Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Xbox 360 Okay, I know..I know. I bought an Xbox 360 from Ebay. Brand new. Opened it. 3 red lights! I was hoping to have it for kids for xmas. Now it looks like i have to contact Microsoft to get it fixed. Sticker on machine and box say June 2007 so it is new for sure. But how do i go about getting it fixed if I do not have a receipt from a store? The guy I bought it from actually lives in my town and had 7 others for sale. Ad said they worked. He is gone for xmas so i can't get a trade or refund right now. And I hear it takes like forever to get it back from Microsoft. Is this true. What is my best solution for this problem? I paid $200 for it. Also, one the 3 red lights are fixed, what is to stop it from overheating in a few weeks like so many others did after they fixed the red light problems? Please help. Ironically, my old Xbox original unit still works great after all of these years! LOL. Go figure! linnfaries@yahoo.com

My Xbox 360 has quite a history with the 3 red lights. First time I got the lights i bought and fixed the x-clamps and my xbox worked for several months before it got the lights again. I re-opened my...


I'd say it was the CPU/GPU chips, however, you could try reapplying the paste to see if that fixes it, however, after that amount of fixes, i think it would be better to get a new 360, since the faulty rate is much lower on the new models.

Alright, lets fix this!
 Xbox 360 power supply light is orange or yellow.
Usually when the Xbox 360 power supply light is orange it's on standby so there is no problem with your Xbox 360 console but the power supply can't supply it with power !

First you have to try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console & unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet also unplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord, wait for a minute then reconnect it all back , also try it on another wall outlet without any extension cords at all.
If it's still doing the same it will be definitely a fault with the Xbox 360 power supply.
So, in this case please contact Xbox 360 customer support to fulfill the Xbox 360 power supply.

Xbox 360 power supply light is red.
There is something wrong with the Xbox 360 power supply connection so try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console & unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet also unplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord, wait for minute then reconnect it all back , also try it on another wall outlet without any extension cord at all.

If it's still red that would be for sure a fault with the Xbox 360 power supply .
So, then contact Xbox 360 customer support to fulfill your Xbox 360 power supply .



You can also find replacement power cords many places online. See if you can get your hands on another cord and try that to see if its the current power cord.
Hope this helps you out! Please don't forget to rate :)

RED lights flashing


This is going to sound like a very strange solution, but it worked for me, twice. My xbox 360 gave me the red ring of death once, and in my despair I asked a few friends about anything they can think of, and one suggested letting it run for 10 minutes while wrapped in a towel, or blanket. By that point I was desperate enough to try it (I had bought a refurbished one, so it wasn't under warranty anymore), and lo and behold, my xbox 360 is as good as new. Basically what you're doing is shocking the system into working via overheating... I know that doesn't make much sense, but, like I said before, it worked twice for me. Hope this helps!
