Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

No Red Rings, can't turn on

Ok, so I have an xbox and when I turn it on there are no rrod, it just shows the regular green light for a half a second then immediately turns off. it barely spins the fans, and that's all. the power supply is yellowish orange like it's supposed to be and when I try to turn it on, it flickers green, until the box kicks out again. this is a modded box, the x clamp fix was done and also there was a 5v fan attached to the underside of the mobo, near the rf module, or the power pad thingy. I think I might have short circuited something, but I'm not positive. any comments? thoughts?

    I've tried a different power brick. i've tried the 3 pronged one and the 2 pronged one. I've plugged it straight into the wall as well. and still all the same results. I'm pretty sure there's nothing wrong in terms of the power supply or else the light on the brick would be red or something like that.

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 to fill out a repair request, otherwise look for someone in your area that has experience repairing the Red Ring of Death.

Three red lights on the ring of light is an indication of a hardware failure

1. Turn off the xbox 360, disconnect the cables wait for 20 seconds reconnect the cables and turn it back on.

2. Check the light on the power supply ( The big brick that goes to your wall )
If the light is green that means the power supply is OK
If the light is Red that means the power supply needs to be replaced

3. If above steps doesn't work, you need to contact xbox customer support to get your xbox repaired
and shipping and handling will be covered.
