I bought an xbox360 and i get the RED lights flashing on it and as soon as you turn it on the lights cme on. so it does'ent work what should i do?


Nearly all of the lights are caused by overheating - you may have the 3 red lights which is caused by the GPU and the CPU overheating or 2 red lights where the console will feel hot.

Then you can get freeze ups and disc reading problems as well.

How many red lights are showing on the power button?

You can fix all of these errors from home using a good repair guide or send it in.

I have an xbox360 and it freezes after 10 seconds of being swiched on it hasnt got the ring of death please help


First, try taking out your hard drive and see if it will play a game then. If that doesn't work, then its likely to red light soon. If you eventually get three red lights, the x-clamp fix usually works.

I have 3 flashing red lights on the console and a yellow light on the power supply


3 red flashing lights is known as the red ring of death. Your power supply showing a yellow light is ok, that just means that your power supply is on standby. The first thing you should do is check with microsoft to see if your unit is still under warranty with this site: http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/xbox360/LiveIDSignIn.aspx?redirectUrl=http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/xbox360/registerdevice.aspx?step=repair

My xbox360 has a red circle instead of a green circle theirfore will not work what can this be


Three flashing red lights around the Xbox 360 power button (nicknamed the "Red Ring of Death"), represent an internal problem that requires service. Warning signs may include freeze-ups, graphical problems in the middle of gameplay, such as checkerboard or pinstripe patterns on the screen, and sound errors, and the console only responds to pressing the power button to turn it off.

This error code is usually caused by failure of one or more hardware components, although it can indicate that the console is not receiving enough power from the power supply, which can either be due to a faulty power supply or if the power supply cable is not fully inserted into the console.


Distinct from the General Hardware Failure is a similar-looking error warning where four red lights appear, in which case the console does not detect an AV cable is plugged in. The four lights can sometimes also be seen when power surges or very brief power outages occur while the console is running, in which the console needs to be unplugged and plugged back in again to reset the error. Two red lights appear when the system is overheated.

One flashing red light on xbox360 ( not red ring)


The specific type of hardware failure can be determined by a "hidden" error code
Turn the xbox 360 on, and wait till the 3 red lights are flashing.
Press and hold the sync up button (the small white one), while holding that button press the eject button.
The LEDs will now blink the first number in the code (as described below).
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the second number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the third number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the forth number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will go back to the 3 red flashing lights.
You should be able to determine the difference between the 3 flashing lights and the error code lights by the rate in which they flash.
Here is how you interpret the LEDs to get the code number:
All four lights flashing - 0
One light flashing - 1
Two Lights flashing - 2
Three lights flashing - 3

Once you get this code, go to: http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=484726
To get the reason for the code.

XBOX360 RED LIGHTS FLASH ON CONSOLE AND I GET NO PICTURE?


this problem occurs:


  • When there is too much current.
  • When the voltage is too high.
  • When the temperature of the power supply is too high

  • if you have the console plugged into an extension lead try plugging directly into the wall, but 1st, turn off your console and leave power plugged in to allow fans to continue cooling the system.. after fans switch off, carefully plug out power cord and allow cord and console to cool in a well ventilated area for 24 hours. if its still red you may need to replace your power cord as it may have overheated

    Xbox360 red 3 lights on front of console.


    You have the proverbial "Red Ring of Death"

    Your X-box has encountered a critical error and must be sent to Microsoft for repair.

    Good luck man, my friend had to send his back twice before it finally started working right.

    Xbox 360 3 red red lights


    1-800-4-MY-XBOX (1-800-469-9269) If you did not open your box an break the microsoft seal. They fix for free. If not you can replace the x-clamp on the motherboard for the GPU. You see the xbox360s motherboard warps because it runs so hot and the cheap x-clamps used to hold down the heat sinks are not strong enough to keep the board straight. When the board warps it losens the solder around the GPU causing the 3ROD. Just google the xbox360 x-clamp mod to find out how to get it done. If you fix yourself it will cost you like $3.00 for parts at Lowes!
