Its over heating, let it cool down, un plug everything from everything, then i would get one of the 10 dollar fans they build for it, for mine did the same thing, and i havent had a problem since, also try elevating it, and keep it off the carpet if possible, also try to vacum around it every now and then, dust seriously kiils videogame consoles

You might have a faulty wire, this simply means check that all wires are in properly in the back of 360! If this still happens you can send it into a gaming shop and get it fixed for just £50. DIGMAN

I have a Phillips big screen tv and the front light is flashing red at all times and the picture will not come on the screen. This light is usually green when the set is on. What can I do to get it green...


I have the SAME issue and so far it seems to be an issue with the fan not kicking on.... I turn it on in the morning, as soon as you hear sound the red lights kick on and I shut it off... it takes a few seconds to shut down so stay close to your remote durring this process and as soon as the "red light" kicks in, turn it off, as soon as it's off, turn it back on... I have to go thru this about 30 times now before I can get the picture to stay on, but it eventually kicks in. Hope this helps!

you probably did something to where you messed up your xbox motherboard, making it (after less then a minute of power) get short circuited and power fails. i would recommend getting it repaired by microsoft if you have a warranty.

As playing Xbox 360 system shuts off two red lights occurs.


Two red lights mean your 360 is over exceeding the inside temperature. Your fan must not be working at all and your 360 is overheating tremendously. That is what I know about the 2 red lights. Im not sure what to tell you to fix this but to just call 18004myxbox.

360 issues


Two Red Lights

The two left quadrants of the Ring of Light flash red on the front of the Xbox 360 console
This behavior occurs when the internal temperature of the console exceeds the acceptable limits. You may think of this as too hot, overheating, and so on. Make sure the fans are operating and the system has adequate ventilation.

Since you've been inside it's possible that a heatsink or some other part of the cooling system is not working properly or is loose. Check all these!

Good Luck!
