Xbox 360. RED RINGS (top right section only one unlit). Orange light on powerpack. Is powerpack the problem?


Yes, to a certain extent. You need to disconnect the cable from the wall and system, let it cool, and do what you can to get any dust or debris out of the vents on the brick. Reconnect everything and if you still have 3 red rings, you need to contact Microsoft for a repair, as you have a system failure.

My console plays my games, but there is a full red ring? what does this mean?


OUCH! You have the red ring of death! Did you by chance have xbox on it's side for a long period of time instead of flat? If so, that's why. They say there made to do this, just like the old ps2's, It a load of ****. The laser lens circuit will need to be replaced. If you didn't have it on it's side, then you have a bad graphics chip, or cold solder joints, or the motherboard is shot.

Console flashing red, wont do anything,is there a reset


This may be an indicator of a problem with the Xbox 360's hardware. To help confirm this, turn on your console and check the power supply (the big gray brick) light. If the light on it is red, orange, unlit or anything other than green, make sure it's plugged in correctly. If that checks out, try a different outlet. If it still doesn't work, you'll have to buy a new power supply for it.

If the light is green, then you definitely have a hardware problem. The only way to resolve this is to go to this site where you can ship the 360 in for repairs. If you've bought the 360 less than 3 years ago, the repair will be of no cost to you, and Microsoft will even provide the box.

If it's been more than three years since you've purchased your 360, I believe it will cost $93 to have it repaired.

Hope this helps :)

I have three red lights flashing


Well you're either in luck, or in deep trouble. If you have bought your xbox 360 within 3 years, you have a special warranty provided by Microsoft. Call them or go to their support site, and list the problem as having three red light flashing. IMPORTANT it has to have 3 red flashing lights, with only the top right not flashing to have the warranty. They will send instructions and a box, and you just have to wait
