My xbox showed one red light and the error code then it froze. what can i do?


1 red light is the display chip overheating, if you stop the heat your Xbox 360 will run again, you can do this yourself or you can send it in to get it fixed.

Your X clamps need to be tightened They are no longer holding the heat sinks on anymore and your Gpu is over heating.

Xbox fixed itself from 3 lights but other problem


When someone say that his/her Xbox is having 3 red lights problem, It means it needs to be repaired. If you are using Cooler than it is not a cure but a prevention. You could have used cooler before acutally having the problem just to prevent your Xbox. But now you will have to either get it repaired from Microsoft (in case your Xbox's warranty is not expired, but one thing to note is that you will have to wait for at least 3-4 weeks to get back your Xbox) or you can Fix your Xbox's 3 Flashing red lights problem yourself with the help of DIY Video guide available on Internet. You can fix yourself without any technical knowledge.

Red lights on xbox 360


Which three lights? if its Top Left, Bottom Left, Bottom Right, then you have the infamous "Red Ring of Death." witch means general hardware failure. If you search around on the internet, there are some Xbox360 modding sites that sell kits to repair this kind of problem (if youre brave enough to tackle it).

Luckily Microsoft is aware of this problem and has extended thier warranty to 3yrs (but ONLY if you have this particular problem).

Otherwise you'd have to send it into Microsoft to get it repaired.

Three red blinking lights


This means your 360 has had a hardware failure. If you have purchased your XBOX 360 within the last 3 years you will still have free warranty on it. Call XBOX customer support and they will help you with replacing/repairing your Xbox 360. 1-800-4MY-XBOX. (1-800-469-9269)

Hope this helps :)
