Make sure you have all the clamps on the chips tight. If one pops loose it will cause this.

Xbox console three-quater red powerbutton,what can i do plse


This is called Red Ring of Death or RROD by the community, it means that the CPU or GPU or both have a bad solder joint, that is caused from rapid heating and cooling from poor cooling design of the xbox 360. To fix it is pretty simple. Follow these instructions to take apart your 360: http://www.rrodfix.com/how-to-take-apart-the-microsoft-xbox-360-game-console.html Stop once you've removed the dvd drive. Now Remove the fans from the back, and set them on the heatsink on the right the flat one, and make sure they are pointing where the air is going up. Put a peice of of carboard or plastic something non conductive in between the heatsinks to prevent airflow from the fans. Turn on the 360, and leave it til it goes from 3 rings to 2 rings, wait 3 minutes, then switch the fan over to the other side. Wait about as long as you did for the other one then turn off the 360. Wait 1 hour for the 360 to cool off. DO NOT move the 360 while it is cooling down durning this period or you will permantly ruin it, the solder is being reflowed. After an hour, put the fans back, and turn the 360 on, it should work. Once its working, I recommend doing a 12 volt mod on the fans to prevent RROD from happening again, and changing out the thermal paste with artic silver 5.

Whenever i turn on my xbox, around the power button turns all red and the xbox dashboard does not show up, what is happening?


If you have 4 red lights that would indicate the video cable is not connected correctly. Disconnecte the video cable and reconnect it.
The 3 red lights issue is known as the red ring of death(or RROD)
This is caused by the x clamps used to hold down the processor.
The x clamps cause to much pressure which causes the xbox 360 to think it is over heating. Microsoft has issued a extended warranty for the RROD issue. You can reach Microsoft by calling 1800 my xbox. The link below is to a Youtube video walk through on how to resolve the issue.

3 red lights flas when power is turned on


You have what is known as the xbox Red Ring Of Death aka... RROD.

If you are the original purchaser - Microsoft is fixing them for free (but you will be without your XBox for about 6 weeks.)

Basically - the RROD is from not enough thermal compound between the heatsink and processor. It overheats and goes into 3 light error mode.

There are sites that will fix (for a fee) and even videos on YouTube that describe how to fix it yourself if you are inclined to do that.

It entails opening up (and voiding your warranty) the 360. There are so many hidden screws and latches - it is imperative to find a video or step-by step instruction on opening it properly.

I would suggest sending in to Microsoft so your warranty is not compromised.

Otherwise - see THIS SITE for step by step instructions on opening, cleaning, and replacing the thermal compound.

Other places can be found simply by googling "RROD FIX" or try YouTube and look at some "RROD FIX" videos.

Call Microsoft and tell them you got the RRoD, again, and they will fix it up for free. They dont check for RRoD.

THe xbox 360 has three red flashing lights when you turn it on. Nothing else comes on. How much will this cost to fix.


Hi, this is a common problem known as the RRoD or the Red Ring of Death. If you xbox is still under warranty, call microsoft and they will fix it for you for free. Microsoft's fix is sometimes temporary. You can also fix it yourself permanently with a DIY step by step video guide with very easy to follow instructions that costs only $29.

Thisi s probably a precursor to the RRoD. Basically had the same thing happen to me a few weeks ago. Call MSFT (800 4myxbox) and tell them you have the rrod and you'll get it fixed for free.
