Three flashing red lights around the Xbox 360 power button (nicknamed the "Red Ring of Death"), 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.

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.


Distinct from the General Hardware Failure is a similar-looking error warning where four red lights appear, in which case the console does not detect an AV cable is plugged in. The four lights can sometimes also be seen when power surges or very brief power outages occur while the console is running, in which the console needs to be unplugged and plugged back in again to reset the error. Two red lights appear when the system is overheated.

When the Xbox 360 is turned on the xbox does not work. It has 3 red ligghts instead of the outer circle instead of it turning green it turns red.


Hello meadormitche,

Sadly what you have on your console is the sign that irreparable damage has been done to your Xbox 360 console. The only way to fix it is by either contacting tech support or replacing the system.

There are alternative ways by contacting third parties to replace the damaged parts but this void the warranty and it goes agaisnt the Terms of Service.

Sorry about the inconvinience.

It freezes when you turn it on and shuts off. and when you try to turn it back on, instead of the green ring a red ring surrounds the xbox symbol.


It sounds like the RROD. If your XBOX360 is still under warranty, you can call Microsoft and they'll fix it. If not, you can either ship your XBOX off to be fixed by Microsoft or another company or try fixing it yourself. I fixed my red ring of death with a clamp fix (http://www.llamma.com/xbox360/repair/ring_of_light_x-clamp_fix.htm)
