Red light on xbox 360 limited edition star wars version . blue light indicates ON but light turns to red won't play


Your console has the RDOD (Red Dot of Death) which is the same as the RRoD. Most console repair shops should be able to resolve this for you. In all likelihood, it needs the XCGPU (the main processor) to be reballed and reinstalled. You can however get the Secondary Error Code for the console itself (http://www.llamma.com/xbox360/repair/Xbox-360-error-codes.htm) which will give you a much better understanding of the problem in question.

3 red light


The 3 light RROD is caused by a multitude of things. To fix it you have to know what you are doing; if you don't, I suggest either: selling it on eBay, or taking it to a professional. Even following Youtube videos you likely won't be able to fix it unless you truly understand what you're doing.

My x-box360 won't work the red light comes on but


OK, I'm assuming your console has 3 flashing red lights, if that is the case there's not much you can do for the Xbox, 3 flashing red lights is a problem with the mother board in your console, now there is a temporary fix you could perform your self but that doesn't always work, its a 50/50 chance, personally id play it safe on this one and check to see if your warranty is still good, if so all you have to do is contact Microsoft and explain to them about your red lights, they'll then ask you to plug out everything and plug it back in, when that fails to work they will send you out tags in your e-mail, once you receive the tags stick them to the box that contains your console and await collection. It usually takes up to 5-7 weeks before your u get your console back.

How to fix the red rings on your xbox 360


1 Red Light Error -
Your system indicates this error when only the bottom right part of the ring is flashing. When you have 1 red light on the Xbox 360, it is usually associated with an error code you see on the screen, such as the Xbox 360 error code E74.
Searching for this error code online or in the Microsoft support site will give you the description and solution. Usually the problem lies on the DVD drive whether it is the wrong firmware or lacks a chip.
It may also be a hard drive error which can be resolved by taking it out and putting it back in or it can be a voltage error which usually occurs if you have added accessories to it. It is best to research the error code so you know exactly what to do.

2 Red Lights Error - One of the most common is when two red lights are flashing. No need to panic if you see only see the Xbox 360 2 red lights. Its sole meaning is that the console is too hot and needs to cool down. Power down the system and try again in a few minutes or if possible after an hour or two.
After giving the system some rest and playing in a much cooler environment, you should be back to your gaming in better performance. If the problem persists however, you may need to have it serviced to have the cooling issue fixed.

3 Red Lights Error - f you see three flashing lights, you are experiencing the infamous three red lights problem that many other gamers are frustrated with. You may also know it as the Red Ring of Death.

At one point 1 out of every 3 Xbox 360 owners experienced this problem. This is the one error that you do not want to get. This highlights that there is a serious Xbox 360 hardware problem.
Your options are to send your console back to Microsoft for repair or to fix it yourself. Be prepared to spend a nice amount of money ($140 or so) if you are sending your system to Microsoft and you no longer have the warranty

4 Red Lights

If you have to get any flashing lights on your Xbox 360, pray that this is the one. If the entire ring flashes, it is a minor problem that indicates that the AV cable isn't connected properly or in rare instances, the cable is damaged. Make sure everything is properly connected and replace it if It still doesn't work.

My x box has an E74 error


An E74 error is something only MS can fix, fortunately they recently added E74s to the list of 3 year warranty problems. So you'll have to call their hotline and order a fix for it.
