What do i do if a red ring comes on the xbox


This problem depends on how many red lights there are. The problems can be from a corrupt hard drive, to an overheated console. In this solution, I will mention all problems, and solutions.

1 Red Ring means hardware failure in your Xbox console. It can also mean hard drive corruption. There are multiple solutions to this problem. Turn off your console and unplug every single cord, cable, and memory device on your console. Wait about twenty seconds, and plug everything back in into it's origanal spot, and make sure everything is connected correctly. If the problem still occurs, try unplugging the console's hard drive, then turn on your Xbox 360. If your console then works after this, it could mean your hard drive is corrupt, or broken. Make sure to also disconnect all other memory units out of your console, such as a memory card. If the problem continues, contact Microsoft Support at the following link.

2 Red Rings means that your Xbox 360 console is overheating. Overheating is a common problem with Xbox 360 consoles. Turn off your Xbox console. Make sure it is in a roomy spot, and not near a heated spot. Also make sure it is not on top of a towel, or anyplace cluttered. As seen here,

natesprague6_4.jpg NEVER cool off a Xbox 360 in a refridgerator, or freezer. This may cause further problems to your console.

3 Red Rings means there is a hardware problem, or something wrong with your power supply. To solve this, make sure the color on your power supply is always orange, when your Xbox 360 is off. Also make sure the color is always GREEN when it is on. If it is RED when you turn your Xbox on, try unplugging every cord, cable, and memory device on your console, and plugging it back in about 20 seconds after, and make sure all plugs are connected securely into it's socket. If this does not resolve your issue, contact Microsoft support at the link at the following link,

http://www.xbox.com/support/contact

4 Red Rings indicates that there is no audio/video plugs detected from your AV plug. This is a simple problem to fix. Make sure all plugs are connected firmly into the correct color sockets on your TV. The following colors are the ones that need to be plugged in a Flat Screen TV,
2 Red, 1 Green, 1 Blue, 1 White. As seen here,


natesprague6_5.jpg Although, on a small, old TV, you usually only need to connect the yellow, and white cables. Make sure if you're using an old TV that does not support HD, switch the AV cable to 'TV', if it is switched to 'HD'. If this does not work, you may have to buy a new AV cable.

I hope this helped you, and the Fixya community! Contact me if you're still having trouble!

Cannot open the disk and cannot read the disk as well. The green light at the center of the ring always blinking


Hello
If you only get a flashing green light on the center while you turn on the console. You should get a green light going in a circle around the center light, (the 4 other lights, that can turn red as well (famous Red Ring of death))
if you don't get any red or green lights around the flashing center ring, then the console is not able to turn on / boot up properly and is in need of repairs, check the powersupply led, what color is it? it should be green when you power on and orange when not in use.

Red Ring Of Death. If your Xbox is still under warranty, ring Microsoft and they will fix it. If it is out of warranty It's either pay them to fix it or buy a new one

My xbox 360 delays everytime it powers up when you turn it on the middle of the power button turns green fan comes on takes 1 min for the outer rings to turn green and full turn on have tried different...


Sounds like you have a GPU problem. Sorry to tell you this, but this problem usually leads to the red rings of death. If you still have warrenty you should probly sent it in for repair. If not then you should try the x clamp fix. Just look it up on youtube. It will work I am 100% sure. Just make sure you follow the directions correctly. This shoud fix your problem and prevent you from getting the RROD

It freezes when you turn it on and shuts off. and when you try to turn it back on, instead of the green ring a red ring surrounds the xbox symbol.


It sounds like the RROD. If your XBOX360 is still under warranty, you can call Microsoft and they'll fix it. If not, you can either ship your XBOX off to be fixed by Microsoft or another company or try fixing it yourself. I fixed my red ring of death with a clamp fix (http://www.llamma.com/xbox360/repair/ring_of_light_x-clamp_fix.htm)

Im not sure if this well help you, but i have heard of a problem with the xboxs being called the 'red ring of death' which is a problem that sounds like your machine is doing. If you google the red ring of death you should find heaps of solutions to help reverse the problem. But if its still under warranty, id use that option first :) goodluck

The red rings will pop up then they will go away


the three red lights mean the cpu has come loose from the board because of the way they bake it on. the cpu heats and cooks it off the board and the board sometimes flexes with excessive heat once turned off it cools down and connects wth the board again

I get red rings when i turn on my xbox 360


3 Blinking red lights often means that your Xbox 360 has suffered from hardware failure.

4 Blinking red lights means that your Audio / Video cable is not correctly connected (it's the colorful one; Red, white, yellow; green, blue, red if Component)

If it IS just three lights, and you bought your xbox 360 under three years ago, call 1-800-4MY-XBOX
