Hello alex_kendric

The first thing you should try is disconnect and reconnect your power supply. Follow the following steps:

1. Turn off the console.

2. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the console, unplug the power cord from the wall and from the PSU (power supply unit).

3. Reconnect all three connections.

4. Turn the console back on.

If this doesn't help, please let me know and I'll try to assist you further.

Good luck

Red Ring of Death: Red Flashing XBOX 360 Lights Explained Common Xbox 360 Red Ring Errors The XBOX has a reported 54.2% failure rate which makes the XBOX 360 gaming consoles' worst "lemon" to date. If you find yourself with the red flashing lights error, --> lg.php?category_id=15&content_type=article&content_type_id=2663399&key_page=682482001924178892&site_id=1&bannerid=11791&campaignid=3153&zoneid=23&loc=1&referer=http%3a%2f%2fwww.associatedcontent.com%2farticle%2f2663399%2fred_ring_of_death_red_flashing_xbox.html%3fcontent_type%3darticle%26content_type_id%3d2663399&cb=8da55f49a0 follow this guide to try and pinpoint the problem with your XBOX 360.

1 Red Ring = Serious Hardware Failure
I f your XBOX 360 has a 1 red flashing light error, you're more than likely in big trouble. The 1 flashing red ring of light can be due to GPU or CPU failure, RAM overheating, a DVD drive error, or some serious problem with your Xbox 360's internal components. The most common 1 flashing red ring lights error is the E74 error. The E74 error is no easy fix for the Xbox 360 and usually has to be repaired by the manufacturer [though some have managed to repair it with the heat gun trick - but be careful]

2 Red Rings = Overheating
Mostly all red flashing lights on the Xbox 360 rings are due to overheating in some way or other, but the 2 red rings singles out overheating as the main issue. When doing the X-Clamp fix the 2 red rings are required to fix the Xbox 360 by overheating the CPU. If you get this Xbox 360 error without doing the X-Clamp fix, you probably just need to let your Xbox 360 cool down for a few hours. Make sure that all vents aren't blocked off and that your Xbox fans are working properly in order to repair this problem.

3 Red Rings = Basic Hardware Failure
The most common error on the Xbox 360 is the 3 red rings - also known as the Red Rings of Death (RRoD). This flashing lights problem is the main cause of Xbox 360's 54.2% failure rate. The 3 red flashing lights can be due to lots of different errors but is mainly due to the X-Clamps in your Xbox 360 and overheating. Fortunately, lots of people were able to fix this issue using the X-Clamp and heat gun fix. Follow this list of error codes to find out the real issue with the 3 red rings because there are quite a few of them.

My Xbox 360 just started turning itself off after about 4-8 mins.2 red lights come on ,on the left side while laying flat.


you have the "Red Ring of Death" this is a problem the 360 have encoutered over the years, Mainly with the first 500,000 that were sold. To solve the (RRD) "Red Ring of Death" you can do what they call, "The towel trick" where you take a couple towels and wrap the 360 in it while it is on, After you do so with 4-5 towels you allow the 360 to over heat causing it to shut off. After you let it cool-down. You can turn it on and will fix the ring temporarlly! You can send the 360 in to microsoft for free if you are having this problem, It was included in the warrnety.. So if you do mail it to microsoft then you will be without gaming for 4-6 weeks. But will have returned a full functioning non-ring of death. :o) hope this helped!

1 red light flashing


1 red light indicates that there is general hardware related problem with the console, 2 red lights indicate the overheating of the console, 3 red lights indicate the red ring of death and 4 red lights indicate that you need to tighten your AV console wire. If you get any of the problems and your system is under warranty, you can ship your console directly to Microsoft and you will get back your Xbox 360 red ring fixed by the manufacturer, however it might take more than a month and you will also have to bear the additional shipping charges. If your warranty period is over, you will have to pay additional amount of $140, if you choose to send the Xbox 360 to Microsoft for red ring fix. Further you will have to also bear the shipping amount and wait for at least a month for getting your console back. However, you can avoid this and can repair your console your own. There are many good guides available at Internet and you can go through any one of them and can fix Xbox 360 red ring problems your own.
