Wierd... Never heard of it before. Try to take the batteries out of the controller and wait about 30 seconds. Then switch your xbox on normally and resync it with your controller (hold the little button next or under, depending on stance, of the memory slots and than hold the small button on top of the controller untill it connects to your xbox)

Good luck!

My xbox light turned red and i dont know what to do cause it wont let me play


Red Ring of Death.

Try restarting your 360 a couple times using various methods (eg. unplugging wires, turning it off manually/with controller, etc.).
If that doesn't work, you'll have to send it to get fixed. If your 360 still has a warranty it's free, otherwise it's about $100.

Xbox 360 power supply light turns yellow when xbox 360 is off (usually i think) and turns green when on, I've had one red ring on my xbox to,twice


make sure your xbox is in an open area where it can breathe, otherwise the one red ring means there is a hardware failure, if it is under warrenty send it back into xbox, otherwise there are some diy fixes on youtube

Three red lights flashing


If this is your Xbox 360 console you are referring to, then you need a repair. If you are under your 3 year warranty from MS go to www.xbox.com/support to fill out a repair request, otherwise look for someone in your area that has experience repairing the Red Ring of Death.

I finished fixing the red rings and my 360 was working fine but it doesnt turnm on now. WHY?


Is your power supply getting power (ie. is the light yellow). When you hit the switch on the (XBOX), does the power supply turn light turn green? If not, the XBOX is not recognizing the switch or the power supply is bad.. If it is, then you may want to recheck your red rings fix. The parts you've installed may have come loose and shorted something out.

If your trying to turn the XBOX on with a joystick, you may have to resync them. Try using the XBOX switch on. If it turns on with the XBOX switch and not the joysticks, it could be the wireless component in the XBOX or the joystick batteries.


**NOTE: I am saying XBOX but I mean the 360.

Wireless 360 Network Adapter won't turn red


This can actually happen quit a bit but it sounds to me like the usb jack may be dieing or not producing enough power. This can be caused if for instance you use wired controllers. Have you tried using the front usb ports.

Microsoft wireless adaptor


sounds like the wireless adapter may have encounteded a glitch of some kind. I would suggest trying a brand new one, and see if it then will work. Otherwise, you might have to send your console in for repairs by Microsoft, since you said you had the ring of death, It could be that the hardware failure which displays this has disabled all hardware devices. i.e. wireless, ethernet, USB ports . . . .

Xbox controller will not sync with console


Disconnect the power cord from the 360 for a couple of minutes.

Plug it back in and turn it on. Power turn on a different controller than the one that isn't working and sync it with the 360.

Now turn on the original controller that wouldn't sync, and use the sync buttons on the 360 and controller. It should sync up and go to player 2 slot.

Everything should be good now, that's how I fixed mine.
