My nintendo 64 will turn on but won't show up on the tv screen. The red light on the nintendo is on and sometimes as the nintendo is switched on a flicker of static appears for a second, but then nothing...


Have you tried to take out the game and blow into the cartridge and into the console? Sounds rudimentary but that sometimes works on those old consoles.

We get to red lights and the console shuts down, please advise


i hear that the three red lights means the mother board in the console has over heated and bent. If you do suffer from the 3 red lights and you console is NOT chipped or modified then microsoft will extend your warranty to 3 years from date of purchase for free and will repair it for free.

I have an x-box that is just under one year old. When it was switched on this week it failed to respond; when it powers up it just displays three red lights. Please advise.


"RROD" Reflow the motherboard,or send it in. RROD = bad connection under CPU or GPU in most cases.Causes; Overheat.It dries the thermal paste out and fails to transfer heat which in turn slowly fries the cold solder joints. I fix these consoles all day long,easy fix.

3 red lights appear - XBOX


Your console is most likely in need of repair.

The 3 Red Lights (known as the red ring of death) is caused when the unit overheats, and burns out some integral parts on the motherboard.

Call Microsoft, if your Xbox is less than 3 years old, they'll set you up with an exchange. It'll take 4 weeks, and you'll have to pay for shipping your broken Xbox, but it'll get fixed.

As far as I know, there's no way to permanently repair the Red ring of death yourself.

I soldered ana chip & tightened gpu chip. after switching on the set green light appeared for 5/6 sec. changing to 2 red lights. 2nd time only red lights came . Now it's not turning on.


1. Let your Xbox 360 console cool. You may have to wait several hours for your Xbox 360 console to cool enough. Don't turn on your Xbox 360 console when the console is hot. 2. Verify that your Xbox 360 console has enough ventilation and that the fans are operating. For more information about ventilation, see the "More Information" section. 3. If the two lights continue to flash red after you try steps 1 and 2, contact Xbox Customer Support. For more information about how to contact Xbox Customer Support, please visit the Xbox Support (http://www.xbox.com/support/) Web site.

XBOX 3 REDLIGHTS


Hi, I fix xbox 360's, the three red lights is usually caused by a bad connection between the gpu solder balls, if you still have the microsoft security sticker beneath the faceplate then microsoft will repair it up to three years since you bought the console. There is a lot of false information on the net about "The X-clamp fix", it will get your console working again, but it is only a temporary fix, results vary between 3 months to a year if you are very lucky, I have came up with another method which has been successful on a test unit for about 6 months now! Just remember, all the x-clamp kits that you can buy off ebay are temporary fixes, none of them are permanent as they claim!

Red Blinking Light


This is a general warning code. Try switching off the power in the back of the system, waiting a minute, then switching it back on. Try turning the system back on and see if it happens again.
