Thanks for your question. To fix the 3 red lights what you will need to do is stop the heat getting to the GPU and the CPU and to do this you can use a good Xbox 360 Repair guide or of course you can send it in to microsoft.

SOURCE: Xbox 360 red light four red lights on the front of console

Yes you can fix it. Four red lights on is an indication that the video cable is not plugged into the console. I suggest you check and see if the pins in the cable and unit are not damaged and the cable is fully in the AV port. If all is well, than borrow another cable from a friend and try it in your console or try yours in theirs.

Im sorry but this is the equivelant of a car being written off. It cant be fixed, simple as that. If it is possible to be fixed, it would work out cheaper to just buy a new one

SOURCE: Scratched Xbox 360 motherboard

Hi,

Usually if a motherboard has been scored or damaged.
( tracks or resistors/capacitors dislodged et,c )
The board is in the Bin. ( scrap ) unless the damage can be repaired. The RROD Or red-ring of death. Is usually due to the x-clamps fitted to the console initially, by the manufacturer.
Replacing the x-clamps, with a kit ( bolts/washers thermal Compound ) And 4 x heatpads recommended. Can cure the RROD. And in my own experience the 1 red light And E74 error.

Bottom line, if the boards scratched. it,s in the Bin.

Lenovo USB port bent pins


The USB port/socket needs to be replaced it cannot be repaired.
It is not an easy DIY job, you need to take it to an IBM laptop repair center or a laptop repair shop.

My 360 won't power up. Orange light on power supply. No extention cord, changed wall plug, bought new power supply, removed face plate and nothing changed.


Have a look into the usb ports on the front right of the console, look for any damage or bent pins, if any pins are touching this will cause a short, so the console will not turn on.
Or it could be an internal resistor problem, which would be best looked at by a pro repair center.

Tried to turn on my Xbox 360 today and it's dead. It will not come on. What type of problem is this and how can it be fixed?


This could be something simple, or something terminal,
If you are using a play and charge kit, remove the cable.
What is the status of the power pack?orange light good, red light means the power pack has overheated, let it cool, then make sure it is well ventilated, if it stays red, you need a replacement.
It could be a bent pin in the usb ports, have a check, if any are touching bend them back.
If its non of these, you may have a resistor problem, I can tell you which ones, but if you don't know what you are doing, you are best to get it repaired professionally.
Remember to thumbs up if this helps.

Xbox wont turn on and all of the cords are in


1st check light on power brick, red means it has overheated, let it cool and give it more ventilation.
2nd are you using a play and charge kit, if so remove the cable, this happens with mine sometimes.
3rd look into the usb ports on the right hand side under the big flap (this is easier if you remove the faceplate) look for damage or bent pins this will short the unit so it won't turn on, just bund any pins back.
4th it may be a resister fault, you would be best to book a repair with a professional repair centre.
Remember thumbs up if this helps.

This sounds like it could be one of the usb ports,unplug the console and remove the faceplate, see if there is a bent pin, this will short out the console, just stop them touching the console will work.
Let me know if this helps.
