Red Ring of Death: Red Flashing XBOX 360 Lights Explained Common Xbox 360 Red Ring Errors The XBOX has a reported 54.2% failure rate which makes the XBOX 360 gaming consoles' worst "lemon" to date. If you find yourself with the red flashing lights error, --> lg.php?category_id=15&content_type=article&content_type_id=2663399&key_page=682482001924178892&site_id=1&bannerid=11791&campaignid=3153&zoneid=23&loc=1&referer=http%3a%2f%2fwww.associatedcontent.com%2farticle%2f2663399%2fred_ring_of_death_red_flashing_xbox.html%3fcontent_type%3darticle%26content_type_id%3d2663399&cb=8da55f49a0 follow this guide to try and pinpoint the problem with your XBOX 360.

1 Red Ring = Serious Hardware Failure
I f your XBOX 360 has a 1 red flashing light error, you're more than likely in big trouble. The 1 flashing red ring of light can be due to GPU or CPU failure, RAM overheating, a DVD drive error, or some serious problem with your Xbox 360's internal components. The most common 1 flashing red ring lights error is the E74 error. The E74 error is no easy fix for the Xbox 360 and usually has to be repaired by the manufacturer [though some have managed to repair it with the heat gun trick - but be careful]

2 Red Rings = Overheating
Mostly all red flashing lights on the Xbox 360 rings are due to overheating in some way or other, but the 2 red rings singles out overheating as the main issue. When doing the X-Clamp fix the 2 red rings are required to fix the Xbox 360 by overheating the CPU. If you get this Xbox 360 error without doing the X-Clamp fix, you probably just need to let your Xbox 360 cool down for a few hours. Make sure that all vents aren't blocked off and that your Xbox fans are working properly in order to repair this problem.

3 Red Rings = Basic Hardware Failure
The most common error on the Xbox 360 is the 3 red rings - also known as the Red Rings of Death (RRoD). This flashing lights problem is the main cause of Xbox 360's 54.2% failure rate. The 3 red flashing lights can be due to lots of different errors but is mainly due to the X-Clamps in your Xbox 360 and overheating. Fortunately, lots of people were able to fix this issue using the X-Clamp and heat gun fix. Follow this list of error codes to find out the real issue with the 3 red rings because there are quite a few of them.

Hi! i got those damn three red lights and get an error code 0020 what is wrong??? thank you :)


Unfortunately, the 0020 error means that the motherboard of the console is overheating and bending the board loses contact with the heat sink and GPU (graphics processor unit). If the unit is under warranty, contact Microsoft Xbox support. (The warranty for the 3 red light issues was extended to a 3-year warranty.)

If it is out of warranty, there are a couple of things to try. 1) Modify the X Clamp on at least the GPU; sometimes the X Clamp on the CPU also needs to be fixed. Remove the heat sink and put a better coat of thermal paste on the processors. Then either replace the original heat sink or use a better one. http://www.llamma.com/xbox360/repair/ring_of_light_x-clamp_fix.htm

2) Some people have fixed the problem by heating the entire motherboard with a heat gun to straighten out the entire board. (Protect the capacitors and other parts on the top of the board with towels.)

I hope this helps.

0102


Hi,
0102 Error in the "Digital Backbone" (CPU/GPU/RAM) is usually caused by a cold solder joint between the GPU and the mainboard.
There are two theories to fixing this. One deals with the "X" clamps that hold down the chips. The other involves re-Heating the chips. DO NOT attempt either of these if your console is still under warranty. If your console is still under warranty return it to the store where it was purchased or call Microsoft to have it replaced.
Thank you!

My xbox 360 has the RROD Error code 0110 Need Help Fixing


If you truly were able to re-solder the memory module joints and are still getting this error, then make sure there is NO dust in the vents and heat sinks. Otherwise, the memory solder still needs to be re-flowed. There are many ways to do this. If you have an infrared soldering apparatus you are all set :D, but if you have one of those you are not the type to be asking how to fix electronics here. Here is a decent tutorial on reflowing with a heat gun:

The other method is an oven... bit trickier. I'd stick to a heat gun.

The screen locks up on the initial startup. after


e74 or rrod error means that there is an hardware issue.
What you need to do is a very simple and cheap repair.
look on ebay for x clamp repair kits, these are just a few bucks and most sellers include a good guide in how to do the mod/fix.
what causes the rrod or e74 error is the X shape clamp on the underside or the mother board bending and mis-shaping causing the ball soldering on the gpu/cpu slightly melting and forming hairline cracks in the solder.
The x-clamp kit will apply more pressure to the gpu/cpu and a little trick of disconnecting the fans and turning on the xbox and allowing it to overheat will re melt the solder ball joints to fill the hairline cracks.
Depending on which chip is the issue you may also need a 2000 watt heat gun instead of using the over heating method (the gpu chip).
Replacing the heat pads on the heat sink with thermal paste which comes with the kit will keep the gpu/cpu cooler and you wont have this issue again.
Please make sure you buy the kit which comes with heat treated nylon washers as the steel spring washes fail!.
The repair takes around 1-2 hours
I hope this helps in fixing you xbox.

Xbox goes from 3 light rrod to 2 light rrod


2 lights: overheating but in your case most likely bad contact between either the CPU or GPU with the heatsink. Check all your washers and make sure they are even. If missing one it will create an unevent surface. If all looks good try put more thermal compound.

3 red lights: still not working after replacing the xclamps.
solution: try the heat gun fix and you will have much better luck.

Error 0110


0110 Memory Error / Memory Overheating - see solution for error 0102

* though it's most likely GPU related literally means the console does not know what is wrong. possibly a short or cold solder joint somewhere. So far there is 1 major theory for what causes most of these errors is that the Ram, CPU, or GPU are not soldered properly to the mother board due either to poor manufacturing or excessive heat up and cool down cycles that stress, weaken and eventually break the soldered connection.
There are two theories to fixing this one deals with the "X" clamps that hold down the chips. The other involves re-Heating the chips. DO NOT attempt either of these if your console is still under warranty. If your console is still under warranty return it to the store where it was purchased or call MS to have it replaced. I have also heard of limited success by simply switching the AV cable from "HDTV" mode to "TV" mode.
