I've done this once, I changed the password for the email that I use for my xbox account and then I forgot I had so when the Xbox asked me to login I kept entering in my old password. If this didn't help you try reseting the password for the email.

Open up the console, and clean the DVD Drive lens with some rubbing alcohol and a q-tip. Then put the console back together. If you're uncomfortable with doing that, then either get a friend to do it for you or send the console in to Microsoft for repair.

SOURCE: My xbox 360 keeps freezing!!

wrap your 360 in a towel (Completely Covered), turn on the system for about 10 minutes, turn it off, then back on again and and it should work.Although this fix only works fr about three hours it works over and over but the problem you have can also be fixed by replacing the thermal compound on the heat syncs and it should only cost about $5.00 to fix your 360. But my second solution should only be used if the warranty is void

My xbox 360 keeps freezing after a few minutes how can i fix it?


The same thing happened to me and then i got the rrod. :(. But then i did the towel trick and now its works again. the towel trick is where you unplug every thing included the hdd but leave the power cable in. then you wrap the xbox in towels and let it cook for about 20 min. then when its done let it cool for 15 min then it should work again.

if you mean the 3 red lights, simple. You will need to have the xbox 360 running, 2 or so towels, and some time. First keep the xbox 360 running, then put the towels over the 360 (make sure to cover the vents). Keep it on for around 20 mins. Then after take off the towels, and let the system cool for another 20 mins. This should let it run for atleast another 2 hours.

There are solder issues, so something to try is just leave the xbox on for an hour, turn off let cool for 5 min. If that doesn't work, it's a difficult solution to recommend but the towel trick' does work, let it over heat the 360 for about 20 min, then let it cool for 20 more min, and it now works fine, I have a inner cooler now to keep from overheating again. Also don't take apart the xbox, if this doesn't work then just send it back to microsoft

Xbox shuts down during a game 3 red lights


hey johnny you will have to call microsoft and get it fixed there is one thing you can do in the mean time to temp fix it.

what you need is two towels just normal bathroom towels take everything out of your xbox e.g harddrive,controlers etc only things to leave in is the av cable and power supply as you wanna turn on the xbox lie a towel flat on the ground and lie the xbox on its side ontop of the towel turn the xbox on, you will see the error message and the red lights flash. wrap the towel around your xbox covering the air vents and then the 2nd towel put over the top. leave it on in the towels for about 20 mins then after that take all the towels off turn off the console and leave to cool down for 15 mins. turn the xbox on and it should restart again fine but only lasts for a couple of days then you have to do it again. wont fix it but will let u play while microsoft gets it.

hope this helps please rate me

regards grant
