I CAN FIX IT! There are links that show you how to repair this issue yourself (but they are not very clear and every thing is very fragile inside the XBOX 360) or you can contact me via reply on here and we can discuss the issue further as I recently repaired my XBOX 360 with the same issues and it works better than when was brand new.

Or you can google xbox 360 RRod issues it is a MS defect

I have problems with my Xbox 360 everytime i turn on the 360 there is a red circle. I tryed to fix it but it just won't work anymore how do i fix this Problem


Is there three red lights???? or a complete circle???? Three lights is the red ring of death. Four red lights or a circle is either a bad a/v cable (try a different one) or a bad hard drive....(try taking it off of the side when power is off then turn it on.).

Will not show on tv. Was working fine yesterday and this morning got up and try to play it and it wouldn't come on tv. NO red rings all green light on box.


Make sure to turn tv on before console, and also do a power cycle on the the 360 for about 3 minutes. Also unplug your a/v cable or hdmi and seated well. now power it back up.

Three red lights come up when i turn my xbox 360 on


Hey dead end,

While this may be an indicator that something is wrong with your XBox 360, there are a couple of steps that you can take before seeking additional assistance.

According to information provided by the manufacturer, the light on your XBox 360's power supply should still light up green even when the console has encountered a three red light problem. If the light on the power supply isn't green, you will want to take different actions based on what color is displayed. If this light is red, the AC adaptor may either be defective or has recently overheated. If the light is orange, you may need to double-check all cable connections are secure. If the light on the AC adaptor isn't lit, the AC adaptor may need to be replaced.

Alternatively, you may want to try turning the XBox 360 off, then pressing the power button again roughly 10-15 seconds later. If the unit powers on normally and the three red lights disappear, the system may simply have needed to be reset.

Should the problem still persist, you may need to speak directly with Microsoft for further assistance. You can reach Microsoft's toll-free XBox support hotline at 800-4MY-XBOX (800-469-9269), or you can always request service through the XBox website:

Hope this helps you out.

Three red lights


three red lights (no error message) - two reasons for the red lights: hardware failure or power supply unit failure.

when the three red lights is showing check the light on the power supply unit. if the light is green you console is experiencing a hardware failure. you need to send the console to MS service center or if you have no MS support in your country look for someone who knows how to repair the console or go to xbox-scene.com and look for information on how to repair the console yourself.

if the light is orange, red or no light at all, there might be a problem with the power supply unit. disconnect and reconnect the power cables from the 360 and reconnect them again. if there is an inter-cooler connected at the back of the console, remove the inter-cooler and turn on the console without the inter-cooler. try also a different wall socket and if the light on the power supply is still orange, red, or no light when you turn on the console you need to replace the power supply unit.
