Re: red light on my xbox 360

Turn console of, hold sync button down wich is the small white button next memory card slots, while holding turn on console and wait till it boots. If this does not work go to system blade, select memory, press y on the HD symbol, press xx left bumper right bumper xx, select yes. This will restart your console from scratch though all profiles and saved data will be lost, but it will clear any corupt data.

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.

Game loads okay but controller does not work. controller is brand new. lights work on controller but can not ply any games

If the controller is brand new, you need to Sync it with your XBox 360.

Turn on your 360 using the button on the console.
Turn on the controller by holding the X button in the middle.

With both on, click the SYNC button on the xbox 360.
Then click the SYNC button on the Controller.

The green ring around both should flash a few times, then the upper left quadrant should light up on both meaning it's Sync'd.

If you have 4 lights, check your A/V cord. 3 lights is the Red Ring of Death. Call Microsoft. They have an extended 3 year warranty for this problem. hope this helps AJ

Xbox 360 won't turn on and the kids are upset.

Press the power button on the front of the Xbox to turn it on.

As you're doing this look at the power supply to see if the amber light turns green.

If the light does not turn green, you'll need to get a new power supply.

Have sound no picture and 2 green rings around power button

They are green?!? usualy when people have problems with  the xbox 360 hardware, the lights turn red. This xbox 360 may have a birth defect... Best thing to do is call 1800-4my-xbox. Talk to a representative about sending your xbox in, ONLY if you have not voided the warranty. If so, you will most likely have to buy a new xbox or new motherboard for it.
Also try changing your video settings to tv instead of hd, or hd if it is plugged into a hd tv. You might have toggled the HD switch on the video/audio chords.
