If you are experiencing this problem, you can submit a console-repair request online. However, before you submit your request, first try the following two steps to verify the problem:

  1. When you turn on the console, look at the light on the power supply. The power supply light should illuminate green even if the three lights on the Ring of Light flash red. If the power supply light is not green, please follow the steps in one of the following Microsoft Knowledge Base articles: 906101 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/906101/ ) Troubleshooting your Xbox 360 Power Supply when the light is red 906102 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/906102/ ) Troubleshooting your Xbox 360 Power Supply when the light is orange 906103 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/906103/ ) Troubleshooting your Xbox 360 Power Supply when the light is not illuminated
  2. Turn off the console. Wait 10 seconds, and then turn on the console again to see whether the problem re-occurs.

I went to grab a drink and when I got back the xbox was flashing 2 red lights, and the tv was black. Now I know that it means that the xbox is overheated. But it wont really go away. So now is the...


It's fixable but the fix is to call Microsoft and obtain warranty repair. This would mean you would lose your XBox for awhile as you will have to wait for Microsoft to send you the packaging to return it to them for repair plus the time they have it in order to repair. No real quick fix as any other method would basically void your warranty. Hope this helps.

Cds will not play after Red Ring of Death


If theirs two lights means its overheating and you need to cool it down if its 4 its many things and if the disc drive doesn't read anything and by the sound of it its been played a lot its probably the disc drive could have gotten shot so first of does the disc driver even spin the disc if so then is the laser that probably went to hell and then you'll probably have to replace the disc drive if you do make sure its the same brand as your current one for example if its a hitachi then make sure you replace it with a hitachi disc drive.

Xbox wont turn on after storm


You had a power surge, I recommend you invest in a surge protector power strip. Your 360 may be fried the best thing to do is have it fixed professionally which will cost you. It would probably be cheaper to get a new one unless you have a warranty.

Not reading cds.


Now.. if it's four red rings, check your component cables, unplug them, then plug them back in, if it's only three lights flashing with the top-right quadrant remaining idle, then there is a problem with your hard drive and you have to send it in for repairs.. but as far as the fact that it won't play any games, try to get a disc that will clean the eye of the console something like "Maxell" player cleaner, that usually works.. if that doesn't help.. sorry
