My xbox 360 has 4 flashing red rings

hi, 4 flashing red lights is telling you their is a problem with the video lead, try switching the xbox off and unplug all the leads from back of xbox and also back of telly, then plug them back into the xbox making sure you push them in far enough, doing this removes static and should solve the problem, then plug it into the tv and give it a try.

if after doing the above it still dont work then the next thing to do would be to try a neighbours or a friends video lead just to make sure the problem is with the lead and not the hana chip inside the xbox,

you should find another lead will solve your problem if unplugging them doesnt fix it in the first place.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

My Ac Adapter i think is broken and my Xbox wont turn on but the AC adapter has a orange light that when i unplug it the orange light still does not go off.

Hi if the main brick has got an orange light then this is telling you the mains lead is working so try doing the following

1 unplug all leads from back of xbox and turn the power brick off at mains
2 plug the power lead back into the xbox, now when you push it in and it stops try pushing it in a little bit further usually they just dont push in far enough and it can be quite tight so make sure you are pushing it in hard enough,
3 now plug the video lead in and try switching it on,
keep an eye on the orange light whilst you switch it on if it comes on then it should continue to work if it dont come on watch the orange light and see it if changes color at the same time your switching it on, it will either flash green or red just once before going back to orange.

let me know what happens ok

My x-box won't turn on with everything plugged in

Hi check on the power brick that when you switch it on at the mains you get the orange light on the power brick, if you have this watch this light as you press the on button on the console if it turns red on the power brick then you have internal error on your xbox, if it stays orange then try taking out the power lead out of the back of the xbox 360 then push it back in sometimes if you dont get it pushed in far enough it wont work push it in as hard as you can then double check by pushing it back in then try pressing the on button.

if when you turn it on at mains you dont have any lights light up on the power brick then this could mean you either need to change the fuse in the plug or the power brick has over heated and needs replacing, if you do have an orange light on it then instead of pressing the on button on the xbox try pressing the dvd drive open button and see if that then switches it on.

let me know what light you get on the power brick and then ill do my best to assist you further.

most of the time its just because you dont push the power lead in the back of the xbox far enough, you can push it in thinking its in far enough when its not try pushing it in that little bit further and you should find it will come on.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

How do i hook my xbox up to my computer to get on xbox live?


just to elaborate on zombies post.....
Zombie is correct in what she says...but in 'Laymans' terms.........
you dont need to hook up your xbox to ur computer to get 'On Live' .
The easiest way is a direct 'Ethernet' lead (plugged into the back of ur 360....(dont worry....u cant put it in the wrong ethernet lead will only fit an ethernet slot)) & the other end into an empty Ethernet slot on your broadband suppliers router (the little box they sent you which is plugged into ur fone line)....there are usually '4' ethernet slots on most routers ! once the ethernet lead is plugged in just follow on screen instructions (xbox) for 'signing' up to 'Xbox Live' :-)

hope this is a little easier to understand ??

p.s. Dont get ripped off buying an ethernet lead if u havnt got one long enuf ! dont let the shops tell you ur better off with 'Gold' plated ones !! its rubbish !! u dont need gold plated !
the usual 'bay' shop (u know who i mean??) have numerous suppliers....u dont want to be paying more than £5 for at least a 5 metre one !

p.p.s dont bother with the wireless adapters !! there pants !

good luck :-)

I Bought my xbox in the U.S. and moved to Ireland and now when i plug in the power supply the power brick's light won't even turn on

Awesome, I'm 25% Irish and 25% Scottish. Ireland is a European Island and since it is European it has been known for the power sources to not match. I would suggest getting a conversion plug. This plug will make your Xbox's power supply and the wall outlet compatible with each other. Here's an example of what you would need:

Help!!!! xbox 360 probs

to tell the truth microsoft rushed so quick to beat the supposed ps3 launch date that didnt even match and left us waiting,that they overlooked so many issues due to hardware compatability and software and also most importantly build has been stated that microsoft dont even truely know how to repair as it could be 1 of around 1200 errors and issues that have been reported,and microsoft source most of the repairs to a german firm that do the job for them hence some people reporting 6 months waiting for return.
you can polish a turd
but you cant make it shine
hope they take the time to test properly next time and dont panic that the sony release date might be true.
