Thanks for your question. To fix the 3 red lights what you will need to do is stop the
heat getting to the GPU and the CPU and to do this you can use a good Xbox 360
Repair guide or of course you can send it in.

Strange sounds normally a hi frequency buzzing and freezing ( lockup ) and then 3 reds . The connections under the G.P.U.
are hanging on by a thread . So as the console's P.C.B. expands
and contracts you will be left with a undependable 360 or total
system failure.

Unfortunately most repair don't include replacing the x clamp
hardware after a solid re-flow with a heavy duty G.P.U. bracket
witch would eliminate 90% of the problem with regard to the
G.P.U. breaking away from the board again.

Your console needs a re-flow and a hardware up grade.

There is a product caled a C.C.A. it's a 1/8 steel plate designed to replace the x clamp retainer , for the D.I.Y.

I hope that helped

Xbox 360: Halo 3 won't start at all.


If the game wasnt new there could be a scratch on the Cd that has been buffed out but isnt visible, i advise you to contact the buisiness where you bought the game and exchange the disc or try getting it buffed again for 6$. If they wont replace the game for free try a buff so its cheaper, and if all doesnt work but im sorry you will need to buy a new copy.

Hope this helps ^^. Please dont forget to rate, Thanks

Xbox 360 is freezing with no red rings and an intercooler?


The freeze ups normally happen before the red lights of doom and they are caused by the GPU and the CPU getting too hot and the soldering snaps off so they lose connection.

If you stop the heat build up you will be fine.

You can do this yourself using a good repair guide or you can send it in and they will fix it for you.

As long as you stop most of the heat getting to the GPU and the CPU you will be fine.

No audio/no video, but no red lights


no red lights, no previous error msgs, and video output on the box has just died. playing halo yesterday and mid-game the colours went askew (like a green overlay) with horizontal banding, backing out to the dash solved nothing so after a reboot there was simply no video. troubleshooted the tv and cables and its definately the box.

Blank screen on Xbox 360 sometimes


I've had this happen twice now and both times my warranty has just expired by a month, i spend and hour moanin on the phone to xbox but they still want me to pay over £80 to fix it!

So here is what u do; **** and moan to all your friends impotently about it, look at the xbox for long periods of time with distain while muttering insults to yourself, call Bill Gates a complete W**ker repeatedly for a few days and then swallow ur pride in a big lump and end up payin for the damn thing while emtily promising yourself that if it happens again your not getting another one! When it finally does happen again (one month after the warrenty runs out to the day no doubt) repeat the prosses!

HALO 3 UPDATE


Have you got the internet connected to your Xbox 360? If so, i have two relevent answers:

1: Don't press update, i've heard that the update is not a necessity to playing the game.

 

2: Contact the store that you rented it from or; Contact microsoft and tell them the problem.

 

If you haven't got the internet connected to your xbox 360 then it WON'T work.

 

cheers.
