Four flashing red lights on the XBox 360 console indicates a faulty audio/video cable connection.

Simply re-seat the A/V cable connections on the back of your console and on the back of your TV.

If that doesn't work, then try a different set of A/V cables.

An illustrated step by step guide can be found at Microsoft Support.

Disconnect and reconnect the AV cable. If that does not work, you can try a friend's cable. If that works, the cable is shot, if not the 360 needs a service or, well, that cable is shot too!

What do i do when i get one red ring?


If you mean that all four quadrants of the ring are flashing red, check your A/V cable. Make sure all cables are nice and snug on both the Xbox and the Television.

If only 1 red light is showing, flashing or not, check any error messages listed on the screen and try Xbox support

When i turn my xbox 360 on it starts running hard then the controller lights on the device start flashing red.


Four lights around the power button flash red on your Xbox 360 console. Four flashing lights indicates that the console does not detect an audio/video (AV) cable.
Note Four flashing red lights will not appear on consoles that have both an AV port and an HDMI port.

Four red flashing lights after downloading the update


four flashing lights means that there is an error with the a/v output check the plug that goes into your xbox and goes to the tv also check the switch is on one of the position on the cable (its the box which fits into your xbox and the cables run into the tv).
If your still getting 4 rings try a friends tv cable or a family members to see if your cable is faulty

One flashing red light on xbox360 ( not red ring)


The specific type of hardware failure can be determined by a "hidden" error code
Turn the xbox 360 on, and wait till the 3 red lights are flashing.
Press and hold the sync up button (the small white one), while holding that button press the eject button.
The LEDs will now blink the first number in the code (as described below).
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the second number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the third number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the forth number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will go back to the 3 red flashing lights.
You should be able to determine the difference between the 3 flashing lights and the error code lights by the rate in which they flash.
Here is how you interpret the LEDs to get the code number:
All four lights flashing - 0
One light flashing - 1
Two Lights flashing - 2
Three lights flashing - 3

Once you get this code, go to: http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=484726
To get the reason for the code.

4 red ligths on my xbox 360.


The AV cable cannot be detected

THINGS TO TRY
  1. Make sure that the AV cable is correctly connected to the Xbox 360 console.
  2. Disconnect the AV cable from the Xbox 360 console, and then reconnect the AV cable to the Xbox 360 console.
  3. If the four flashing red lights continue to flash, try wiping the metal area of the AV pack with a dry cloth. The metal area is the end that plugs into the console. Wipe the metal area thoroughly, and then try the AV Pack again.
  4. If the AV cable is correctly connected but the four red lights are still flashing, substitute a different AV cable if you have one available.
