Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Xbox360 1 Red light, sometimes 2

I just got an xbox 360 off of ebay (bad idea i know).... well i went to crank it up and got a top right and bottom left red rings. Then it goes from two to the top right just being red. I had it working for about 10 seconds. The guy I bought it from had a Thermaltake liquid cooling system put on it. Any ideas on what I can do to get it to work?

There are two things that those light mean.
-the best solution is to VACCUM the dust out of the xbox before you get other problems. The collecting dust is making ur xbox overheat. So keep it clean before you get the 3 or 4 rings of death!
-also, take off that cooling system because the 360 works best without cooling fan.
-Finally, make sure your A/V cables are securely plugged in.

2 RED LIGHTS ON XBOX 360


Two red lights sometimes means power to console troubles. There is a code you can get from machine and this can direct you better to cause of failure. When the machine is on press the sync button then the eject button at the same time. The 2 red lights will go and lights will appear and this will be youre first digit of the 4 digit code. Do this 4 times. 1 red light is 1. 2 is 2. 3 is 3. 4 red lights is 0. Let us know the code and i may be able to put you in the right direction.

My xbox 360 ha 2 little bars on the power button


Do you have two controllers? If it's the top left and the top right one that's probably the case. They light up in order top left, top right, bottom left, bottom right based on the number of controllers connected to it

Wont load,blinking red light on the power button


if it is the top left, bottom left and bottom right lights blinking red, this means that there is a hardware failure in your xbox 360 and there is no current way to fix this. i recommend that you send it in to xbox to see if they can do anything, and if not, they will possibly send you a new xbox 360.

I would recommend sending this back to microsoft if you can. If you can't for some reason. Ebay has many sellers who will fix 3 lights of death for much cheaper that MS will.

As playing Xbox 360 system shuts off two red lights occurs.


Two red lights mean your 360 is over exceeding the inside temperature. Your fan must not be working at all and your 360 is overheating tremendously. That is what I know about the 2 red lights. Im not sure what to tell you to fix this but to just call 18004myxbox.
