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.

X box 360


If you have one red light flashing up on your system this is normally because the scaler chip at the back has overheated, you can fix this yourself - or you can send it in to get it fixed.

All four are flashing red


On the X-BOX 360 if all the lights are flashing red at startup the big plug in the back is either not plugged in all the way, or the system is unable to communicate with the television. it may be an internal problem with the system, but more likely the big plug in jack is jacked, or not plugged in fully.
Try pushing it in further. If this don't work try jiggling the cord, not the jack, slowly while pushing it in, and watching the 4 red lights.
Presto.

My xbox box has 3 red lights flashing... i know there are different types of error how do i know which on i have?


after turning it on, and seeing it display 3 red lights, hold the sync up button and tap eject.

The lights will change to a different pattern. This represents a number.
The number is four digits, so you'll have to hold sync and tap eject FOUR TIMES, remembering each pattern.

Pattern numbers are as follows:

4 red lights = 0
3 red lights = 3
2 red lights = 2
1 red lights = 1

Most common ones are 0020 and 0120.

4 red ligths on my xbox 360.


The AV cable cannot be detected

THINGS TO TRY
  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.

Exbox 360 4 red ligths


4 red light is a problem with your AV cable.
THINGS TO TRY
  1. Make sure that the AV cable is correctly connected to the xbox 360
  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.

    You can also check to see what the error code is yourself if your not sure whats wrong with it.

    To do this, you turn your x-box on, press the Connect button on the console itself and hold it in. Now press the DVD eject button to and look at the lights. it should be flashing 1 light, 2 lights, 3 lights, or 4 lights. grab a piece of paper and write down how many lights are showing. While still holding the connect button, press the eject button again. Write down how many lights are showing again. Then press eject again, and write it down. Then do it one more time and write it down. After you do this, then come back on fixya.com and let me know what error code it is.

    1 Red light = 1
    2 Red lights = 2
    3 Red lights = 3
    4 red lights = 0

    so an example of what you might write down would be:
    0
0
0
1

which would be 0001.

If you figure out the error, you can also visit the following website and determine what it is and if you can fix it yourself:

4 red lights


Make sure that the AV cable is correctly connected to the Xbox 360 console.

Disconnect the AV cable from the Xbox 360 console, and then reconnect the AV cable to the Xbox 360 console.

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.

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.
