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.

Additional support loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); If the steps in the previous section did not resolve your issue, your console may have to be repaired.

The graphics went crappy then it light up red around the on and off button


You have the red ring of death.

Your xbox isn't getting enough power or the xbox is overheating...

There was a design issue with the older xbox's that caused them to overheat.

If you can return it or exchange it it would recommend doing that.

If not, I used this method to get mine working:

It was a weekend project. My xbox worked for a short time after then died again.

Trying to turn xbox on and getting blinking red ring around power button


If you are having three red lights flashing around the power button with upper right corner not flashing, it means that your Xbox 360 is having a general hardware failure. This is caused by the internal components of the console experiencing a malfunction. You can contact Microsoft Xbox Support for it to be repaired.

When i play xboxlive it will freez then the screen will be green or red then i have to turn my xbox help


If this is what happens each time you use your your console, it might be broken. Does it have any red rings around the console's display? If that's the case, check out these links by Microsoft corresponding to the amount of red rings on your console:
1 red ring
2 red rings
3 red rings
4 red rings

They extended the warranty to three years from the purchase date for the three rings. Give them a call at 1-800-4MYXBOX and see if they can't help solve your problem. Hopefully you're still under warranty. Good Luck!

Night button and incoming calls


The programs involved with you ringing are 81 ( no light or Day Mode ), 84 ( blinking red light or Day 2 Mode ), and 87 ( solid red light or Night Mode ). To change the ringing assignments you need to know the port numbers of the phones you want to ring or not ring. You can do this by pressing DN/ICM dialing # 4 0 2 at each phone, the diaplay will show the physical and logical port numbers. These numbers will be used to turn on or off the aaociated lamps within the above programs. Do you have anyone on staff that understands the system programming ? Let me know ...Mike
