Four flashing red lights indicates that either the Audio/Video (A/V) cable is missing/damaged or that the console cannot detect the A/V cable. First, make sure your A/V cable is plugged securely into the back of your 360. If it is, then try replacing the cable with a new one or borrow one from a friend. If that still doesn't work, it's not the cable but the console and you'll need to call 1-800-4MY-XBOX.

The ist light and second light shone red on my xbox but i cant find anything about these lights combo and a turned my xbox on and off and it worked what happend


You may have had a loose connection from the av cable ot your power supply may have over heated. The most common thing i see in my workshop is whn the AV cable csnnot be detected, all four will flash red, but in an over heating case, you will get flashing red on segments one and three. I hope this helps .

My x box 360 alite keeps crashing... white lines come up on screen..


Do you have red flashing lights on your console? This sounds like it could be a problem with the heating elements in the system. There are ways to fix it but unfortunatly you prob will have to take it to someone with 360 experience or send it off to microsoft for repairs.If you are getting red lights you should be getting one,two,three or four of them and that will narrow down what is wrong with your system.

When i turn my xbox 360 on it starts running hard then the controller lights on the device start flashing red.


Four lights around the power button flash red on your Xbox 360 console. Four flashing lights indicates that the console does not detect an audio/video (AV) cable.
Note Four flashing red lights will not appear on consoles that have both an AV port and an HDMI port.

Wii remotes dont do anything just get the four lights flashing?


You need to sync your Wii-motes to the system. Open the battery compartment on the backs of your remotes and the SD slot on the front of your Wii. Press the red SYNC button on the Wii console first and then on the Wii-motes. The remotes should syncronize to your system and work fine.

3 red rings


Over on another forum they listed how to decipher what your Xbox360 is trying to tell you when you get the three rings of light. There is a code that will flash if you hold down the "Synch" button (White button near the memory slot) and press the DVD Eject button. You will notice the quadrant of lights illuminate and each time you press the eject button you will get a different code.

It breaks down to this:

All four lights illuminate = 0
One Light = 1
Two Lights = 2
Three Lights = 3

Example:

Turn on your "dead" xbox. Wait for the 3 red lights. Once you get them hold the "Synch" button and the eject button down simultaniously. All four lights flash. (0) Press the eject button again and only one light (1) press again and all four light up (0) press again and two lights (2). Error code is 0102. compare this code to the table below to find out what is wrong with your X360. Is it overheating? Power Cord? Hardware?

The Code I got is 0102 which means the computer does not know the problem as it is not hardware or heating or anything like that. Could be dust, loose solder or static! I use a can of compressed air and my X360 IS BACK!!!!!! I do not know for how long but I played last night for several hours and had not one Hiccup. This after a whole week of the dreaded RINGS OF DEATH!!

3 flashing red lights


This is called the 3 rings of death and is well known amongst xbox users. including me... Ive had 1 xbox replaced because of it. Try the following to diagnose the issue. All four lights illuminate = 0
One Light = 1
Two Lights = 2
Three Lights = 3

Example:

Turn on your "dead" xbox. Wait for the 3 red lights. Once you get them hold the "Synch" (for the wireless remote) button and the eject button down simultaniously. All four lights flash. (0) Press the eject button again and only one light (1) press again and all four light up (0) press again and two lights (2). Error code is 0102. compare this code to the table below to find out what is wrong with your X360. Is it overheating? Power Cord? Hardware? what ever the code is refer to this list for the reason it is flashing...

The Code he got was 0102 which means the computer does not know the problem as it is not hardware or heating or anything like that. Could be dust, loose solder or static! He used a can of compressed air and his X360 IS BACK!!!!!! He did not know for how long but he played several hours after and had not one Hiccup. This after a whole week of the dreaded RINGS OF DEATH!!

after you diagnoe the code get back to me and ill tell you the problem and how to fix it.

4 flashing red lights


  1. Make sure that the AV cable is correctly connected to the Xbox 360 console.
  2. Disconnect the AV cable from the Xbox 360 console, and then reconnect the AV cable to the Xbox 360 console.
  3. If the four flashing red lights continue to flash, try wiping the metal area of the AV pack with a dry cloth. The metal area is the end that plugs into the console. Wipe the metal area thoroughly, and then try the AV Pack again.
  4. If the AV cable is correctly connected but the four red lights are still flashing, substitute a different AV cable if you have one available.
