When someone say that his/her Xbox is having 3 red lights problem, It means it needs to be repaired. If you are using Cooler than it is not a cure but a prevention. You could have used cooler before acutally having the problem just to prevent your Xbox. But now you will have to either get it repaired from Microsoft (in case your Xbox's warranty is not expired, but one thing to note is that you will have to wait for at least 3-4 weeks to get back your Xbox) or you can Fix your Xbox's 3 Flashing red lights problem yourself with the help of DIY Video guide available on Internet. You can fix yourself without any technical knowledge.

The title refers to the Red Ring of Death. If you do have 2 or 3 rings, you will need to send it in to microsoft. If you are concerned about virus over live then, It is possible, but it is very complex. There is a very special thing called a bot net, this however will not give you a virus through your xbox, but it will give you a virus through your Ip address onto your computer. Very scary what the world can do, but don't be alarmed, these cases are very rare, and are usually spotted and busted.

if you have one, two, or three rings, give the xbox a lot of time to cool down. If you have four, your xbox is fried.

Red rings of death


  1. I had this problem with my Xbox 360 with the three red rings. I did a Google search and found alot of the fix it yourself websites. I tried it and not only was I not able to fix it I made the problem worse. So then I started looking for repair places. I came across www.videogame911.com. I filled out their online order form and sent my XBOX repair off. Within days of shipping it out I had my system back. They were very quick and affordable and they provide a warranty. I've had my system back for over 3 months now. I play it for at least 3 hours a night and I have had absolutely no problems with it. I would highly recommend them if your looking to have your video gamesystem repaired.

I have a partial red ring of death, but it's not all 4 lights. It's only 1-3 and it flashes when I turn the system on . Any advice?


Red ring of death is three lights, four is when you don't have the A\V cords plugged in, I believe, you can look on the Xbox website. Just try makiong sure all your cords are plugged correctly, sometimes it comes up three lights when the power cord is incorrectly plugged.

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

Three red rings


Go online to XBOX.COM and register your Xbox (will need your serial number). Microsoft will then mail you a mailing box with instructions (at their cost). It will be shipped to McAllen TX (mine was and was delivered to them today).

But next unit will not be Microsoft related.

3 red rings


yes over heating best to go microsoft care point or support online at x-box site and see what your nearest service point. -my self ,i use to fix two fans one to increase the cooling system and one to brought out the heat, all most the solution care about increase the cooling factor, but they always ignoring that the heat should be go out. by this you can play most of games and operate your x-box as long you want . -some of x-box board components might affected by been heated and cooling in normal operating so this case you should reflow the GPU and CPU. Nothing safe than use jovy RE-7500 to make this process .
