For most consoles only the GPU x-clamp needs to be replaced

SOURCE: 3 red rings

yes over heating best to go microsoft care point or support online at x-box site and see what your nearest service point. -my self ,i use to fix two fans one to increase the cooling system and one to brought out the heat, all most the solution care about increase the cooling factor, but they always ignoring that the heat should be go out. by this you can play most of games and operate your x-box as long you want . -some of x-box board components might affected by been heated and cooling in normal operating so this case you should reflow the GPU and CPU. Nothing safe than use jovy RE-7500 to make this process .

SOURCE: x box 360 red ring of death costless solution

You don't need any money mate. Microsoft recently extended their warranty to 3 years for the three red lights problem. all you have to do is get in touch with microsoft and tell them about the three red lights, and they should either repair your X Box or they will replace it with a new one.
Good luck mate

SOURCE: my xbox360 has a red ring around it how do i fix

Your Xbox overheated. Contact Xbox. There may be a charge if it is not under warranty. They will send you a pre-paid shipping box. Slide your box in, take it to the post office, and wait 2-6 weeks for a new one(keep your hard drive).

SOURCE: one flashing red light on xbox360 ( not red ring)

The specific type of hardware failure can be determined by a "hidden" error code
Turn the xbox 360 on, and wait till the 3 red lights are flashing.
Press and hold the sync up button (the small white one), while holding that button press the eject button.
The LEDs will now blink the first number in the code (as described below).
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the second number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the third number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the forth number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will go back to the 3 red flashing lights.
You should be able to determine the difference between the 3 flashing lights and the error code lights by the rate in which they flash.
Here is how you interpret the LEDs to get the code number:
All four lights flashing - 0
One light flashing - 1
Two Lights flashing - 2
Three lights flashing - 3

Once you get this code, go to: http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=484726
To get the reason for the code.

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.

It freezes when you turn it on and shuts off. and when you try to turn it back on, instead of the green ring a red ring surrounds the xbox symbol.


It sounds like the RROD. If your XBOX360 is still under warranty, you can call Microsoft and they'll fix it. If not, you can either ship your XBOX off to be fixed by Microsoft or another company or try fixing it yourself. I fixed my red ring of death with a clamp fix (http://www.llamma.com/xbox360/repair/ring_of_light_x-clamp_fix.htm)

Red lights is normally the red light of doom, you will need to send it in to get it fixed or you can fix it yourself using a good guide to fix it and stop the heat build up.

Red rings


Depending on how many you have it means different things:

1 red light - scaler chip E74

2 red lights - overheating

3 red lights GPU and CPU have burnt out

4 red lights - the AV cable is not in correctly

You can fix all of these errors yourself or you can send it in to have it repaired

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.

Red rings


Unfortunatly you have found the "red rings of death" One of my friends had the same problem and he couldnt find any way to fix it, however he let his xbox sit for about a week then plugged it back in and it worked just fine so...I don't know exactly how to fix it but if you want to try to just let it sit it has worked for me. I recomend calling Microsoft and seeing if they will do anything about it.
