3 red lights and one green one in the middle HELP

Our x-box has three red lights around the circle and one green one in the middle and won't show the picture on the screen when we turn it on. We downloaded a couple of demos and one movie from Netflix recently. We wanted to go and take off some things but now it is not even turning on. IS it because the hard drive is too jammed??? Help what can we do? red lights

If you try it without the HDD and it works so the problem is just withthe HDD call the support and ask for a replacement, but if it does thesame regardless the HDD connected or not it will be directly a faultwithe actual Xbox 360 console also conatct the support but this time tosend your console to get repaired or exchanged for you.

Mostof the times it's a hard drive issue. So if the console works finewithout the hard drive attached, you can just call the Xbox support andask for a new hard drive (If this hard drive is the one that came withyour Xbox).

  • turn on and wrap in 3 towels and let sit for 20 to 30 min
  • unwrap all towels (xbox should be really really hot)
  • turn off console and let it cool for 15 to 20 min
  • turn on console and play for about another week or two maybe longer.

The power chord with the box is still available at most gaming stores. I bought used ones at GameStop about a month ago for about 30 bucks.

Also note that the newer power cable still works on older model 360's.

My xbox360 has a red circle instead of a green circle theirfore will not work what can this be


Three flashing red lights around the Xbox 360 power button (nicknamed the "Red Ring of Death"), represent an internal problem that requires service. Warning signs may include freeze-ups, graphical problems in the middle of gameplay, such as checkerboard or pinstripe patterns on the screen, and sound errors, and the console only responds to pressing the power button to turn it off.

This error code is usually caused by failure of one or more hardware components, although it can indicate that the console is not receiving enough power from the power supply, which can either be due to a faulty power supply or if the power supply cable is not fully inserted into the console.


Distinct from the General Hardware Failure is a similar-looking error warning where four red lights appear, in which case the console does not detect an AV cable is plugged in. The four lights can sometimes also be seen when power surges or very brief power outages occur while the console is running, in which the console needs to be unplugged and plugged back in again to reset the error. Two red lights appear when the system is overheated.

Screen blury,very pink,green edging on picture almost colorless!


This would be a convergence issue you can run the convergence setup that is in your user manual if that does not work you are going to need service.


thanks

No problem happy to help. This can get kind of complicated but I will try to walk you through it. Ok in your original post you said that you cleaned the lenses. There should be three of them these are the top of the tubes. One is the red one for blue and the green one is in the middle. they look like large cylinders. If I could see a picture of the unit when it is on it would be a lot easier. But the easiest way to get to the mechanical adjustment fort the tubes is through the front. Below the screen it should have a cloth front. This is a panel that is covering the tubes. remove this panel (there will be screws in the back and the panel should pop off.) This is the really tricky part below each tube there is a board that is attached to the tube. and above that board usually about three to six inches you should see three round circles with a kind of lip on each one these are the mechanical adjustments. Before you do anything to these we need to find the screen voltage adjustment box it is about 3inX3in usually black colored. and it will have six little knobs three on top and three on the bottom. These can be adjusted using a screw driver. One set of three will be labeled focus and the other screen. They should also have a label next to each knob saying the color B for blue G for green and R for red. It sounded like your green was off too much green maybe make small adjustment very small adjustments to the green focus and the green screen. Usually it is right for brighter left for dimmer if you adjust it to much the tube you are adjusting will go into overdrive and the whole tv will shut off. Adjust it until it looks better then depending on how it looks after you adjust the screen and focus will will have to play around with it it is a trail and error procedure. Then move on to the mechanical adjustment for the tubes the circle looking things. What i usually do is put it on a cross-hatch or some kind of picture that is stationary and has line s in it it makes it a lot easy than doing it on a moving picture. Use the title screen to a dvd movie or something like that. when you are looking at the tubes when the tv is on you will see the different colored tubes red, blue, and green once you have the green tube adjusted through the screen voltage box mentioned earlier to your liking then adjust the mechanical adjustments on the blue and red tubes use the lip on the circles to turn it left or right in small measures. you will see how each circle moves it in a different way. What you are trying to do is over lap the blue and red on top of the green. You will have to play around with this to find tune it it can be very difficult. Let me know if this helps if you still need help after you try this their is another route that could be used but it is hard to be absolutely sure without actually seeing the unit. Good luck
