If you have the 3 red lights, it is overheating internally. If it is also not displaying then the GPU is frying you just need to stop the heat build up on the chips and you will be fine.

To do this send it in or fix it yourself

  • 2 SEGMENTS FLASHING RED - The console has overheated.
  • 3 SEGMENTS FLASHING RED - This is the somewhat infamous RROD (Red Ring Of Death).
  • 4 SEGMENTS FLASHING RED - AV cable not detected.

My 360 has 3 rings the rings are red and it wont turn on


Hello,

The three red lights mean that your XBOX360 is experiencing hardware failure. This is caused by overheating of your XBOX. Contact Microsoft and have them fix the problem. They have given free extended warranty for three red light problems. If you have bought your xbox360 within 3 years, you're in luck.. They will fix your console for free...

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!

With the TV on, when the xbox360 is turned on the tv screen flashes quickly and then no image on the tv screen. Sound works fine but no image. Several tv's were hooked up to verify it wasn't the tv.


Try a different cable. If it's not that, it could be overheating.

This is usually caused by a cold solder joint under the GPU, causing overheating, but your Xbox 360 doesn't recognize it yet, thus it has not displayed the 3RROD error (3 Red Ring of Death, red lights, etc.). It will give that error sometime in the future if it remains unfixed.

You have a few options:

1) Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} If it is within 3 years of its manufacture date (printed on the back of the console). You can call Microsoft and send it in, and they may replace it for you for free. I know they do this for 3RROD Xboxes, but they may not be as quick to replace it for free if it hasn't displayed the error yet.

2) Do the "X-Clamp" fix yourself following a guide from here or here.

3) Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} There are many repair websites that would be more than happy to have you send in your Xbox 360 to have it repaired.

Repair XBox 360


I can help with the overheating part. There are auxillary fans made to fit right on the XBOX. Fixing the 'Ring of Death" can be very complicated, depending on what all went wrong inside.

Xbox 360 2 rings


One red light signifies a major hardware failure or system error[4] , depending on which hardware failure or system error it is depends on how the problem can be fixed but in some cases there is no easy recovery and the console must be repaired or replaced. Two means the console is overheating and must be switched off and left to cool. Three, the infamous 'Red Ring of Death', means a general hardware failure and the console must be sent to Microsoft for repairs. All four red lights simply means that the console cannot detect its AV cable.
