Got it from where?
Can you return it for a replacement?
If not would you be willing to test some new
hardware to get your console working again?

Red light blinking on front of xbox 360


How many red lights flashed? One, or three?

One means that your harddrive isn't seated correctly.
Three means that your console is more or less screwed, and needs to be repaired by Microsoft.

Blinking Red Light


If you have two red lights blinking, that means that the A/V cable is not securely inserted either into the Tv or the console. If you have three red lights, this means you have a hardware failure, and willl need to contact microsoft for free repair. If it is one light, it is just an error and should subside by restarting the 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.

XBox 360 freezing- Not what you think


Your system is headed for the dreaded red ring w/ three red rings. My system started doing the same thing just before this happend. If you have a service plan with it i would suggest returning it and getting a new one.

I tried all the there little tricks as well deleted everything off my harddrive all that good stuff i think it made mine worse. Cuz after all that i turned it back on and bam three red lights and no picture or sound.

360 issues


Two Red Lights

The two left quadrants of the Ring of Light flash red on the front of the Xbox 360 console
This behavior occurs when the internal temperature of the console exceeds the acceptable limits. You may think of this as too hot, overheating, and so on. Make sure the fans are operating and the system has adequate ventilation.

Since you've been inside it's possible that a heatsink or some other part of the cooling system is not working properly or is loose. Check all these!

Good Luck!
