Turn console off and leave for at least 5 hours. Make sure no devices are plugged into console when you turn it on after cooling time. When you do turn it on, however, make sure it is at least 3 metres away from any heat sources and electrical devices. YOU MAY NOT NEED TO REPLACE ANYTHING SO DONT

I assume you mean wirelss controllers, if so, on the front of the console there is a round connect button marked '>>',( to the right of the memory port 2) press and release this and there is a little pairing connect button on the controller at the front press this, then the lights should then circulate and stop in either the upper left or upper right segments. you can view here if you prefer illustrations

I hadn't had my xbox 360 on all day and when I turned it on it had 3 red rings. No picture is showing up on the TV and the light on the power supply is green.

That is the red ring of death...if your XBOX is less than 3 years old call Microsoft tech support and they will arrange for a replacement unit.

There are links that show you how to repair this issue yourself (but they are not very clear and every thing is very fragile inside the XBOX 360) or you can contact me via email at and we can discuss the issue further as I recently repaired my XBOX 360 with the same issues and it works better than when was brand new. It takes and electronics engineer to repair properly.

Xbox 360 wont load to main menu. No red ring.

This is the problem with the GPU, Just fixed on the other day with the same problem. best way to fix it is with a heatgun and an xbox360 repair kit. The same kit for fixing the 3 red lights and E74 problems.

You can get the kit here.

I keep getting three red rings in the part where it shows how may controllers are playing and i can't get any of my games to play or my controllers to work

Three lights flash red on the Ring of Light (RoL) on the front of your Xbox 360 console. The upper-right quadrant light is the only light that does not flash red. The three flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with your Xbox 360 console.

You can try one or two things.

1. Turn on your xbox and check to see if the power supply light is green. If it is green there is a problem with the system. If it is red it means you should check your connections and restart the xbox.

2. These rings have a tendency of meaning that there is a problem with the system itself. Most companies sell extra insurance to cover this "ROL" Ring of life. You can contact Microsoft by calling them. The number is usually listed on the back of the video game booklets.

I wish you the best and I hope this resolved your problem

Happy Gaming

Xbox 360 problem

If you can still HEAR sound, but can't see. Check your Audio Video Cable.

It's the colorful one (red, white, yellow) (red, blue green, white, red)

Make sure the connections are secure into the back of the TV as well as the connection to the back of the Xbox 360.

Wireless controller

I dont know if you have been able to figure out what the proble was with your 360, but the exact SAME thing happened to me. The 360 seems to be working fine, game loads, and both the consoles and the controllers rings lit up green, but then the controllers ring just keeps flashing and the console won't recognize it. I 've tried other controllers and nothing worked and obviously I tried to synch it with the console time and time again. PLEASE HELP!!!

The power button on my 360 puts the one green light on the right instead of the left

I have a very similar problem I had a few days ago. But what I did was I shut down the Xbox 360 console completely. Then I unplugged the power cord from the Xbox 360 console and the wall outlet, and then I disconnected the batteries from the wireless controller. let it sit for about 5 min. Then plugged everything back in, and finally I hit the the wireless connecting buttons on both the Xbox 360 console itself, and the wireless controller(s).

And from then on, I have had no problems, what so ever since I did that (above).
