How do i get rid of the red ring of death ?

3red lights or the red ring of death can be solve as simply as 123, it's a grievous hardware issue that can only be fixed by Microsoft. There some technicians who can fix it but the problem is after fixing it by an unauthorized xbox technician, once you connect to the xbox server your account will be automatically blocklisted or banned by xbox. The waranty code of the xbox can be broken once you try to open the console. Once its broken there's no chance for you to use the xbox to online. So the best thing will be calling xbox support and they will provide you instructions on how to send your xbox to them and they will fix it. if your xbox is still in warranty, they will replace your xbox with a refurbish one that will work on line.
Thank you for choosing

Orange ring

Okay here are a few ways that might fix the Xbox 360.
  1. Turn off the Xbox 360, wait 5 minutes, plug it back in and see if the error is gone.
  2. Unplug both the AV (audio and video) cables and the power cables from the Xbox 360 and wall. Wait a few minutes, and replug everything in and see if the error is gone.
  3. Take your hard drive out of the Xbox 360 and start the console and see if the error is gone. If the error is gone, turn the Xbox 360 back off and replace the hard drive. Then check if the error is once again gone.
If none of the above steps worked, then your going to have to spend some money to get your Xbox 360 back and running.
  1. If your warranty hasn't expired, then you can send it to Microsoft and they will fix it for free.
  2. If your warranty has expired, then you can still send it to Microsoft, but it will cost you about $150.
  3. If you don't want to spend the 150 you can spend a little bit of money and buy a guide to replacing it yourself on Ebay and such. If you do try and do it yourself remember that once you open the Xbox 360 the warranty voids, so if you still have a warranty send it to Microsoft.
Hope this helps!

My old x-box 360 has red rings and i dont want to pay to repair it so i need a thing to fix it i guess.

Remove the harddrive, remove game discs, turn XBOX on, remove anything external (ie internet, fans) wrap in 2 or 3 large bath towels and completely incase the console. Make sure no gaps or air can find it's way to the XBOX.

This is a temporary fix, it may work for a few hours to a few days. If you get it the RRD again, follow these steps until you buy a new XBOX.

Call the 1800 number and put the serial number in to see if it's still under waranty because some were extended.

Open tray not reading disc

Is it giving you the error, "can not read the disk?" or, is it trying to read it, make weird grunting noises and then doing nothing.

If you have a warranty, get them to look at it. Mine expired about 2 months ago and I was quoted 90 dollars to get it fixed. With the recent drop in xbox 360 prices, you can probably get a used xbox arcade for a bit more. It's your call.

You can research on different methods to get the DVD reader working again, but they all involve taking the disk drive apart and rigging it in a way that it works again. If I am sure you could introduce even more damage to the laser head if you mess with it enough. I suggest either coughing up the money for MS to fix, or buy an Xbox Arcade refurbished w/ warranty.

Hope this helps,

3 flashing red lights. what should i do?

There is no way to fix the red flashing lights, otherwise known as the "Ring of Death", except by sending it in to Microsoft. If your warranty has not yet expired, it will be a free repair. If it has expired, it will cost around $100 and you will be given a new one-year warranty. The number to call to find out how to send it, please call 1-800-4-myxbox

Xbox 360

if your laptop has an ethernet port, you could hard-wire from 360 to laptop.
Then connect wirelessly through your laptop to the Internet.
They,re a nightmare to configure, as you have to change several settings in the xbox connection part of the dashboard. you,ll need to go to M$ site, and download a program Called XBConnect.

Hope this helps, or at least points you in the right direction.
Might be wise, to view a few Xbox forums sites et,c.

Your waranty is your best bet. If the video chip or cpu is allready fried MS are the only ones who can replace it and / or fix it.That being said IF YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE (no waranty and no money) I've read of many people replacing the thermal paste under the cpu and video chip. Google "opening the xbox360". YOU WILL VOID YOUR WARANTY !!! MS has recently spent alot of money extending the waranty because of the red ring of death. Hope the answer and WARNING helps.$100.00 is not as bad as losing your xbox360 especialy if the componets are allready fried.
