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.

XBox 360 does not work. Red ring around the start button.


You have what is called the "red ring of death." This was a huge problem with the 360 when they first came out. Essentially, your box overheated and died. If it is still under warranty, you can call support and tell them what the problem is and they will most likely replace it. Otherwise, it's time for a new box. Sorry

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


This problem is often called the Red ring of Death.

It's actually very common and is caused by a hardware malfunction that causes the system to overheat.

There are 2 ways to fix this problem: 1) Send it to Microsoft (if your warranty is expired it will cost $110)

2) Fix it at home by taking the system apart and repairing the malfunction. This can be daunting, but is actually easier than it sounds. I recommend having a look at these 2 sites:

Game freezes and dots appear on screen


I hate to break it to you, but you may have gotten the Red Ring Of Death. It happens when playing a game and it is transmitted through online play through Xbox Live. 3 red lights will appear around the power button when your console has become infected. The Red Ring of Death may have infected your console causing it to shut down. Most Xbox 360 consoles won't turn back on but some do turn back on but they just won't play games, they will freeze up and have the dotted lines and make the buzzing noise. I'm sorry, but I think you may need a new console. You're in luck if it's still under warranty. Hope this helps!!!!

3 red lights


i am sorry clarky7781, but you have the infamous "red ring of death", sadly, the only way to fix this problem is to contact microsoft and tell them that you have the red ring of death and they will send you a box that you must send back to the company containing only your xbox console

Won't load game keeps blinkng red light


If the XBOX 360 is blinking the color RED in three of the four quarter of the ring around the power button, you will have to contact Microsoft for a replacement. This is what is known as "Red Ring of Death." You can find plenty of information on it if you Google it.

Click HERE for a video of the Red Ring of Death.

Click HERE for Microsoft's support system for the XBOX 360 and get in touch with Microsoft to get your replacement started.

It's the ONLY way.

Good luck.
