3 red rings is very common. it means a hardware failur of some sort, most cause of this is from a cold solder connection on the graphics chip inside. if you have had the unit less than 3 years, MS will still warranty it. if its older than 3 years, then unfortunatly your out of luck, i have 2 sitting here in front of me with the same issue.

Part of the outer ring is coloured red and the game wont work


Yikes! red ring is not good, if the whole ring is red you need to check your AV cables, three sections is the Red Ring of Death and you need to send your Xbox in for repairs(http://support.xbox.com/en-us/pages/xbox-360/troubleshoot/flashinglights.aspx). Off the top of my head I can't remember what the two or one red sections mean, I do know their not as serious as the three. my girlfriends freezes from time to time and red rings, but when we restart her system it all goes away (sometimes it still jams at the Xbox load screen)

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&referer=http%3a%2f%2fwww.associatedcontent.com%2farticle%2f2663399%2fred_ring_of_death_red_flashing_xbox.html%3fcontent_type%3darticle%26content_type_id%3d2663399&cb=8da55f49a0 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.

I HAVE THE MERLIN PHONE SYSTEM 820D2 I WOULD LIKE TO SILENCE CERTAIN NUMBERS FROM RINGING. HOW DO I DO THAT?


Now that's an oldie :-) I have the instructions squirreled away right here

Here's how to program line ringing:

• go to the voice terminal whose line ringing you want to program

• slide T/P switch toward you

• touch a line button (note red lights)

• touch the button again until correct code appears:

RED ON = Ring

RED FLASH = Delayed Ring

RED OFF = No Ring

• repeat this procedure for each line

• return T/P switch to center position.

What happens when you get red rings


it depends on how many red rings you have but if you have 3 red rings or the ring of death it only means that you need to call xbox for the warranty of the console

When i play xboxlive it will freez then the screen will be green or red then i have to turn my xbox help


If this is what happens each time you use your your console, it might be broken. Does it have any red rings around the console's display? If that's the case, check out these links by Microsoft corresponding to the amount of red rings on your console:
1 red ring
2 red rings
3 red rings
4 red rings

They extended the warranty to three years from the purchase date for the three rings. Give them a call at 1-800-4MYXBOX and see if they can't help solve your problem. Hopefully you're still under warranty. Good Luck!

My xbox 360 freezes after being on for a couple of minutes. How do i stop this


If it freezes and then the next time you turn it on has red lights on the console display check out the corresponding Microsoft articles for the number of red rings on the display. They appear in quadrants on it.
1 red ring
2 red rings
3 red rings
4 red rings

If you do not have any rings, your console may just be overheating. Give it a while to cool down and if that doesn't work, give Microsoft a call: 1-800-4MYXBOX. Good Luck!

Four red rings on my xbox

2 red rings after the xclamp fix


Yesh...4 red lights means you didn't have the component or hdmi pluged into the system and tv. 3 lights means there is some soldering problem in your 360. 2 lights means your 360 is overheated. For the 2 lights normally you can fix that with letting it cool for a while and give it some room around the system to run cooler. However by using the towel trick you you caused the soldering to run and now it's probibly miss soldered. I recommend you ship to Microsoft or sell it.
