Were is the reset button to completely whipe the xbox because it keeps saying that we need to re put the disck and we did but it didnt work

There is no reset button unfortunetly. The best thing you can do is go into the settings and tell it to rreset to factory defaults. And if you asking for a reset button because the console wont shut off, them just unplug the power cord.

Xbox consol has red ring only 3 lines not full ring

This could be a mjor problem.. Kindly Check this picture here for reference..

Or, you could try doing there simple troubleshooting steps:

  1. Restart the console.
  2. If this did not work, there could be a loose cord or cable. First, any cables and power cords that can be removed should be disconnected. Unplug the power cable from the wall plug. Firmly reattach all cables and cords back into the console. Now connect up the power and turn on the console.
  3. If the above step didn't work, then try turning off the console, unplugging the power and then disconnecting the hard drive. Now plug into the power and turn the console back on. If console does not show the three red lights error, turn it off and disconnect the power cord from the wall. Finally, reconnect the hard drive, plug in the power, and turn on the console.
  4. If you are using a defective surge protector, plug strip, or extension cord, your xbox may not be getting adequate power. Try plugging the power brick directly into the wall. This sort of thing happens more often than you might think. My DSL connection used to be very unreliable until I bypassed my surge protector and plugged my modem directly into the wall. I should have done this in the first place rather than making a lot of angry (and useless) phone calls to my internet service provider.
  5. If you think that your machine has overheated, then turn it off and let it cool down. Ensure that the cooling vents are not blocked in any way and keep your Xbox 360 in a ventilated and open area.

    Do not place near it any sources of heat. There are obvious sources like heaters and radiators and such. But less obvious sources include the electrical devices that are sitting on top or beneath your xbox.

    Try removing any dust buildup inside the machine.

    Cool off your console with a small fan.

    Don't forget to keep the power brick cool, so keep it off of shaggy carpeting. Better still, place it on an elevated surface. You can even hang the power brick by its cord off of a hook.

    Keep the rear of the console clear. Don't push it up against a wall and keep any debris away. This includes not allowing any cords and cables to get all bunched up in this area.

    Don't do any all day gaming marathons. Limit your gaming to just a few hours, then turn it off and let it cool down for a while. The warmer the room temperature is the shorter your playing time should be.
if all else fails, consider of having your XBOX repaired by a local tech or the nearest XBOX service center. this could be a little expensive but a quicker option..

1) The Xbox was unswitched and then turned on again, there is now no power to the X Box at all. 2) One of the handset connections is lose as well and a part seems to be missing.

The (old) xbox should boot up without any controllers and without any disc in the drive. If you get no lights at all on on the front panel, check the power cord to be sure it's connected.

Some original xboxes had a circuit breaker in the power cord. The plug is large and has a yellow and red button on it. If this is present, check to see if the breaker needs to be reset. If it keeps blowing, then your power supply needs to be replaced.

If this is an xbox 360, then you entered your product incorrectly. You may want to open a new request here.
