If you have two red lights blinking, that means that the A/V cable is not securely inserted either into the Tv or the console. If you have three red lights, this means you have a hardware failure, and willl need to contact microsoft for free repair. If it is one light, it is just an error and should subside by restarting the console.

Blinking red light.Checked all cables. I replaced Hard drive...still problem exists. Wondering if power supply could be problem


When one light from the four lights ring itself changes from green to red, it means that a general hardware failure has occurred or is imminent. Blinking of one red light with an error message like E66, E67, E68, E71, E74 or E77 means a repairable problem while the one red light blinking without error message means some critical or irrepairable problem. The problem can be avoided by restarting the Xbox 360 console but if you have not received any error message with one blinking red light then the problem is irrepairable. The console will behave the same way and you should understand that one or more of the hardware components in your console have stopped functioning due to hardware failure. If you receive an error message with one red light blinking then the problem is reparable and the system will definitely start working. It means that there is some hardware problem with the Xbox 360 console connection occurring due to the misplacing of cables in the ports. Turn off your Xbox 360 and disconnect all cables, now reconnect the cables and switch on the Xbox hope this helps.

Cannot open the disk and cannot read the disk as well. The green light at the center of the ring always blinking


Hello
If you only get a flashing green light on the center while you turn on the console. You should get a green light going in a circle around the center light, (the 4 other lights, that can turn red as well (famous Red Ring of death))
if you don't get any red or green lights around the flashing center ring, then the console is not able to turn on / boot up properly and is in need of repairs, check the powersupply led, what color is it? it should be green when you power on and orange when not in use.

One red blinking light on my xbox console


Hi, The red lights indicate an electronic failure, since you got this unit a week ago I would first contact the store where it was purchased to see if they will exchange it for you, if they won't, then the x box will have to be sent in for warranty repair. Call Microsoft and they will issue you a return label. Good Luck to you!

Flashing red ring on x box 360 console

Won't load game keeps blinkng red light


If the XBOX 360 is blinking the color RED in three of the four quarter of the ring around the power button, you will have to contact Microsoft for a replacement. This is what is known as "Red Ring of Death." You can find plenty of information on it if you Google it.

Click HERE for a video of the Red Ring of Death.

Click HERE for Microsoft's support system for the XBOX 360 and get in touch with Microsoft to get your replacement started.

It's the ONLY way.

Good luck.

360 issues


Two Red Lights

The two left quadrants of the Ring of Light flash red on the front of the Xbox 360 console
This behavior occurs when the internal temperature of the console exceeds the acceptable limits. You may think of this as too hot, overheating, and so on. Make sure the fans are operating and the system has adequate ventilation.

Since you've been inside it's possible that a heatsink or some other part of the cooling system is not working properly or is loose. Check all these!

Good Luck!
