Ring of death

I'm guessing that the power light and three of the four quarters around it are red, also? This is called the Red Ring of Death. What this usually means is that the heat sink on your processor or graphics processor has become dislodged. If your console is less than three years old, it is likely under warranty. Microsoft should fix it for you if you pay for shipping. You can also try this link for other MS answers (

If your console is over 3 years old, there are other ways you can try to fix it. Just Google RROD, and you'll find lots of ideas that may wreck your console or might fix it temporarily.

My recommendation is that you call around to local video game stores and see if they have a trade in program. You can keep your hard drive and plug it into a new console and you haven't lost any of your game progress or achievements.

Xbox 360 Console: my xbox 360 game has a ring around...

Your disc was most likely laserburned. The xbox will do this if you run a disc for a long stretch, this problem may occur... To continue playing the game, you will need to obtain a good disc and install the game to your hardrive. You will then be able to play the game on your laserburned disc.

Xbox 360 problem with scratching disks

If your xbox is making that ring around your disc chances are you are playing your xbox standing up, if you lay the xbox down on its side this may fix the problem atleast it did for me. And as for the the midnight club freezing all the time it is still doing this on my xbox, copy the game to hard drive, and it should deffinitly limit the game from freezing, it worked for me.

A ring on the back of my game

try using some alcohol solution and rub it off with a cotton ball or swap in a circular motion getting all the scuffs off. if you have a head light cleaning kit that comes with a small buffing solution, 2000/ preferably 3000 grit sand paper and lightly and softly sand in the scuffs while swabbing the exist debre with alcohol and later buff it with some scratch solution you should be able to get the game to play again. its been done before i have tried it with pc games and worked fine.

4 red lights on the Ring of Light

The 4 flashing lights on the xbox 360 simply means that your A/V cable isnt securely plugged into either your console or your TV. Make sure these are really plugged in tight.

3 red rings

this is a pretty common problem in the xbox 360 world...from the time of purchase, you have a 3 year service coverage from the 3 red just have to call 1-800-my-xbox and tell them your issue and as long as you fall under that 3 year service, they will ship you a shipping box and repair the unit for free.
