Re: x box 360 fault

Do not wrap your xbox360 up in towels it just fucks it up more even though it seems to work your actually doing serious damage...

All of the mentioned video problem have a greater repair success rate when the GPU is reballed. The same goes for some of the more stubborn game freezes. I've reballed the GPU on 10 console and only one could not fix GPU, it was probably damaged when the customer overheat it doing the xclamp reflow.

Reballing is not cheap but it does work. It's the best solution to the 3RLOD, all though professional reflowing will repair most problem, there still the issue that the solder balls under go numerous temperature cycles making them brittle which will also require a higher temperature to reflow them. Note that the xclamps must be remove to prevent any re-occuring 3RLOD's. That being said any existing system that does not have the 3RLOD should be removing the xclamps as a prevent measure. I'm in the process of putting together a tutorial which allow the removal of the xclamp without drilling or adding bolts to fix it. It use's all of the exsisting hardware with no modification needed to remount CPU and GPU.Please not that this method will only work with systems that have been reflowed or do not have the 3RLOD.

When i turn on x box 360 the green center light appears but the four side lights to not ( no ring). I can open and close the disc on x box but nothing shows up on the tv.

Are your controllers connected to the xbox? that is how you get green light bars around your main green light bar. If you are not refuring to this and nuthing is showing up on your tv screen but you have sound try ajusting/ spinning around the yellow av cord ( Yellow cord is what projects pictures onto screen) . Hope it helped. =]

Just turned on console to play game, game froze and four red lights replaced green. ive cheeked the connections everythings fine but the four red lights what do i do

4 red lights can indicate problems with the a/v or scart cable. check its not loose.

if its not loose it may mean the console is on its way out:

3rrod or e74 are common faults with the 360, it says that its a "general
hardware failure" which could mean anything really. In truth its the lead
free solder that cracks with so much heat and as a result the Xbox 360
fails causing the 3rrod (3 red rings of death).

You will need to get a 3rrod repair kit or get someone to fix it for you,
there are guides available on the internet. I'm in the middle of
producing one right now that I will make available free of charge for all
fixya members.

3 red flashing lights

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 is button is red than you need to replace the battery or check the connections.

The three flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with your Xbox 360 console. If you are experiencing this problem, you can submit a console-repair request online.

Hopefully your system is still under warranty.
