One light flashes red on xbox 360


Got answer from WikiAnswers give credit!
Meaning of Red Light on xbox 360 Is this the Ring of Death?
No, either you have one of your cords unplugged, such as the RCAjacks, or some other hardware issue that probably isn't as serious as one you would have with the 3 light ring of death.


How to fix it.
Since it's just one light in the red ring, you may be in luck. Most times, this error can be resolved by powering off your xbox, unplugging it from the back, then unplugging the power brick. Plug them all back in and power the box back up. If this doesn't take care of the problem, microsoft also suggests taking the harddrive out and putting it back in.


If all else fails.
It may be time to contact Microsoft support. Hopefully you can save you info. Goodluck.

X box360 flashing red light


Where is the flashing light? If it is at the 3rd position (bottom right) only, then the screen should say E68 error. If this is true, turn off the system, take off the harddrive, put the harddrive back on and turn the system back on. This happens to mine frequently. If its 3 of the lights, then you are out of luck my friend. Red Ring of Death...

The video dont work and error 86 comes up on the screen


The E86 error code is a hard drive error, remove your harddrive and try powering up. If it works without it, try reformating the xbox 360 harddrive.
THIS WILL DELETE EVERYTHING:
Settings > System Info and press Y, Up (left stick), Down (left stick), X, A.


If that does not work you may need to purchase a new harddrive, you can get them online, or in most stores.

Red light blinking on front of xbox 360


How many red lights flashed? One, or three?

One means that your harddrive isn't seated correctly.
Three means that your console is more or less screwed, and needs to be repaired by Microsoft.

Bought a new hard drive for the xbox 360 ,and after running the upgrade all I get when I turn it on is a system error and a red light flashing on the console


Take a look at the screen you should find a number for the error code there like E80 or E79.
If it is E80 this means that the update went wrong and that the consoles kernel wasnt flashed completely.
This can often be fixed with an NXE update recovery disc, search for it on Google, you can download it from Xbox.com.

If you are getting an error like E67, E68 ,E69, E79 or something similar it will be harddrive related very likely, disconnect the harddrive and try to power the console if the problem is gone get a harddrive replacement, call Xbox Support they will take care of that...

If you should be getting a different error code take a look at this error code list this will tell you whats causing this certain error and how it can be fixed: http://xbox-experts.com/e/errorcodes.php

I hope this helps.

Call Microsoft. There was a deal they put out to fix the red death you are getting. Only certain manufacture dates apply, so best to search on this.

HELP


will be a hardware error
will have to contact microsoft there is a temperory fix for this problem. what you need is two towels just normal bathroom towels take everything out of your xbox e.g
harddrive,controlers etc only things to leave in is the av cable and power supply as you wanna turn
on the xbox lie a towel flat on the ground and lie the xbox on its side ontop of the towel turn the
xbox on, you will see the error message and the red lights flash. wrap the towel around your xbox
covering the air vents and then the 2nd towel put over the top. leave it on in the towels for about
20 mins then after that take all the towels off turn off the console and leave to cool down for 15
mins. turn the xbox on and it should restart again fine but only lasts for a couple of days then you
have to do it again. wont fix it but will let u play while microsoft gets it.
