I and my friends 360 encountered the same problem, my 360 was just two months old when this occured, power brick was fine, ended up having to send it to germany for repair, took over two months to get it back,now the gameplay is freezing on it, gone for repair again but this time when it comes back i'm trading it against a ps3. Microsoft dont care as long as the money's coming in.

My xbox 360 turns the middle green light on when i start it up , the nothing happens the console wont start up and no display appears on TV and Controller wont sync. with my xbox


  • Your Xbox may have "Red-ringed" a while ago without you knowing. This means it overheated due to lack of ventilation. In order to get it fixed, you will have to send in your Xbox via the support site at xbox.com.
  • Please reply if you have any more questions. Good Luck!

When I turned on my system, it had system error contact xbox customer support. There is a red light flashing on the bottom right, around the power button. I don't know what to do. Please help.


Some of us suddenly when we turn on our Xbox 360 console one day we got one red light flashes on the ROL (Ring of Light) around the Xbox 360 power button, and we got an Error message appearing on the TV screen "System error" also might occur with any error code like E66, E67, E68, E71, E74 or E77, all the same.

When you get any of these messages appearing on your screen with one red light flashing on the ROL of your Xbox 360 console that's an indicator of a hardware problem with the console connection to one of the parts connected to it as the hard drive or cables.

So, first disconnect all power and AV cables from the back of your Xbox 360 console and also unplug the power cord from the wall socket, wait for a minute then reconnect them all back and try to turn on your Xbox 360 console once more.

If that doesn't work, it seems then to be a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so turn off the console again and remove the hard drive then turn on your Xbox 360 console without the hard drive, supposed then to work fine, it might be an intermittent issue and when you reconnect the hard drive your Xbox 360 will work fine all after, or it will just work fine without the hard drive so it will be then definitely a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so call Xbox 360 customer support to exchange the hard drive for you.

The Xbox 360 console might even keep giving you the same error code even after you remove the hard drive so it will then appear to be a fault with your Xbox 360 console not the hard drive & also in a case like this we need to contact Xbox 360 customer support to exchange the console.

3 red lights are flashing around the power button when I switch my xbox on and nothing appears on the screen


I CAN FIX IT! There are links that show you how to repair this issue yourself (but they are not very clear and every thing is very fragile inside the XBOX 360) or you can contact me via reply on here and we can discuss the issue further as I recently repaired my XBOX 360 with the same issues and it works better than when was brand new. It is a heat sync problem that has to be repaired by someone with indepth electronics knowledge. THERE ARE OTHER EASIER ISSUE TO REPAIR I JUST NEED MORE SPECIFICS AS TO PROBLEMS EXPERIENCED. try this link as well http://www.zimbio.com/Xbox+360/articles/332/One+Light+Two+Lights+Three+Lights+More

Press the circle button in front of your xbox 360 and at the same time press the small circle button on your controller ( located near the port where you connect the play and charge kit cable) so they can sync with each other

Hi,

I soldered ana chip & tightened gpu chip. after switching on the set green light appeared for 5/6 sec. changing to 2 red lights. 2nd time only red lights came . Now it's not turning on.


1. Let your Xbox 360 console cool. You may have to wait several hours for your Xbox 360 console to cool enough. Don't turn on your Xbox 360 console when the console is hot. 2. Verify that your Xbox 360 console has enough ventilation and that the fans are operating. For more information about ventilation, see the "More Information" section. 3. If the two lights continue to flash red after you try steps 1 and 2, contact Xbox Customer Support. For more information about how to contact Xbox Customer Support, please visit the Xbox Support (http://www.xbox.com/support/) Web site.
