SOURCE: Scratched Xbox 360 motherboard

Hi,

Usually if a motherboard has been scored or damaged.
( tracks or resistors/capacitors dislodged et,c )
The board is in the Bin. ( scrap ) unless the damage can be repaired. The RROD Or red-ring of death. Is usually due to the x-clamps fitted to the console initially, by the manufacturer.
Replacing the x-clamps, with a kit ( bolts/washers thermal Compound ) And 4 x heatpads recommended. Can cure the RROD. And in my own experience the 1 red light And E74 error.

Bottom line, if the boards scratched. it,s in the Bin.

Mike @ Compurepair.

SOURCE: My XBOX 360 just shuts off by itself.

sounds like the start of the blinking green light and the tray wont eject, if you decided to get into it try pulling out both leads to the disc drive check them for damage make them nice an straight blow sockets where they sit and replace them true.if they are damaged replace them, NOTE opening your 360 voids the warranty

2 red lights is overheating you can try and leave the console alone and see if that cools it down, sometimes this will work.If it does not you will need to get it fixed and to do this you should use a good Xbox 360 Repair guide or send it in.

SOURCE: xbox shuts down during a game 3 red lights

hey johnny you will have to call microsoft and get it fixed there is one thing you can do in the mean time to temp fix it.

what you need is two towels just normal bathroom towels take everything out of your xbox e.g harddrive,controlers etc only things to leave in is the av cable and power supply as you wanna turn on the xbox lie a towel flat on the ground and lie the xbox on its side ontop of the towel turn the xbox on, you will see the error message and the red lights flash. wrap the towel around your xbox covering the air vents and then the 2nd towel put over the top. leave it on in the towels for about 20 mins then after that take all the towels off turn off the console and leave to cool down for 15 mins. turn the xbox on and it should restart again fine but only lasts for a couple of days then you have to do it again. wont fix it but will let u play while microsoft gets it.

hope this helps please rate me

regards grant

SOURCE: Xbox 360 3 Red rings of death

Hello Again Cereal_dude I had this problem once, my friend told me to put it in the oven for 400 Degrees for 10 minutes, and that will re-solder the un-solder parts on the CPU. The 3 rings mean there is a CPU error. When the CPU gets to hot, the Solder parts on the CPU become un-solder. So when the 360 is cooked at 400 degrees for 10 minutes, it'll re-solder the CPU parts back together and it should work after it cools off. Good luck!

My xbox turns on but it go right back off and the adapter stays orange.


It may have one of two problems. If it has an internal battery and it goes flat it will send an alarm then shut down. Secondly it may have an internal fan that has stopped working and as such it shuts down to protect itself.

Hi Sir


1) Remove your hard drive and/or memory units.
2) Run "Initial Setup" under the system blade.
3) Decline inserting HDD or memory unit when prompted.
4) Sync your controller and pop in a game.

It won't stay on for more than two seconds. It turns on then shuts itself off.


sounds like you got a overheated consol or it suffered heat damage at one point even if it was just the hard drive flaking out you would still get the dashboard. So if it turns on the goes off you got a bad gpu inside that overheated leading me to this question do you use external fans? if so you cost yourself a repair bill if not call sony right away and see if they can process an RMA! This sounds like a old xbox 360 issue with the ps3!

3 rings of death turned to 2 rings. xbox 360 NEED SUGGESTIONS


you probably did something to where you messed up your xbox motherboard, making it (after less then a minute of power) get short circuited and power fails. i would recommend getting it repaired by microsoft if you have a warranty.

2 red lights


Your xbox is overheating.
1. Let your Xbox 360 console cool. You may have to wait several hours for your console to cool enough. Don't turn on your Xbox 360 console when the console is hot. 2. Verify that your Xbox 360 console has enough ventilation and that the fans are operating. 3. If the two lights continue to flash after trying the above steps, you'll need to contact Xbox Customer Support.

I would recommend sending this back to microsoft if you can. If you can't for some reason. Ebay has many sellers who will fix 3 lights of death for much cheaper that MS will.
