    easy, one of the cables int the back of the xbox is unplugged, that is only if the red ring is flashing.

You have to take the xbox apart open the dvd/cd rome and clean the eye and the disk spinner then put it back together and it should work fine

Unplug everything except the power cable and put the xbox on a towel and put another towel on top try to cover the whole thing. turn it on and let it over heat for about 30 minutes. take the towels off and let it cool down for about 15 minutes. plug it back in and dominate!!

    orange and Red flashing is probably overheating of the Graphics processor, if you're up to it get some TOrx screw drivers open it up, clean out the dust, or if that doesn't work open the Nvidia heatsink (metal grill), add some thermal grease neatly and put it all back together.

Try to let it cool down if it's overheated, but if it isn't overheated, try replacing the motherboard. If none of this works, then your Xbox is done for.

Cannot open the disk and cannot read the disk as well. The green light at the center of the ring always blinking


Hello
If you only get a flashing green light on the center while you turn on the console. You should get a green light going in a circle around the center light, (the 4 other lights, that can turn red as well (famous Red Ring of death))
if you don't get any red or green lights around the flashing center ring, then the console is not able to turn on / boot up properly and is in need of repairs, check the powersupply led, what color is it? it should be green when you power on and orange when not in use.

Flashing red ring on x box 360 console


3 Blinking red lights often means that your Xbox 360 has suffered from hardware failure.

4 Blinking red lights means that your Audio / Video cable is not correctly connected (it's the colorful one; Red, white, yellow; green, blue, red if Component)

If it IS just three lights, and you bought your xbox 360 under three years ago, call 1-800-4MY-XBOX
