Re: x box 360

I hope you have warranty. your xbox is overheating and well, that is that. if you have a warranty then you can send it in and get a new one. If you don't I believe it is about $150 or a bit less and you can send it in a get a new one. One odd trick that I have learned about is wrapping the unit in a towel and allowing it to overheat. This will eventually will put out the overheating and it will work just as new. just remember when not in use, take out the plug. connie

To many problems in less then ten minutes

3 red lights on the Xbox 360 is the most common error and it means "General Hardware failure. To fix this you need to stop the amount of heat that the GPU and the CPU is taking.

To do this you can use the recommended guide that has been on the market for 3 years or you can send it in.

The freeze ups happen just before the red lights.

My xbox 360 freezes after being on for a couple of minutes. How do i stop this

If it freezes and then the next time you turn it on has red lights on the console display check out the corresponding Microsoft articles for the number of red rings on the display. They appear in quadrants on it.
1 red ring
2 red rings
3 red rings
4 red rings

If you do not have any rings, your console may just be overheating. Give it a while to cool down and if that doesn't work, give Microsoft a call: 1-800-4MYXBOX. Good Luck!

Red Light on Plug in connecter thing

Sounds like there is something wrong with the Xbox 360 power supply, try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console and unplug the power cord from the wall outlet also unplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord. Give it a minute then reconnect it all back, also try it on another wall outlet without any extension cord at all.

If it's still red that suggests fault with your Xbox 360 power supply so will need to contact Xbox 360 customer support if its under warranty they should be able to sort it out for you. If out of warranty it might cost you for a new power supply!
