If Im not mistaken 4 red light means there is a bad connection
with the a/v cable try swapping the cable out with another one
calling M.S is a waste of time and energy.

Red Ring of Death: Red Flashing XBOX 360 Lights Explained Common Xbox 360 Red Ring Errors The XBOX has a reported 54.2% failure rate which makes the XBOX 360 gaming consoles' worst "lemon" to date. If you find yourself with the red flashing lights error, --> lg.php?category_id=15&content_type=article&content_type_id=2663399&key_page=682482001924178892&site_id=1&bannerid=11791&campaignid=3153&zoneid=23&loc=1&referer=http%3a%2f%2fwww.associatedcontent.com%2farticle%2f2663399%2fred_ring_of_death_red_flashing_xbox.html%3fcontent_type%3darticle%26content_type_id%3d2663399&cb=8da55f49a0 follow this guide to try and pinpoint the problem with your XBOX 360.

1 Red Ring = Serious Hardware Failure
I f your XBOX 360 has a 1 red flashing light error, you're more than likely in big trouble. The 1 flashing red ring of light can be due to GPU or CPU failure, RAM overheating, a DVD drive error, or some serious problem with your Xbox 360's internal components. The most common 1 flashing red ring lights error is the E74 error. The E74 error is no easy fix for the Xbox 360 and usually has to be repaired by the manufacturer [though some have managed to repair it with the heat gun trick - but be careful]

2 Red Rings = Overheating
Mostly all red flashing lights on the Xbox 360 rings are due to overheating in some way or other, but the 2 red rings singles out overheating as the main issue. When doing the X-Clamp fix the 2 red rings are required to fix the Xbox 360 by overheating the CPU. If you get this Xbox 360 error without doing the X-Clamp fix, you probably just need to let your Xbox 360 cool down for a few hours. Make sure that all vents aren't blocked off and that your Xbox fans are working properly in order to repair this problem.

3 Red Rings = Basic Hardware Failure
The most common error on the Xbox 360 is the 3 red rings - also known as the Red Rings of Death (RRoD). This flashing lights problem is the main cause of Xbox 360's 54.2% failure rate. The 3 red flashing lights can be due to lots of different errors but is mainly due to the X-Clamps in your Xbox 360 and overheating. Fortunately, lots of people were able to fix this issue using the X-Clamp and heat gun fix. Follow this list of error codes to find out the real issue with the 3 red rings because there are quite a few of them.

How to set up your xbox 360 without causing overheat


take everything out your new xbox 360 packaging. there should be:
1)a console (obvioiusly)
2) a cable that connects your 360 to a power block
3) a power block that connects your xbox to the wall
4) a cable that connects your xbox to the tv
5) a small rectangular box that connects your cable into the scart port on your tv.

lets begin
take the cable and connect it to the power block and move the power block to the side
take the scart plug (small rectangular box) and connect the yellow white and red wires into the approprite slots (these are marked out on your scart plug) and move to the side
pace your console down 90 deg. on its side in your desired position.
WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING WA
do NOT place your xbox 360 standing up as this can cause red ring of death syndrome and other known xbox killers due to overheating i am on my second 360 as i never followed my own advise.if you keep your console standing straight it can cause vibrations which knock your cooling sinc out of place. it can also scratch your games more easily and ring them making them UNPLAYABLE. now place all cables you set aside and connect them into appropriate slots on the back of the console. and connect them into wall socket and tv.
thanks for reading.now wheres the free cake i was promised.

My xbox keeps on freezing and the red light on the power button keeps flashing,no picture was coming out of tv? what seems to be the problem??


three ring problem is a common problem among xbox 360 manufactured from 2006-2008,

step to do

1. as soon as u get 3 ring, swith off the device for more than 1 hour and unplug all wires to the xbox (including the main adapter wire), now try to replug and swith on, there are chance it will work

The cause of this problem, players 1,2 and 3 lighting up red, is related to the motherboard overheating and the microprocessors separating from the over heated motherboard.
The options you have are either download a repair manual, if you feel you are tech savvy enought to dis assemble and repair using a RRoD repair kit found on Ebay, otherwise, if the unit is under warranty send back to Microsoft, They increased the warranty life in regaurds to this issue recently so check to see if you are covered before attempting any repairs yourself.
Good Luck.

4 red ligths on my xbox 360.


The AV cable cannot be detected

THINGS TO TRY
  1. Make sure that the AV cable is correctly connected to the Xbox 360 console.
  2. Disconnect the AV cable from the Xbox 360 console, and then reconnect the AV cable to the Xbox 360 console.
  3. If the four flashing red lights continue to flash, try wiping the metal area of the AV pack with a dry cloth. The metal area is the end that plugs into the console. Wipe the metal area thoroughly, and then try the AV Pack again.
  4. If the AV cable is correctly connected but the four red lights are still flashing, substitute a different AV cable if you have one available.

Red Lights


Hello misspay,

According to Microsoft Support, the 4 red lights mean the Audio-Visual (AV) cable is not connected or plugged into your Xbox 360 correctly. Please make sure the AV cable is connected correctly to your Xbox 360. To do this, disconnect the AV cable and firmly connect the AV cable to the Xbox 360 console.

I hope this fixes your problem here is a link that will provide you with more solutions to try and fix the issue.

Sincerely,

Agent Xiong

4 red light is a problem with your AV cable.
THINGS TO TRY
  1. Make sure that the AV cable is correctly connected to the xbox 360
  2. Disconnect the AV cable from the Xbox 360 console, and then reconnect the AV cable to the Xbox 360 console.
  3. If the four flashing red lights continue to flash, try wiping the metal area of the AV pack with a dry cloth. The metal area is the end that plugs into the console. Wipe the metal area thoroughly, and then try the AV Pack again.
  4. If the AV cable is correctly connected but the four red lights are still flashing, substitute a different AV cable if you have one available.

    You can also check to see what the error code is yourself if your not sure whats wrong with it.

    To do this, you turn your x-box on, press the Connect button on the console itself and hold it in. Now press the DVD eject button to and look at the lights. it should be flashing 1 light, 2 lights, 3 lights, or 4 lights. grab a piece of paper and write down how many lights are showing. While still holding the connect button, press the eject button again. Write down how many lights are showing again. Then press eject again, and write it down. Then do it one more time and write it down. After you do this, then come back on fixya.com and let me know what error code it is.

    1 Red light = 1
    2 Red lights = 2
    3 Red lights = 3
    4 red lights = 0

    so an example of what you might write down would be:
    0
0
0
1

which would be 0001.

If you figure out the error, you can also visit the following website and determine what it is and if you can fix it yourself:
