The console will not load game

When I power on the X-box360, the light on the "on" button turns red and the game will not load or register on the television screen. What could be the problem?

This is called a partial red ring of death, depending on what section of the ring is lit up it could mean different things. after power up on the console a black page with writing should appear and it should have a E.. code at the bottom. if this does not appear and you just get a black screen i suggest that it is somthing to do with the cable connecting the back of your xbox to your TV or the ports the wire goes into, USE THIS WEBSITE TO RECOGNISE WHAT AREA OF PROBLEM YOU HAVE BEFORE BUYING ANY PARTS. i is more than likely going to mean a length phone call to a xbox call centre "support" or if it is a recent purchase the shop you brought it from should be more than happy to replace it for you . hope i helped and i know i ramble on :D

Yes of coarse 1 red 3 red no video freezing ....
G.P.U. has fractured connection and is in need
of a re-flow procedure.This will remedy most problems
for 3-9mounths , or you can do what's called an X clamp
mod this will get your unit running for 1-3 mouth .
The re-flow cost about 70.00-80.00 and will void
the warranty if you still have one.

any questions? just ask.

My x-box360 won't work the red light comes on but


OK, I'm assuming your console has 3 flashing red lights, if that is the case there's not much you can do for the Xbox, 3 flashing red lights is a problem with the mother board in your console, now there is a temporary fix you could perform your self but that doesn't always work, its a 50/50 chance, personally id play it safe on this one and check to see if your warranty is still good, if so all you have to do is contact Microsoft and explain to them about your red lights, they'll then ask you to plug out everything and plug it back in, when that fails to work they will send you out tags in your e-mail, once you receive the tags stick them to the box that contains your console and await collection. It usually takes up to 5-7 weeks before your u get your console back.

My ps3 won't load the discs...


Hi, if it wont load your icons and freezes before your xmb, put it into safemode and try restoring the filing system. to get it into safemode...
hold down the power button while the console is in standby. the light will go from red to green.it will beep once flash green beep again, and then beep a third time. after the third beep the light will turn red.

once the light is red, take your finger off the power button and place it back on the power button. the light will go from red to green, beep once flash and then beep twice quickly. after it does the double beep, take your finge roff. the light will stay green and you'll get a screen asking you to connect the controller.

after connecting the controller, try option 3, or whichever option is restore filing system. this can possibly correct media loading and will 95% of the time fix the console when it freezes before loading up your icons(the xmb)

Thanks and take

X box360 flashing red light


Where is the flashing light? If it is at the 3rd position (bottom right) only, then the screen should say E68 error. If this is true, turn off the system, take off the harddrive, put the harddrive back on and turn the system back on. This happens to mine frequently. If its 3 of the lights, then you are out of luck my friend. Red Ring of Death...

2 red lights as soon as i turn it on then its froze


this is a all to common problem for the x-box360..try removing the external hard drive and repower the unit..if red lights still exits..then you have a mother board problem and it will have to be sent to repair..do not try the quick fix schemes on several hacked web sites..this will only destroy the main pcb

Red light on my xbox 360


Turn console of, hold sync button down wich is the small white button next memory card slots, while holding turn on console and wait till it boots. If this does not work go to system blade, select memory, press y on the HD symbol, press xx left bumper right bumper xx, select yes. This will restart your console from scratch though all profiles and saved data will be lost, but it will clear any corupt data.
