Ouch. Ok red light means it's a hardware malfunction. Talk to Microsoft about it and they should send you another one for free because it's not your fault, it's the factories fault. The red lights are more commonly known as the "Rings of Death."

Xbox 360 power button light keeps flashing and disc tray does not open


Hi when the power button flashes red if you hold down the little round white button under the dvd tray and keep holding it down then press the open button for dvd then it will flash a number of lights write this down.
it will be flashing 1 2 3 or 4 lights so write it down then hold down the white button again and press the draw open button again and write down how many again.
do this 4 times all together and tell me what code it has given you then i can tell you exactly what the problem is

so for instance
you hold down the little white wireless button and keep holding it down then press the open button for the dvd tray and say 4 lights are flashin
so write down 4
then hold white button down again and press open button again
it may flash 4 again
then do it again and it may flash 2 lights
then again and it may flash 2 again

when you have gotten these 4 codes post me a message and tell me exactly what they tell you and in the correct order so it may look like this
4 lights flashing
2 lights flashing
1 light flashing
2 lights flashing

if you look at where the button is where you turn it on well you have the green light in the middle well around this is four outer lights that light up red their are 4 of these 2 at the top and 2 at the bottom either side of the green light, their the ones that flash green when its spinning rounf with green lights so write this code down then ill be able to tell you exactly what the fault is ok

let me know then i can assist you further ok

Ps3 says cannot start the correct hard disk was not found


try safemode
hold down the power button while the console is in standby. the light will go from red to green.it will beep once flash green beep again, and then beep a third time. after the third beep the light will turn red.

once the light is red, take your finger off the power button and place it back on the power button. the light will go from red to green, beep once flash and then beep twice quickly. after it does the double beep, take your finge roff. the light will stay green and you'll get a screen asking you to connect the controller.

after connecting the controller, try option 3, or whichever option is restore filing system. this can possibly correct media loading and will 95% of the time fix the console when it freezes before loading up your icons(the xmb)

3 red flashing lights


When you turn on the console, look at the light on the power supply. The power supply light should illuminate green even if the three lights on the Ring of Light flash red. If the power supply is button is red than you need to replace the battery or check the connections.

The three flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with your Xbox 360 console. If you are experiencing this problem, you can submit a console-repair request online.

Hopefully your system is still under warranty.

Power cuts off


Might be a faulty power supply mate , when you turn the xbox on observe the power indicator on the power brick.
Green means its okay
Amber means the console is in standby
Red means the Brick has had it.

Try a friends power brick to see if it does the same.
