XBox 360 Steady Center Light at bootup No Green flashing Lights.. After a few moments RROD.. RROD Fix Applied and redone several times.. Even used the Penny Reflow method on both Chips.. Any other options...

First, the Penny reflow, is worth exactly what it costs.. next to nothing.

Depending on which RROD fix you are working, depends a great deal on the success you are having with it.

Now many look at what is being sold, jot down the screw and washer sizes and head out the door. to the local hardware store. if you are lucky you happen to get the same stuff.. but more likely, there are variations. the screws are a bit longer or shorter.. the washers are thinner or thicker..

But the biggest thing is. besides changing the clamps, and the thermal paste, it isnt doing anything to correct the issues that were set in motion in the first place.

Before the first red ring happend you were slowly heating up components, and the heat from that was affecting the motherboard, the weight of the x clamps hanging underneath can add to it,causing it to warp. the warping of the boards affects the solder that holds the chips on the board and affects the connections.

Thats why the the fixes you have been trying are falling short. The penny tricks were short term if at all, by pressing down on the HANA chip, and most likely completing the circuit that has failed.

The only way back is a reflow of the chips, the GPU, the HANA and the Southbridge Esp.

Now depending on how confident you are in this, look for more info on how to reflow your xbox360

What do you do when you get the red lightcomes on

ok if its goes red u have the "RROD" or the red rings of death as i call it, this is a very commen problem with the xbox 360 u can only send it back to microsoft, if its under warrenty it wont cost u anything, if its not it will cost around 200$ to get it fixed. RROD means that there is a problem with the software inside.

It freezes when you turn it on and shuts off. and when you try to turn it back on, instead of the green ring a red ring surrounds the xbox symbol.

It sounds like the RROD. If your XBOX360 is still under warranty, you can call Microsoft and they'll fix it. If not, you can either ship your XBOX off to be fixed by Microsoft or another company or try fixing it yourself. I fixed my red ring of death with a clamp fix (

After RRoD fix, hangs at splash screen and no front lights

ya appliyng thermal past does little if
nothing for the problem your discribing.
did you heat up the G.P.U. and keep
the wth the fan till you got
two reds? if that the case there may
be more diconects under the G.P.U
It is fixable but you need specail equipent
that will compress both sides of
the chip as you heat it to around
320c that will fix problem boards like
yours 90% of the time

When i turn ps3 on red light turns green then yellow,makes 2 beeping noises goes back to red flashes and wont bbot up anyone know thanks

Yes, what you have here is called the Yellow Light of Death, or (YLOD) for short. On PS3's, getting a YLOD is a 3% chance, while the XBOX360 gets a higher chance for the RROD.

I'm not sure exactly how to fix it myself, but hopefully this will help you.

3 red lights and green in the middle. have already tried the towel around it and that did'nt work.

what you have is commonly known as the RROD, or Red Ring Of Death. what this normally means is that your xbox 360's GPU, or Graphics Processing Unit, has over heated to the extent that it has warped the motherboard and desoldered it's self from the motherboard.

Here's a few tutorials on how to fix this. Keep in mind though, always send it in if you still have warranty. that's the best way to make sure that's it's done right.

XBOX buzzes loudly then freezes. Screen turns Green.

If you under warranty send it back NOW before it does something that MS
will not cover

if you broke the seal than get a proper x clamp mod
it will fix 99% of most problems . I know ,that's what i have
been doing for the last 2 years.
