When i turn my xbox 360 on the green light stays on for 30 seconds and then turns red and wont play what would be wrong


While on the RED light. Press and hold the "SYNC" button (don't let go if it during any of the stages). Now press and release the "EJECT button. Note the amount of flashing lights. Do this three more times (still holding the sync button) each time noting the amount of lights that flash. This will give you a total of 4 numbers. Go here to see what the issues is. https://xbox-experts.com/

Everytime i turn my xbox360 on its flashing red like it the red ring of death


1 Red Light

Your system indicates this error when only the bottom right part of the ring is flashing. When you have 1 red light on the Xbox 360, it is usually associated with an error code you see on the screen, such as the Xbox 360 error code E74.

Searching for this error code online or in the Microsoft support site will give you the description and solution. Usually the problem lies on the DVD drive whether it is the wrong firmware or lacks a chip.

It may also be a hard drive error which can be resolved by taking it out and putting it back in or it can be a voltage error which usually occurs if you have added accessories to it. It is best to research the error code so you know exactly what to do.

2 Red Lights

One of the most common is when two red lights are flashing. No need to panic if you see only see the Xbox 360 2 red lights. Its sole meaning is that the console is too hot and needs to cool down. Power down the system and try again in a few minutes or if possible after an hour or two.

After giving the system some rest and playing in a much cooler environment, you should be back to your gaming in better performance. If the problem persists however, you may need to have it serviced to have the cooling issue fixed.

3 Red Lights

If you see three flashing lights, you are experiencing the infamous Xbox three red lights problem that many other gamers are frustrated with. You may also know it as the Red Ring of Death.

At one point 1 out of every 3 Xbox 360 owners experienced this problem. This is the one error that you do not want to get. This highlights that there is a serious Xbox 360 hardware problem.

Your options are to send your console back to Microsoft for repair or to fix it yourself. Be prepared to spend a nice amount of money ($140 or so) if you are sending your system to Microsoft and you no longer have the Xbox 360 warranty.

If you want to try to fix the problem yourself then you can see reviews of guides that we recommend to show you step by step how to perform the repair.

4 Red Lights

If you have to get any flashing lights on your Xbox 360, pray that this is the one. If the entire ring flashes, it is a minor problem that indicates that the AV cable isn't connected properly or in rare instances, the cable is damaged. Make sure everything is properly connected and replace it if It still doesn't work.

My xbox 360 it has the 2 red lights flashing


The two red lights means it's overheated. One let it cool down, don't turn it on until it had good while to cool. Two give your 360 more ventilation room. If that's not enough buy intercooler for it. Remember just give it some room to breath. Get more cool air flowing through it and it should be fine.

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.

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.
