Re: center light flashing red and green

If you have not "opened" your Xbox (taken the case off the main unit) and you are having problems, think about calling 1-800-4MY-XBOX that is the customer support number for Microsoft. If you have had it less than 90 days it should be covered under warranty. If you open the unit they will no longer fix your system for a reasonable charge and it will be cheaper to buy a new one. Check out some of the light errors here It depends on your exact sequence of flashing lights as to the exact problem. Hope this helps.

Sometimes the console will not load to the screen where the big (xbox360) icon, the lights around the on/off button flash profusely and it seems as though the screen has frozen. if the loading gets past...

Those are common error on the XBox 360, after some extended use. You can try to send it to be repaired, and if it happens again, consider the purchase of a newer model.

Cannot open the disk and cannot read the disk as well. The green light at the center of the ring always blinking

If you only get a flashing green light on the center while you turn on the console. You should get a green light going in a circle around the center light, (the 4 other lights, that can turn red as well (famous Red Ring of death))
if you don't get any red or green lights around the flashing center ring, then the console is not able to turn on / boot up properly and is in need of repairs, check the powersupply led, what color is it? it should be green when you power on and orange when not in use.

Xbox power light blinks and freezes xbox

That flashing green light meens there is a problem with the power to you DVD drive. the power is being interrupted. ie, when you have power the welcome screen will load and when it doesn't it will shut off. you don't have continuos power. For example if you have the power cable unpluged and then plug it in with the power on the xbox will reboot. Check the wires and the port on the motherboard if all is ok you need a new drive.

My new hand control just flashs green all the time

When you tried to use the new controller did you sinc it with the Xbox? There is a very small button on the front of the controller at the center. You need to turn the XBox360 on, then your controller and press the small button at the center front. Your next step is to press the small button on the XBox360 console located to the left of the power button. Both the controller and XBox360 should start to flash until they sinc up.

4 red lights flashing

Hi there,

The TV screen or monitor remains black when you start an Xbox 360 console.

This behavior may occur with or without a game disc in the disc tray. The console appears to be on because the green power light illuminates and the fan continues to operate. However, the screen remains black.

Click on the IMAGE i paste here below:

Thank you,

Flashing red and green light in xbox

You have a major failure on the motherboard. If it was your hard drive the system will boot up, but freeze on the main screen and you will hear clicking coming out of the hard drive. Red and Green flashing lights means there is a problem on the motherboard. Sometimes you can fix the problem by reflashing the Bios on the main motherboard.
