There is not a fix without taking it apart.... Any game store in Nashville could fix it... It is a problem with overheating in the xbox... they will have to take it apart and do whats called an "x-clamp fix" it makes it so the GPU and CPU doesn't get so hot... Please Rate answer.!. Good luck! :D

Is your xbox 360 gone when it blinks 3 times red


No, 3 red light means that your GPU Chip has gotten separated from the motherboard, you can either send it for repair through xbox.com or look for a local repair shop that repairs xbox consoles.

Thanks

One red ringon xbox360


Hi, there are about 17 error codes that go along with one red light on your 360. It ranges from a bad hard drive to a bad DVD flash chip. The most common problem is the e-74 error code which is a result of a GPU malfunction. This can be repaired by doing an x-clamp replacement on the 360. If your 360 is still under warranty, then I would suggest that you send it back to Microsoft and they will repair it for free. If it isn't then I would recommend that you take it into a repair shop to have it fixed. The benefit to taking it into a shop instead of doing it yourself is the shop will give you some sort of warranty in case it happens again.

How do i fix the x box 360 3 red rings of death


The Xbox 360 e74 error is a rather common problem on Xbox consoles, with similar roots to the now infamous red ring of death problem.
The e74 issue is actually caused by a problem with the scaler (ANA or HANA) chips located next to the graphics processor inside your Xbox 360.
It is believed that the error with the scaler video chip which causes the e74 error on your Xbox 360 is caused by overheating. This is also the cause of other errors such as the no video problem, as well as red lights in the power ring of an Xbox console.

To fix the Xbox 360 e74 code, there are a few steps you need to take-
1. Firstly, leave this article open, go to your Xbox 360 console and then remove the AV cable. Blow any dust out of it, then re-insert it snugly back into the console until a clicking is heard. Power on your console again and see if the problem has been fixed.
2. If that does not work, borrow another AV cable (get one off a friend or family member, or from your local video game rental shop) Try using this one in your Xbox 360.
3. If replacing the AV cable does not work, then you will have to repair the scaler chip and graphics processor inside your Xbox in order to fix the e74 problem. To do this, you will need an Xbox 360 repair guide, which will contain the video instruction files you need to be able to fix your console properly. You cannot fix the e74 yourself without one.
It is important to note that most Xbox repair guides focus on fixing the "red ring of death". However, the process for repairing the e74 will also be covered in the same guide as well, as it is extremely similar.

Xbox 360 red light four red lights on the front of console


Yes you can fix it. Four red lights on is an indication that the video cable is not plugged into the console. I suggest you check and see if the pins in the cable and unit are not damaged and the cable is fully in the AV port. If all is well, than borrow another cable from a friend and try it in your console or try yours in theirs.

Xbox 360 3 red lights can anyone please help?


That has absolutely nothing to do with the Hard drive. The red ring of death is a standard misfunction with the Xbox 360. You will have to contact your local game stores to see if they do Red ring of death fixes, send it in to microsoft, or attempt to red ring fix it yourself.

Red ring o death


Taking the xbox 360 apart voids warranty, so i strongly suggest that you don't.

If you have red rings then it's best to phone the Microsoft Support Line for assistance.

*There are a number of 'fixes' with videos on youtube.

Try squeezing the side of the 360 firmly, this may solve your problem. Anymore questions just post again.
