Xbox is the worst company to deal with, you'd be better off throwing it away.

Re: x box 360

First make sure that all of your cables are still plugged in. I know it's highly unlikely that one came out on it's own, but it happened to me. If they ARE still plugged in, try UN-plugging all of them and then re-connecting them. Then turn it back on.

What you're experiencing is known as the Red Ring of Death. (Microsoft prefers to call it the Red Ring of Light though, because, well, it's a happier way of putting it.)

It's basically a hard-drive failure. It's pretty bad. It happens to a lot of people, and could be caused from a million different things.

At any rate, if un-plugging and reconnecting all of your cables doesn't work; you'll have to contact Xbox Support via phone or email, explain your problem to them, wait a few days for them to get back to you to let you know that they're sending you an empty box with pre-paid postage on it for you to ship the console back to them in Texas for it to be repaired or replaced.

Sorry for such a long-winded explanation, but there's really no sure-fire way to fix that problem so far other than sendin' your console back for repairs.

Xbox 360 two red lights in left quadrant

well dust can accumilates in the wierdest ways.

try blowing the air holes with a compress air cans. or take it apart and clean the inside. dust can build up with 3 months of playing depends on your area if you have pets or smokers in the area, dust comes from all sorts.
so try keeping your XBOX360 cooled as possible and keep it cleaned.

i use a air compressor when cleaning mine i try to clean it like every 3-4 months depending on how much I play it.

So keep it clean also red lights could mean no video device connected too, so check your video / audio connector.

The 360 won't even turn on.

found a great repair guide that also has follow along videos. It was an easy fix, and my xbox has been working now for 3 months with this fix. I've also fixed several other XBox 360s using the same guide.

Now I'm using the guide to buy broken xbox 360s off of ebay and sell them back for big profits.

3 red lights

I am afraid that you may have the red ring of death. 3, I believe, is a major hardware failure. What you need to do is look online for the red ring of death and see if it is what your console looks like. If so, call MS and get support. They will send you a box and you will mail your 360 in, and within a month it will be back to normal. I believe this is the only way to fix the red ring of death.

Help with xbox 360

try pressing and holding the bluetooth button on your 360 while doing this turn your xbox on and keep holding until it boots completely even if it does not make it to the boot screen just keep holding it until you think the time would have passed for it to boot up. power off your xbox. wait about 5 minutes and then reboot believe me this little method fixes alot of the xbox problems so it makes me wonder if some of the error codes are really correct. one more thing i strongly recommend the use of a cooling device for the 360 which ever one you choose
