Disconnect the power and reconnect.

Look at the power brick, is there a red light on? If so unplug and replug, if that dont work and the red light on it is still lit then the problem would be the power brick. The light should be yellow when the unit is off and green when it is on.

Also look where you connect the controllers at. Are the pins bent and the black spacer missing in the usb ports. If so then they are shorting out and will not allow the unit to come back on till they are not touching anything.

Also is there a cooling unit attached to the back of the unit. If so unhook the cooling unit and plug the cord directly to the unit and try.

Do not move the xbox 360 while the disc is inside and playing. Try not to stand the unit vertically just do it horizontally.

One red light on xbox 360


One red light means either the hard drive isn't connected properly, or the video cable isn't connected properly, or is damaged.
Check the hard drive, and the video connection to ensure they're in there tight.

My grandsons xbox 360 wont play anything because when he switches it on after a few seconds the light changes colour and starts flashing can you help pease


oh okay, tell him to check the connection of his a/v cable. possible causes could be that the cord isn't securely connected to the system at the back.

also, be sure that the switch on the end of the cable is set to either a/v or component (high definition R G B) depending on which one he's using! i hope that helps =)
