    I have the same three red lights flashing and mine won't work either.

  • merkaliguy Feb 02, 2008

    mine has three red lights coming on about 15 min. into a game when i turn it on. so i turn it off then back on still with 3 red lights. my power bar turns orange when it goes into the three red lights. i sent it in to ms to fix and got it back in about 2 months with a free 1 month xboxlive card. and so i thought, cool they gave me something for my troubles. but only to find that it still had the same problem. still flashes the red lights within 10 to 15 min. into a game. kinda fed up with this. so asking everyone what to do now. other than calling ms and being put on hold for half an hour....

This is referred to as the 3 Rings of Death. Your power adapter has either overheated, or it has overheated and caused damage to your xbox. Contact Microsoftto apply for them to send a ups box out to your house to have it picked up and fixed.

I had the red ring of death for my XBox 360. I tried the towel trick, but it only lasted for a week each time before it broke again. I sent my XBox 360 for repairs to www.videogame911.com and had it back within a week and haven't had a error code since.

Haha see the only way to prevent this problem is to not play the game more than 4 hours... and do keep the console in an open lace where it can ventilate enough air to cool down.

Unfortunately there is nothing that you can directly do to fix this problem without voiding your warranty,. This means that if you attempt to repair it and fail MS will not fix it for you.. The "Fix" posted by others SOMETIMES works, but NOT ALWAYS.

Pleae be careful with your expesive gear!

You have a hardware failure. Microsoft will repair your unit for you under warranty / recall.

No pic or sound on tv Red liight flashing on tv. No response from remote. ?


You did not list Brand or Model number for your product. There are hundreds of brands and red flashing lights usually indicate a fault or failure using a blink code, More information is required to process your inquiry.
