Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
One of your colleagues suggested putting a towel over she thought it may be over heating please could you come back to me
There are 4 lights on the "ring of lights" around the power button on the front of your console, the number of lights showing determines the problem.
I know for a fact that if you have 3 red lights, the screen is blank and the light on the power box (gray box with power cords to the wall) is green, try these steps, make sure all the cables are inserted fully (disconnect all of them and reconnect them after 1-5mins) try restarting the system. If this doesn't fix the problem, there is a hardware problem that x-box won't release the info on how to fix it your self, but they offer a 3 year warranty on just this problem.
Make sure your console and power cord are in a well ventilated area away from heat sources and in a cool dry area. TV's, Heaters, beds, and carpeted floors are not good places for an xbox. Try moving your console to an open shelf away from these areas and not enclosed (no doors or leave doors open).
If these tips haven't helped, add a comment to your post and I will try my best to zero in on the problem you're having. Some things to consider adding to your post can include how many red lights? Is it a problem with the game disk? Is it a problem with online? What color is the light on the power cord? Where exactly do you have the system?
I should warn you that putting a towel over the system to "cook" it may work temporarily, but it could cause serious damage to your system that won't be covered by any warranty.
I hope I could help you solve the problem and don't forget to rate and comment! Thank you.
