Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Xbox 360 Apparently my xbox freezes up every time i turn it on. Then it got a red ring(probably because i stepped on it) I did this thing some kid on you tube did and the red ring went away and it works but it still keeps freezing. i'm thinking about buying a guide to fix this but it costs 30$ and i don't know if the guide will help. I've also had this xbox for a year and the warranty is up. What easy, reliable and cheap way can I solve this? CJ Futch

My xbox 360 freezes after being on for a couple of minutes. How do i stop this


If it freezes and then the next time you turn it on has red lights on the console display check out the corresponding Microsoft articles for the number of red rings on the display. They appear in quadrants on it.
1 red ring
2 red rings
3 red rings
4 red rings

If you do not have any rings, your console may just be overheating. Give it a while to cool down and if that doesn't work, give Microsoft a call: 1-800-4MYXBOX. Good Luck!

Red ring on xbox 360 how do i fix it


Hi,

Commonly known as ' Red Ring of Death '. Unfixable and Uncontrollable :(

Follow the below steps :-

Step 1: Swear a lot
Step 2: Call 1-800-4MYXBOX (Or 1-800-469-9269)
Step 3: You're going to start hearing a guy named "Max" talk to you, he's just a computer, just keep repeating the phrase "Agent" over and over again, it's a keyword that you don't find out unless you've called before, it directs you to a real person.
Step 3.5: If "Max" asks what console you're talking about, answer "Xbox 360"
Step 4: Tell the agent (Who will probably ask for your name first) that your Xbox360 got the three red rings of death (Mention three red rings, not just "red rings")
Step 5: At this point the person will most likely ask you to run some tests, they'll ask you to try running the xbox360 with the hard drive not attached, and then they'll ask you other stuff like what color the power cord box is, etc. etc. This is to see if your hard drive, power cable, or the xbox itself has a problem so it's not useless, just be wait it out
Step 6: They'll ask you for some billing things and just answer where you want to get the package, they'll also give you a reference number
Step 7: (This takes 3-5 days:) They'll send you a box with some foam, plastic, and sticky tape for packages.
Step 8: Get a label and stick the reference number they gave you on your xbox
Step 9: Put your xbox in the plastic that comes with it, and then put the foam things on
Step 10: Put the 360 in the box (It's prepaid) and then close it up using the tape they gave you
Step 11: Use the sticky tape you got to close the box again, then go to the post office and send it out to the return address that's on there.
Step 12: Wait 3-5 Weeks
Step 13: You should get a new xbox360 within that time

If the box takes longer than 5 days, or your xbox takes longer then 5 weeks, call them again and mention you're reference #

Thanks.

Why is my xbox freezing when my xbox does not have red ring of death?


its probably overheating try using a fan constantly on it when you play. if that doesn't work i bet the red ring will show up. if that happens call 1800myxbox they have a step by step instruction system for you to send it down and get it fixed. but keep your hard drive at your home. hope this helps
-good luck

I have 2 red rings on my xbox 360 but i dont understand what they mean...


The 2 flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with your Xbox 360 console. The main thing that causes the 2 red lights to start flashing is because of overheating and as the motherboard within the console takes more heat it actually warps and bends until the solders become loose.

Once this happens you will receive the 2 red lights. Even before you get the 2 red lights you may have noticed your games freezing and this is caused in the same way, by overheating. As the chips take more heat they shut off to prevent lasting damage, although they can only do this a number of times until you get the Xbox 360 2 Red Lights.

To fix the problem you need to stop the level of heat the motherboard takes and you can do this in a number of ways, but it will involve opening up your Xbox and working on it. In addition, you could always send your Xbox back to Microsoft as they are offering free repair for this error, you will just need to wait 3-4 weeks that's all.

There is one more option available in the form of DIY Video Guide, that will explain you step by step approach to fix red ring of death within one hour without any technical knowledge.

Xbox 360 elite freezing


I'm having the same issue with my elite... almost looks as if it glitches ( vid card possibly ) sometimes it will make it to loading screen of any game others it wont even make it past the xbox logo.. If I'm lucky I can get to the dash board, but most of the time it just freezes.

I'm so glad I spent the money on an elite cause my premium I sent back to MS 3x still red rings.

Any suggestions...? All lights turn green like normal no red ring o death yet .... yet, and I'm so close to tossing this thing off the deck and calling it a day.

Thanks for any help you can give

Xbox 360 screen freezing


Salutations nofear2313,

The "Ring of Death" is a known issue with Xbox 360's and Microsoft has actually extended their manufacture’s warranty to 3 years to cover this type of problem. I would contact 1-800-4MYXBOX to see how to get the unit serviced.

Hope this helps.
