This is what is known as the red ring of death and plauges a lot of xbox 360s. It means that there is a "general hardware failure" and there isnt much you can do about it. if you have a warranty on it, return it. if not, call 18004MYXBOX. Microsoft should cover the warranty and will give you a box to send the 360 off in. The only downside is that this process is often slow but you usually get sent a new xbox back.

Two red lights on xbox 360


hey Cmull
i had this problem before because my xbox 360 was old, but this fix is only if ur out of warranty because it involves you openning up your xbox 360. It also isnt the case if your xbox 360 isnt very old, it probably means ur fans are finished. Well, back to the solution you take apart your xbox 360, just do a google search on how to dissasemble your xbox 360 if you already dont know how to do so. Just take off all the covers until you see this

then just get and air compressor or something to blow all of the dust out. i did it for mine and it never happened ever again. Enjoy.

2 red lights fans don;t work


Hey Marsh2Man,


It's not your fans that's causing the problem. It's the XBOX itself. The Xboxes generally overheat and this has been a big problem for Microsoft. Alot of companies are actually reflowing these system, reheating the solder under the chips allowing them to connect back down to the points on the board.


You will need your system reflowed. Contact a repair shop.
