3 Red lights problem is one of the most common problem of Xbox 360. You will have to either get it repaired from Microsoft (in case your Xbox's warranty is not expired, but one thing to note is that you will have to wait for at least 3-4 weeks to get back your Xbox) or you can Fix your Xbox's 3 Flashing red lights problem yourself with the help of DIY Video guide available on Internet.

That has absolutely nothing to do with the Hard drive. The red ring of death is a standard misfunction with the Xbox 360. You will have to contact your local game stores to see if they do Red ring of death fixes, send it in to microsoft, or attempt to red ring fix it yourself.

SOURCE: xbox 360 1 red light

The cause of E-74 with one red light Error might be overheating of your console and for avoiding such error in future you need to put your machine at an open space. Ensure that it is placed near the window or you can also make some external arrangement for cooling of console such as cooling the machine through a pedestal fan.
But as your Xbox already have E74 with one red light Problem which can be solved by only repairing it, no other alternative.
Either you can send your Xbox to Microsoft (Please note that microsoft is no longer providing extended warranty for E74 with one red light Error) and wait for 3-4 weeks. If you don't want to wait for a month, you can also fix E74 with one red light problem with the help of this DIY Video, the guide will explain step by step approach to fix the problem. Choice is yours.

Red light come on xbox360 what is the problem


If you get red light around your xbox power button the you have red ring of death. This is when your Xbox has overheated. While im not all that famlier with Xbox I have read there is a 6 cent fix (cause you use 6 pennies) You would have to read up because as I sid before not great with Xbox. I'm sure microsoft would do it to but hey if you good with tools 6 cents sounds pretty cheap.
Im sorry for your loss
Good Luck and Happy Gaming-Koscoe

I play for +- 30 min and the powersupply goes on red is it the powersupply or the box


If you are getting a red light on the Xbox 360 power brick, That happens when the power supply gets to hot or its not getting enough juice. Try plugging it in somewhere else and see if that helps, and make sure not to use any UPS, surge protectors or power strips to plug in your AC adapter

also check if the power connector is firmly connected or not behind your xbox 360, if you still have a problem, check if you can borrow another Xbox 360 from anyone you know and swap the adapter and console which would help you know where the problem is

If none of this works, call up Microsoft for further help and support, since your problem may require servicing of your console.

If you are getting a Red Ring of light on the Xbox 360 power button, please clarify since it requires separate diagnostics.

Hope you get back to gaming on your Xbox 360 ASAP

  2. Verify that your Xbox 360 console has enough ventilation and that the fans are operating. For more information about ventilation, see the "More Information" section.
  3. If the two lights continue to flash red after you try steps 1 and 2, contact Xbox Customer Support.

3 red lights


red light of death. Try turrning it off let it sits for a while then turn it back on if it still does that then the xbox is dead. unfortunatley this is a common problem with xbox 360 MS has extended the warranty on these and there's plenty of articles out there on these xbox.

call them and get them to fix it or replace the machine for you.

sorry i don't think anyone can help you.

good luck
