There is no fix for this. I had it and there was no solution. You need to call 1-800-4my-xbox and say you have the 3 red flashing lights. The warrenty service for all xbox's was extended so they will take care of it for free in about 2-4 weeks.

Unfortunatly you have found the "red rings of death" One of my friends had the same problem and he couldnt find any way to fix it, however he let his xbox sit for about a week then plugged it back in and it worked just fine so...I don't know exactly how to fix it but if you want to try to just let it sit it has worked for me. I recomend calling Microsoft and seeing if they will do anything about it.

My xbox light turned red and i dont know what to do cause it wont let me play


Red Ring of Death.

Try restarting your 360 a couple times using various methods (eg. unplugging wires, turning it off manually/with controller, etc.).
If that doesn't work, you'll have to send it to get fixed. If your 360 still has a warranty it's free, otherwise it's about $100.

Image freezes in the middle of play , It does not relate to any one game and the time between freeze ups seems eratic. If you turn the power off then back on the game will start again but it will stop...


This usually means your GPU is on the fritz. You are most likely days away from the Red Ring of Death. Once you get the Red Ring of Death, you should send it to Microsoft or Find an online repair service.

Sound of game playing but no picture


Do the following at your own risk

First take off hard drive on the 360. Then plug it to the tv not with HDTV (use the red, yellow and white make sure it is on tv not HDTV) i only say this because i didn't use the HDTV setting to fix it. then plug it into the wall with the 360 laying down not up and down and turn it on. (no picture but sound) with the 360 on take 1 towel folded it long ways and wrap it around 360 from back to front (make sure you cover the fans in the back to make it over heat.) leave your 360 on until it red rings (you can hear the 360 quit down. it takes about 15-30 mins depending on how fast it over heats. once this happens unwrap the 360 and turn it off wait 5 secs and power it back on and there you go you should have picture and sound again. . if this don'ts help you now you have a red ringed 360 and you can send it in to get repaired since there is a 3 year warrenty for red ringed 360's.
hope it helps-but remember its risky

The red rings will pop up then they will go away


the three red lights mean the cpu has come loose from the board because of the way they bake it on. the cpu heats and cooks it off the board and the board sometimes flexes with excessive heat once turned off it cools down and connects wth the board again

360 wont turn on


Hi there, This issue may be caused by your power supply and or console not getting good enough ventilation or air vents clogged with dust causing over heating. Check power supply and keep in wide open area same with console (not sitting on carpet). If over heating is the issue you may have warped your motherboard, what happens is the Graphics processing unit (GPU) and or Central processing unit (CPU) get extremely hot causing the mobo to warp and the solder becomes loose and break. Even the fan may be the culprit, the fan uses a lot of power and produces a fair amount of heat that can cause the system to over heat. Please contact microsoft and get system repair if problem persist.

Black chip on the side.one of 'em fell out.


All xbox 360 are given a warranty for the 3 rings of death. If you call microsoft and tell them that your xbox 360 continues to get the rings of death, they will mail you a box, take your console, repair it, install the latest hardware, test it, and mail it back to you for free.
