At the beginning it showed me red light in the fourth quadrant, but then I cleaned it a bit, checked the cables and when I rebooted it there were no red lights (green as usual) but still I couldn't get the video or the sound on my tv (and I tried on 2 different TV's). It just shows me some green sparkles goind up and down. help

Each quadrant on the set of flashing red lights indicates a different issue. If all of the lights but the first section are flashing, this means a general hardware failure has occurred. There is little to be done other than trying to unhook and reattach your cables. This problem is a sure sign a visit to the repair center is in your console's future. If the problem is indicated in the second quadrant of the system, it is merely overheating. As too many hours of GRAW will do that to a unit, the proposed cure here is to unplug the unit from the power supply, let it sit to cool down, and perhaps begin scouting for a better location to store your precious investment.
A problem indicated in the third quadrant of the Xbox 360 ring of light is diagnosed as a hardware failure. Once again, try re-inserting all of your cords and cables, but this problem should definitely be dealt with by the repair center. If all four lights are flashing on the front of your console, this is perhaps the easiest problem to fix. This is an issue with the AV cable not being properly inserted into the back of the console. The cure? Just make sure the cord "clicks" once it has been inserted into the unit. If that doesn't work, of course call the repair center, but the four lights are the easiest of the problems to rectify.
The red rings are a fatal Xbox 360 error. There is no way to solve this problem except by having a qualified professional perform a reflow to the problem Chip. This can usually be determined based on the number of quadrants lit.
1 Red Quadrant is usually System Error. A "E##" error code will be displayed on the screen. Most common is E74.
2 Red Quadrants indicates the console is overheating.
3 Red Quadrants indicates hardware failure. A secondary error code can be acquired by pressing and holding the sync button then while continuing to hold the sync button repeatedly pressing the eject button and noting the number of red quadrants that becomes lit.
4 Red Quadrants indicates that either no A/V (Audio / Video ) Connection is available.
Good Luck! Let me know if you have any further questions. If you tell me which number of quadrants or the error code I can point you in the right direction.
The wired and wireless controllers can be actively connected to an Xbox
360 console all at one time. Each connected controller is assigned a
quadrant on the Ring of Light. Before you can connect a wireless
controller, at least one quadrant must be free and will be unlit.
Connecting an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller to an Xbox 360 Console is
called Connecting. To connect a controller to a console:
First, Press and hold down the Guide Button on the wireless controller
until it turns on.
Second, Press and release the power button to turn the console on.
Third, Press and release the connect button on the console.
Fourth, Press and release the connect button on the controller.
Fifth, After the ring of light on the controller and console spin and
flash once, the controller is connected. The quadrant that remains lit
indicates the controller's position.
Four Green lights on the controller's Ring of Light flash continuously
The Please Reconnect Controller message appears on the monitor
There is interference and the controller does not respond properly
Step 1: Ensure that either the AA batteries are new or the Xbox 360
Rechargeable Battery Pack has a full charge.
Step 2: Ensure that you have performed the proper procedure to connect
the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller to the console.
Step 3: If still experiencing issues, ensure there is a clear line of
sight between the front of the console and the wireless controller. If
there are any obstructions, especially metal objects, remove them.
Step 4: 2.4 gigahertz cordless telephones, microwave ovens, and
Bluetooth headsets for cell phones can interfere with the operation of
the wireless controller. Turn off or unplug those devices and then try
to connect the wireless controller to the console again.
Step 5: If these steps did not resolve the issue, the wireless
controller may need to be replaced.
Three lights flash red on the Ring of Light (RoL) on the front of your Xbox 360 console. The upper-right quadrant light is the only light that does not flash red. The three flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with your Xbox 360 console.
You can try one or two things.
1. Turn on your xbox and check to see if the power supply light is green. If it is green there is a problem with the system. If it is red it means you should check your connections and restart the xbox.
2. These rings have a tendency of meaning that there is a problem with the system itself. Most companies sell extra insurance to cover this "ROL" Ring of life. You can contact Microsoft by calling them. The number is usually listed on the back of the video game booklets.
I wish you the best and I hope this resolved your problem
2 red lights flashing is'nt too bad of a deal. just reposition your xbox 360 to a place where more airflow can get to it. plus, dont have anything that gives off heat near the xbox 360, thats vary important to give it room for cool air. it worked for me
