Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

I tried to fix it on my own I need help ASAP

So today I play playing halo and in the middle of the game my xbox froze and two flash red lights came on. After this I reset my xbox and play some more. I think about one or two games later it did it again.

Yesterday I took my old xbox about and repaired the 3 red rings with the pennys; it works great. once reading some post off of other forums from google I decided to take this new xbox apart and do the penny trink as well. now that I have the xbox back together it is still flashing the two red lights. what should I do? I have already killed the warranty by opening it up. I need someone to truly knows the ins and out of the 360.

Best guess? It over-heated and fried the harddrive. Its toast bro, Microsoft is not going to honor any type of anything on the original X-Box anymore, no way. I have an original X-Box that works perfect, i'll sell it to you for $30 if you'd like =D

likely coincidental timing with a hardware failure likely with the cooling of the unit. if you suspect halo 3 downloaded something you can delete data from the hard drive in dahboard/my xbox/system settings/memory clear out halo 3 data or perhaps wipe/format the whole drive. more than likely the unit is overheating, try moving it to a clearer area, try pointing a fan at it (experiment with placement of the unit and any active cooling you apply) and see if the problem clears. try to clean any dust you can from the unit especially in the ventilation areas.

Strange sounds normally a hi frequency buzzing and freezing ( lockup ) and then 3 reds . The connections under the G.P.U.
are hanging on by a thread . So as the console's P.C.B. expands
and contracts you will be left with a undependable 360 or total
system failure.

Unfortunately most repair don't include replacing the x clamp
hardware after a solid re-flow with a heavy duty G.P.U. bracket
witch would eliminate 90% of the problem with regard to the
G.P.U. breaking away from the board again.

Your console needs a re-flow and a hardware up grade.

There is a product caled a C.C.A. it's a 1/8 steel plate designed to replace the x clamp retainer , for the D.I.Y.

I hope that helped

Xbox 360 is freezing with no red rings and an intercooler?


The freeze ups normally happen before the red lights of doom and they are caused by the GPU and the CPU getting too hot and the soldering snaps off so they lose connection.

If you stop the heat build up you will be fine.

You can do this yourself using a good repair guide or you can send it in and they will fix it for you.

As long as you stop most of the heat getting to the GPU and the CPU you will be fine.

My XBox 360 freezes


Well if these spot are consistent on certain disks time after time it is most likely a scratch, smudge or defect on the disk. check them all for scratches and if they are dirty try to clean them very gently with a soft cloth. This would only really concern your actual console if it occurs during heavy game loading or at the same spot during a load. Try cleaning all your disks and get back to me. GL

No audio/no video, but no red lights


no red lights, no previous error msgs, and video output on the box has just died. playing halo yesterday and mid-game the colours went askew (like a green overlay) with horizontal banding, backing out to the dash solved nothing so after a reboot there was simply no video. troubleshooted the tv and cables and its definately the box.
