If you have FOUR Red Rings on your XBOX, it means that you have a problem with your AV cable.

First, check the little switch on the AV cable. (it normally should be set to "TV" and not "HDTV")
Second, try swapping the AV cable with a known working one.
If that does not correct the problem, try cleaning the inside of the AV cable port on the back of the console.
As a final test, (if your XBOX and TV have the HDMI ports) try using the HDMI cable to see if the Red Ring goes away.

If that does not resolve the problem, please feel free to call us to discuss in more detail.

My Xbox 360 red ringed about four days ago, so I hadn't turned it on since then. I took it home for spring break to try to fix the problem or whatever, but when I turned it on, it didn't give

They can be. If the console is not working properly the controllers usually dont turn on correctly. Try sending it to i used them for my red ring issue with my XBox and got it back within the week. Also they were EXTREMELY low on price compared to the manufacture and offered me a 90 day warranty with all data saved. Hopefully this works for you!

It keeps spining will not stop

Air rachet? The valve probably got something in it and won't shut down the air flow. You will have to take the valve portion apart and clean it out. Look for any bad o-rings while you have it tore apart.

3 rings of death turned to 2 rings. xbox 360 NEED SUGGESTIONS

you probably did something to where you messed up your xbox motherboard, making it (after less then a minute of power) get short circuited and power fails. i would recommend getting it repaired by microsoft if you have a warranty.

Xbox 360 red light four red lights on the front of console

Yes you can fix it. Four red lights on is an indication that the video cable is not plugged into the console. I suggest you check and see if the pins in the cable and unit are not damaged and the cable is fully in the AV port. If all is well, than borrow another cable from a friend and try it in your console or try yours in theirs.

My xbox 360 keeps on restarting on its own

about the only thing I can recomend is make sure all connections are tight inside,because the most common thing to cause random resets is if a cable is loose,and the vibration causes it to make intermittent connection,shorting out and resetting.
