Trying to turn xbox on and getting blinking red ring around power button


This problem is often called the Red ring of Death.

It's actually very common and is caused by a hardware malfunction that causes the system to overheat.

There are 2 ways to fix this problem: 1) Send it to Microsoft (if your warranty is expired it will cost $110)

2) Fix it at home by taking the system apart and repairing the malfunction. This can be daunting, but is actually easier than it sounds. I recommend having a look at these 2 sites:

So I started my xbox up one day after a night of gaming. Given there was an eleven hour window of it not being used; it was rather cold (room temp). I went to turn it on via controller, and I noticed that...


I can tell you why...because Microsoft made it and they tell you not to use a fan (because it will void your warranty) but if you don't the system overheats and you get the two rings of death....now for the solution. Whatever you do, don't send it to Microsoft for repairs because it could take weeks and all they do is send you a different refurbished one that will probably break faster than the one you had.

You can try and fix it yourself:

or take it to a person that works on computers, more than likely they have fixed many. Xbox's are just like computers and I have had the pleasure of fixing more than I would like too.

Hope this helps!

2 red lights come on on my console and turns of


The Red Ring OF Death!!!

Its a heating problem, the system has become to hot in its period and melted the soldier inside.

Right if you give microsoft a ring, they extended there warrenty to 3 years as this was a very popular problem, and they will arrange for it to be picked up free of charge and fixed for you.

hope this helps

2 red rings after the xclamp fix


Yesh...4 red lights means you didn't have the component or hdmi pluged into the system and tv. 3 lights means there is some soldering problem in your 360. 2 lights means your 360 is overheated. For the 2 lights normally you can fix that with letting it cool for a while and give it some room around the system to run cooler. However by using the towel trick you you caused the soldering to run and now it's probibly miss soldered. I recommend you ship to Microsoft or sell it.

2 Red Lights Xbox 360


You need to change the thermal compound.But if you have make sure you have 1 WASHER ABOVE THE MOTHERBOARD! 2 washers above are too many. try that and let me know how you got on

I had this exact issue 2 washers make the heatsink sit off the GPU Die. 1 allows it to touch the GPU DIE

If it still under warranty, contact Microsoft for a replacement.
There is no permanent fix for the Red Ring of Death.

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!
