Re: need help!!!

Unfortunately there is nothing that you can directly do to fix this problem.

You have a hardware failure. Microsoft will repair your unit for you under warranty / recall.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Red light problem

If you are getting the red light error this is caused by different things depending on how many red lights you having showing up:

1 red light is the display chip overheating

2 red lights is the whole console overheating and you should try and cool it down to fix this.

3 red lights is the most common error and it is caused by the GPU and the CPU overheating, you will need to stop the heat build up.

4 red lights is just the AV cable not plugged in normally.

To fix the 1, 2 , 3 red light error you will need to send it in and they will fix it for you.

The only problem is that this can take about 4 weeks and you will also have to pay out a repair fee to fix the problem.

The other way is to use a good Xbox 360 Repair guide that will show you how to stop the heat build up on the chips.

There are a few of them about but i have put together a list of the top sites HERE.

I hope this helps and if so please rate it so it can help others.

Three Red Lights/Ring of death.

Free fixes? Impossible.

What causes the ROD is a loose processor. You can buy a better part and install it. I believe there should be a YouTube Video on this. There should be parts on eBay.

I hope this helped.

Your X clamps need to be tightened They are no longer holding the heat sinks on anymore and your Gpu is over heating.

X box 360 red ring of death costless solution

You don't need any money mate. Microsoft recently extended their warranty to 3 years for the three red lights problem. all you have to do is get in touch with microsoft and tell them about the three red lights, and they should either repair your X Box or they will replace it with a new one.
Good luck mate
