I resently got new screws and washers and cleaned up the CPU and GPU and put new thermal paste on them. I put my xbox 360 back together and turn the power on and it works for like maybe 2 minutes then just...

2 red lights denotes a heating issue. The CPU or GPU could be getting too hot. Another issue could be that the heat sinks are not making good enough contact with the CPU/GPU. Since you said you put washers onto the xbox, try tightening the screws a half turn each, and see if that solves it. If it doesn't, you may need to reapply the thermal paste and try again.

Red Ring of Death: Red Flashing XBOX 360 Lights Explained Common Xbox 360 Red Ring Errors The XBOX has a reported 54.2% failure rate which makes the XBOX 360 gaming consoles' worst "lemon" to date. If you find yourself with the red flashing lights error, --> lg.php?category_id=15&content_type=article&content_type_id=2663399&key_page=682482001924178892&site_id=1&bannerid=11791&campaignid=3153&zoneid=23&loc=1& follow this guide to try and pinpoint the problem with your XBOX 360.

1 Red Ring = Serious Hardware Failure
I f your XBOX 360 has a 1 red flashing light error, you're more than likely in big trouble. The 1 flashing red ring of light can be due to GPU or CPU failure, RAM overheating, a DVD drive error, or some serious problem with your Xbox 360's internal components. The most common 1 flashing red ring lights error is the E74 error. The E74 error is no easy fix for the Xbox 360 and usually has to be repaired by the manufacturer [though some have managed to repair it with the heat gun trick - but be careful]

2 Red Rings = Overheating
Mostly all red flashing lights on the Xbox 360 rings are due to overheating in some way or other, but the 2 red rings singles out overheating as the main issue. When doing the X-Clamp fix the 2 red rings are required to fix the Xbox 360 by overheating the CPU. If you get this Xbox 360 error without doing the X-Clamp fix, you probably just need to let your Xbox 360 cool down for a few hours. Make sure that all vents aren't blocked off and that your Xbox fans are working properly in order to repair this problem.

3 Red Rings = Basic Hardware Failure
The most common error on the Xbox 360 is the 3 red rings - also known as the Red Rings of Death (RRoD). This flashing lights problem is the main cause of Xbox 360's 54.2% failure rate. The 3 red flashing lights can be due to lots of different errors but is mainly due to the X-Clamps in your Xbox 360 and overheating. Fortunately, lots of people were able to fix this issue using the X-Clamp and heat gun fix. Follow this list of error codes to find out the real issue with the 3 red rings because there are quite a few of them.

5) GPU And CPU Cleaning.
Next step is to clean GPU (graphic processing unit) and CPU (central processing unit) If you do this step right it will help to stop xbox 360 freezing. This is very important and critical step so just make sure you do it right.


6) Appling Arctic Silver

Now you have to apply arctic silver thermal compound gently over GPU.
You will get this arctic silver thermal compound in any computer hardware shop for $1-$2.


Set it for 15 to 20 minutes then place 2 nylon washers on each screw on the heat sink then place the screws back in motherboard then add two more nylon washers to screws.


Place the heat sink on the peak of screws then push them down slight, finally screw them up. Try to make it reasonably tight.

Get everything back together and see everything is fitted properly. Now, Turn your Xbox 360 on.

I have an xbox 360 and i have the three red lights error and the secondary code is 0020. i have done the x-clamp fix. and i know i am doing something wrong in this fix please please help me.

0020 is open connection under the G.P.U. 90% of the time.
If you removed the heatsink studs and the x clamp then screw down
the G.P.U.'s heat sink followed by a forced over heating of the G.P.U.

Then you did nothing wrong as far as the stander procedure goes.

The connections under the G.P.U. have to much gaping to be
compressed back the pads.

Your second option is to have the G.P.U. re flowed with
proper clamping to insure it stays connected .
This will give the longest lasting repair .

The x-clamp mod repair last 1-3 months on average
and it will warp the board under the G.P.U. and
becomes very difficult to repair after that .

Just something to think about.
if you have any questions feel free to ask

We have three flashing rings around the power. We unplugged the console and restarted. Now the console wont turn on?

This is called the RROD. Their is a problem with you cpu/gpu. Most common fix is called the x-clamp and thermal paste fix. The best place to trouble shoot this problem is on xbox-experts they have a walk through, where you will put in how many lights and what the secondary code is. Then it will tell you what fixes to try and what order to do them hope this helps you.

Secondary error code 0020 fix

Some consoles just aren't fixable. It's not common, but does happen. This is why I recommend only having a repair done by an experienced professional.

I have two red lights flashing on x box 360 how do i or can i fix it

It is overheating, or atleast it thinks it is.
Make sure it is getting good ventilation (At least 12 inches in the back and 3-4 on each side)
The 3 things that overheat in a 360 that trigger those lights are the CPU, GPU, and RAM.
When you turn on the console, and the 2 lights start blinking do this...
Hold down the sync button and press the eject button, it should blink a certain number of lights rapidly. Continue to hold the sync button and each press of the eject button moves to the next number of a code. After 4 presses total, you should have a 4 digit code and be back on the regular speed blinking of the 2 lights.
And here is what they mean (4 lights = 0)
0011- CPU is overheating 0012- GPU is overheating 0013- RAM is overheating or faulty (this can be the tricky one)
For the CPU and GPU, a simple X clamp fix will cure them. Sometime simply putting pressure on the RAM corrects it's issue... sometimes. But sometimes it can be a bad solder under the RAM or just faulty RAM, in which case I would have an expert repair it.

I have the 0102 code on my Xbox 360 can this be fixed and how?

The XBox error code 0102, is an error in the digital backbone or the CPU or GPU or RAM. This error is generally caused by a cold solder connection between the main board and the GPU. I would recommend calling microsoft about fixing it.
