    Traditionally, on the original classic xBox a red light is accompanied with an error message on the screen. Is there anything on the screen?

An indicator light that is flashing red indicates that there is an Electrically Erasable Programmable
Read Only Memory (EEPROM) error and that Xbox cannot start. EEPROM is a memory device that does not lose the information programmed to it when power is lost.
This is where items such as language setting, video modes, audio modes, and game region are stored.
Back to the top THINGS TO TRY
1. Remove all discs from the Xbox console.
2. Turn off the Xbox console and leave it off for thirty seconds.
3. avoid overheating and other problems.
Make sure the Xbox console is not located near a heat source.
Heat sources can include TVs, computers, monitors, and other electrical devices.
Make sure the vents are not blocked. There are vents on the left and right side,
and on the rear of the Xbox console. Make sure each vent has at least six inches
of clearance and space for air to circulate. If the Xbox is inside a cabinet, move it to see
if this prevents heat problems.
4. After the Xbox console is set, turn it back on and make surethat you see a steady green indicator light on the front.
5. If the console continues to flash a red light, the console may need repair.
