Hi! i got those damn three red lights and get an error code 0020 what is wrong??? thank you :)


Unfortunately, the 0020 error means that the motherboard of the console is overheating and bending the board loses contact with the heat sink and GPU (graphics processor unit). If the unit is under warranty, contact Microsoft Xbox support. (The warranty for the 3 red light issues was extended to a 3-year warranty.)

If it is out of warranty, there are a couple of things to try. 1) Modify the X Clamp on at least the GPU; sometimes the X Clamp on the CPU also needs to be fixed. Remove the heat sink and put a better coat of thermal paste on the processors. Then either replace the original heat sink or use a better one. http://www.llamma.com/xbox360/repair/ring_of_light_x-clamp_fix.htm

2) Some people have fixed the problem by heating the entire motherboard with a heat gun to straighten out the entire board. (Protect the capacitors and other parts on the top of the board with towels.)

I hope this helps.

My xbox has 3 flashing red lights on front. What does this mean


It means your system has the dreaded RROD Or Red Ring Of Death,

If you turn the system on and hold the sync button and then hit the eject button, You can find its code you will have to do it 4 times, 1 light means 1 2 lights means 2 3 Means 3 and 4 lights means 0.

You can usually get a code like 0020 0102 and so on, below is a link that will tell you what each error code means,

also look at the back of your system locate the manufacture date, If it's within 3 years of that date don't open the system call microsoft and have them fix it for free.

Error Code 0020


First, my xbox would have one red light and E 74. Then when I opened it up and booted it I got three red lights and 0020. I took out the motherboard, replaced the heatsink compound and did the x-clamp fix, but I couldn't get nylon washers in the right size so i just used no washers at all. Varying the tightness of various x-clamp bolts gave me 0020, 0003, 0002, 0001, or it would boot up to the black screen and I'd get E 74 again. Other times the xbox would almost immediately overheat. Most of the time I would get 0020, though. At that point, I gave up and I just tightened up the bolts replacing the x-clamp a certain way (nothing seemed special about it) and put the motherboard back in the case without testing it. I screwed everything back together, and since the heads of the bolts were thicker than they should have been, the motherboard didn't really sit flat in the metal cage. But i just screwed the motherboard back into the cage not to tight with the 9 small silver screws, which I would imagine put some stress on the mobo. Then I pu the rest of the case on and the 6 long screws, and once I had snapped everything back together I tried booting it up. To my great surprise it booted up fine! I played some halo 3 and it has booted up fine every time (3 times) since then
Many people have got this error You need to replace the xclamp and make sure there's extra pressure (less than half a turn) on the front right corner of the GPU. You can read more about xclamp replacement here.

its not an issue with ur HDD so no worries....
