Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

2 Answers

Loss of power followed by two red lights intermittently During gameplay my console losses power. I lose all unsaved game data and receive two red lights on the front of my console. While this whole thing is happening I hear a clicking sound coming from my circuit breakers. Every time this happens I check the circuit breakers and nothing is tripped. I have reset all of the breakers twice, but this does not seem to help. Also, this whole process locks up my console and will not let me turn it off!!! The only way to get it off is to unplug the power pack. I know this can't be good, please help!!

2 red lights is actually overheating so give it a good dust out and if that does not work you will have to repair it yourself or send it in for repairs

My psp's start button is notm working properly. It's intermittent though


This can happen after a long period of inactivity. Please do the following:

Press it a couple of times at different angles, as you would during gameplay (if it were one of the directional buttons or joystick) it should work fine.

How can I fix "Red ring of death" on my XBox 360


Three flashing red lights around the Xbox 360 power button (nicknamed the "Red Ring of Death" or "Red Lights of Death" or "Red Ring of Doom"), instead of the one to four green lights indicating normal operation, represent an internal problem that requires service. Warning signs may include freeze-ups, graphical problems in the middle of gameplay, such as checkerboard or pinstripe patterns on the screen, and sound errors, and the console only responds to pressing the power button to turn it off. These events may happen once or several times until the hardware failure occurs, or not at all. If the console freezes occasionally, the error will not necessarily follow. The technical problems seem to affect some generations of consoles more than others. e.g. Xbox 360 60GB This error code is usually caused by failure of one or more hardware components, although it can indicate that the console is not receiving enough power from the power supply, which can either be due to a faulty power supply or if the power supply cable is not fully inserted into the console. The 3 flashing lights can also be caused by power surges; if the console is connected to an outlet that receives a power surge, it may have a failure and the 3 lights will appear as long as the console is plugged into the outlet. Turning off the console, unplugging all power cables and plugging them back in, and restarting the console will fix the issue in this case. hope this helps

2004 RX 330: intermittent power steering loss, hard to turn, so...


I think you may have a problem with your electric assisted power steering motor. Is the loss in power only when your are making sharp turns to the right or left?
Do you hear any load noises or squeling sounds?
You should have it inspected, Don't want you to lose control while driving.

360 Freezes during gameplay


try to keep the box in a spot where it and the power brick can stay cool.... same thing happened to my first box eventually it got the rings of death like so many other xboxs out there... so if keeping it well aired dont work you need to ring micro soft and have it sent off for repairs before it suffers a system failure
