Depends on how many red lights are flashing...

if you have 3 flashing red lights your machine has a hardware failure which means unfortuanatly your beloved is dead. in which case take it back to the shop and demand a new one. this is a very common problem.

if its only one red light the problem is your av/component cables are not connected correctly....good luck

hi, it sounds like a case for microsoft. but a word of advice. you can upgrade your warranty first if it has run then phone them up a week or two later to say your system has developed a fault but i didnt tell you this. ha

this might be a hardware failure. try turning it off then back, or try keeping a fan on it when you play on and if that doesn't work call 1800myxbox there you'll find step by step instructions to send it down to texas and get it fixed. if that happens three times you will recieve a brand new xbox 360 that has that problem fixed. also keep in mind to keep your hard drive before you send it to be fixed. i really hope this helps with your problem
-good luck

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.

When I turned on my system, it had system error contact xbox customer support. There is a red light flashing on the bottom right, around the power button. I don't know what to do. Please help.


Some of us suddenly when we turn on our Xbox 360 console one day we got one red light flashes on the ROL (Ring of Light) around the Xbox 360 power button, and we got an Error message appearing on the TV screen "System error" also might occur with any error code like E66, E67, E68, E71, E74 or E77, all the same.
systemerrore74.jpg
When you get any of these messages appearing on your screen with one red light flashing on the ROL of your Xbox 360 console that's an indicator of a hardware problem with the console connection to one of the parts connected to it as the hard drive or cables.

oneredlight.jpg
So, first disconnect all power and AV cables from the back of your Xbox 360 console and also unplug the power cord from the wall socket, wait for a minute then reconnect them all back and try to turn on your Xbox 360 console once more.

If that doesn't work, it seems then to be a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so turn off the console again and remove the hard drive then turn on your Xbox 360 console without the hard drive, supposed then to work fine, it might be an intermittent issue and when you reconnect the hard drive your Xbox 360 will work fine all after, or it will just work fine without the hard drive so it will be then definitely a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so call Xbox 360 customer support to exchange the hard drive for you.

The Xbox 360 console might even keep giving you the same error code even after you remove the hard drive so it will then appear to be a fault with your Xbox 360 console not the hard drive & also in a case like this we need to contact Xbox 360 customer support to exchange the console.

Red flashing light and having a code E73


When turning on the Xbox 360, a red light would be flashing at the fouth section of the Ring of Light. You should then recieve a ghost screen indicating an error E 73.
You recieve a screen error E 73 and section 4 of the RoL flashing red. This type of error was caused by a General Hardware Error relating to the Ethernet Port not functioning correctly or became faulty and unable to operate even with or without an Ethernet Cable connected to this port. The secondary code would be identified as 1021 for faulty ethernet port. I believe that there is no fix at the moment. If you encounter this error, I would suggest call 1-800-4MY-XBOX or visit www.xbox.com/support
The specific type of hardware error can be determined by these hidden codes:
0001, 0002, 0003, 0010, 0011, 0012, 0013, 0020, 0021,0022, 0023, 0030, 0031, 0032, 0033, 0100, 0101, 0102, 0103, 0110, 0200, 0203, 1000,1001, 1002, 1003, 1010, 1011, 1012, 1013, 1020, 1021, 1022, 1023, 1030, 1031,1032, 1033, 1100, 1444 and up
More information about these codes and errors, visit this webpage:

  • Note: There is known to be a temporary fix for this problem but is not recommended if the device still has available warranty on it. Doing so will avoid it's warranty, thus for you will pay $100 if sent for repair.
The Sticks Method:
  • Requirements: Xbox 360 (Power Cable and Composite/Component/HDMI Cable), two sticks (Like toothpicks, swabs)
1.) Turn off your Xbox 360 and unplug everthing.
2.) Get two sticks (Something like toothpicks or something that could fit in the back of the Xbox 360.
3.) Insert each stick to jam the two fans at the back of the Xbox 360 to prevent it from spinning.
4.) Plug back cables (Power and Cable connecting to TV; the RRoD will not appear unless the cable to the TV is connected).
5.) When RRoD appears (One Red Light), wait for about 10 to 15 minutes or maybe less for the Xbox 360 to overheat.
6.) At this point, you should get two red lights (Resembles Overheating Error) so remove the two sticks so that the fans will spin in an increased speed. After a few seconds, the Xbox 360 will turn off to cool down (RRoD will still appear).
7.) Unplug only the cable connected to the TV. You can unplug the power cord if you want to. Then let it cool for about 30 minutes or so (Feel the Xbox 360 if it's cool or still warm)
8.) Replug all wires and turn your Xbox 360 on.
The Xbox 360 should now be able to boot to your Xbox Dashboard. I don't know how this fix works but it's only temporary. Note that doing this continually would cause it to now work even if you try to redo this fix again and again. Doing so would make other hardware components to fail permanently such as the GPU for example.

If this first temporary fix did not work, do the second method: The Towel Trick. You can find the tutorials in Youtube. Again, this is not recommended if you have warranty left and never do this continually. Your Xbox 360 would completely and permanently fail after that. if it doesnt help after all this....I suggest sending it to Microsoft for repairs

Turn on unit until the red light flashes and the error code(E 73) shows up on the screen.

Turn off console when this happens(unplug all cords from console) and turn the system back on.

Xbox 1 flashing red light and e73 system error


e73 is an input/output error. Hopefully you are still under warranty. Contact Microsoft at Toll free: (800) 4MY-XBOX or (800) 469-9269. If you are outside of your warranty period, I believe they will still repair it for $99
