How do you fix the xbox 360 when the three red lights come on?


Thanks for your question. To fix the 3 red lights what you will need to do is stop the heat getting to the GPU and the CPU and to do this you can use a good Xbox 360 Repair guide or of course you can send it in.

Do not buy any Xbox 360 Repair Guide! - Read This First! It's FREE!


If you have problems with your Xbox 360 like flashing light 3 red rings or any other problem then you should send it back to Microsoft!

No- one can claim to have an official guide as Microsoft have not released one!

There is ways that you can fix your Xbox at home but because there is so many different guides out there it is really difficult to know which one's are for real!

I have seen guides that tell you to heat your Xbox up with a heat gun or attempt soldering work yourself!

This is silly if you were not a mechanic would you try and fix a car?

Red Ring of Death: Red Flashing XBOX 360 Lights Explained Common Xbox 360 Red Ring Errors The XBOX has a reported 54.2% failure rate which makes the XBOX 360 gaming consoles' worst "lemon" to date. If you find yourself with the red flashing lights error, --> lg.php?category_id=15&content_type=article&content_type_id=2663399&key_page=682482001924178892&site_id=1&bannerid=11791&campaignid=3153&zoneid=23&loc=1&referer=http%3a%2f%2fwww.associatedcontent.com%2farticle%2f2663399%2fred_ring_of_death_red_flashing_xbox.html%3fcontent_type%3darticle%26content_type_id%3d2663399&cb=8da55f49a0 follow this guide to try and pinpoint the problem with your XBOX 360.

1 Red Ring = Serious Hardware Failure
I f your XBOX 360 has a 1 red flashing light error, you're more than likely in big trouble. The 1 flashing red ring of light can be due to GPU or CPU failure, RAM overheating, a DVD drive error, or some serious problem with your Xbox 360's internal components. The most common 1 flashing red ring lights error is the E74 error. The E74 error is no easy fix for the Xbox 360 and usually has to be repaired by the manufacturer [though some have managed to repair it with the heat gun trick - but be careful]

2 Red Rings = Overheating
Mostly all red flashing lights on the Xbox 360 rings are due to overheating in some way or other, but the 2 red rings singles out overheating as the main issue. When doing the X-Clamp fix the 2 red rings are required to fix the Xbox 360 by overheating the CPU. If you get this Xbox 360 error without doing the X-Clamp fix, you probably just need to let your Xbox 360 cool down for a few hours. Make sure that all vents aren't blocked off and that your Xbox fans are working properly in order to repair this problem.

3 Red Rings = Basic Hardware Failure
The most common error on the Xbox 360 is the 3 red rings - also known as the Red Rings of Death (RRoD). This flashing lights problem is the main cause of Xbox 360's 54.2% failure rate. The 3 red flashing lights can be due to lots of different errors but is mainly due to the X-Clamps in your Xbox 360 and overheating. Fortunately, lots of people were able to fix this issue using the X-Clamp and heat gun fix. Follow this list of error codes to find out the real issue with the 3 red rings because there are quite a few of them.

My xbox 360 has 3 red lights and when i turn it on my fans wont work just the 3 red lights keep flashing


This is called the red ring of death and is cause when the Xbox has lack of ventilation and the solder on the gpu melts together, the 2 options you have are to send it in to Microsoft or find someone who doesn't mind voiding warranties and knows the heat gun trick.

How to fix red lights on a xbox 360


I assume you mean the red ring of death. You may try the fix specified in the link below. You may substitute a heat gun for the reflow station, though the controlled process is always better. Be careful - too much heat may destroy the chips.

Xbox 360 has 4 flashing red lights when turned on.


usually the flashin 4 red lights is an indiction that your AV cables are not hooked up. Sounds like you have a hardware issue that needs to be looked at. You can always pull it apart and do the heat gun trick on the motherboard... but if your not comfortable doing that i would send it in or find someone who can fix it. Chances are, a solder joint failed with your A/V port.

Try using different AV cables if it works you need new cables. Chances are you will still have RROD after.

Xbox 360 3 red lights problem


I believe this is related to the GPU (graphics processor unit). I think the only cheap fix is to take apart the unit, use a heat gun and lightly go over the board. This has worked for me about a year ago.
