Three red light blinking on xbox360 - Microsoft Xbox Console

Posted by on

  • tonyblayney May 11, 2010

    Although i wasn't the person who repaired my machine, i have it on good authority that three blinking red lights indicates the processor becoming detached from the mainboard, and can be fixed in no time at all ( see my post on "one blinking red light"). It was repaired by a friend for free, so there was no financial gain in giving me this reason for repair, again, i apologise if this information is dated or incorrect. thanks.... Tony

Three red lights on my xbox


Three red lights on the xbox360 ring of lights means the xbox has a problem. It should be taken to be fixed or exchanged with the warranty. Try adjusting the power cable and other cables first before that. It could be a loose connection.

My 360 has 3 rings the rings are red and it wont turn on


Hello,

The three red lights mean that your XBOX360 is experiencing hardware failure. This is caused by overheating of your XBOX. Contact Microsoft and have them fix the problem. They have given free extended warranty for three red light problems. If you have bought your xbox360 within 3 years, you're in luck.. They will fix your console for free...

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.

My xbox360 has three red flashings red lights?


Ok it sounds like 3 rings of death.. now this will sound crazy but it saved a few 360s that came through me...

Take 2 towels and wrap it around the 360 to make sure it can heat up (YES I AM SERIOUS) turn it on for 15 min and let it sit.. the 3 lights will blink.. after the 15min unwrap let it rest for 30 seconds then boot it up again.. somtimes thats all it needs let me know asap if it worked.. It worked on mine and saved my cod3 life!
