Xbxox original hardrive red ring


The "red ring of death" is really just an error code meaning that the console doesn't know exactly what's not working, but it knows it's broken.

If it's the hard drive itself that's broken, then any console that you plug the hard drive into will show the same error.

If you want to be sure, try taking a working hard drive and plug it into the Xbox -- if it's working, then it's just the hard drive that's screwed up.

My xbox had a red ring of death only one ring


This could indicate a hardware problem with your Xbox 360. Microsoft has a troubleshooting guide available here when you have one red ring: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/907536/en-us
Basically, you need to disconnect all cables, remove the hard drive or memory units, and turn the Xbox back on. If it works then, it could be a problem with the hard drive or memory unit you're using. If that didn't fix it, your Xbox will probably require a repair. Before requesting a repair, however, wait 24 hours and try the Xbox again - the problem could possibly fix itself.

Got a green light in the centre and bottom rt is red,can`t do a thing with it,any ideas?


When only 1 of the 4 green lights that are located around the start button flashes red and the screen flashes an error code number, it means that you've got the Xbox 360 1 red light message.

If you get the Xbox 360 1 red light message, it means that the problem is either with the DVD drive, or with the hard drive.

Fortunately, the Xbox 360 1 red light message is not something that you should worry about. In order to identify which of the two drives the Xbox 360 1 red light messages is referring to, just look the code number that the screen displays. DVD drive errors are identified with the codes E64, E65 and E66, whereas hard drive errors are identified with codes E67, E69 and E79.

once you have found out if its the hard drive or the dvd drive then this is the part that needs replacing.
you will either need to get someone to do it for you or if you have some idea what you are doing then it is something you can do yourself, always check to see if you have any warranty left and if you do take it back if not then you will need to pay someone to do the work for you.

if you are doing it yourself then take it from me its not easy taking the case off let alone changing the parts so if you are going to do it yourself use google and fine an xbox 360 repair guide and this will then give you step by step instructions on taking the case off and removing any parts you need to remove

One red ring, erra 68.


What you need to do is try using the console without the hard drive or with a different hard drive, one red ring means a hardware failure, and the error code e68 is in relation to the hard drive. If using the console with a different hard drive, or none at all doesnt work, ensure that the fans are working as they often also cause the e68 error and a single flashing red light.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

Red ring of death


It means "general hardware failure", so it could be any number of things. Its like a check engine light except when it comes on , it means something doesnt work. The only way to fix it is to send it off to xbox. Call 18004MYXBOX and they will send you a prepaid shipping label and a box and will get it back to you within a few weeks. Your xbox should be covered under microsoft's warranty so it shouldnt cost you anything. Removing the hard drive wont fix anything because the hard drive isnt needed for the xbox to operate, so if it failed the xbox would be fine but wouldnt be able to retrieve the data off it.
