This isn,t really a practical fix.
The Red Light Would indicate overheated Processor Or graphics Chip. No video out, would make the Graphics chip likely suspect. Due to the cost of X-Boxes these days.
My best Solution For you, would be to purchase a second-hand one, From e-bay. And keep yours for a Spare. it,s more cost effective. I,d also recommend going for a later model Crystal With The samsung DVD drive, they,ll read any Disks that you throw at them. especially useful if your going to do any additional works To It.

Red light problem

If you are getting the red light error this is caused by different things depending on how many red lights you having showing up:

1 red light is the display chip overheating

2 red lights is the whole console overheating and you should try and cool it down to fix this.

3 red lights is the most common error and it is caused by the GPU and the CPU overheating, you will need to stop the heat build up.

4 red lights is just the AV cable not plugged in normally.

To fix the 1, 2 , 3 red light error you will need to send it in and they will fix it for you.

The only problem is that this can take about 4 weeks and you will also have to pay out a repair fee to fix the problem.

The other way is to use a good Xbox 360 Repair guide that will show you how to stop the heat build up on the chips.

There are a few of them about but i have put together a list of the top sites HERE.

I hope this helps and if so please rate it so it can help others.

M y Xbox 360 has a red light when i turn it on

Here is the red lights and what they mean:

1 red light is a display chip error and you will need to get it repaired.

2 red lights is the overheating error and you may be able to fix this by cooling down the system as long as no damage has been done.

3 red lights is a hardware error and this is the most common, you will need to get this fixed as it is a hardware failure.

4 red lights is the AV cable that is not plugged in properly.

Now you can fix these by sending it in and they will fix it for you although for some of the errors you will need to pay out $140 in repair fees.

The other way that you can fix it is by using a good Xbox 360 Repair guide and I have put together a review of the best guides HERE.

Red ring at start up how dew i fix it

If you have the red light at start up here is how you can tell what is wrong with the system:

1 red light: This is the scaler or display chip you will need to get this repaired - see below.

Sometimes you will get an "E" Error message as well.

2 red lights - Pure and simple overheating, you will need to stop the heat build up in order to play your games again.

3 red lights - Most common error and happens when the GPU and the CPU overheat and the soldering snaps off you will need to repair this.

4 red lights - Good news you just need to plug your AV cable into the back of the Xbox 360 and it will work for you.

To fix the 1 and 3 red light you will need to send it in and they will fix it for you.

Or you can fix it yourself using a good Xbox 360 Repair guide, I hope this has helped you and if so place rate this so it can help others.

Ps 3 screen will not turn on how do i fix it

  1. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the HDMI OUT port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI Input port of the TV or display monitor.
  2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive power button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light --> green light --> then back to red light). This will ensure that you have held down the power button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  3. Turn on the PLAYSTATION 3 system and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).
