My xbox 360 wont turn on please help i jus got mw2 and my xbox wont read new games like brand new

When you try to turn it on does the light flash red? if so then refer to one of our other members who will surely tell you how to fix. but if it doesnt turn on, then un-plug it all and leave it for a while, then try again.

My xbox360 has e 68 with one red light flashing

Sorry to hear that . Microsoft will not cover that error :(((
of course it all related to the same problem , The G.P.U.
under soldering itself from the main P.C. board.

You have several options .

1 send it to Microsoft for repair .(cost 99.00) takes 5-10 days
2 send it to a repair shop for repair (cost 80.00) take 3-5 days
3 Fix it your self . There are many how to books and video.
I recommend non of them .

Hear is what you do if you chose option #3

Take the unit apart ,there are many videos on how to do this.
leave the 8 black screws in and remove all the silvers ones.
remove the lid . remove the C.D rom but leave it plugged in.
remove the white fan shroud . Then remove the fan ,leave it
plug in put the C.D. rom back in . and place half the fan over
the big heat sink and hold it there .

Turn on the unit .
after 5 min the fan should be at full speed
after 7-9 min you should get two reds (unplug it)
wait 15-20 ,then reassemble . this should get a little
more mileage out of your system .

Be careful not to push or pull on the heat sinks
in order to avoid breaking the seal .

If you have any questions just comment and ill respond

2 red lights

Your xbox is overheating.
1. Let your Xbox 360 console cool. You may have to wait several hours for your console to cool enough. Don't turn on your Xbox 360 console when the console is hot. 2. Verify that your Xbox 360 console has enough ventilation and that the fans are operating. 3. If the two lights continue to flash after trying the above steps, you'll need to contact Xbox Customer Support.

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.

Xbox shuts down during a game 3 red lights

hey johnny you will have to call microsoft and get it fixed there is one thing you can do in the mean time to temp fix it.

what you need is two towels just normal bathroom towels take everything out of your xbox e.g harddrive,controlers etc only things to leave in is the av cable and power supply as you wanna turn on the xbox lie a towel flat on the ground and lie the xbox on its side ontop of the towel turn the xbox on, you will see the error message and the red lights flash. wrap the towel around your xbox covering the air vents and then the 2nd towel put over the top. leave it on in the towels for about 20 mins then after that take all the towels off turn off the console and leave to cool down for 15 mins. turn the xbox on and it should restart again fine but only lasts for a couple of days then you have to do it again. wont fix it but will let u play while microsoft gets it.

hope this helps please rate me

regards grant

3 flashing red light on console

uh well u got the three red lights of death it sounds like... and i also had those. while im no expert on this stuff, iv seen that u can put ur 360 sideways on a table, wrap it in towels(and i mean like 2 towels, wrap it up completely) and turn it on and leave it on for about 10-15 mins. just make sure a fire doesnt start in those 10-15 mins(believe me you dont want to call the fire company and tell them u started a fire wrapping ur game console in towels), ok then after u done waitin turn it off, unwrap it, and let it sit until it is cool, and try turning it on. it might work, its supposed to work because those three red lights mean that theres a malfunction in the 360 itself, such as wires or sumthin, and extreme heat may melt the wires and fix the problem, how i dont know but theres so many stories of ppl who have pulled it off
