If the fan come on full speed and then over heats
with in 5-10 sec ,The C.P.U has broken the seal
between itself and the heat-sink .If you firmly
push down on the G.P.U. heat-sink this should reestablish
that seal , getting the box open is not hard , if you want to
remove the silver seal without damage use a little bit of lighter
fluid (liquid) and a fresh razor blade . little tip :)

or better yet play it safe and ship it to texas for repair

You can do it yourself but you void the Warranty. If you do void the Warranty & fix the problem great but it you dont & make it worse you will need a new system. Id send it in and wait 1-800-4my-xbox

My xbox 360 console is having a problem. when i turned it on this morning it said there was an error. ONe light was flashing and it was red. my friend was talking to me about this before and he said it was...


The single red light is not the "ring of death" error. The "ring of death" error would give you 3 red lights. The single red light could mean many different things. Are you getting any kind of error code on the screen when you turn the xbox on? My suggestion would be to unplug everything from the power, remove the hard drive and wait a few minutes. After, plug the power back in (leave the hard drive out) and attempt to power it back on and see if the error reoccurs. If you get an error, check for error messages on the screen and post them here. Unfortunately with most Xbox errors you will need to send it to Microsoft for repair. How old is the Xbox?

I have an xbox360 I had almost a year I went to switch it onan a red light apear and tells me to go to xbox custemer care E37


If you get the Xbox 360 1 red light message, it means that the problem is either with the DVD drive, or with the hard drive.

Fortunately, the Xbox 360 1 red light message is not something that you should worry about. In order to identify which of the two drives the Xbox 360 1 red light messages is referring to, just look the code number that the screen displays. DVD drive errors are identified with the codes E64, E65 and E66, whereas hard drive errors are identified with codes E67, E69 and E79.

Once you identify which error the Xbox 360 1 red light message is pointing to, fixing it is really easy. The guide available at Fix-xbox360.info will tell you what to do in each case, as well as what to do in case you get any of the other Xbox 360 lights messages. Check it out.

When I turned on my system, it had system error contact xbox customer support. There is a red light flashing on the bottom right, around the power button. I don't know what to do. Please help.


Some of us suddenly when we turn on our Xbox 360 console one day we got one red light flashes on the ROL (Ring of Light) around the Xbox 360 power button, and we got an Error message appearing on the TV screen "System error" also might occur with any error code like E66, E67, E68, E71, E74 or E77, all the same.

When you get any of these messages appearing on your screen with one red light flashing on the ROL of your Xbox 360 console that's an indicator of a hardware problem with the console connection to one of the parts connected to it as the hard drive or cables.

So, first disconnect all power and AV cables from the back of your Xbox 360 console and also unplug the power cord from the wall socket, wait for a minute then reconnect them all back and try to turn on your Xbox 360 console once more.

If that doesn't work, it seems then to be a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so turn off the console again and remove the hard drive then turn on your Xbox 360 console without the hard drive, supposed then to work fine, it might be an intermittent issue and when you reconnect the hard drive your Xbox 360 will work fine all after, or it will just work fine without the hard drive so it will be then definitely a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so call Xbox 360 customer support to exchange the hard drive for you.

The Xbox 360 console might even keep giving you the same error code even after you remove the hard drive so it will then appear to be a fault with your Xbox 360 console not the hard drive & also in a case like this we need to contact Xbox 360 customer support to exchange the console.

My xbox 360 has 3 red lights on the ring..i was playin modern warfare 2 online and went off it because my screen freezed and went back on 3 hours later and i had the rrod..??


yh thats what happened to mine before rrod. lucky enough microsoft put a 3 year warranty on consoles with the rrod so send it back if its less than that. if not the kits to fix it are on ebay for cheap as chips so all good and theres loads of vids on youtube to show you how. but if your really not interested on fixing it yourself and warranty is out the resale value seems to be pretty good you wont have to put much towards a new one if you sell it. let me no how u get on

2 red lights


This problem may occur when the Xbox console is too hot or is overheating. The flashing lights mean that the internal temperature of your Xbox 360 console has exceeded acceptable temperature limits. Let your Xbox 360 console cool. You may have to wait several hours for your Xbox 360 console to cool enough. Don't turn on your Xbox 360 console when the console is hot.Verify that your Xbox 360 console has enough ventilation and that the fans are operating. If the two lights continue to flash red after you try steps 1 and 2, contact Xbox Customer Support.

Microsoft can be contacted by finding the number listed on the back of your video game booklets.

Good Luck to you and Happy Gaming.
