Red Ring of Death: Red Flashing XBOX 360 Lights Explained Common Xbox 360 Red Ring Errors The XBOX has a reported 54.2% failure rate which makes the XBOX 360 gaming consoles' worst "lemon" to date. If you find yourself with the red flashing lights error, --> lg.php?category_id=15&content_type=article&content_type_id=2663399&key_page=682482001924178892&site_id=1&bannerid=11791&campaignid=3153&zoneid=23&loc=1&referer=http%3a%2f%2fwww.associatedcontent.com%2farticle%2f2663399%2fred_ring_of_death_red_flashing_xbox.html%3fcontent_type%3darticle%26content_type_id%3d2663399&cb=8da55f49a0 follow this guide to try and pinpoint the problem with your XBOX 360.

1 Red Ring = Serious Hardware Failure
I f your XBOX 360 has a 1 red flashing light error, you're more than likely in big trouble. The 1 flashing red ring of light can be due to GPU or CPU failure, RAM overheating, a DVD drive error, or some serious problem with your Xbox 360's internal components. The most common 1 flashing red ring lights error is the E74 error. The E74 error is no easy fix for the Xbox 360 and usually has to be repaired by the manufacturer [though some have managed to repair it with the heat gun trick - but be careful]

2 Red Rings = Overheating
Mostly all red flashing lights on the Xbox 360 rings are due to overheating in some way or other, but the 2 red rings singles out overheating as the main issue. When doing the X-Clamp fix the 2 red rings are required to fix the Xbox 360 by overheating the CPU. If you get this Xbox 360 error without doing the X-Clamp fix, you probably just need to let your Xbox 360 cool down for a few hours. Make sure that all vents aren't blocked off and that your Xbox fans are working properly in order to repair this problem.

3 Red Rings = Basic Hardware Failure
The most common error on the Xbox 360 is the 3 red rings - also known as the Red Rings of Death (RRoD). This flashing lights problem is the main cause of Xbox 360's 54.2% failure rate. The 3 red flashing lights can be due to lots of different errors but is mainly due to the X-Clamps in your Xbox 360 and overheating. Fortunately, lots of people were able to fix this issue using the X-Clamp and heat gun fix. Follow this list of error codes to find out the real issue with the 3 red rings because there are quite a few of them.

I have 4 red lights on xbox 360 how do i fix it?


This is known as the 'red ring of death' It is likely that you will need to send in your Xbox to Microsoft for repair. It is possible that you are still covered under warranty. Does the E74 error message appear? See here http://bit.ly/56NTkB

Alternatively Microsoft recommends trying a different set of Audio Video cables.Source http://bit.ly/6eWcLD

Good luck

There is red lights on the xbox and nothing is coming up on screen


You have the RROD (Red Ring of Death)

You can find pleanty of places on Ebay that provide a repair for this. Shouldn't cost you more than about $30 plus postage. Its caused by overheating and is/was very common.

If this is a new xbox then its covered by warrenty.

Xbox 360 won't work at all now


this sounds like your xbox is overheating. If you could try to run it in an area that has a lot of air that flows over the back. you could also plug in a usb fan on the back of the 360. note, if you continue to let the xbox overheat, this could lead to the rings of death which is three rings flashing. If that happens you have no hope. Hope this post helps.

I have to red lights after about ten mins on the xbox 360 and it?


I haven't got an Xbox Myself but I hear that the red lights mean the console has overheated and its a failsafe to prevent damage. It was something ALOT of people got. Also known by gamers as the "RRoD" Or 'Red Ring Of Death". Microsoft released an open letter giving a public warrenty extension to 3 years.... Basically send it back to where you got it under warrenty for the reason of
"General Hardware Failure" and you SHOULD reseave a new one. Sorry if this isn't what you wanted to hear.
Hope it helps!

if its 3 red rings then you need to cal customer support at 1-800-4myxbox to see if your still under warrenty and if you are you get a new xbox. if you arent under warrenty you can open your xbox which will void your warrenty if you have one. and you can repair it yourself which is risky if you do not know alot about system parts
