XBox 360 power problem

Do I am playing along last night after getting the thing 3 days ago. All of a sudden it just shuts down and a single red light comes on at the power supply cord box. The power button will not turn the unit on. If I unplug everything and plug it all back in the light initialy comes on as yellow on the power cord. As soon as I hit the power button on the console the light goes red...no power to console.

Last night I had 3 lights come up on the xbox within 10 minutes of play...this morning I checked it and all was normal but have not tried to play it yet. what does this mean? Most of what I have read the 3...


The 3 red lights is a hardware problem. At first it can be intermittent. When my first xbox got the red lights. It did it once, then the next 2 days was fine, then it did it again. Eventually it will get worse and no longer work at all. Contact Microsoft to see if the unit is still under warranty.

It just shut off and wont load.


This is a common fault with the 360, it says that its a "general hardware failure" which could mean anything
really. In truth its the lead free solder that cracks with so much heat and as a result the Xbox 360 fails
causing the 3rrod (3 red rings of death) or e74 etc

You will need to get a 3rrod repair kit or get someone to fix it for you, there are guides available on the
internet.

This is unfortunately a common problem with the console, you are eventually going to just get the three red lights and the unit will be dead. Call Microsoft now to get them to replace the unit. You can call them at 1-800-4-My-Xbox
