Three lights flash red on the Ring of Light (RoL) on the front of your Xbox 360 console. The upper-right quadrant light is the only light that does not flash red. The three flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with your Xbox 360 console.

You can try one or two things.

1. Turn on your xbox and check to see if the power supply light is green. If it is green there is a problem with the system. If it is red it means you should check your connections and restart the xbox.

2. These rings have a tendency of meaning that there is a problem with the system itself. Most companies sell extra insurance to cover this "ROL" Ring of life. You can contact Microsoft by calling them. The number is usually listed on the back of the video game booklets.

I wish you the best and I hope this resolved your problem

Happy Gaming

Why does my xbox 360 kepps freezing when i play games?


360's tend to lock up before the "red rings of death". You get this when the system overheats and has problems with the solder coming loose. Mine took a little over a weak before it got the red rings after it kept freezing after a few min.'s of playing.

It could be overheating because the fan is not getting enough air out. try cleaning the console itself outside and using can of compressed air to get any buildup in the vent holes and fan cleared. There are a few FAQS on this site to learn about a few tricks.

feel free to comment if you have any questions. Hope this helped and remember you have a three year waranty on your xbox for the red ring and E74 error!

1 red ring has appeared, game play grainy


This means that you have either played it so much, that the circuits inside the xbox have been damaged. Luckily, you didn't get 3-4 rings, which means it is unable to play. So i suggest to go to Game stop for repairs. I'm just giving a suggestion.

I can see the menu screen but after half an hour of demo playing the console switches off and shows a red ring. games arent playing either


if it is 2 red rings it is overheating. moved it to a place that is not confined. or get an after market fan add on. if it is more than 2 rings, you need to send it in for repair

Why is my xbox freezing when my xbox does not have red ring of death?


its probably overheating try using a fan constantly on it when you play. if that doesn't work i bet the red ring will show up. if that happens call 1800myxbox they have a step by step instruction system for you to send it down and get it fixed. but keep your hard drive at your home. hope this helps
-good luck

I play a new game for two or three days then it gets scarched


Are you moving the console while playing? If so, the game disc can get damaged easily.

If not, you will need to contact Microsoft about this problem. It sounds like the reader is damaging the disc. Unlike other systems (PS3, Wii) disc readers, the xbox does not have rubber pads around the reader which prevent scratching and damaging discs.

Three red rings


Go online to XBOX.COM and register your Xbox (will need your serial number). Microsoft will then mail you a mailing box with instructions (at their cost). It will be shipped to McAllen TX (mine was and was delivered to them today).

But next unit will not be Microsoft related.

XBox 360 freezing- Not what you think


Your system is headed for the dreaded red ring w/ three red rings. My system started doing the same thing just before this happend. If you have a service plan with it i would suggest returning it and getting a new one.

I tried all the there little tricks as well deleted everything off my harddrive all that good stuff i think it made mine worse. Cuz after all that i turned it back on and bam three red lights and no picture or sound.
