Something has overheated in the unit causeing the red ring. I would if I where you is to clean it out and try to start it again.

If that does not help the best bet would to call sony for rapair at this point.

But if it still works and you want to keep playing with it like that its all fine and good but i am sure its not going to last you long.

This is called Red Ring of Death or RROD by the community, it means that the CPU or GPU or both have a bad solder joint, that is caused from rapid heating and cooling from poor cooling design of the xbox 360. To fix it is pretty simple. Follow these instructions to take apart your 360: http://www.rrodfix.com/how-to-take-apart-the-microsoft-xbox-360-game-console.html Stop once you've removed the dvd drive. Now Remove the fans from the back, and set them on the heatsink on the right the flat one, and make sure they are pointing where the air is going up. Put a peice of of carboard or plastic something non conductive in between the heatsinks to prevent airflow from the fans. Turn on the 360, and leave it til it goes from 3 rings to 2 rings, wait 3 minutes, then switch the fan over to the other side. Wait about as long as you did for the other one then turn off the 360. Wait 1 hour for the 360 to cool off. DO NOT move the 360 while it is cooling down durning this period or you will permantly ruin it, the solder is being reflowed. After an hour, put the fans back, and turn the 360 on, it should work. Once its working, I recommend doing a 12 volt mod on the fans to prevent RROD from happening again, and changing out the thermal paste with artic silver 5. As for reading discs, open up the drive air it out, but not the laser, use a qtip and some rubbing alchol, clean it off and put it back together. Fans all you can do is replace them which I recommend just buying off of ebay or llamma.com

Four red rings means there is a malfunction with your AV cables, usually it happens when they're not plugged in all the way. So it should have nothing to do with it. Unfortunately your CD/DVD drive may be starting to go. If it doesn't read disc then try ejecting and loading again. if that doesn't work you will probably need your Drive replaced. Feel free to contact me if it comes to this.

Xbox 360 dosent READ AND ROTATE WELL! PLZ HELP ME!


Hi there,

you will need to take this apart, and look inside the disc drive itself, and most likely tights some screws up as they get loose with the vibrations of the drive

Doesnt read my discs


This happens to me sometimes as well, but usually it's very infrequent, and happens mostly with old original xbox games.

Basically, the xbox is just temporarily confused. Just eject and reinsert the disc and try again. Usually, the second try always worked for me. If that won't work, simply reboot the xbox with the disc in the drive. Now try to run the game.

Let us know if this works.
