My son had the same problem exactly a yr ago, and when I checked at the local games shop here, it is a common problem with the xbox!. I had to phone microsoft, which didn't turn out to be too bad, and then had to send the whole (silver) hard drive to them. It took about 2-3 weeks, from memory, but all was free (including post/handling) due to the warranty. I'm from Australia, and it was good to know it could be fixed in my own country,which I was worried about.

While driving car the engine fan motor started running sounding real loud and then the dash lites began flashing on and off the battery lite came on the lite with wrench lite came on


Bit vague but I would start with the coolant. Is there any coolant in the system ? Might have caused an over-heat.
Which warning lights flashed apart from the battery ?
Check your water and oil (by "water" I mean coolant).
An over heating engine will cause all sorts of christmas tree lights to go beserk.

Lyric to song I believe in christmas


Do you believe in fairy tales?
I don't know
But I do believe in Christmas

Walking through a winter dreamland
Sleighbells ringing and my friends by my side
I know we're having fun together
Out on a Christmas ride

The snow is falling all around me
The reindeer is singing our favourite song
And Santa's coming to our party
Dancing all night long

Cause I believe in Christmas
I believe in dreams come true
When it's cold outside
I close my eyes
And it's magic through and through
I believe in Christmas
I believe in Santa's gifts
All the bells will ring
The angels sing
And Christmas time is here
For you and for me

The stars are shining oh so brightly
The snowman's hopping and bopping with me
Lots of joy for everybody
Under the Christmas tree
Everyone is so excited
You know it's just how I want it to be
I'm hoping that all my wishful thinking
Will be reality

Cause I believe in Christmas
I believe in dreams come true
When it's cold outside
I close my eyes
And it's magic through and through
I believe in Christmas
I believe in Santa's gifts
All the bells will ring
The angels sing
And Christmas time is here
For you and for me

For real
I can't wait cause Santa is coming to town
Oh yeah, yeah
He's gonna make your Christmas dreams come true

Cause I believe in Christmas
I believe in dreams come true
When it's cold outside
I close my eyes
And it's magic through and through
I believe in Christmas
I believe in Santa's gifts
All the bells will ring
The angels sing
And Christmas time is here
For you

The graphics went crappy then it light up red around the on and off button


You have the red ring of death.

Your xbox isn't getting enough power or the xbox is overheating...

There was a design issue with the older xbox's that caused them to overheat.

If you can return it or exchange it it would recommend doing that.

If not, I used this method to get mine working:

It was a weekend project. My xbox worked for a short time after then died again.

Why do some christmas lights blink?


Blinking christmas are a special type of christmas light. These look like regular clear Christmas light bulbs with one exception: The tip of the glass bulb is painted red or silver to indicate it is the bulb that will turn on the string's ability to blink.

Sorround sound switchboard lit up and quit working.


If the fan is making weird noises there is either something wrong with the bearing or it has ingested something.

Maybe you could look, listen closely and determine which it is. If it's foreign matter you may be able to extract or vacuum it out. If it's just bearing noise, you have to decide how bothersome it is and if a shop visit is justified. A clog is BAD because the fan is protecting the unit from high temperatures.

Loud noise


Hi there, they may have changed the dvd drive.

the fans should be working you can tell if they work by just get a piece of paper and place it where the fans are to see if they blowing air out.

Or it could have been they have changed the drive. Microsoft may have added an exter heatsink.

Two Red Lights

The two left quadrants of the Ring of Light flash red on the front of the Xbox 360 console
This behavior occurs when the internal temperature of the console exceeds the acceptable limits. You may think of this as too hot, overheating, and so on. Make sure the fans are operating and the system has adequate ventilation.

Since you've been inside it's possible that a heatsink or some other part of the cooling system is not working properly or is loose. Check all these!

Good Luck!
