There is a way to do it yourself .If u go to google or yahoo and type in repair my xbox360 3 red lights for free .U might have to fish round for a while to find a free guide.
Or the other simple option is to ring xbox as all 360s have a three year warranty which includes the red light problem.They will even come to pick it up then fix it and deliver it back to u all for free.I cant remember the number but if u go to your local Game store they will have it on a leaflet. Hope this can help save you some trouble.Joe stevenson

Heyy dude,

try to turn off xbox and wait 10 seconds, then you unplug it out of any and all plugs, take out the hard drive, so it looks like a xbox arcade and plug it all back in. if it dont work, then u have to contact microsoft.

My console flashes 3red lights but it wont turn on at all as my led light is still red


Yes the 3 red lights is caused by the main chips getting too hot you will need to stop the heat build up in order to play, use a good repair guide or send it in to get it fixed.

E 74


You need to have the motherboard fixed, do to this you need to take the xbox360 apart then reflow the board. (3red and e74 fix pretty much the same way)

there is a great 6part video guide on YouTube to view for free. 6 videos from the same fellow, each video is a few mins long, and goes over everything for you.

http://www.youtube.com/user/ohiocitysales#p/u and its free unlike some eBook site.

I actually used the same method to fix over 450 Xbox360 units with no problems at all, barring a few (but i have done nearly 500 so you expect a few problems along the way), you just need a few things though like a heat gun and some thermal paste. sounds hard, but it's very easy once you start!

Hope this helps in some way.

I should also mention that that the 3 red light issue is covered by Microsoft for 3 years from the date of purchase under there extended warranty for 3red light and 1 red light E74 errors. so if your unit is under 3 years old and you have not opened it, then give them a call for free and have your unit fixed for free.

I have a problem with my x-box 360 and the red eye. It plays no more games and i purchase it in 2007. what can i do?


Do you have 1 or 3 red lights? Microsoft have a 3 year warranty form the original purchase date for the 3red light error and also for the 1 red light error (E74) so if its under 3 full years old and has one of them two errors, and has not been opened then have it sent to Microsoft to be fixed free of charge

E74 on xbox360


YOU DON T NEED TO BUY A NEW ONE. CALL THE XBOX 360 SUPPORT NUMBER LOCATED IN THE BACK OF THE XBOX OR YOU CAN GOOGLE THE SUPPORT NUMBER FOR XBOX.

INFORMED THEM THAT YOU HAVE DONE EVERYTHING AND YOUR XBOX IS NOT WORKING AND YOU HAVE THE RED LIGHT.

THEY WILL REPLACE YOUR XBOX OR FIX IT FOR FREE.

If your box never has been open you could send to MS for repair but since it is not the 3red rings error. They will charge you I think. You'll have to call and tell them your problem. If you want to fix the problem yourself you are going to have to open the box. Once you have it open you got to check the fan. Look and see if any wires came lose,disconnected or burnt up. If they seem ok check the clip attached to the motherboard. Just follow the wires on the fans. Pull the clip out push it back in. This is to make sure clip is in tight. You dont have to put the 360 back together to test the fans. Plug the power in and the video cable and boot it up. If it works great if not your going to have to buy replacement fans. http://www.talismoon.com/cgi-bin/version2/engine.pl?page=product-xbox360-whisperfan-red
