The red ring of death


This has happened to me with 2 consoles so I know this problem well... the sad thing is there is nothing you can do to fix it. The red ring of death means it's a hard drive error, Microsoft has made it so that only they can fix or replace harddrives. Call the Microsoft hotline and they will tell you where to bring it to get it fixed. For me they just gave me a brand new one even though the warranty had expired, but this was several years ago and I live in Hong Kong so it's probably different in the US.

2 rings of death only when a play a video game. I had 3 red rings, then I did an x-clamp fix , cleaned GPU and CPU and applied arctic sliver to the xbox. When I start up my xbox it show no red...


Hello there

From what you have said it sounds like you have the RROD - 2 RED RINGS ERROR

The main causes are Hardware failure, overheating or wear & tear.

You may need to perform simple maintenance, clean or in some cases adjust settings.

To get the best advice on where to start I recommend a GOOD REPAIR GUIDE, From this you can fix the problem at home and avoid any large repair bills. Its easier than it sounds when you have help from the guide.

I used Gamer Fix to get the best guides

The other solution would be to send the console off to its manufacturer, This is free if your still in warranty. If your console is out of warranty then the usual price of repair is $150

I am Glad I could help and You can help others by rating this Post or leaving a comment.
Many thanks

My game plays for a min then frezers and gives me the 3 red rings


the red rings can be fixed in 2 different ways.
1) take all cords out except power corad and wrap it in thick DRY towl. then turn it on and let it overheat, this works 85-95% of the time.
2) send it in the console(you need the reciept)
and get it fixed/replaced.

NOTE:you can try both, if 1 doesnt work you can always do 2

I have 2 red rings and its cooled down what do i do?


this signals hardware failure, and you need to call microsoft and have them send you a box to ship the 360 in so they can fix it. if it's still under warranty, it should be free.

its very possible your xbox is having overheating problems. I had the same issue with mine, and i had to send it back to microsoft 2 different times, but after that it worked fine. I would try sending it back to microsoft, and see what happens from there.
