Its Overheating. Is it covered under the ms waranty? If not we can try a reflow on the system if you didnt already melt the solder together under the chips. I do not recommend to anyone to try the towel trick. It can permanently damage the system. Here is our website. We are a listed repair service on this site.

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.

What is wrong with my xbox it says error 65?


Error 65: DVD Drive Error.... DVD Timeout, Wrong firmware, dvd is without f/w chip, etc. This can also be caused by the tray not being fully closed on boot.

Flashing red:
1.the av cable cannot be detected
Make sure that the AV cable is correctly connected to the Xbox 360 console.
Disconnect the AV cable from the Xbox 360 console, and then reconnect the AV cable to the Xbox 360 console.
If the four flashing red lights continue to flash, try wiping the metal area of the AV pack with a dry cloth. The metal area is the end that plugs into the console. Wipe the metal area thoroughly, and then try the AV Pack again.
If the AV cable is correctly connected but the four red lights are still flashing, substitute a different AV cable if you have one available.
2.general hardware failure
Try restarting the console.
If restarting the console does not resolve the behavior, follow these steps:
Turn the console off.
Unplug all the power and AV cables from the console.
Unplug the power cord from the wall socket.
Firmly reconnect all the cables.
Turn on the console.
If these steps do not resolve the behavior, turn the console off, remove the hard drive, and then turn on the console. If the 3x Red LED error light is no longer displayed, turn the console off, re-attach the hard drive, and then turn on the console.
Also examine the lights on the power supply. When you turn on the console, the power supply light should illuminate green even if the three lights on the RoL flash red.

The specific type of hardware failure can be determined by a "hidden" error code
Turn the xbox 360 on, and wait till the 3 red lights are flashing.
Press and hold the sync up button (the small white one), while holding that button press the eject button.
The LEDs will now blink the first number in the code (as described below).
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the second number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the third number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the forth number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will go back to the 3 red flashing lights.
You should be able to determine the difference between the 3 flashing lights and the error code lights by the rate in which they flash.

Here is how you interpret the LEDs to get the code number:
All four lights flashing - 0
One light flashing - 1
Two Lights flashing - 2
Three lights flashing - 3

0001 power supply problem
0002 Network Interface problem
0003 Power problem could be the PSU could be the GPU/CPU, somehow the console isn't getting clean power from the power supply.
0010 over heating
0011 over heating - If you are receiving this error after disassembling your console make sure to all 8 of the heatsync screws are tightened securely to the board/heatsink holes.
0012 over heating
0013 over heating
0021 DVD Drive Time out - Can be caused by problems with a firmware flash. This is also speculated to sometime be caused by a problem with the southbridge chipset on the motherboard.
0022 GPU Error / GPU Overheating

I cant get the xbox to work from the controllers, when i press the "x" button on the controller it just keeps flashing and doesn't allow me to link up with the console


The "x" button is the xbox guide button that is in the center of your controller.
1. First, turn on your console by pressing the power button on the console itself.
2. Next, press the xbox guide button that's on your controller. (The button that lights up and flashes when you press it).
3. On the front of your console, just to the right of the memory card B slot & just below the right corner of the DVD tray, there is a small, round connect button.
4. With the both the console & the controller on,(lights flashing) press and release the connect button on the console first.
5. Then on the controller, press the connect button (green arrow, circled in red) that's between the Left Bumper button (LB) and the charging port (blue arrow).
8040341.jpg
6.The lights on the controller and on the console should continue to go in a circle and stop.
7. The upper left quadrant is controller # 1, the upper right quadrant is controller # 2, bottom left is # 3, and the bottom right is # 4.
8. Once the controller connects the the console,you're all set. Then the next time you go to turn it on, just press the xbox guide button on the controller and it will turn the power on to the console for you.
9. If you ever take your controller and use it on another 360 console, you have to go through the same connection steps as you just did. And then again, when you get back to your console

Hope this helps! Happy gaming!

Wont load,blinking red light on the power button


if it is the top left, bottom left and bottom right lights blinking red, this means that there is a hardware failure in your xbox 360 and there is no current way to fix this. i recommend that you send it in to xbox to see if they can do anything, and if not, they will possibly send you a new xbox 360.

2 red lights w/green light


The problem is the black screws on the bottom of the frame that screw into the X-Clamps. Most of the time, you usually don't have to even put the black screws back in. However their can be exscruciating headache inducing problems with fine tuning the black screws. If you do end up needing to put the black screws back in, I suggest to start with one @ a time, starting with the bottom right screw. ( thats with the 360 standing vertical with the dvd drive faced toward U.) The tightness can range from almost as tight as you can possibly get to soooo!!!!!! loose u can't possibly imagine how its doing anything at all. The best way to do this is, with the 360 hooked up, (and the case left off) take the small white plastic frame off that covers the power button, start with the screw loosened and then proceed to turn slightly like an 1/8th of a turn, then power on and then turn off if 2 red or 3 red ring proceeds and then repeat. You shouldn't have to put all the black screws back in, mine only has bottom right bottom left and top left, and are incredibly loose. My friend however has bottom right only and is tightened only about 1/2 way.

Three red lights


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. CAUSE: The three flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with your Xbox 360 console. MORE INFORMATION: 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.If your console continues to display three flashing red lights, your console may have to be repaired. If none of these help, pease contact Xbox support at http://xbox.agent.asahost.com/ to talk to a live agent.
