Usually the red light indicate that the hard drive has failed. you will have to mail it into X-box to get your unit serviced. it whould be under warranty and shouldnt cost you anything.

My x box 360 will not turn on & the ac adapter box light is lit up red


If you are getting a red light on the A/C adapter then your adapter has gone bad and you need to get a new one.

I have 3 red lights on it


try removing your harddrive and powering it on (without the harddrive).
You can also try replugging it in.

If neither of these work contact microsoft at 1-800-4MYXBOX and support should fix your 360 for free (you have a 3yr warranty against the 3 red lights), you will also receive a months gold supply for your inconvenience.

I play for +- 30 min and the powersupply goes on red is it the powersupply or the box


If you are getting a red light on the Xbox 360 power brick, That happens when the power supply gets to hot or its not getting enough juice. Try plugging it in somewhere else and see if that helps, and make sure not to use any UPS, surge protectors or power strips to plug in your AC adapter

also check if the power connector is firmly connected or not behind your xbox 360, if you still have a problem, check if you can borrow another Xbox 360 from anyone you know and swap the adapter and console which would help you know where the problem is

If none of this works, call up Microsoft for further help and support, since your problem may require servicing of your console.

If you are getting a Red Ring of light on the Xbox 360 power button, please clarify since it requires separate diagnostics.

Hope you get back to gaming on your Xbox 360 ASAP

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.

Red light blinking on front of xbox 360


How many red lights flashed? One, or three?

One means that your harddrive isn't seated correctly.
Three means that your console is more or less screwed, and needs to be repaired by Microsoft.

1 red light on 360


Make sure that all of the pins for the harddrive are lined up properly, and make sure that they aren't bent at all. If that doesn't work, it may just be a faulty drive, in which case you will probably have to replace it(the hard drive).
