Usually when the console shows 2 red lights it means that it is overheating. let it cool down for a while first. make sure it is well ventilated. as well as the power supply

Sorry to say, It has to be sent back

The problem with Xboxes are (the First Versions) is that they get too hot and the Solder under the chips rise causes the chips to be affected. As of right now, there is "no fix" for these. Alot of these xboxes are being sent right back to Microsoft to replace.


You might have to go through that back and forth process to receive a new one. but, even those are said to be refurbs.... of the first versions



good luck

One red light on right hand side of consol what does this mean


this is a warning sign that you could get the 3 red lights of death on your console, the first thing you need to do is contact xbox on 0800 469 9269 and tell them you have 3 red lights on your console and they will book your console in for a free repair even if your console warranty has expired or not, 9 times out of 10 xbox will send you out a brand new console as it is easier than fixing it, if you enjoy playing on xbox live then when you receive your console new or old xbox will send you a free 1 month xbox live subscription code for the time you have spent with out your console.
i hope this helps you

XBOX 3 REDLIGHTS


Hi, I fix xbox 360's, the three red lights is usually caused by a bad connection between the gpu solder balls, if you still have the microsoft security sticker beneath the faceplate then microsoft will repair it up to three years since you bought the console. There is a lot of false information on the net about "The X-clamp fix", it will get your console working again, but it is only a temporary fix, results vary between 3 months to a year if you are very lucky, I have came up with another method which has been successful on a test unit for about 6 months now! Just remember, all the x-clamp kits that you can buy off ebay are temporary fixes, none of them are permanent as they claim!

1 red light flashing


1 red light indicates that there is general hardware related problem with the console, 2 red lights indicate the overheating of the console, 3 red lights indicate the red ring of death and 4 red lights indicate that you need to tighten your AV console wire. If you get any of the problems and your system is under warranty, you can ship your console directly to Microsoft and you will get back your Xbox 360 red ring fixed by the manufacturer, however it might take more than a month and you will also have to bear the additional shipping charges. If your warranty period is over, you will have to pay additional amount of $140, if you choose to send the Xbox 360 to Microsoft for red ring fix. Further you will have to also bear the shipping amount and wait for at least a month for getting your console back. However, you can avoid this and can repair your console your own. There are many good guides available at Internet and you can go through any one of them and can fix Xbox 360 red ring problems your own.

Xbox 360 two red lights in left quadrant


well dust can accumilates in the wierdest ways.

try blowing the air holes with a compress air cans. or take it apart and clean the inside. dust can build up with 3 months of playing depends on your area if you have pets or smokers in the area, dust comes from all sorts.
so try keeping your XBOX360 cooled as possible and keep it cleaned.

i use a air compressor when cleaning mine i try to clean it like every 3-4 months depending on how much I play it.


So keep it clean also red lights could mean no video device connected too, so check your video / audio connector.

Xbox 360 red light


Repair Xbox 360 - 3 Red Lights 3-red-lights.jpg
James at joystiq fixed his own 360 that was flashing three red lights, which indicates an internal error.
If you have this problem try to fix it yourself before sending the unit in.
1) Remove your hard drive and/or memory units.
2) Run “Initial Setup” under the system blade.
3) Decline inserting HDD or memory unit when prompted.
4) Sync your controller and pop in a game.
It might save your xbox 360 a repair return.
