I have found that some machines cannot be placed verticle after making that repair. Also, you need to completely wait till the machine is cold again after you flow the solder, then put it back together. Thanks!

Everytime i turn my xbox360 on its flashing red like it the red ring of death


1 Red Light

Your system indicates this error when only the bottom right part of the ring is flashing. When you have 1 red light on the Xbox 360, it is usually associated with an error code you see on the screen, such as the Xbox 360 error code E74.

Searching for this error code online or in the Microsoft support site will give you the description and solution. Usually the problem lies on the DVD drive whether it is the wrong firmware or lacks a chip.

It may also be a hard drive error which can be resolved by taking it out and putting it back in or it can be a voltage error which usually occurs if you have added accessories to it. It is best to research the error code so you know exactly what to do.

2 Red Lights

One of the most common is when two red lights are flashing. No need to panic if you see only see the Xbox 360 2 red lights. Its sole meaning is that the console is too hot and needs to cool down. Power down the system and try again in a few minutes or if possible after an hour or two.

After giving the system some rest and playing in a much cooler environment, you should be back to your gaming in better performance. If the problem persists however, you may need to have it serviced to have the cooling issue fixed.

3 Red Lights

If you see three flashing lights, you are experiencing the infamous Xbox three red lights problem that many other gamers are frustrated with. You may also know it as the Red Ring of Death.

At one point 1 out of every 3 Xbox 360 owners experienced this problem. This is the one error that you do not want to get. This highlights that there is a serious Xbox 360 hardware problem.

Your options are to send your console back to Microsoft for repair or to fix it yourself. Be prepared to spend a nice amount of money ($140 or so) if you are sending your system to Microsoft and you no longer have the Xbox 360 warranty.

If you want to try to fix the problem yourself then you can see reviews of guides that we recommend to show you step by step how to perform the repair.

4 Red Lights

If you have to get any flashing lights on your Xbox 360, pray that this is the one. If the entire ring flashes, it is a minor problem that indicates that the AV cable isn't connected properly or in rare instances, the cable is damaged. Make sure everything is properly connected and replace it if It still doesn't work.

3 red lights on xbox360 and screen problems


Hi there!

The three flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with your Xbox 360 console. The main thing that causes the 3 red lights to start flashing is because of overheating and as the motherboard within the console takes more heat it actually warps and bends until the solders become loose.

Once this happens you will receive the 3 red lights. Even before you get the 3 red lights you may have noticed your games freezing and this is caused in the same way, by overheating. As the chips take more heat they shut off to prevent lasting damage, although they can only do this a number of times until you get the Xbox 360 3 Red Lights.

To fix the problem you need to stop the level of heat the motherboard takes and you can do this in a number of ways, but it will involve opening up your Xbox and working on it. In addition, you could always send your Xbox back to Microsoft as they are offering free repair for this error, you will just need to wait 3-4 weeks that’s all.

Cheers!

well you can call the xbox assitance and they will tell you to put in the xbox serial number, your state, adress, etc. you have the 3 rings of death, so what they will do they will send you a box for you to put your xbox and send it back to get it fixed, this only works if you have the 1 year warranty, if you do they will fix it for free, if you dont you have to pay, but its worth it.
