Most of the time when you have 2 red flashing lights one of the clamps has come loose holding down the cooler on the GPU or CPU.

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.

Three red lights flashing


Well mainly it is down to overheating, and as you play your games the motherboard flexes ever so slightly and the soldering snaps off and that is when you are left with the red lights of doom.

Step 1: Turn on the console, and check the light on your power supply
The power supply light is located on the black box that is in the middle of your power cord.

Step 2: If power supply light is green, try this solution

Step 3: If the power supply light is red, is orange when the console is powered on, or is not lit, try these solutions:

Solution A: Unplug your console, plug it into a different outlet in a different room, and then turn it on
This will help determine whether the problem is with your power supply, your power outlet, or your console.

Solution B: Request a replacement power supply
If the power supply light is still red, orange, or not lit, the problem is with your power supply. Contact Xbox Support to obtain a replacement power supply.

Good luck!

My console plays my games, but there is a full red ring? what does this mean?


OUCH! You have the red ring of death! Did you by chance have xbox on it's side for a long period of time instead of flat? If so, that's why. They say there made to do this, just like the old ps2's, It a load of ****. The laser lens circuit will need to be replaced. If you didn't have it on it's side, then you have a bad graphics chip, or cold solder joints, or the motherboard is shot.
