    When I turn on the 360 I get solid red lights in the 1,3, and 4 positions. This happens with or without the hard drive installed. All connections have been checked and are secure.

In regards to the red ring issue on your XBOX 360 I would actually send it in to Microsoft if you are still in warranty.

The reason for this is if the CPU got damaged from over heating the DIY steps will not help you. I actually just got my 360 back from RMA and it took just over a week for the whole process. Granted I like close the the RMA center but if you are on the coasts I see a 2 week turn around at the most. Not 4-6 weeks.

Hope this helps.

Let me know if you have any more problems and/or questions.

My 360 has 3 rings the rings are red and it wont turn on


Hello,

The three red lights mean that your XBOX360 is experiencing hardware failure. This is caused by overheating of your XBOX. Contact Microsoft and have them fix the problem. They have given free extended warranty for three red light problems. If you have bought your xbox360 within 3 years, you're in luck.. They will fix your console for free...

One flashing red light on xbox360 ( not red ring)


The specific type of hardware failure can be determined by a "hidden" error code
Turn the xbox 360 on, and wait till the 3 red lights are flashing.
Press and hold the sync up button (the small white one), while holding that button press the eject button.
The LEDs will now blink the first number in the code (as described below).
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the second number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the third number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the forth number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will go back to the 3 red flashing lights.
You should be able to determine the difference between the 3 flashing lights and the error code lights by the rate in which they flash.
Here is how you interpret the LEDs to get the code number:
All four lights flashing - 0
One light flashing - 1
Two Lights flashing - 2
Three lights flashing - 3

Once you get this code, go to: http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=484726
To get the reason for the code.

Xbox360 has 3 red lights


Its when the solder overheats and disconnects a wire in the xbox. If you have bought it within the last year, you can return or swap for new wherever you bought it. If not you will most likely have to send it off to xbox repairs.

YOu are having problems with the three red lights right (red ring of death)? How old is your xbox?

Ps3 powering problem


this is similar to the red blinking lights of death on the xbox360...it seems your cell processor has overheated resulting in a cold solder joints or worse bridged solder involving the BGA array...The Ps3/WII/XBOX360 all use lead-free solder which tends to to weaken and crack.
I have had some success in fixing these albeit limited. sony charges 150 plus state tax and sends you a refurbished unit.

Hello,

I think it is the XBOX360 red screen of death, as told on wikipedia, the lights are in different positions but the lights are red. Given picture below:

4 FLASHING RED LIGHTS


4 red lights is not necessarily a hardware failure or ring of death. The cause is usually from AV cable not being detected or not connected correctly. The Eraser trick is good for Error 0102 make sure which error number you have! Suggested Solutions: 1. Try to connect and disconnect the cable and see if it makes any changes on the red lights status. Note that not inserting the AV fully will cause the 4 lights error to appear. 2. Make sure the AV Cable and the connector in the Xbox console are proper and there is nothing banded or twisted. 3. Try to connect it to a different monitor maybe this is where the problem is. 4. Find the metal area where it plugs into the console this is called the AV Pack metal area. Use a dry, lint-free cloth and wipe it. Then try to plug the AV again. * If you still can't make it to work and you have your warranty just send it in. If you don't have warranty I suggest trying the live chat support on Fixya!
