The red rings can also mean that your xbox is not receiving proper power from the power supply. make sure all the cables are properly plugged in. Turn off the console, unplug everything, then plug it all back in, and then restart your xbox this should fix your problem, or else your xbox is malfunctioning.

Power box light is blinking orange and sometime a steady red and console want come on.


Green Indicator Light:

The default indicator light is green. When the Xbox 360 power supply light is green it means that there are no problems with your power supply. However, if you are having problems and the power supply light is green, this means that the console is faulty and you need to contact Xbox 360 support.

Orange or Yellow Indicator Light

When the Xbox 360 power supply light is orange or yellow this means there is no problem with your console but the power supply can't supply it with power.

To remedy this problem, first try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console and unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. You'll also want to uplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord.

Wait for about five minutes and then reconnect everything. You might also want to try plugging it into another wall outlet without an extension cord.

If you are still getting an orange or yellow indicator light, then something is at fault with the Xbox 360 power supply. If this is the case, contact the Xbox 360 customer support to get a new one.

Red Indicator Light:

If the xbox 360 power supply light is red, then there is something wrong with the power supply connection. If this is the case, try the same solution as listed above of unplugging the power supply from the console, unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet and unplugging the power supply from the power cord. Wait for about five minutes and then reconnect everything. You might also want to try plugging it into another wall outlet without an extension cord.

If the indicator lights are still red, then there is a fault with the power supply. If this is the case, contact customer support about getting a new one.

No Indicator Light:

If the XBox 360 power supply light is not illuminating at all, this usually means that the Xbox power supply is not connected to the wall outlet correctly. On the other hand, it might also be a fault with the power supply or the power cord.

Either way, try the same solution as listed above for the red indicator lights. If you still don't see any lights illuminated after unplugging and then reconnecting everything, you'll need to contact customer support about getting a new power supply.

Green and Orange Indicator Light:

If the indicator light is flashing green and orange, this may mean that the console does not detect the AV Pack.

Disconnect and then reconnect the Xbox AV Pack. Make sure the connections are firmly connected. Turn your Xbox back on.

If the indicator light is still flashing green and orange, try another AV pack if one is available.

If the indicator light is still flashing green and orange, you'll need to contact Miscrosoft Customer support.

Flashing Orange Indicator Light:

If your Xbox console's indicator light flashes orange, this means the internal components have overheated and the Xbox has automatically shut down to prevent damage.

Turn off the console and let it cool for at least 10 minutes.

To prevent the Xbox from overheating in the future, make sure that it's not placed in a closed cabinet or on carpet. It's best to get the Xbox elevated off the ground where the PSU can have maximum heat release.

You'll also want to make sure the Xbox is not located near a heat source like the back side of a television, computer, monitor, or other electrical device.

I hear the xbox 360 sound but no visual pictures. it says invalid format


turn the switch on the video input plug that connects to your system from HDTV to TV or vice versa. On a NON HD tv you also don't have to plug the blue,green,and extra red input plug into the tv, just the red,white,and yellow.

Xbox 360 - When you turn on the machine, you can hear it boot up with sound but there is no video output. No red lights on face of machine if it is hooked up to tv, but if you disconnect from tv all 4 red...


Your right ,you should get 4 reds if you unplug the a/v cable
The problem is one tiny solder ball connection Under the G.P.U
has become un-soldered (The video feed)

The fix is to have the chip re-flowed .
Or you can do an xclamp mod , that will get it working
for a little while.
Or send it in to Microsoft if it's under warranty.

Those are your options.

if you have any questions just comment and ill respond.

Xbox 360 problem


If you can still HEAR sound, but can't see. Check your Audio Video Cable.

It's the colorful one (red, white, yellow) (red, blue green, white, red)

Make sure the connections are secure into the back of the TV as well as the connection to the back of the Xbox 360.

XBOX SHUTS OFF.


You could have a faulty power supply. Have you checked to make sure everything is hooked up properly? When you turn your xbox on have a look at the light on the power brick, its usually green when its working fine and orange when the xbox is turned off, if its red there could be a problem with it.

Hope this helps
