3 rings would be the ol' Red Ring of Death, while 4 rings means the AV cables are not detected.

    Yeah 3 rings signifies a hardware failure. Unfortunately you will have to send it to Microsoft and have them repair it, or get a new one. :/
    Microsoft kept my friends for 2 months while repairing it but I don't know how long it is taking these days.

My xbox will not read the Kintect Adventures game, it tells me to clean the disk or restart console. I've cleaned the disk but it still does not work, how can I restart my console?


To restart either hold xbox guide button (big button with a green x on it) until "turn off console" box comes up and select turn off console, or press the power button on your xbox. There might be a chance that your game disc is severly damaged/scratched and your only option then is to buy a new game or find a service that repairs scratched DVDs . I hope it helps.

Hi melissami133

PLEASE RATE MY ANSWER IF ITS HELPFUL !

FOR XBOX:

With the new Xbox 360 interface, the how-to below is not working anymore! You can do the following to reset your console:
To reset the display settings of the Xbox 360 console to the default settings, follow these steps:
  • 1. Remove any discs from the disc tray.
  • 2. Turn the console off.
  • 3. Turn the console on.
  • Note If you are using an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, turn the console on by using the Xbox Guide button on the controller.
    Note Make sure that you use the player 1 controller when you do this. The player 1 controller is the controller where the upper-left quadrant light is on.
  • 4. As the console starts, press and hold the Y button, and then pull the right trigger at the same time. This causes the Xbox Dashboard to reset the display settings to the default settings and then automatically restarts the console. So it's OK when the Xbox 360 console restarts.
FOR PS3 :

Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's native resolution for all settings.

It needs to get an update, After it updates it says it again


Give this a try,to clear what may be a faulty update.
1. Turn off your console
2.press the sync button on the console
3.still pressing the sync button, turn on your console with the power button.
4.wait until fully booted up, then release the sync button, this will clear any faulty updates, then try loading the update again.
If that still does not work you can download updates on to a dvd rom, just google downloading updates to console.aspx.
Vote if this helps.

Wont link to x-box live,


Do you have your xbox upright? or flat? as I have came
accross this problem myself which is usually cured by laying the xbox flat. Don't know if it's gravity related or not. (This is the dvd drive by the way)

As for xbox live, are you signed up for xbox live gold or silver?

Silver doesn't let you play games online only gold does.

Hope this helps.
