It could be a number of hardware related issues. Microsoft is well aware of this problem and is not going to recall them either. Read this:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xbox_360_technical_problems

The three flashing red lights indicates general hardware failure. You have three year warranty for your device, you might as well have it replaced as no particular solution is out yet for the infamous red rings of death...

SOURCE: 3 rings of death

Hey cpawlina, and Guest,

I understand exactly how you guys feel, believe me.

The only fix I have ever seen for this, (which usually co-incides with an act of god), is to remove the hard drive, and turn on the system without it. Sometimes this will make the 360 work.

The reason why this sometimes will solve the issue, is because the read/write times between the dvd-rom and hard drive become way too laggish, it will cause this red-ring to occur.

But if that doesn't help, then there is no easy fix to it. It has to be sent to microsoft, and get it fixed. I apologize for no other advise. I hope this works, and if not, I hope the guys at microsoft can be of better service then they're known for.

SOURCE: the ''3 red rings of death''

This means that there is a problem on the hardware on the unit already now there is a temporary fix to this although it would be best if you have this unit serviced already. The link to the temporary fix is a video on you tube.

XBOX link to the XBOX knowledgebase where you can contact for repairs to the unit.

SOURCE: there are 3 flashing red

This is the red ring of death and is usually caused when the unit overheats causing the solder to melt and bridge. Contact Microsoft to see if it is still under warranty.

How to Stop the Red Ring of Death on Xbox?


Hi Carolyn,
- notice poor game performance (if your games start taking a long time to load, or they become stutter or crash, it may be indicative of a looming hardware failure)
-notice poor system performance (if your system locks up, even when not playing games, this is a sign of hardware failing).
- understand the different light codes
Green-green lights indicate that console is powered and operating properly
1 red light-Hardware fault. Usually followed by E74 code on TV
2 red lights-overheating error. If the console becomes too hot, the system will shut down and display this light code
3 red lights-general hardware failure also known as the red ring of *****
4 red lights-AV cable isnt currently plugged in

If you do get red ring of *****:
- purchase a fix kit
-have console professionally fixed
-have console sent in to microsoft
-Prevent red ring of *****-understand what causes hardware failure
-keep your system in a well ventilated area
- avoid long gaming sessions
-keep system horizontal
-avoiding stacking items on xbox
-clean gaming area
-dust xbox

Disconnect everything and reconnect it,if that doesn't work, try to hook it up in a different room. If you are still having problems, you need to contact customer support and may have to order a new power supply cord.

Why is my xbox freezing when my xbox does not have red ring of death?


its probably overheating try using a fan constantly on it when you play. if that doesn't work i bet the red ring will show up. if that happens call 1800myxbox they have a step by step instruction system for you to send it down and get it fixed. but keep your hard drive at your home. hope this helps
-good luck

After swithing on the red light keeps on circling


you have the red rings of death (rrod) and the main cause of this is due to overheating if you only have one red ring then you can still save it. the easiest way to fix it is to get a cooling system for it and if that doesn't fix it you need a new one unfortunately.

if theres two red lights all that means is that its overheating. unplug all ur cables and put it underneath ur bed for an hour, then plug everything back in and keep playing

My games keep freezing but i have not got the red ring.


check to make sure everythings plug in correctly or you could just have a messed up 360 and have to send it back to the factory if you've had the red ring before go to xbox.com

Won't load game keeps blinkng red light


If the XBOX 360 is blinking the color RED in three of the four quarter of the ring around the power button, you will have to contact Microsoft for a replacement. This is what is known as "Red Ring of Death." You can find plenty of information on it if you Google it.

Click HERE for a video of the Red Ring of Death.

Click HERE for Microsoft's support system for the XBOX 360 and get in touch with Microsoft to get your replacement started.

It's the ONLY way.

Good luck.
