How can I fix "Red ring of death" on my XBox 360


Three flashing red lights around the Xbox 360 power button (nicknamed the "Red Ring of Death" or "Red Lights of Death" or "Red Ring of Doom"), instead of the one to four green lights indicating normal operation, represent an internal problem that requires service. Warning signs may include freeze-ups, graphical problems in the middle of gameplay, such as checkerboard or pinstripe patterns on the screen, and sound errors, and the console only responds to pressing the power button to turn it off. These events may happen once or several times until the hardware failure occurs, or not at all. If the console freezes occasionally, the error will not necessarily follow. The technical problems seem to affect some generations of consoles more than others. e.g. Xbox 360 60GB This error code is usually caused by failure of one or more hardware components, although it can indicate that the console is not receiving enough power from the power supply, which can either be due to a faulty power supply or if the power supply cable is not fully inserted into the console. The 3 flashing lights can also be caused by power surges; if the console is connected to an outlet that receives a power surge, it may have a failure and the 3 lights will appear as long as the console is plugged into the outlet. Turning off the console, unplugging all power cables and plugging them back in, and restarting the console will fix the issue in this case. hope this helps

Xbox 360 red ring


first of all, 3 red lights USUALLY means that you have an internal hardware error. microsoft has a garuntee that if your xbox DOES get the 3 red rings, you can send it in to them and get you xbox fixed or a totally brand new one for FREE. but before you do that, you should check ALL of the cords to make sure that they are plugged in right. there is a reported 33% of the Xbox 360 that were produced have a serious problem- once the motherboard reaches a certain temperature is bends, causing some solder balls to lose contact with the GPU and motherboard.
If there is anything that you want to be sure of before you take apart your XBOX 360 is assurance that what ever your going to do to it, is going to work!
just go to this website:
http://top3redlightfixes.com/XBOX3RedLights/xbox_360_3_red_lights.php?gclid=CIeBnJi1pJYCFQgRFQod0lsd7A

my friend used this site and got his xbox fixed in no time and he learned some suff too.

Xbox 360 elite 1 red light


When you get any of these messages appearing on your screen with one red light flashing on the ROL of your Xbox 360 console that's an indicator of a hardware problem with the console connection to one of the parts connected to it as the hard drive or cables.
So, first disconnect all power and AV cables from the back of your Xbox 360 console and also unplug the power cord from the wall socket, wait for a minute then reconnect them all back and try to turn on your Xbox 360 console once more.
If that doesn't work, it seems then to be a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so turn off the console again and remove the hard drive then turn on your Xbox 360 console without the hard drive, supposed then to work fine, it might be an intermittent issue and when you reconnect the hard drive your Xbox 360 will work fine all after, or it will just work fine without the hard drive so it will be then definitely a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so call Xbox 360 customer support to exchange the hard drive for you.
The number for Microsoft is usually listed on the back of any game manual.

I hope I was able to fixya problem, and Happy Gaming!

Try using your xbox 360 console without your hardrive. If the problem continues, the tree red lights means general hardware failure. Microsoft covers those with an extended warranty and you can have it repaired for free.

It is headed for the 3 red lights. Just a matter of time before the GPU solder looses contact.
