Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

2 Answers

3 red lights

I have performed a "fix" I sent for on-line that had me attach pieces of eraser to memory chips. no good. It was suggested to wrap the unit in towels to heat the unit, then let it cool down. no good. What exactly are the 3 red lights indicating? If this is a temp problem, will something reset if I cool the unit down?The unit has set for hours off and I think would be "cool" after that period but the lights are there immediatly upon power up?

    I could not locate the "fix" in the reply I received. I clicked on several areas of the response and got a "repeat" of my initial problem? Please help me to navigate your response.

I modified my xbox to get rid of the RROD(i replaced the x clamp with regular machine screws). The ring went away but now the screen freezes with a checker pattern and becomes unresponsive within a minute...


You may have tightened the screws to much. I had this happen to a RROD repair I performed. Worse case sinario is the gpu got fried. Did you clean the chips good and replace the thermal paste? A little trick I found is to take small pieces of a bank card/discount card and super glue them to the four corners of the chips. both cpu and gpu. when you remove the xclamps clean the chips until the have a mirror like finish. I used rubbing alcohol. Clean the heat syncs as well. Glue the plastic pieces to the corners of the chips. replace the syncs but dont tighten them all the way. While the console is disassembled plug in the av cable (to prevent all four red lights from coming on) plug in the power cord. Make sure the cooling fan is disconnected. Turn on the console. at this point you may still see the 3 red lights. This is o.k. Leave the console on for a while until the 3 red lights turn into 2 red lights. This means the console is overheating. Let it "cook" for 2 min. then tighten the screws. The overheat is needed to make the solder on the chips become plyable and alow the chips to be reset. you may still have a loose connection on the gpu causing the checkers.

Hi,You are experimenting the most common failures on sony sets:"Light engine problem" basically your tv uses 3 LCD chips that are like tiny screens that create the image and colors.When you get lines like what you are describing its affected by those chips.I will suggest to contact Sony,sometimes they are willing to repair it or give you a certain deal ,since they were in a law suit for faulty light engines.Good luck and God bless you!

I have an Vgn fs742w sony laptop, as of yesterday it wont start up. No noise no bios nothing.


Check your power supply, if the supply is good, then check the adaptor on the side of unit.
Do you have a power light when plugged in ?
Does the power supply have a light ?
Also you may try removing the battery and try to power up.

E73 on xbox 360


This problem was a MASSIVE defect in the Xbox 360. Your graphic chip has been burned to an extent that renders it useless. "The Red Ring of Death" can only be fixed by calling Microsoft, and having your Xbox sent in. But not to worry, because of the RR of D, Microsoft issued a 3 YEAR warrenty to all Xboxs with that problem, so your covered!

Good Luck!

Xbox playing up


Sorry to say, It has to be sent back

The problem with Xboxes are (the First Versions) is that they get too hot and the Solder under the chips rise causes the chips to be affected. As of right now, there is "no fix" for these. Alot of these xboxes are being sent right back to Microsoft to replace.


You might have to go through that back and forth process to receive a new one. but, even those are said to be refurbs.... of the first versions



good luck

Convergence problem ,Help Please


Something is not right here. Is there any possibility that you can get the circuit designation (Rxxx) of the resistors that were "incorrect"? I am not aware of anything like this that can cause the "memory to be erased". The only memory in that area would be the factory convergence settings which can be modified from the service menu. Please try to supply the resistor IDs and I'll check on this.

Thanks,
Dan
