it was so I just unplugged the charging lead and it worked.

So Unplug everything except the power and see if it works 1st, if it does then plug things back in one by one and see when it starts to flash and thats your problem lead there.
