Are you sure you are talking about the Original Xbox? Please make sure your posts are in the correct cateigory for easy finding and therefore better solutions by xbox 360 experts ;)

If you mean Xbox 360 instead of original xbox then refer to below.

DO NOT OPEN YOUR XBOX 360 CONSOLE!
Microsoft will fix it for free with free shipping. Takes about 2 weeks.
There is videos and different ways to fix it online but it will happen again with those half baked solutions. With those solutions the xbox will work sometimes 1 week and sometimes 6 months but the console will break again. Also for an incentive for you, Microsoft adds another year to your consoles warranty and a card to a free month of xbox live.

SOURCE: a red ring comes up

Hi there www_jamie

What to do when your xbox Has problems with flashing lights RROD/red rings of death.

You will need some simple repairs done on your XBOX as the GPU chip (Graphics) or the CPU chip (brain) or even both have lost connection to the motherboard Due to overheating.

Option 1

You can send this off to Microsoft if your still in warranty because it is included in there free fixes so they will do the collecting for you, fix it and return the Xbox to you, all for free, but it will take 4-6 weeks.

Option 2

If you are out of warranty its the same process as above but its $150 in cost

Option 3

What I recommend is a Xbox Repair Guide that will show you the simple steps yourself, you will be up and running again in less than an hour and the cost is far less than option 2 & 3

Good Luck

Xbox on button comes up red


This is called the "Red Ring of Death," and it happens when your Xbox overheats. To fix this, you need to either get a new console or have a professional come in and work on it. To prevent this from happening, don't be on Xbox so long or buy an internal fan.

It freezes when you turn it on and shuts off. and when you try to turn it back on, instead of the green ring a red ring surrounds the xbox symbol.


It sounds like the RROD. If your XBOX360 is still under warranty, you can call Microsoft and they'll fix it. If not, you can either ship your XBOX off to be fixed by Microsoft or another company or try fixing it yourself. I fixed my red ring of death with a clamp fix (http://www.llamma.com/xbox360/repair/ring_of_light_x-clamp_fix.htm)

3 rings would be the ol' Red Ring of Death, while 4 rings means the AV cables are not detected.

You have a problem with your hardware. This happens to about 30% of xbox's over time. It is called the red ring of death. You need to reflow the solder under the GPU chip to fix it, find an xbox repair place on ebay.com
