2 and 3 red rings


The 2 red rings error is an overheat problem. Something you did when you attempted the previous repair has prevented the 360 from cooling properly. I suggest having a professional examine your machine.

Error Code 0020


First, my xbox would have one red light and E 74. Then when I opened it up and booted it I got three red lights and 0020. I took out the motherboard, replaced the heatsink compound and did the x-clamp fix, but I couldn't get nylon washers in the right size so i just used no washers at all. Varying the tightness of various x-clamp bolts gave me 0020, 0003, 0002, 0001, or it would boot up to the black screen and I'd get E 74 again. Other times the xbox would almost immediately overheat. Most of the time I would get 0020, though. At that point, I gave up and I just tightened up the bolts replacing the x-clamp a certain way (nothing seemed special about it) and put the motherboard back in the case without testing it. I screwed everything back together, and since the heads of the bolts were thicker than they should have been, the motherboard didn't really sit flat in the metal cage. But i just screwed the motherboard back into the cage not to tight with the 9 small silver screws, which I would imagine put some stress on the mobo. Then I pu the rest of the case on and the 6 long screws, and once I had snapped everything back together I tried booting it up. To my great surprise it booted up fine! I played some halo 3 and it has booted up fine every time (3 times) since then
Many people have got this error You need to replace the xclamp and make sure there's extra pressure (less than half a turn) on the front right corner of the GPU. You can read more about xclamp replacement here.

its not an issue with ur HDD so no worries....

Scratched Xbox 360 motherboard


Hi,

Usually if a motherboard has been scored or damaged.
( tracks or resistors/capacitors dislodged et,c )
The board is in the Bin. ( scrap ) unless the damage can be repaired. The RROD Or red-ring of death. Is usually due to the x-clamps fitted to the console initially, by the manufacturer.
Replacing the x-clamps, with a kit ( bolts/washers thermal Compound ) And 4 x heatpads recommended. Can cure the RROD. And in my own experience the 1 red light And E74 error.

Bottom line, if the boards scratched. it,s in the Bin.

Xbox360 has 3 red lights


Its when the solder overheats and disconnects a wire in the xbox. If you have bought it within the last year, you can return or swap for new wherever you bought it. If not you will most likely have to send it off to xbox repairs.

2 red rings after the xclamp fix


Yesh...4 red lights means you didn't have the component or hdmi pluged into the system and tv. 3 lights means there is some soldering problem in your 360. 2 lights means your 360 is overheated. For the 2 lights normally you can fix that with letting it cool for a while and give it some room around the system to run cooler. However by using the towel trick you you caused the soldering to run and now it's probibly miss soldered. I recommend you ship to Microsoft or sell it.

RED Ring of death xclamp fixed but..


Do you have the fan in? If you do, take it out or put 2 screwdrivers through the back holes to stop the fans from spinning. IF you have the fans out and its still not overheating, just leave it on for a while until it does. It will overheat eventually.

2 red lights after x clamp replacement


It means basically that the xbox is starting tio overheat fast. what sometimes happens is those x-clamps have to be tightened in a sequence and tight as possible but not too tight to crack the board or cut the small PCB traces. Open up the console again and just have a look underneeh the motherboard make sure there are no torn green pcb traces ( put simply green lines that connect to a silver blob of solder ) and make sure the screws are tight enough.
