That means there is a hardware failure. If you are in warranty, contact xbox at 1-800-4my-xbox and get it sent in to be fixed. Or you can try and fix it yourself with the self help guides online (search red ring of death fix).

How to Stop the Red Ring of Death on Xbox?


Hi Carolyn,
- notice poor game performance (if your games start taking a long time to load, or they become stutter or crash, it may be indicative of a looming hardware failure)
-notice poor system performance (if your system locks up, even when not playing games, this is a sign of hardware failing).
- understand the different light codes
Green-green lights indicate that console is powered and operating properly
1 red light-Hardware fault. Usually followed by E74 code on TV
2 red lights-overheating error. If the console becomes too hot, the system will shut down and display this light code
3 red lights-general hardware failure also known as the red ring of *****
4 red lights-AV cable isnt currently plugged in

If you do get red ring of *****:
- purchase a fix kit
-have console professionally fixed
-have console sent in to microsoft
-Prevent red ring of *****-understand what causes hardware failure
-keep your system in a well ventilated area
- avoid long gaming sessions
-keep system horizontal
-avoiding stacking items on xbox
-clean gaming area
-dust xbox

My xbox controllers will not charge with the plug in kit. The light turns red, then either immediately green, or it starts to blink red-off-red-off.


I had the same problem. The Battery pack on mine was dead for a long time as i havent touched my Xbox 360 in a while. So
SOLUTION
Step 1. Plug the play and charge cord into the controller
Step 2. If Light turns green within a minute or so, Unplug the play and charge cord and go to Step 1 (Repeating this process until the light stays red on the play and charge cord (3-10 times))

there are two posibilitys to your problem it could be either there is something unpluged in your 360 or your could have a virus you should take your 360 apart and check it if it is still under warrenty through microsoft you should send it in to them and let them fix it but if it is out of warrenty then you should get the tools at your nerest radio shack and take it apart and check it out and let me know what happens

Xbox 360 error 73


Sometimes the easiest way is the fastest way. The signal reset button (the little one to the left of the power button) is also the unofficial reset button for the Xbox 360. With the Xbox turn off, press this button and keep pressing it while you press the power button. Do not release the reset button until you see the system booting up normally. Of course, if there is a permanent or a more serious damage to the system, it won’t work or the error will be recurrent until it is solved. Resetting just clears the error from memory.

X box crashing no red lights


when it crashes does it turn off the whole system or does any lights come on?

sounds like the the processor is over heating and its causing the system to shut down before it burned up the board. basicly your thermal paste between your processor and the heatsink isnt doing its job. there could be a crack on it might have just degraded over time.

Yes they will still fix it for you as their is test points on the board where they can check each part for faults as you told them their was 3 flashing lights they will know whats wrong with it anyway as this is for the tech guys to diagnose what fault it is the lights flashing 3 times will tell them the problem so dont worry they will fix it for you and they should give you warranty anyway so you will be ok

Xbox360 3 flashing red lights


Google up the red ring of death. Its a common over-heating problem on Xbox 360s. There are various solutions to this problem. The most recommended one is to take your console to Microsoft to get it checked. If you dont have an xbox 360 representative in your country as is my case, the second best solution is to buy a new 360 which comes more "prepared" for this issue. If you dont feel like spending 400 dolars on a newer model of the 360 then you should try some of the alternative temporary fixes. Most fixes have been reported as temporary, although if you are lucky maybe your Xbox 360 will last a long time fixed.

Basically solutions require to void your guarantee. Any fix which requires you to open your Xbox (the thermal-paste and the rubber fixes, etc (i will post link at end of comment)) will automatically void the guarantee. Theres a temporary solution which almost always works which is to wrap your xbox into towels without the hard drive and cables, only the power cable pluged in, and the console turned on. It will heat up and after 10 or 15 minutes unwrap it, let it cool down and you'll be playing in no time. Although this is definitely not recommended as you will be over-heating lots of components which are working well and could damage them. Well, hope this link works and saves you money. http://www.fixya.com/support/t142158-3_flashing_red_lights
