I have the same promblem. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesnt, however aproximately 2 months ago thsi promblem occured and i took my xbox apart and found a large amount of dog and lint hair(particularly because of my 3 dogs). Nevertheless i cleaned the hair out and it worked for a good two months before overheating last night while playing fable 2.

Replaced Xbox 360 xclamps with bolts and new thermal paste, got the video back but now console freezes after a few mins, no red lights. Help!?


The G.P.U . or C.P.U. is at a slight angel and not
making full contact with the chip set and its locking up

or you have too much thermal paste .Tip don't use paste with
silver in it , it will cause voids air pocket that will cause 2 reds FAST.
use the heavy body white compound and spread it THIN THIN THIN.

Re clamp Evenly and tighting is kind of a touchy feely ,tight but not
to tight . I like to see 5 min to full fan speed and at least 3-4 min
to 2 red as you keep the C.P.U . cool , unplug an see what you got
in 20min or so.

My ps2 runs for ten mins then shuts off


Feel it and see if it's hot, It may be overheating. If so they have small fans that you plug into the usb port in the front.

I have to red lights after about ten mins on the xbox 360 and it?


I haven't got an Xbox Myself but I hear that the red lights mean the console has overheated and its a failsafe to prevent damage. It was something ALOT of people got. Also known by gamers as the "RRoD" Or 'Red Ring Of Death". Microsoft released an open letter giving a public warrenty extension to 3 years.... Basically send it back to where you got it under warrenty for the reason of
"General Hardware Failure" and you SHOULD reseave a new one. Sorry if this isn't what you wanted to hear.
Hope it helps!

2 red light


I suggest you to try DIY Guide that wil explain solving the 2 red lights along with some other common problems of Xbox like Disc Read Error, No Video/picture Problem and most famous RROD. Even a novice can solve the problem with the help of step by step process given at the guide. I think it's worth trying. If you try this method, you won't have to wait for 3-4 weeks and you can enjoy your gaming experience within 2 hours, once you try this guide.

Xbox 360 two red lights


The fan sounds like it is malfunctioning. Two red lights mean the 360 is overheating. I suggest you don't turn on the 360 until you get the fan replaced as this may damage your 360 more and lead to more problems with the motherboard. If its under warranty then you should get it fixed for free but if not then you might have to pay.

if you mean the 3 red lights, simple. You will need to have the xbox 360 running, 2 or so towels, and some time. First keep the xbox 360 running, then put the towels over the 360 (make sure to cover the vents). Keep it on for around 20 mins. Then after take off the towels, and let the system cool for another 20 mins. This should let it run for atleast another 2 hours.
