Xclamp fix will usually do it, or your laser is going in the dvd drive, also try cleaning out your cache on you hard drive. Problems mostly are over heating issues, most I have fixed have a cup of dust in the, everything plugged up with no air flow for cooling.

If you have the 3 red lights this is because the GPU and the CPU have heat up you need to stop the heat, you can send it in to do this or you can fix it with a good repair guide

I just purchased a pre owned xbox360 and got it home. Connected it to my none HD tv. upon powering the unit on it keeps freezing. I purchased a 20GB HD with the unit. I have not put the unit online as of...


Unfortunately if the xbox is freezing, this is usually an early sign of the 3 red lights error, commonly called the RROD (Red Ring Of Death). This may not be the case necessarily, but it is a common indication. The only thing I can recommend is to keep the box well cooled, heat is a major factor in the xbox freezing up. Put it out in the open (not in an entertainment center) and possibly put it on a laptop cooler pad. I don't recommend the enermax cooler, they have been known to fry xbox motherboards in the past.

If you do get the three flashing red lights, call Microsoft at 1-800-4MY-XBOX. If the box wasn't registered to the previous owner, you may be eligible for the warranty.

Game keeps freezing and sometimes only 3 red lights flashes


The game is overheating. Although Microsoft doesn't recommend or honor a fan (for warranty) , I would suggest purchasing one and placing on X-box. Try not to play for long hours as this can cause overheating and eventually lead to hardware failure. If you still have a warranty, contact Microsoft ASAP.

Xbox fixed itself from 3 lights but other problem


When someone say that his/her Xbox is having 3 red lights problem, It means it needs to be repaired. If you are using Cooler than it is not a cure but a prevention. You could have used cooler before acutally having the problem just to prevent your Xbox. But now you will have to either get it repaired from Microsoft (in case your Xbox's warranty is not expired, but one thing to note is that you will have to wait for at least 3-4 weeks to get back your Xbox) or you can Fix your Xbox's 3 Flashing red lights problem yourself with the help of DIY Video guide available on Internet. You can fix yourself without any technical knowledge.

Are there three red lights flashing? Same thing happened to me just earlier (for the second time now grrr). You need to contact Microsoft Support and get them to repair it for free.
