I think so. From what I have seen/heard, it works with the audio part, I am not sure about the video part, but be cautious, the voulume could get real loud.

Xbox 360 red ring of death


Not a simple question.

It depends on the 360 to be honest.

Whatever you do try do not do the "towel trick"
The red ring of death is usually an overheating problem and the towel trick will cause the 360 to overheat.
Look on youtube for "the penny trick/fix"

I'd recommend you send your xbox to a repair center though. In most cases they will repair it for free.

I tried the towel trick and the penny heat sink. The console worked for 3 weeks then the red ring of death showed up again. Nothing I've tried will work. Any suggestions/


The towel trick and penny heat sink is a temporary fix for the Xbox 360. The red rings of death is a general hardware failure which means it needs a permanent fix. If your console is out of warranty it will be $99 through Microsoft, you check your local service centers for the system to be fixed and it might be cheaper.

Xbox 360 has 1 ring of death on it and I cant get it off.


ONLY USE THESE TRICKS IF YOUR WARRANTY HAS RUN OUT!

Use two of these three steps (Use the third step at your own RISK)

1.The penny trick works for three red lights thn you might get a 074 error (video below)
Penny Trick:

2.Use after the Penny trick (Also for other errors such as 074 and maybe other errors)
The towel trick:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31tvXu34T8Q

You can keep using step two FOR 074 ERROR or use the step below at your own RISK!

3.Here is another way to fix 074 if it reoccures
(Never tried because of the x clamps i'm to scared of wrecking the 360 motherboard but i bet it fixes the 360 074 by taking the heatsink off and putting it back on)

Black screen with white bots on screen.(Xbox 360)


It's probably just the red ring, you can fix that with almost ALL 3 red ring fixes.

Cause there both CAUSED by the motherboard shifting.

Google PENNY TRICK, it doenst always work UNTIL the box is completely screwed back in.

Xclamp trick. Google taht too, it costs money for the kit, but it works like everytime and there are TONS of tutorials online for it.
