you can not fix it yourself, or you'll void xbox 360 warranty policy. If your xbox is flashing red, you have set off the red-ring-of-death, also known as (rrod) the ring itself is telling you your xbox has been damaged and needs to be fixed (not by you tho, but by the xbox company).This can be mostly caused by poor airflow thru the system and overheating from the cause of it. For future reference, try to research about keeping your xbox from having this happen. One thing you will less likely find in this search for help , is that you should avoid having your xbox 360 standing up. I know you can have it standing up the long way, because it looks more awsome this way, but the thing about that is, your giving the console less air ventilation from flowing thru the xbox that is needed. put the xbox on its flat side with all air vents showing and not blocked. This will cause less of a chance from getting (rrod) again.

The lights keep blinking but nothing is happening. It wont connect to the console. What should I do?

It's possible the xbox 360 controller isn't connected to the xbox 360. Turn the xbox 360 on by pressing the power button, and wait until it reaches the dash board. Then press the controller syncing button on the xbox 360 itself and wait until the xbox 360's ring lights start to spin around. Then press and hold the synch button on the controller (located near the charge port) and the controller should synch up with the xbox 360.

My xbox keeps shuting down due to ventalation issues. Ive tried to clean the system with an air dust remover but i still keeps shuting off. My fan runs super fast all the time too.

Most likely, you have your Xbox in an area where it does not receive proper air flow and ventilation. Your fan is overworking itself from the dust and the heat of the area you're sitting it in.

Try moving your Xbox to a more open area after cleaning it, and be sure to let it dry out after using compressed air.

hi what you need to do is get onto the tvs menu and turn off the auto function that selects best picture like widscreen 16.9 the screen ratio if you put it on one of the other settings other than auto you wont have this problem just try each setting untill you have correct picture so as it fills the screen.
Let me know if you need further asssistance ok
