Three red lights flashing on power up. no sound no picture. will open tray. green power light comes on at the power pack.av cables secure. ??? happens all the time can not use console.

his indicates a hardware failure inside the xbox. Your xbox 360 will need to be serviced by Microsoft. There are many internal problems that can cause the three red lights, also known as the "red ring of death" If you would like more information, wikipedia has a good explanation.

You can call 1-800-4MY-XBOX to start the repair process with Microsoft.

Original xbox continous blinking green light, no eject & loading

sounds like a bad cable between the console and the TV, the XBOX is notorious for having issues if the cable isn't the correct one (a Microsoft one) or damaged.

the flash green with nothing else happening can be a failed bios.. coma console variant. It's possible to fix it with a chip, but uneconomic considering the price of a working box these days. It can also be a failed ide controller or bad ram..whatever, it's normally a scrapper with these symptoms unless you have a good junkbox...
If you have an xbox that fell it's always worth changing over the dvd drives, as they can cause weird faults as well, (as mentioned above re: unknown disks) as the green flashing is the usual "loading disk" message.

Xbox power light blinks and freezes xbox

That flashing green light meens there is a problem with the power to you DVD drive. the power is being interrupted. ie, when you have power the welcome screen will load and when it doesn't it will shut off. you don't have continuos power. For example if you have the power cable unpluged and then plug it in with the power on the xbox will reboot. Check the wires and the port on the motherboard if all is ok you need a new drive.

Original xbox wont load and tray wont open

Ouch, horrible problem.
Try these:
1. hold the eject button for 30 seconds
2. leave the xbox off for a few minutes
3.try a new outlet[may not have enough power to do anything]
4.get a new power cord
Hopefully this helps
