Xbox 360 red ring of death


Not a simple question.

It depends on the 360 to be honest.

Whatever you do try do not do the "towel trick"
The red ring of death is usually an overheating problem and the towel trick will cause the 360 to overheat.
Look on youtube for "the penny trick/fix"

I'd recommend you send your xbox to a repair center though. In most cases they will repair it for free.

I have two children both have the white xbox 360, my sons has the red ring of death, & my daughters will not power on, please help if you can, also some one told me i can trade them out with microsoft...


im not mark but if you have the box the one with the red ring of death version it should be under warranty as for the one that doesn't power on you can use its serial number to see if its under warranty on xbox home page (and there is a temporary red ring of death fix i used too seeing as Microsoft has know to find out when giving a refurbished one i know it looks stupid but it works look up towel trick in youtube im not sure behind the concept of how it works but i did it 3 different times buying me like 1.5 months before i turned it in it consists of overheating the 360 with towels its understandable if you think it looks to risky)

I tried the towel trick and the penny heat sink. The console worked for 3 weeks then the red ring of death showed up again. Nothing I've tried will work. Any suggestions/


The towel trick and penny heat sink is a temporary fix for the Xbox 360. The red rings of death is a general hardware failure which means it needs a permanent fix. If your console is out of warranty it will be $99 through Microsoft, you check your local service centers for the system to be fixed and it might be cheaper.

2 red rings after the xclamp fix


Yesh...4 red lights means you didn't have the component or hdmi pluged into the system and tv. 3 lights means there is some soldering problem in your 360. 2 lights means your 360 is overheated. For the 2 lights normally you can fix that with letting it cool for a while and give it some room around the system to run cooler. However by using the towel trick you you caused the soldering to run and now it's probibly miss soldered. I recommend you ship to Microsoft or sell it.

The tower trick is only a temporary fix, you will need to replace the xclamp or modify it to fix it for good. See pictures and replacement kit on the following site.
