Question about Microsoft Video Game Consoles & Games

1 Answer

Xbox 360 multiple sets of rings. Anyway, ive been repairing my friends (4-5 year old) Xbox because it got the red rings. I have it because he thought it was flooded when his basement flooded. It worked fine for about a week and a half then it got the red rings. I opened it (numerous times by now) to fix it. I just took everythuing out and put it back in. I bent the Xclamps a little bit but that was to try to tighten he heat sinks. I havent done anything else to it though. It will turn on but it will have the three red rings. Then after about a minute it turns into the two red rings. Another qeustion, on the sides of the dvd drive, on the xbox itself there are like two hairpin looking things that i took off because they are a pain in the *** to put on. Do i need those? I just want it to work again. Any help will help. Thanks!!!

    i can get it to get to three green lights every once in a while but then it changes to the two rings. Sometimes it will even get to were all four rings flash when you start it you know? after they go around in a circle. Then it goes to the two red lights.

I have 4 red lights on xbox 360 how do i fix it?


This is known as the 'red ring of death' It is likely that you will need to send in your Xbox to Microsoft for repair. It is possible that you are still covered under warranty. Does the E74 error message appear? See here http://bit.ly/56NTkB

Alternatively Microsoft recommends trying a different set of Audio Video cables.Source http://bit.ly/6eWcLD

Good luck

E74 ON MY XBOX 360


THIS IS LINKED with the 3 red lights, or the red ring of death, so as long as its not 3 years old, Microsoft will repair it in the 3 year extended warranty, so head to xbox.com/support and get a repair, should take about 1-2 weeks.

3 red lights appear - XBOX


Your console is most likely in need of repair.

The 3 Red Lights (known as the red ring of death) is caused when the unit overheats, and burns out some integral parts on the motherboard.

Call Microsoft, if your Xbox is less than 3 years old, they'll set you up with an exchange. It'll take 4 weeks, and you'll have to pay for shipping your broken Xbox, but it'll get fixed.

As far as I know, there's no way to permanently repair the Red ring of death yourself.

My Xbox 360 has sound but no Picture


This happened to my first 360, and in my case, it was a hardware failure. You can call Microsoft and hope your warranty is still good, and they'll fix it free of charge, but if its not, then you have to pay a fee.

No picture on xbox still


hi, mine did this yesterday, i got my console for my birthday in march 06

i found a sloution on the internet which i thought was worth a try

wrap the console in a towel to block air getting in, and turn it on, leave it until it is reallyreallyreally hot

now you can choose to either wait til it overheats and you get the rrod
or do what i done and flick the plug on and on, and it'll come up with the rrod

then just turn it off and turn it back on

it worked for me just now, and if it doesn't microsoft fixed my console for rrod last year even though it was well out of warranty, and they did it for free

so if it doesn't work, send it off saying you've got the rrod problem, and you should get it repaired anyway :)
