Those would be the "red lights of death". They mean that there's either a software problem or a hardware problem, depending on the number of lights and their sequence. What I would do is google it. Find a site that will tell you what's wrong with it. If not, then you can always send it back to Microsoft and they'll fix it for a fee...

2 flashing red lights


Two flashing red lights means it has overheated. Maybee it does have alot of ventilation but the dust may have ecumulated to an amount that can not escape the system case. Clean it really well with a can of compressed air and make sure fan is running in the back. Some fans fail but continue to spin so if it looks to slow it probably is. You can watch you tubes tutorials about opening and cleaning your console. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

My xbox has three red flashing lights, how can I get it working again?


My sons Xbox had the 3 red lights! It depends what colour of light is showing on your power pack the colour indicates what the problem is! The light will either be red,amber or green, my sons light was amber and that was due to a faulty power pack, Microsoft were very obliging and replaced the power pack free of charge,it arrived in 3 working days! Here is a link that will take you through the different lights and how to fix the problem!

2 red flashing lights


The Xbox console is overheated.
  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 red after you try steps 1 and 2, contact Xbox Customer Support.
To try to prevent this problem, follow these precautions:
  • Don't block any ventilation openings on your Xbox 360 console.
  • Don't put your Xbox 360 console on a bed, on a sofa, on a carpet floor, or on any other soft surface that may block ventilation openings.
  • Don't put your Xbox 360 console in a confined space, such as a bookcase, a rack, or a stereo cabinet, unless the space is well ventilated.
  • Don't put your Xbox 360 console near any heat source, such as a radiator, a heat register, a stove, or an amplifier.
Taken from Microsoft support.

Best of Luck.

2 red lights fans don;t work


Hey Marsh2Man,


It's not your fans that's causing the problem. It's the XBOX itself. The Xboxes generally overheat and this has been a big problem for Microsoft. Alot of companies are actually reflowing these system, reheating the solder under the chips allowing them to connect back down to the points on the board.


You will need your system reflowed. Contact a repair shop.
