The AV cable cannot be detected

THINGS TO TRY

  1. Make sure that the AV cable is correctly connected to the Xbox 360 console.
  2. Disconnect the AV cable from the Xbox 360 console, and then reconnect the AV cable to the Xbox 360 console.
  3. If the four flashing red lights continue to flash, try wiping the metal area of the AV pack with a dry cloth. The metal area is the end that plugs into the console. Wipe the metal area thoroughly, and then try the AV Pack again.
  4. If the AV cable is correctly connected but the four red lights are still flashing, substitute a different AV cable if you have one available.

It´s 3 red ligths, and no start.


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.

3 red light in my 360 console


Yes the 3 red lights is caused by overheating, namely the GPU and the CPU overheat and shut down to prevent damage to the console.

You will need to get it fixed by sending it in or repairing it yourself.

Hope this helps!

Problems picture not showing


Red ring is not the only problem with Microsoft Xbox 360. This amazing device also has some more common problems like Audio but no video problem, disc read error etc. Microsoft is providing extended warranty only for red ring problem. Means you will have to spend some money to get this problem repaired also if you plan to send your xbox to Microsoft, you will have to wait for 3-4 weeks to get back your favourite Xbox. There is one more option in the form of DIY guide, this guide explains solving No Video problem with step by step instruction, so any novice can fix this problem..........

Exbox 360 4 red ligths


4 red light is a problem with your AV cable.
THINGS TO TRY
  1. Make sure that the AV cable is correctly connected to the xbox 360
  2. Disconnect the AV cable from the Xbox 360 console, and then reconnect the AV cable to the Xbox 360 console.
  3. If the four flashing red lights continue to flash, try wiping the metal area of the AV pack with a dry cloth. The metal area is the end that plugs into the console. Wipe the metal area thoroughly, and then try the AV Pack again.
  4. If the AV cable is correctly connected but the four red lights are still flashing, substitute a different AV cable if you have one available.

    You can also check to see what the error code is yourself if your not sure whats wrong with it.

    To do this, you turn your x-box on, press the Connect button on the console itself and hold it in. Now press the DVD eject button to and look at the lights. it should be flashing 1 light, 2 lights, 3 lights, or 4 lights. grab a piece of paper and write down how many lights are showing. While still holding the connect button, press the eject button again. Write down how many lights are showing again. Then press eject again, and write it down. Then do it one more time and write it down. After you do this, then come back on fixya.com and let me know what error code it is.

    1 Red light = 1
    2 Red lights = 2
    3 Red lights = 3
    4 red lights = 0

    so an example of what you might write down would be:
    0
0
0
1

which would be 0001.

If you figure out the error, you can also visit the following website and determine what it is and if you can fix it yourself:
