Hi,

This is usually a problem with the Xbox itself due to overheating. Try reconnecting all the video cables, and even try putting the Xbox on a different television. If the xbox is in an enclosed area, take it out before starting it again.

If none of that works, the only reliable solution to have it repaired is through Microsoft, unfortunately. You can call their tech support and set up a replacement through 800-4MY-XBOX

My dynex tv only shows channel not available message?


Okay- the three cables (red, white, and yellow) are called RCA plug connectors. They are commonly used to carry audio and video signals.
Plug them into your Xbox according to the color codes- red cable connector to the red socket (jacks); then white to white, and yellow to yellow.
Now connect these leads to the RCA input jacks in the back of your t.v. - maintaining the same color code connections (red to red; white to white, and yellow to yellow)
The RCA input jacks on your t.v. should be labeled with an input number, to distinguish itself from the other inputs, like HDMI, S-Video, and such.
After plugging in your Xbox to the wall outlet or surge strip, turn it on.
Turn your t.v. set on.
With the remote control that came with your t.v. set, open the menu bar, scroll to... and open the "External Output" menu.
You should see a list of [however many] inputs your particular t.v has. Scroll to the input number that the 3 RCA cables are attached to, and press that number as the default video screen.
Exit the prompts and your Xbox video screen should be displayed.

I just purchased a pre owned xbox360 and got it home. Connected it to my none HD tv. upon powering the unit on it keeps freezing. I purchased a 20GB HD with the unit. I have not put the unit online as of...


Unfortunately if the xbox is freezing, this is usually an early sign of the 3 red lights error, commonly called the RROD (Red Ring Of Death). This may not be the case necessarily, but it is a common indication. The only thing I can recommend is to keep the box well cooled, heat is a major factor in the xbox freezing up. Put it out in the open (not in an entertainment center) and possibly put it on a laptop cooler pad. I don't recommend the enermax cooler, they have been known to fry xbox motherboards in the past.

If you do get the three flashing red lights, call Microsoft at 1-800-4MY-XBOX. If the box wasn't registered to the previous owner, you may be eligible for the warranty.

Games and demos would freeze after about 10-30 min (or sometimes in less time) of gameplay. Now the Xbox 360 turns on but nothing but a blank tv screen and everybody's favorite red ring of death. What...


Go on xbox.com, and it is one of the first FAQ's. It will direct you to fill out your info and MS will send you an empty box and a UPS label. Follow their directions, and you should have a new box in a couple of weeks for free.

Three red rings flashing


if it is red(or darker orange) you have the three rings of death most of the time that means to send your x-box back to the manufacturer. but call Microsoft first.

Maybe it is your screen, try it on a different tv. And if you want *** to stop freezing don't let it heat up to much and put the big grey electric power box thing on the edge of another box so its area isn't covered as much
