When someone say that his/her Xbox is having 3 red lights problem, It means it needs to be repaired. If you are using Cooler than it is not a cure but a prevention. You could have used cooler before acutally having the problem just to prevent your Xbox. But now you will have to either get it repaired from Microsoft (in case your Xbox's warranty is not expired, but one thing to note is that you will have to wait for at least 3-4 weeks to get back your Xbox) or you can Fix your Xbox's 3 Flashing red lights problem yourself with the help of DIY Video guide available on Internet. You can fix yourself without any technical knowledge.

I bought a xbox360 off of craigslist and i got the red ring dont know how to fix it help please


3 red lights on the Xbox 360 is the most common error and it means "General Hardware failure. To fix this you need to stop the amount of heat that the GPU and the CPU is taking.

To do this you can use the recommended guide that has been on the market for 3 years or you can send it in.

3 red lights on my xbox 360 please help


Hey cozierterry,

While this may be an indicator that something is wrong with your Xbox 360, there are a couple of things that you may want to consider before seeking additional assistance.

According to information provided by the manufacturer, the light on your Xbox 360's power supply should still light up green even when the console has encountered a three red light problem. If the light on the power supply isn't green, you will want to take different actions based on what color is displayed. If this light is red, the AC adaptor may either be defective or has recently overheated. If the light is orange, you may need to double-check all cable connections are secure. If the light on the AC adaptor isn't lit, the AC adaptor may need to be replaced.

Alternatively, you may want to try turning the Xbox 360 off, then pressing the power button again roughly 10-15 seconds later. If the unit powers on normally and the three red lights disappear, the system may simply have needed to be reset.

Should the problem persist however, you may need to speak directly with Microsoft for further assistance, as three red lights often indicate a hardware failure that requires repairs. You can reach Microsoft's toll-free Xbox support hotline at 800-4MY-XBOX (800-469-9269), or you can always request service through the Xbox website:

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

3 red lights


red light of death. Try turrning it off let it sits for a while then turn it back on if it still does that then the xbox is dead. unfortunatley this is a common problem with xbox 360 MS has extended the warranty on these and there's plenty of articles out there on these xbox.

call them and get them to fix it or replace the machine for you.

sorry i don't think anyone can help you.

good luck

You don't need any money mate. Microsoft recently extended their warranty to 3 years for the three red lights problem. all you have to do is get in touch with microsoft and tell them about the three red lights, and they should either repair your X Box or they will replace it with a new one.
Good luck mate
