Red ring on console


As you didn’t state how many red lights are on your Xbox i will post all the Red ring of death errors.
All sections red (4 Red Lights) = Could not detect the AV cable. Check all of the cables at the back of the console.
3 Red lights (Sections 1, 3, 4) = General hardware failure. Contact Microsoft Support.
2 Red lights (Sections 1, 3) = Overheating. Make sure that your console is in a well-ventilated area with a good air flow and try again.
1 red light (Section 4)= Hardware failure. This is usually combined with an error code on screen. Contact Xbox support.

1 red light flashing


1 red light indicates that there is general hardware related problem with the console, 2 red lights indicate the overheating of the console, 3 red lights indicate the red ring of death and 4 red lights indicate that you need to tighten your AV console wire. If you get any of the problems and your system is under warranty, you can ship your console directly to Microsoft and you will get back your Xbox 360 red ring fixed by the manufacturer, however it might take more than a month and you will also have to bear the additional shipping charges. If your warranty period is over, you will have to pay additional amount of $140, if you choose to send the Xbox 360 to Microsoft for red ring fix. Further you will have to also bear the shipping amount and wait for at least a month for getting your console back. However, you can avoid this and can repair your console your own. There are many good guides available at Internet and you can go through any one of them and can fix Xbox 360 red ring problems your own.

Red light flashes around the power button on the console


Four red lights- Your cables connecting the 360 to the power or the tv are loose.
Three red lights- console is broken, send it in for repair
one red light-console is broken, send it in for repair.

Three red lights


three red lights (no error message) - two reasons for the red lights: hardware failure or power supply unit failure.

when the three red lights is showing check the light on the power supply unit. if the light is green you console is experiencing a hardware failure. you need to send the console to MS service center or if you have no MS support in your country look for someone who knows how to repair the console or go to xbox-scene.com and look for information on how to repair the console yourself.

if the light is orange, red or no light at all, there might be a problem with the power supply unit. disconnect and reconnect the power cables from the 360 and reconnect them again. if there is an inter-cooler connected at the back of the console, remove the inter-cooler and turn on the console without the inter-cooler. try also a different wall socket and if the light on the power supply is still orange, red, or no light when you turn on the console you need to replace the power supply unit.

This happened to me 2 or 3 times.I checked the power supply and found that it was loose(the one in the back of the actual 360 console)when I pushed it in properly,is worked fine,i have not got this problem at all since then.So just make sure the power supply is properly connected.

Sections 1, 3, and 4 are flashing red
- General Hardware Failure
/ \
\ /


Check the secondary Error Code per the instructions in the section below

THINGS TO TRY
  1. Try restarting the console.
  2. If restarting the console does not resolve the behavior, follow these steps:
    • Turn the console off.
    • Unplug all the power and AV cables from the console.
    • Unplug the power cord from the wall socket.
    • Firmly reconnect all the cables.
    • Turn on the console.
  3. If these steps do not resolve the behavior, turn the console off, remove the hard drive, and then turn on the console. If the 3x Red LED error light is no longer displayed, turn the console off, re-attach the hard drive, and then turn on the console.
  4. Also examine the lights on the power supply. When you turn on the console, the power supply light should illuminate green even if the three lights on the RoL flash red.
