Hi there,

The TV screen or monitor remains black when you start an Xbox 360 console.

This behavior may occur with or without a game disc in the disc tray. The console appears to be on because the green power light illuminates and the fan continues to operate. However, the screen remains black.

4 flashing red lights means that the AV cable is not being detected. Double check to make sure that it is firmly plugged into the back of your xbox, as well as your TV. This should fix the problem.

Sometimes you really have to push it into the xbox pretty hard, remember to push the two side buttons in as you are plugging it into your xbox, or else it wont budge.

My ps3 doesnt work


if it wont load your icons and freezes before your xmb, put it into safemode and try restoring the filing system. to get it into safemode...

hold down the power button while the console is in standby. the light will go from red to green.it will beep once flash green beep again, and then beep a third time. after the third beep the light will turn red.

once the light is red, take your finger off the power button and place it back on the power button. the light will go from red to green, beep once flash and then beep twice quickly. after it does the double beep, take your finge roff. the light will stay green and you'll get a screen asking you to connect the controller.

after connecting the controller, try option 3, or whichever option is restore filing system. this can possibly correct media loading and will 95% of the time fix the console when it freezes before loading up your icons(the xmb)

When turning on the console the power light will blink red and beep and no on-screen video shows


This is a system failure. Your systems are "Dead" and need to be repaird by Sony. Other options include selling it on eBay or similar site (techs will buy them for the parts) and use the money to buy a new or refurbished one, call Sony and pay the $175 (US funds) to have them fix it, or take it to your local recycling center.
This problem is caused by a faulty bridge, connection or chip on the motherboard. I hope this helps. Thank you.

3 blinking redlights..just black screen


Hi,
it,s worth a look at the xbox forums on the internet regarding this.
dependant on how many red lights you have, the console has overheated. or you have a A/V output fault.
Look on the xbox 360 forums sites for further Information.

Dear support I have 4 red flashing lights on the system and cant do anything. I cant even get to the main screen. Someone told me it was called the ring of death. Please help me. ...


If you have 4 flashing red lights that means that the AV cable is not connected correctly. The ring of death is only 3 red lights. If you do indeed have 3 lights than i suggest trying this video clip. i have heard that this does work.

Hi, I hope something from below is useful to you...


Sections 1, 2, 3, and 4 are flashing red
- The AV cable cannot be detected

1. Make sure that the AV cable is correctly connected to the Xbox 360 console.

2. Disconnect the AV cable from the Xbox 360 console, and then reconnect the AV cable to the Xbox 360 console.

3. If the four flashing red lights continue to flash, try wiping the metal area of the AV pack with a dry cloth. The metal area is the end that plugs into the console. Wipe the metal area thoroughly, and then try the AV Pack again.

4. If the AV cable is correctly connected but the four red lights are still flashing, substitute a different AV cable if you have one available.


If this is helpful in any way, please rate! Thanks
