This is a hardware fault known as the ring of death. possibly caused by overheating.

Go to http://support.xbox.com and see if your machine is still in warrenty. if so Microsoft will replace the system free of charge

Two red lights


It is overheating I suggest buying a fan hook-up(I forgot the name).Or open up the console(although you will lose your warranty) and turn off the console for about one hour(usually it takes 3-5 minutes,but just to make sure).

Two red quadrants light up on the left and screen goes blank.


there are two posibilitys to your problem it could be either there is something unpluged in your 360 or your could have a virus you should take your 360 apart and check it if it is still under warrenty through microsoft you should send it in to them and let them fix it but if it is out of warrenty then you should get the tools at your nerest radio shack and take it apart and check it out and let me know what happens

Flashing 3 red lights


The 3 flashing lights suggests that it's a hardware problem and you'll have to send your 360 to Microsoft for repair. Go on xbox.com and there is a link for repairs.

Xbox shuts down during a game 3 red lights


hey johnny you will have to call microsoft and get it fixed there is one thing you can do in the mean time to temp fix it.

what you need is two towels just normal bathroom towels take everything out of your xbox e.g harddrive,controlers etc only things to leave in is the av cable and power supply as you wanna turn on the xbox lie a towel flat on the ground and lie the xbox on its side ontop of the towel turn the xbox on, you will see the error message and the red lights flash. wrap the towel around your xbox covering the air vents and then the 2nd towel put over the top. leave it on in the towels for about 20 mins then after that take all the towels off turn off the console and leave to cool down for 15 mins. turn the xbox on and it should restart again fine but only lasts for a couple of days then you have to do it again. wont fix it but will let u play while microsoft gets it.

hope this helps please rate me

regards grant
