    Ahhh...doesn't turn on at all, I see.

    Well you're definitely out of warranty so if I were you and I didn't fix computers I'd take it to a local repair shop or have someone from Craigslist check it out.

    Make sure you find a place that provides FREE Diagnostics. It should take only about 5 minutes to diagnose the problem. Ask to watch it usually keeps them a bit more honest.

    Best of luck!

These steps are taken from the support site as always, it's the first website where you should look.

Solution 1: Disconnect and reconnect cables
Here's how:
  1. Turn off your Xbox 360 console.
  2. Unplug all memory units, controllers, and accessories from your console.
  3. Unplug everything from the back of your console, including power and video cables.

    Don't remove the hard drive.
  1. Reconnect your console's power supply.
  2. Reconnect each accessory one at a time, starting with a controller.
  3. After you've reconnected every accessory, turn the console on.
Solution 2: Remove the hard drive
To see whether the problem involves the original Xbox 360 Hard Drive, temporarily remove the hard disk drive. Here's how.
Note Not all Xbox 360 consoles include a hard drive. If your Xbox 360 console doesn't have a hard drive, to go Solution 3.

Solution 4: Request a repair
If the previous steps don't resolve the single flashing red light issue, there are no additional troubleshooting steps. Your original Xbox 360 console must be repaired at our service center. Start the repair process online.

The green start light is flashing and won't start again when pressed.


Cycle thru the wash settings. Do all the lights work for the different settings?

Timer light on fujitsu heat pump flashes not heating


the light flashing indicates there is a problem. you can try reseting the system by turning the power supply off and back on again 30 sec later, if the same thing happens you need to count the number of light flashers and that relates to a fault code

I have a SONY KF-WE50 rear projection tv, a few weeks ago it started to turn the pic and sound off while the green light was flashing around 30 times. After the light finished flashing both the picture and...


the green is the reboot process and is normal.
the red light is an error code indicator.
count the blinks of the red light...it cant be 30 times (I think)
it will blink a sequence, pause, then do it again for a total of three times.
count carefully, it gives you three chances to catch the number it is blinking.

Does not cook - time counts down extremely fast


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.
and please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you.

Xbox 3 red lights problem help please


3 red lights normally means there is a general hardware failure.

Are the lights flashing?

Turn off the xbox and...

Try unplugging everything from your xbox, plug it back in and turn it on.

if that doesnt work, when your xbox is turned off, take the hard drive out and restart your xbox. If it works with the hard drive, try restarting it again after putting the hard drive back in.

3 Red Lights Flashing - is a general hardware failure
  • Unplug everything and let it sit for 20 min. Re-connect and try re-starting
  • If these steps do not resolve the behavior, turn the console off, remove the hard drive, and then turn on the console. If the 3x Red LED error light is no longer displayed, turn the console off, re-attach the hard drive, and then turn on the console.
  • Check the lights on the power supply. When you turn on the console, the power supply light should illuminate green even if the three lights on the console flash red.
