I put my xbox on to play a game, and i saw this red flashing light appear on the xbox itself where the circle is that tells you how many players there are. What shall I do? Please reply. ...


Good news, that can happen because the video cable is not connected! Make sure the video cable is still plugged in and try again! If thats not it, then you need to send it back to microsoft. If you need to send ti back, just call them at (800) 469-9269. Good luck!

I think the video cable for my xbox is messed up. Why does it keep showing up these little circle things? Whenever I turn on my xbox it doesn't come up anything but a black screen with little circles...


NOT HD: Make sure red goes to red, white on white, and yellow on yellow, also make sure the switch that is on the xbox wire plug says TV not HD.

HD TV: Make sure red on red, white on white, yellow on yellow, blue on blue, green on green, etc. Also make sure the switch that is on the xbox wire plug says HD not TC

My xbox360 has a red circle instead of a green circle theirfore will not work what can this be


Three flashing red lights around the Xbox 360 power button (nicknamed the "Red Ring of Death"), represent an internal problem that requires service. Warning signs may include freeze-ups, graphical problems in the middle of gameplay, such as checkerboard or pinstripe patterns on the screen, and sound errors, and the console only responds to pressing the power button to turn it off.

This error code is usually caused by failure of one or more hardware components, although it can indicate that the console is not receiving enough power from the power supply, which can either be due to a faulty power supply or if the power supply cable is not fully inserted into the console.


Distinct from the General Hardware Failure is a similar-looking error warning where four red lights appear, in which case the console does not detect an AV cable is plugged in. The four lights can sometimes also be seen when power surges or very brief power outages occur while the console is running, in which the console needs to be unplugged and plugged back in again to reset the error. Two red lights appear when the system is overheated.

Xbox wont turn on


RRD - Red ring of death, caused by the processor recieving to much heat.
Ebay.com sell tools to fix this but I am unable to gaurentee anything.
If its going around in a circle flashing then that is your problem.
The fix kits on the net run about 20 dollars and take 30-45 min to do..
and include instructions on how to use the toold, and place the new heat washers
heat silicon silver and how to put back together.
Youtube.com also has videos on how to repair.

Good luck
