Sounds like there is something wrong with the Xbox 360 power supply, try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console and unplug the power cord from the wall outlet also unplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord. Give it a minute then reconnect it all back, also try it on another wall outlet without any extension cord at all.

If it's still red that suggests fault with your Xbox 360 power supply so will need to contact Xbox 360 customer support if its under warranty they should be able to sort it out for you. If out of warranty it might cost you for a new power supply!

One red light flashing on xbox360,code e74 showing on screen


If you have 1 red light flashing it is normally E74 or some other E error you need to stop the heat.

You can send it in and Microsoft will do it for you or you can repair it yourself using a good guide

The light turns red on the system


If this is the infamous Red Ring of Death and your xbox isnt under warranty anymore, you can try this tutorial here.

Again, good luck, but only try this if you haven't called Microsoft already or you've opened your case thus voiding the warranty (Microsoft support number is the first thing mentioned in that link).

Hope that helps :)

When i turn my ps3 on,red light goes green then red right away


Try disconnecting your PS3 and then for 10 seconds if that doesn't work, disconnect all jackets meaning all usb connection ports connected in it. Remove them, then turn on your ps3 see what happens (without using the controller), then disconnect the ps3 cord that connects to your extension cord or jacket and plug it back in. Try it again. Then again with the controller could try. Try disconnecting other ports such as other stuff like as listed, Irons,Fans, etc.           !!!!!!DON'T USE TOO MUCH POWER!!!!


The Same thing happened to me on my Wii though.



If nothing works call Customer Support (SONY)

Red lights games wont load


Hi calleyne

Im going to take a huge guess here and say your problem resides with the xbox360 and the three red lights on the ring of light around the power button,

ok there are 2 options you can take,

one, you can call Microsoft for a repair box, the good thing about it is now they will still repair it if its out of warranty, the bad part about it is they charge $100 and it can take some time before you get another 360 from them,

two, you can open the xbox360 yourself and see whats wrong on the inside, **note that even if you do this you can still do option one** the main things you can check are the processor, heat sinks, the disk drives, and the gpu and the heat sink on top of it, i found that what was causing my first xbox360 to get the red ring was the heat sink over the processor was touching and was causing it to get super hot, but really all you should have to do is lift the heat sink off the processor and put some liquid coolant like you would on a pc and place it back, thats what i did at least.

Hope that helps ^-^

Red lights... ? (different i think)


I had the same exact thing happen. The only thing to do is call 18004myxbox and have it sent out for repair. Ask to speak with a manager though, because they can usually give you a better price than the initial guy. If it's still under warranty though it won't cost anything. So weird that this happened to me playing the same game. Just got mine back yesterday.

X box 360 red ring of death costless solution


You don't need any money mate. Microsoft recently extended their warranty to 3 years for the three red lights problem. all you have to do is get in touch with microsoft and tell them about the three red lights, and they should either repair your X Box or they will replace it with a new one.
Good luck mate

4 FLASHING RED LIGHTS


4 red lights is not necessarily a hardware failure or ring of death. The cause is usually from AV cable not being detected or not connected correctly. The Eraser trick is good for Error 0102 make sure which error number you have! Suggested Solutions: 1. Try to connect and disconnect the cable and see if it makes any changes on the red lights status. Note that not inserting the AV fully will cause the 4 lights error to appear. 2. Make sure the AV Cable and the connector in the Xbox console are proper and there is nothing banded or twisted. 3. Try to connect it to a different monitor maybe this is where the problem is. 4. Find the metal area where it plugs into the console this is called the AV Pack metal area. Use a dry, lint-free cloth and wipe it. Then try to plug the AV again. * If you still can't make it to work and you have your warranty just send it in. If you don't have warranty I suggest trying the live chat support on Fixya!
