Easy just put something that covers the fans in the back and turn the xbox on and never turn it off and the red lights of death will appear.

Hi guys, My suggestion to all of you without the 3 red light problem, is to call the MS customer service and report you have the red light problem. They will ask you to follow some instructions, you have to be in front of your console, and ALWAYS tell them the light of your power source of your console is GREEN, they will ask you your address and they will pick your console and bring you A BRAND NEW CONSOLE WITH 3 YEARS GUARANTEE. I did it this way, it really works.

Keep wrapping it in towels leave it in towels for about 1hr then after about 1hr but straight in to the freezer it will cauze the soulderin inside to crack in half then you have the red ring of death

Posted on Nov 01, 2009

I would try it, but im afraid that i will end up with a broken xbox. I think i will just wait until it finally bites it, then pay the 100 smackers.

Posted on Jun 15, 2008

Well i want the 3 red rings be cause my xbox does not have any picture when u turn it on so i would love to see my get it but until then i will keep baking it until it does i still have a little over 2 years left for the red ring warranty

Posted on Jun 01, 2008

It you have and problem besides there rings it costs to fix!! they send u a new one if you have three rings

Posted on May 02, 2008

No, i have the same problem, if your console breaks but doesnt have 3 rings, then its only 1 year, but if it does have 3 rings then its covered by 3 years. well people want it to have the red ring to they get a free replacement since microsoft will send you a free replacement console. Mine has a messed dvd drive and i think i'm just going to send it in for repair.

Posted on Mar 20, 2008

We got the 3 rings of death and called MS and they mailed us a box to return the 360 in, sent us a totally new one in less than a month. The will fix it if it gets the 3 rings. I have now bought a cooling fan ($30.00) to prevent this from happening again. Good luck.

Im trying to get it 2 but it keeps turning off when is overheated

Posted on Jan 22, 2008

IM TRYING TO GET 3 RED LIGHTS ASWELL,AS MY XBOX HAS BEEN DOIN WIERD CRAP AND DNT WANT TO PAY,PUT IT IN A TOWEL LOADS OF TIMES FOR AGES STILL DIDNT WORK

Posted on Jan 13, 2008

Get  a job and pay for the repair. 

Posted on Oct 27, 2007

My box freezes on every game i play, so ive been tryin to get the 3 rings for 4 days now, ive wrapped it in two jackets and only manage to get the 2 lights.

Posted on Oct 08, 2007

I just had the red ring occur, unfortunately, and I did not want the red lights. Just be happy your 360 works. Keep in mind you scammers that Microsoft will check the book code on the xbox to make sure that you actually did get the red rings. If you did not, they will send your unit back to you and I think you are also charged a fee.

Posted on Oct 07, 2007

Yes, the 3 ring light is the only thing covered under the 3 year warrenty, for $99.99 and free shipping both ways microsoft will repair your console, i'm in the process of doing this right now.

Posted on Oct 06, 2007

You dont have to do this cause MICROSOFT extended your Warenty to 3Years... so hope you never get the Ring of dead.

Wrap it in towels

I have an xbox360 I had almost a year I went to switch it onan a red light apear and tells me to go to xbox custemer care E37


If you get the Xbox 360 1 red light message, it means that the problem is either with the DVD drive, or with the hard drive.

Fortunately, the Xbox 360 1 red light message is not something that you should worry about. In order to identify which of the two drives the Xbox 360 1 red light messages is referring to, just look the code number that the screen displays. DVD drive errors are identified with the codes E64, E65 and E66, whereas hard drive errors are identified with codes E67, E69 and E79.

Once you identify which error the Xbox 360 1 red light message is pointing to, fixing it is really easy. The guide available at Fix-xbox360.info will tell you what to do in each case, as well as what to do in case you get any of the other Xbox 360 lights messages. Check it out.

My 360 has 3 rings the rings are red and it wont turn on


Hello,

The three red lights mean that your XBOX360 is experiencing hardware failure. This is caused by overheating of your XBOX. Contact Microsoft and have them fix the problem. They have given free extended warranty for three red light problems. If you have bought your xbox360 within 3 years, you're in luck.. They will fix your console for free...

Call 1-800-4MY-XBOX. All XBox360 consoles have a 3-year limited warranty protecting against the 3 red lights. Since the XBox360 hasn't even been out for three years yet, yours should still be under warranty and will be replaced for free.

3 red lights xbox 360


You could try and lie. Just call and dont tell them its broken then get them to ship you another one.

Its worth a try..

If that doesnt work out try..

Ring of Death


You will get charged for shipping but not repair and when you get your xbox 360 back the 3 year warranty will be in effect.

and if you do try to fix it yourself, or you've voided the warranty ( by already opening it) make sure you DON"T do the " towel Fix " it will only make things worse. you need to do an X Clamp repair. It's simple. I had no experiance whatsoever.with electronics. and I was able to figure it out the first time I tried it. I did it three weeks ago and my X box is quieter than ever and it works fine. so serach on you tube " X Box 360 X clamp fix " and you should see what you need to fix your problem.
