Red Ring of Death: Red Flashing XBOX 360 Lights Explained Common Xbox 360 Red Ring Errors The XBOX has a reported 54.2% failure rate which makes the XBOX 360 gaming consoles' worst "lemon" to date. If you find yourself with the red flashing lights error, --> lg.php?category_id=15&content_type=article&content_type_id=2663399&key_page=682482001924178892&site_id=1&bannerid=11791&campaignid=3153&zoneid=23&loc=1&referer=http%3a%2f%2fwww.associatedcontent.com%2farticle%2f2663399%2fred_ring_of_death_red_flashing_xbox.html%3fcontent_type%3darticle%26content_type_id%3d2663399&cb=8da55f49a0 follow this guide to try and pinpoint the problem with your XBOX 360.

1 Red Ring = Serious Hardware Failure
I f your XBOX 360 has a 1 red flashing light error, you're more than likely in big trouble. The 1 flashing red ring of light can be due to GPU or CPU failure, RAM overheating, a DVD drive error, or some serious problem with your Xbox 360's internal components. The most common 1 flashing red ring lights error is the E74 error. The E74 error is no easy fix for the Xbox 360 and usually has to be repaired by the manufacturer [though some have managed to repair it with the heat gun trick - but be careful]

2 Red Rings = Overheating
Mostly all red flashing lights on the Xbox 360 rings are due to overheating in some way or other, but the 2 red rings singles out overheating as the main issue. When doing the X-Clamp fix the 2 red rings are required to fix the Xbox 360 by overheating the CPU. If you get this Xbox 360 error without doing the X-Clamp fix, you probably just need to let your Xbox 360 cool down for a few hours. Make sure that all vents aren't blocked off and that your Xbox fans are working properly in order to repair this problem.

3 Red Rings = Basic Hardware Failure
The most common error on the Xbox 360 is the 3 red rings - also known as the Red Rings of Death (RRoD). This flashing lights problem is the main cause of Xbox 360's 54.2% failure rate. The 3 red flashing lights can be due to lots of different errors but is mainly due to the X-Clamps in your Xbox 360 and overheating. Fortunately, lots of people were able to fix this issue using the X-Clamp and heat gun fix. Follow this list of error codes to find out the real issue with the 3 red rings because there are quite a few of them.

Three red lights


Three red lights error occurs when there is a general hardware failure with the Xbox 360. When this error occurs the systems signals it by showing 3 flashing red lights around the power button. There are a variety of reasons speculated why this error occurs.

The most common consensus is that the Xbox 360 has an inefficient design causing it to overheat. The overheating causes other reactions to the parts in the system to malfunction giving you the 3 flashing red lights.

So how do you fix it? Well if you still have your Xbox 360 warranty then you can ship it to Microsoft to have them fix it. Microsoft has extended the warranty to 3 years due to the huge number of problems with the consoles. There are a few stipulations to the warranty, though.
  • Only covers the Red Ring of Death Error. It does not include other types of malfunctions.
  • Applies only to the original purchaser of the Xbox 360. So you would not be covered if you bought your system from somebody else or if you purchased a used version.
  • Must have your receipt or proof of purchase.
  • Be prepared to lose any saved information that you may have if Microsoft decides to send you a replacement system instead of fixing your old one.
  • Prepare to be without your Xbox 360 for up to 4 weeks or longer, although some people have reported receiving them back much sooner.

So if your system is still under warranty and you meet the requirements above then you can send your unit to Microsoft since they do not charge you for the repair.

We have three red flashing lights on the on/off button when we turn the xbox on. The Xbox will not load.


3 red lights is the most common error it is caused by the GPU and the CPU overheating and to fix it you need to either get a good xbox 360 Repair guide or send it in.

Flashing red and green light in xbox


You have a major failure on the motherboard. If it was your hard drive the system will boot up, but freeze on the main screen and you will hear clicking coming out of the hard drive. Red and Green flashing lights means there is a problem on the motherboard. Sometimes you can fix the problem by reflashing the Bios on the main motherboard.
