Hello a few weeks back i was playing my xbox 360 and i pluged it into the internet to do a update as i nomally do every so often, and i got that red ring of death as everyone likes to call it so i called the number and and the red right was resolved then i was in the middle of playing assassins creed and the screen went out in a variaty of colors then went black but i could still hear the sound, i just got off the phone with customer service for the company and i refuse to send them 100.00 to get this resolved i shouldnt have to pay that much to fix it when i already spent almost 500.00 for the system

    well i dont have 100.00 to spend to get it reapaired and probably wont have that money for quite awhile im gonna have a broken unit taking up space for quite some time, and the problem with my xbox is that my girlfriends brother bought it from one of his friends and then i bought it from him and have had no problems for about 6 months or more, i cant afford to ship it out to get it fixed and im not gonna open it, but if xbox extended the warrenty then why must i pay any money?

Your waranty is your best bet. If the video chip or cpu is allready fried MS are the only ones who can replace it and / or fix it.That being said IF YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE (no waranty and no money) I've read of many people replacing the thermal paste under the cpu and video chip. Google "opening the xbox360". YOU WILL VOID YOUR WARANTY !!! MS has recently spent alot of money extending the waranty because of the red ring of death. Hope the answer and WARNING helps.$100.00 is not as bad as losing your xbox360 especialy if the componets are allready fried.

RED lights flashing


This is going to sound like a very strange solution, but it worked for me, twice. My xbox 360 gave me the red ring of death once, and in my despair I asked a few friends about anything they can think of, and one suggested letting it run for 10 minutes while wrapped in a towel, or blanket. By that point I was desperate enough to try it (I had bought a refurbished one, so it wasn't under warranty anymore), and lo and behold, my xbox 360 is as good as new. Basically what you're doing is shocking the system into working via overheating... I know that doesn't make much sense, but, like I said before, it worked twice for me. Hope this helps!

Xbox 360 problem


If you can still HEAR sound, but can't see. Check your Audio Video Cable.

It's the colorful one (red, white, yellow) (red, blue green, white, red)

Make sure the connections are secure into the back of the TV as well as the connection to the back of the Xbox 360.
