If all four lights are red your av cable or hdmi is loose. if its 3 red lights this is the red ring of death (RROD) and it needs repair. microsoft has a 3year warrenty for this problem. what happens is the console gets hot and the "x" clamps holding the heat syncs to the chips bends the motherboard and causes the CPU or GPU to come loose enough to where they aren't making proper contact with the board. I've fixed several of these including 2 of my own. what you do is take it apart, remove the clamps and the heat syncs. clean the chips. apply new thernal paste and replace the problem causing clamps with screws and washers. plug in the xbox with out the fan hooked up for about 3-5 minutes until you see 2 red lights flashing which indicated the console is ovrheating, let it overheat for 2 minutes unplug it and tighten the screws. the overheating of the console softens the solder on the chips and allows you to tighten the back into place.

This is the video I watched to learn the process. Its part 1 of 9 i think">

X-box will not turn on. Red light flashes? Can this be fixed?


unfortunately not, this is called the red ring of death and its unfixable, you need a new one and make sure if it lies flat on ground or your table or sty, put something so the bottom wont touch the ground

Wii remote wont connect ?


if it wont sync after using the red buttons then its just bad batteries from the sound of it or the remote has gone bad.

Try fresh batteries or let the rechargeables charge (assuming they arent bad)

Red light flashes sometimes and not reading disks


Hi carla 0166,
Its not good news im afraid, that red light that flashes on the console is also known as the "ring of death".if one segment is red its not too bad but if its any more it wont work.
To get around this as daft as it sounds you need to overheat the xbox 360.
i know this as it has happened to me also.
simply switch the x box 360 on and then wrap a towel around it and leave for 30mins.
this will overheat the console and when switched back the red light should be gone.

I hope this has helped :)
