Yes, it is fixable. The way to fix it is to do the X-Clamp Fix on the mainboard first. Then right after, if it still doesn't work, you should do the Heatgun fix afterwards. The Heatgun fix is where you heat up the mainboard to fix broken solder-joints. You should use a circular motion and not keep heating up the same area for too long, or else it'll damage the mainboard even further. Good luck.

If you hear sound but no picture then your graphic chip has got separated from your motherboard, this is not a simple fix. receommend you to look for a local repair shop that can handle game console repairs or send it to xbox.com

Have the red ring


DO NOT OPEN YOUR XBOX 360 CONSOLE!
Microsoft will fix it for free with free shipping. Takes about 2 weeks.
There is video and different ways to fix it online but it will happen again with those half baked solutions. Sometimes 1 week sometimes 6 months but it always happens again. Also, Microsoft adds another year to your warranty and a card to a free month to xbox live.

Xbox 360, when i turn it on 1 red light comes on, then when fan kicks in 2 red lights come on & it just cuts off


DO NOT OPEN THE CONSOLE!!!!!!!! Microsoft will fix it for free!

Alright, the one red light means it has a "Hardware Failure".

Since its 1 Red light it is known as the "e74 Error" Which lucky for you Microsoft will fix for free.

The 2 Red lights mean Your Xbox 360 is overheating.

My xbox got three red rings about 1 year and a half ago and i just now tried to use it and the game came up on my tv but the screen was split in half and showed the same thing on each side and the screen...


3 red lights on the Xbox 360 is the most common error and it means "General Hardware failure. To fix this you need to stop the amount of heat that the GPU and the CPU is taking.

To do this you can use the recommended guide that has been on the market for 3 years or you can send it in.

The other issue you mention will be the GPU overheating you need to stop the heat build up getting to the chips.

Xbox 360 lights are green but it says mode not supported on the tv screen -no picture at all -even tried another tv and heard the audio at times but no picture-all cords intact-no ventalation problem...


Bad very bad.
It's bad solder connections under the G.P.U.
Trust me I know, I re-flow about 2-3 a day .
but the units are normally about 2 1/2 -3 years old
and 60% are Microsoft reworks. you can tell this by
a black dot on the safety seal .


You have 2 options Fix it you self , if done right you should
get 2-9 months sometimes more.

Or have a shop re-flow the G.P.U. . cost 80.00 or so.
you should get 3-12 month hard to say with these unit.

A. You have the wrong inputs on your audio and video, do you know anyone who may've tampered with that? IE older brother, dad, etc.

B. Your 360 has the dark screen malfunction, but if that was the case, you should be able to hear audio.
