Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Cutting off 2 mins into the game

I just got my xbox back from Gernmany where it was being fixed (red ring). I literally just turned it on to play some fifa 09 - it worked for about 30 seconds (let me pick language) then cut out and gave me a black screen.

When i turn it on it makes a jumpy grinding noise. Other games are working - i know fifa works as i only had it two days before i got red ring of doom and i played it last night at my friends.

If u have any ideas - please respond.

That happens to me once in a while too. What you do, try taking the disk drive out and run it under hot water for about 20 seconds. Then, dry it thoroughly. Put it back in and it should work.

Hello there

From what you have said it sounds like you have the RROD - 2 RED RINGS ERROR

The main causes are Hardware failure, overheating or wear & tear.

You may need to perform simple maintenance, clean or in some cases adjust settings.

To get the best advice on where to start I recommend a GOOD REPAIR GUIDE, From this you can fix the problem at home and avoid any large repair bills. Its easier than it sounds when you have help from the guide.

I used Gamer Fix to get the best guides

The other solution would be to send the console off to its manufacturer, This is free if your still in warranty. If your console is out of warranty then the usual price of repair is $150

I am Glad I could help and You can help others by rating this Post or leaving a comment.
Many thanks

2 red lights is overheating, try giving it a dust out and if this does not work you will need to stop the heat build up inside.

My game plays for a min then frezers and gives me the 3 red rings


the red rings can be fixed in 2 different ways.
1) take all cords out except power corad and wrap it in thick DRY towl. then turn it on and let it overheat, this works 85-95% of the time.
2) send it in the console(you need the reciept)
and get it fixed/replaced.

Two red rings


The 2 flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with your Xbox 360 console. The main thing that causes the 2 red lights to start flashing is because of overheating and as the motherboard within the console takes more heat it actually warps and bends until the solders become loose.

Once this happens you will receive the 2 red lights. Even before you get the 2 red lights you may have noticed your games freezing and this is caused in the same way, by overheating. As the chips take more heat they shut off to prevent lasting damage, although they can only do this a number of times until you get the Xbox 360 2 Red Lights.

To fix the problem you need to stop the level of heat the motherboard takes and you can do this in a number of ways, but it will involve opening up your Xbox and working on it. In addition, you could always send your Xbox back to Microsoft as they are offering free repair for this error, you will just need to wait 3-4 weeks that's all.

There is one more option available in the form of DIY Video Guide, that will explain you step by step approach to fix red ring of death within one hour without any technical knowledge.
