Hi,

The two red lights on the Xbox, also known as the "red lights of death!" are a symptom of the Graphics processor unit (GPU) overheating and not making correct contact with the printed circuit board.

There are a number of guides on the Internet that suggest they can fix the issue; however in practice what is normally required is hwat is termed 'reballing'. In this process the GPU is desoldered from the PCB using specialist equipment and then resoldered. This uses specialist equipment and can not be attempted with a normal soldering iron.

The best course of action is to initially contact Microsoft to determine if it would be covered under their extended warranty programme. The following URL refers to the 3 red lights, but I would check anyway http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/nxe/kb.aspx?ID=969905&lcid=1033&category=hardware

Failing that, there are a number of people that offer xbox repair services, not knowing exactly where you are located I can't point you at one in particular. I would google "xbox repair <location>" and check that the company is reputable. If you can physically take the 360 into the company that is even better.

Hope this helps

Two red lights mean the CPU is overheating. Make sure the fans are running in the back of the XBOX when it is on. If they are running, make sure the box is in an open space where it can get plenty of air flow. If these do not fix the problem, you have one of many junk boxes. You can send it back to microsoft to be repaired.

You have a total of 4 lights, which ones are lit up tell you what the problem is.

There are only a very few 360 red light problems that can be fixed by you, you generally have to send the unit in to Microsoft to have it repaired. About a year ago, Microsoft extended the warranty period of their 360's for red light issues...so there is a high possibility you are still covered.

If you comment on what exact lights are lighting up and their behavior (blinking/steady), I can help point you in a more specific direction to troubleshooting it. You can also contact Microsoft with that same info and they help you troubleshoot also.

Hope this helps.

You could try re-seating the hard drive to see if comes back. Note most configurations on this is set to RAID 1 or 5. Double check before removing drive.

The drive will need to be replaced if the red light comes back (after a few days).

Green ligth comes on and then gose off, proceed by red ligth flashing.


Hi:
If you count the number of times the red light blinks before pausing and starts to cycle over again. This is the error code the unit is producing. Also if its been a while since you replaced the lamp then it may be time for a new one. Check the lamp housing and pull out the lamp it may be shattered. You can find the lamp area and installing instructions using you onwers manual.
