3 red lights box under 3 years old


RED LIGHT OF DEATH!
The three flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with your Xbox 360 motherboard or power supply.You can test power supply with a voltmeter from power supply wires to the connections on the motherboard. If no power or low power, the supply is bad. If there is plenty of power, then motherboard could have bad capacitor or chipset on it causing the problems. You can test those with an ohmmeter to see which component is not the same.

3 red flashing lights


When you turn on the console, look at the light on the power supply. The power supply light should illuminate green even if the three lights on the Ring of Light flash red. If the power supply is button is red than you need to replace the battery or check the connections.

The three flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with your Xbox 360 console. If you are experiencing this problem, you can submit a console-repair request online.

Hopefully your system is still under warranty.

X-box 360 wont turn on


Is your power box light orange or green. It should be orange if turned off and go green when turned on if it is red your power supply box is no good you can unplug it leave off for 10 minutes or so then try again if light doesn't go orange you won't be able to turn it on. I had the same problem and it was power supply box with red light got new one works great.

Unfortunately this is a very touchy situation. There is one home method for curing this problem.

1). Wrap your Xbox 360 Console COMPLETELY with a towel, so you can only see the power button, and the three flashing red lights.

2). Power on your console.

3). Leave for 30-45 minutes.

4). Power off the console.

5). Unwrap the towel from the console.

6). Power on.

**Problem Solved** If not continue reading.

After that you are unfortunately forced to call the dreaded Microsoft Customer Support Line

1-800-4-MY-XBOX
1-800-469-9269

And ask to create a repair order, they will send you a Purolator (or FedEx) shipping box. You have to send your console to them, they will repair it and have it to you within (2-3 business weeks).
