Yes this is quite common it happens because the GPU and the CPU have overheated and the soldering has snapped off, the only way that you can fix it is to send it in or repair it yourself using a good guide

The G.P.U. cause the board to warp fractions of a millimeter
when it repeatedly bows up then down when cool finely one or
many of the solder balls under the G.P.U. are literally pulled
right of the P.C. board .this is due to the fact that the board
is to thin to resist thermal expansion and the solder becomes
brittle and with repeated flexing will fail.


Ok the question is do you want a quick fix X clamp mod
that will last 1-6 months

Or have the G.P.U. re-flowed back to the board and
then securely clamp, that will yield a more durable
repair

If you if you need more info just comment and
ill respond .

My xbox 360 elite has 1 red flashing light and the screen is all weird whats happening???


hat's an indicator of a hardware problem with the console connection to one of the parts connected to it as the hard drive or cables.

so first disconnest all wires, wait a couple minutes and plug everything back in and turn it on. if its still red then its a HDD issue. take the HDD out and turn the 360 back on. if it works then you just need a new HDD,.

and if that doesnt work, then its just a system error and youll need a new one.

Xbox 360 elite 1 red light


When you get any of these messages appearing on your screen with one red light flashing on the ROL of your Xbox 360 console that's an indicator of a hardware problem with the console connection to one of the parts connected to it as the hard drive or cables.
So, first disconnect all power and AV cables from the back of your Xbox 360 console and also unplug the power cord from the wall socket, wait for a minute then reconnect them all back and try to turn on your Xbox 360 console once more.
If that doesn't work, it seems then to be a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so turn off the console again and remove the hard drive then turn on your Xbox 360 console without the hard drive, supposed then to work fine, it might be an intermittent issue and when you reconnect the hard drive your Xbox 360 will work fine all after, or it will just work fine without the hard drive so it will be then definitely a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so call Xbox 360 customer support to exchange the hard drive for you.
The number for Microsoft is usually listed on the back of any game manual.

I hope I was able to fixya problem, and Happy Gaming!

3 blinking redlights..just black screen


Hi,
it,s worth a look at the xbox forums on the internet regarding this.
dependant on how many red lights you have, the console has overheated. or you have a A/V output fault.
Look on the xbox 360 forums sites for further Information.
