I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. USUALLY THE RED LIGHT IS WHAT IS CALLED THE KISS OF DEATH.

IF YOU HAVE WARRANTY ON THIS XBOX YOU MAY HAVE TO USE IT TO GET A NEW ONE.

IF YOU DON T HAVE A WARRANTY. THERES A 800 NUMBER SUPPORT THAT LOCATED ON THE BACK OF THE XBOX OR YOU MAY GOOGLE FOR THE NUMBER.

CALL THE NUMBER THEY WILL TRY TO TROUBLESHOOT THE PROBLEM. ONCE VERIFIED THAT THE MACHINE IS BAD THEY WILL REPLACE IT BY A NEW ONE.

After playing a game for 5 min. or less playing on an xbox 360, the screen turns off and the xbox has 2 red lights on the ring of light the console is still on and the controller is still doing what it was...


2 red lights is overheating, try giving it a dust out and if this does not work you will need to stop the heat build up inside.

To do this you can send it in or use a good Xbox 360 Repair guide to fix it.

Red Lights


I had a similar problem, mine was an early warning sign to a red ring of death. I don't think Microsoft's warranty covers this problem so when you call just say I have 3 red rings on my console. I know lying is bad but it will probably fix your console.

2 red lights


Your xbox is overheating.
1. Let your Xbox 360 console cool. You may have to wait several hours for your 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. 3. If the two lights continue to flash after trying the above steps, you'll need to contact Xbox Customer Support.

Well, i thought it was RROD, but it wasn't. Just let your Xbox 360 console cool. You may have to wait several hours for your console to cool enough. Don't turn on your Xbox 360 console when the console is hot. Verify that your Xbox 360 console has enough ventilation and that the fans are operating. It might be over-heating.

Power cuts off


Might be a faulty power supply mate , when you turn the xbox on observe the power indicator on the power brick.
Green means its okay
Amber means the console is in standby
Red means the Brick has had it.

Try a friends power brick to see if it does the same.

As playing Xbox 360 system shuts off two red lights occurs.


Two red lights mean your 360 is over exceeding the inside temperature. Your fan must not be working at all and your 360 is overheating tremendously. That is what I know about the 2 red lights. Im not sure what to tell you to fix this but to just call 18004myxbox.
