I have the new black xbox360. Its new, so it cant be broken. I got it on christmas. I can hear it, but I cant see it. I dont want to send it in, I want online help.

This is a common failure with the XBox... new or not it's failed.
If the unit is still under warrenty by all means get it fixed or replaced by M$.
There are sites that claim it can be fixed by overheat and causing the RROD (red ring of Death) NOT recommended! The problem is poor solder connections on the graphics chip and if you heat the unit up enough to reflow the solder who knows what other damage can be done.

The second player light turned red and the screen says wierd things what do i do? the "weird things" it says and maybe some of us may be able to help you but i'm guessing it's either just that its like a disease, so like the second remote was playing on an xbox360 that got the red ring of death showing that second player was also red so it became red and whenever it connect it has its disease i would just recommend buying another remote control and stop playing with that one and was it while you were playing? If so I don't know it might have overheated.

I got the red ring of death on me xbox360 and i what to fix it what to do???

If it is under warranty, send it to Microsoft. I would recommending otherwise buying the new Xbox Slim Arcade system which is only $200 and a better investment since all parts will be new and this one has solved the heating issue by turning off if it gets too hot. Basically you have overheated the xbox and a board and/or parts have warped and shorted out or broke. The following may be the most reliable method if you open it up and find the same problem.

Let me know how this works out for you.

Trying to turn xbox on and getting blinking red ring around power button

This problem is often called the Red ring of Death.

It's actually very common and is caused by a hardware malfunction that causes the system to overheat.

There are 2 ways to fix this problem: 1) Send it to Microsoft (if your warranty is expired it will cost $110)

2) Fix it at home by taking the system apart and repairing the malfunction. This can be daunting, but is actually easier than it sounds. I recommend having a look at these 2 sites:

My xbox360 is frezzing up after about 1 hour into the game,what can i do to fix the problem ? Ty

If your system if freezing like that it means its about to get the red ring of death, eventually it will freeze and when you restart it you'll get the lights.
If your warranty is intact, the number is 1-800-4MYXBOX.

Video game choic

I personal like the wii 3d movement and with it being cheaper, it is a very nice system

the 360 is expensive but a lot of fun online, you just have to try them both before buying either

hope this helps
