Xbox Original flashing green and red

Hi there!

This is known as the Christmas lights or FRAG frequent red and green error.

Most of the time the screen is blank and if you were doing work recently such as modchipping this could be caused by solder splashes on the mobo or a shot MCPX chip. Removing the MCPX chip is impossible without very expensive equipment so if you can't find any solder splashes or you weren't soldering on the board junk the whole board.

However, since you said that your xbox is original, I would assume that you haven't done any modifications yet so chances are, the xbox can't find an AV cable connected to this unit. If you do have one, please check if your AV cable is damaged (a frayed or damaged wire). Replace your AV cables and your good to go.

Three red lights on my xbox 360

SYMPTOMS loadTOCNode(1, 'symptoms'); Three lights flash red on the Ring of Light (RoL) on the front of your Xbox 360 console. The upper-right quadrant light is the only light that does not flash red. uparrow.gifBack to the top
CAUSE loadTOCNode(1, 'cause'); The three flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with your Xbox 360 console. uparrow.gifBack to the top
MORE INFORMATION loadTOCNode(1, 'moreinformation'); If you are experiencing this problem, you can submit a console-repair request online. However, before you submit your request, first try the following two steps to verify the problem: 1. When you turn on the console, look at the light on the power supply. The power supply light should illuminate green even if the three lights on the Ring of Light flash red. If the power supply light is not green, please follow the steps in one of the following Microsoft Knowledge Base articles: 906101 ( Troubleshooting your Xbox 360 Power Supply when the light is red 906102 ( Troubleshooting your Xbox 360 Power Supply when the light is orange 906103 ( Troubleshooting your Xbox 360 Power Supply when the light is not illuminated 2. Turn off the console. Wait 10 seconds, and then turn on the console again to see whether the problem re-occurs.If your console continues to display three flashing red lights, your console may have to be repaired. If none of these help, pease contact Xbox support at to talk to a live agent.

Xbox 360 has jamed up completely!

Check the cable if the switch is on TV or HDTV, depending on your TV that could the problem, also if that is not the problem then it could more serious like the GPU is damage or main board or the CPU. Just comment if does not work for you.

4 red lights flashing

Hi there,

The TV screen or monitor remains black when you start an Xbox 360 console.

This behavior may occur with or without a game disc in the disc tray. The console appears to be on because the green power light illuminates and the fan continues to operate. However, the screen remains black.

Flashing red and green light in xbox

You have a major failure on the motherboard. If it was your hard drive the system will boot up, but freeze on the main screen and you will hear clicking coming out of the hard drive. Red and Green flashing lights means there is a problem on the motherboard. Sometimes you can fix the problem by reflashing the Bios on the main motherboard.
