The red rings of death mean that your console over heated. A part is just over heated and can not recover what so ever from it. You must contact Microsoft for them to replace your console.

My xbox 360 has two red lights flashing. What should i do? I've already let it cool for four hours. I've never had this problem before. i played with it for over five hours last night. It was in a...


This is an overheating problem Microsoft Knowledge Base article 907533 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/907533

You may be able to send it back to Microsoft under warranty - which is worth it as they offer extended warranty against this and the 3 light problem.

If out of warranty and if you're feeling up to it, you could try a repair yourself. The majority of the overheating problems are either caused by inadequate ventillation or build up of dust within the xbox, in particular around the cpu and gpu heatsinks,and the rear fan. The trick is to dismantle the xbox without breaking lugs/tabs. Here's a repair guide for 3 red lights, but it shows you how to safely open the xbox 360. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bo2dl2vlwis
There are two vids for this
Once you have the xbox open, using a small fine paintbrush, cotton buds/q-tips and can of compressed air, clean all the dust and fluff from the cpu and gpu heatsinks and the rear fan. Be particularly careful if brushing dust from the mainboard as the smd components are quite fragile. Once all clean, re-assemble the xbox in the reverse order of opening it. Hope this helps

How do i fix an xbox 360? everytime i turn it on after 5-10 minutes the screen goes blue and the green light are replaced by 2 red rings of death. How can i prevent this from happening please help? ...


Without opening up the console itself, there is nothing you can do. By opening up the console, you will void the warranty also, so unless you are trained in console repair, this is ill-advised. If you contact Microsoft directly, they are usually very helpful with repairing or replacing faulty units up to around 3 years old. Their details can be found on their website or in your manual.

the 2 segments lighting up means the xbox is over heating either open it up and clean all the dust out or try vacuming out the dust through the vent holes, but if its realy dusty opening it up will be you best option, hope this helps.

2 red lights as soon as i turn 360 on!


You might have a faulty wire, this simply means check that all wires are in properly in the back of 360! If this still happens you can send it into a gaming shop and get it fixed for just £50. DIGMAN

Its because it has got way too hot. Switch it off for a few hours and let it cool down.

Also move it to a position where it gets plenty of ventilation around it, dont put it under the tv or next to a monitor.

You could also vacuum the fans and clear out any dust from them.
