When I turn on my xbox 360 3 red lights come on but nothing else happens is it possible for my brick to be bad and only allowing the lights to come on and nothing else


This issue is the infamous "Red Rings of Death". Unfortunately, you will need to send your Xbox back to Microsoft to get it fixed. You can call Microsoft at 800-4MY-XBOX for a price estimation.

My XBOX 360 power button does not come on but the power supply is on and looks like it is getting power but box will not come on.


When you say it will not pwer on do you mean nothing on the front panel lights up? No 2 red lights or 3 red lights? If the console itself will not turn on at all it sounds like there was either a voltage problem and a part of the Mobo was fried or the switch itself is broken. Try hitting the eject button, if the xbox powers on and the tray opens then you know it is the front switch. If nothing happens you have a very expensive paper weight unless you are still under warranty, in that case contact Microsoft customer service and get it sent in.

Xbox 360 won't turn on and the kids are upset.


Press the power button on the front of the Xbox to turn it on.

As you're doing this look at the power supply to see if the amber light turns green.

If the light does not turn green, you'll need to get a new power supply.

  1. To begin troubleshooting this problem, check if the auto-off feature is turned on. To check if the auto-off feature is turned on, follow these steps:
    1. Start the Xbox 360 console without a disc in the disc tray.
    2. In the System section of the Xbox 360 Dashboard, select Console Settings.
    3. In the Console Settings area, select Auto-Off.
    4. Examine the option to see if it set for auto-off. If it is set for auto-off, change your selection.
  2. If the auto-off feature is not turned on and this is the first time the Xbox 360 console has turned off unexpectedly, let's do a simple test before we continue troubleshooting.

    To do this test, turn the Xbox 360 off for about 10 minutes. Then turn the console on and see if the problem occurs again. If the Xbox 360 console turns off unexpectedly again, make a note of how long the Xbox 360 console is on before the console turns off automatically.
  3. If the auto-off feature is turned off but the problem happens again, check the appearance of the Ring of Light to determine what to do next.
    • The two lights in the left quadrant of the Ring of Light flash red: The internal temperature of the Xbox 360 console may be too high. In this case, turn off the Xbox 360 console, and let it cool down. It may take several hours for the console to cool enough.

      Also, make sure that the ventilation openings on the console are not blocked. (For example, the ventilation openings may be blocked if you place the Xbox 360 console on a soft surface, like a bed or a sofa.) Also make sure that the console is not located in a poorly-ventilated place, such as an enclosed bookcase or stereo cabinet. For more information about what to do if the two red lights in the left quadrant on the Ring of Light flash red, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 907533 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/907533/ ) Two of the lights on the Ring of Light on the front of your Xbox 360 console flash red
    • No lights are flashing on the Ring of Light: In this case, we should check the lights on the Xbox 360 power supply for hints on how to fix the problem. A green light indicates that the power supply is correctly functioning.

Xbox 360 elite 1 red light


When you get any of these messages appearing on your screen with one red light flashing on the ROL of your Xbox 360 console that's an indicator of a hardware problem with the console connection to one of the parts connected to it as the hard drive or cables.
So, first disconnect all power and AV cables from the back of your Xbox 360 console and also unplug the power cord from the wall socket, wait for a minute then reconnect them all back and try to turn on your Xbox 360 console once more.
If that doesn't work, it seems then to be a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so turn off the console again and remove the hard drive then turn on your Xbox 360 console without the hard drive, supposed then to work fine, it might be an intermittent issue and when you reconnect the hard drive your Xbox 360 will work fine all after, or it will just work fine without the hard drive so it will be then definitely a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so call Xbox 360 customer support to exchange the hard drive for you.
The number for Microsoft is usually listed on the back of any game manual.

I hope I was able to fixya problem, and Happy Gaming!
