If you haven't modded your system, this should be an easy fix... Many games (mostly xbox live games) have a system to automatically re download the xbox dashboad. I used mlb 2005 because it's what I had lying around when I had a similar problem. Just put in the game and the rest should take care of itself. Hope it works for you

Red light blinks and wont stay on when push power button


You can do this fan test.

Turn the main switch off, hold the eject button.

While holding the eject button, turn the main switch on, when the power light is green, release it and you should hear a beep.

The fan will operate at the highest speed possible and will eject any disc that is inside.

After about 15 seconds the fan will stop spinning and the ps3 will beep 3 times and the red light will blink. When this happens, turn the main switch off and on then turn it on normally.

Tell me how this goes!!

Turn the console on, displays the xbox screen then screen goes off and a red light starts flashing on console, says system error


is this a single red light? if so, it is a E code error. if there are 2, it is a overheating problem. if its 3, it is a general system error which could be a number of things which you need to figure out the secondary error code to narrow down the problem.
to find the secondary error code:
1. after the red lights start flashing, hold down the "controller sync" button.
2. push the "eject" button 4 times and count the amount of red lights that flash. the red lights will begin to flash rapidly. secondary error codes are only 4 numbers. 1 light = 1, 2 lights = 2, 3 lights = 3 and 4 lights = 4.
after you get the code go to this website, and on the right hand side of the screen under "Xbox Repair Guide" select your PRIMARY error code (1,2,3 or 4 slow flashing red lights). then it will ask you to enter your SECONDARY error code, which is the one you discovered in the steps above.
this will give you a very narrowed down idea of what is wrong with your console, and will give us "questions answerers" a better idea on how to help ya out!

Where light is for controller port four its flashind red and xbox will noy work?


hi, this is what that code is telling you, also do you have a code on the screen when switched on let me know if you do if you dont ill tell you at the end of this post how to get an error code so i can tell you exactly what the problems is.

Section 4 is flashing red
- Hardware Failure
/ \
\ /

The Specific Type of hardware failure can be determined by the error code displayed on the screen.
If the screen is blank or you would like additional information follow the instructions for determining the secondary error code in the section below


here is how to get the secondary code for me.
The specific type of hardware failure can be determined by a "hidden" error code

* Turn the xbox 360 on, and wait till the 1 red lights are flashing.
* Press and hold the sync up button (the small white one), while holding that button press the eject button.
* The LEDs will now blink the first number in the code ( so 1 red light may be lit so write this down).
* Release the eject button and press it again.( it will then change the red lights and maybe 2 will be lit up write this down also)
* The LEDs will now blink the second number of the code.
* Release the eject button and press it again.
* The LEDs will now blink the third number of the code.
* Release the eject button and press it again.
* The LEDs will now blink the forth number of the code.
* Release the eject button and press it again.
* The LEDs will go back to the 1 red flashing lights.

so what you need to do is this, when the 1 red light comes on hold down the little white sync button and keep holding it down all the time, now whilst your holding that little white button down on the front of xbox press the eject button but keep holding the white button down now write how many lights are lit up and this is the 1st number in the code, so keep holding the white button down dont let go of this white button then press and let go of the eject button again and write how many lights are lit up whilst still holding the white button down, now do this 4 times all together and you will end up with something like this written down
4402

once you have this four digit code send me a message back with the code then i can tell you exactly what the problem is and what you can do to try and solve the problem

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Well i can tell you that my 360 is not overheating because it has been off for 24 hours and right when i try to turn it on i get the 2 red lights


It is overheating, or atleast it thinks it is. The 3 things that overheat in a 360 that trigger those lights are the CPU, GPU, and RAM.
When you turn on the console, and the 2 lights start blinking do this...
Hold down the sync button and press the eject button, it should blink a certain number of lights rapidly. Continue to hold the sync button and each press of the eject button moves to the next number of a code. After 4 presses total, you should have a 4 digit code and be back on the regular speed blinking of the 2 lights.
And here is what they mean (4 lights = 0)
0011- CPU is overheating 0012- GPU is overheating 0013- RAM is overheating or faulty (this can be the tricky one)
For the CPU and GPU, a simple X clamp fix will cure them. Sometime simply putting pressure on the RAM corrects it's issue... sometimes. But sometimes it can be a bad solder under the RAM or just faulty RAM, in which case I would have an expert repair it.

Cannot get a connection from wireless internet to game-


E71: possibly a dashboard update error, Check below in the "Console Reset Codes" for instructions. If that does not work there is no other solution and the console must be sent back to MS for repair.

Press and hold the sync up button (the small white one), while holding that button press the eject button.

Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the forth number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will go back to the 3 red flashing lights.
You should be able to determine the difference between the 3 flashing lights and the error code lights by the rate in which they flash.

Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the forth number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will go back to the 3 red flashing lights.
You should be able to determine the difference between the 3 flashing lights and the error code lights by the rate in which they flash.
Here is how you interpret the LEDs to get the code number:
All four lights flashing - 0
One light flashing - 1
Two Lights flashing - 2
Three lights flashing - 3

Once you get this code, go to: http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=484726

My Tray Door popped open after two red lights shut down console and won't close!


Here is a great page that has a step by step process for opening your unit. (they also sell parts and mod equipment)

http://www.llamma.com/xbox360/repair/Xbox-360-Disassembly.htm

You may need a new drive, but I doubt it. After you get the Xbox open, peel off the silver tape thats on the bottom front of the DVD player, unplug the 2 connections, and lift it out. Turn the player upside down and remove the 4 screws, flip it back over and make sure that the try is lined up correctly with the mechinism.

I hope this helps. Good luck and happy gaming!!
