My xbox has 3 flashing red lights on front. What does this mean

It means your system has the dreaded RROD Or Red Ring Of Death,

If you turn the system on and hold the sync button and then hit the eject button, You can find its code you will have to do it 4 times, 1 light means 1 2 lights means 2 3 Means 3 and 4 lights means 0.

You can usually get a code like 0020 0102 and so on, below is a link that will tell you what each error code means,

also look at the back of your system locate the manufacture date, If it's within 3 years of that date don't open the system call microsoft and have them fix it for free.

3 flashing red

You have the dreaded Red Ring of Death. IF you contact Microsoft at, they have extended their warranty regarding this issue to 3 years. They will send you a return shipper and cover postage both ways if you ask them to as well. This will be repaired at no cost to you.

Red light flashes on the xbo 360

this can sometimes be as simple as re-plugging all the cables into the 360. When the a/v cable is not in correctly then it will flash red in all 4 corners. if its any other such as the dreaded 3 red rings of death (3rrod) then you need to replace the x-clamps, re-paste the chips with some decent paste such as arctic silver, add a team xecuter 3rrod repair kit and then go over the board with a heatgun to re-seat all the solder and pads. we offer a repair service if you cant do this yourself

3 red flashing lights

When you turn on the console, look at the light on the power supply. The power supply light should illuminate green even if the three lights on the Ring of Light flash red. If the power supply is button is red than you need to replace the battery or check the connections.

The three flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with your Xbox 360 console. If you are experiencing this problem, you can submit a console-repair request online.

Hopefully your system is still under warranty.

Unfortunately this is a very touchy situation. There is one home method for curing this problem.

1). Wrap your Xbox 360 Console COMPLETELY with a towel, so you can only see the power button, and the three flashing red lights.

2). Power on your console.

3). Leave for 30-45 minutes.

4). Power off the console.

5). Unwrap the towel from the console.

6). Power on.

**Problem Solved** If not continue reading.

After that you are unfortunately forced to call the dreaded Microsoft Customer Support Line


And ask to create a repair order, they will send you a Purolator (or FedEx) shipping box. You have to send your console to them, they will repair it and have it to you within (2-3 business weeks).
