What's the difference between a xbox 360 over heating and the rrod


There are 4 different kinds of RROD on a xbox 360. When the ring of light shows 1 red light, it means there is a minor hardware issue. If it shows 2 red lights, it means it over heated. If it shows 3, it has a major hardware failure and 4 red lights means that you dont have your A/V cables plugged in. Hope this helps.

After playing 15 minutes two red lights flash and xbox shuts down


the xbox 360 is overheating. Try to clean the vents and have it elevated off carpet or anyhtign that will not allow it to get a airflow.

Check the fans in the back of the 360 to be sure they are running ok and not blocked up.

Xbox 360 e74 error


Having the e-74 code is when the video chip on the 360 over heats and becomes un soldered your best bet is to turn the 360 on with a towel over it and wait for 3 red lights the call microsoft and tell them the 3 lights issue dont mention the 1 light or it will cost you dearly around 150$

I have 2 red rings on my xbox 360 but i dont understand what they mean...


The 2 flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with your Xbox 360 console. The main thing that causes the 2 red lights to start flashing is because of overheating and as the motherboard within the console takes more heat it actually warps and bends until the solders become loose.

Once this happens you will receive the 2 red lights. Even before you get the 2 red lights you may have noticed your games freezing and this is caused in the same way, by overheating. As the chips take more heat they shut off to prevent lasting damage, although they can only do this a number of times until you get the Xbox 360 2 Red Lights.

To fix the problem you need to stop the level of heat the motherboard takes and you can do this in a number of ways, but it will involve opening up your Xbox and working on it. In addition, you could always send your Xbox back to Microsoft as they are offering free repair for this error, you will just need to wait 3-4 weeks that's all.

There is one more option available in the form of DIY Video Guide, that will explain you step by step approach to fix red ring of death within one hour without any technical knowledge.

Help.. My xbox has 3 reds lights


Hello.
This is a common problem from the Xbox 360.

The only way to fix this problem is to call Microsoft or email them. Its something to do with the hardware failure. Its over heated. Their is one way to fix it but temporary.
Its called the towel trick.

First, Unplug your xbox.
Then wrap it around with Heavy towels dont expose anything on the xbox 360. Cover everything.
Then plug in the xbox 360 while the towels are around it. After you do all that you wait 15 minutes. Then unwrap the towel from the xbox 360. It should be very hot. Let it cool down for 2 minutes then plug everything in and it should work.
But I hope this helps you.

Good luck!

Xbox360 3 flashing red lights


Google up the red ring of death. Its a common over-heating problem on Xbox 360s. There are various solutions to this problem. The most recommended one is to take your console to Microsoft to get it checked. If you dont have an xbox 360 representative in your country as is my case, the second best solution is to buy a new 360 which comes more "prepared" for this issue. If you dont feel like spending 400 dolars on a newer model of the 360 then you should try some of the alternative temporary fixes. Most fixes have been reported as temporary, although if you are lucky maybe your Xbox 360 will last a long time fixed.

Basically solutions require to void your guarantee. Any fix which requires you to open your Xbox (the thermal-paste and the rubber fixes, etc (i will post link at end of comment)) will automatically void the guarantee. Theres a temporary solution which almost always works which is to wrap your xbox into towels without the hard drive and cables, only the power cable pluged in, and the console turned on. It will heat up and after 10 or 15 minutes unwrap it, let it cool down and you'll be playing in no time. Although this is definitely not recommended as you will be over-heating lots of components which are working well and could damage them. Well, hope this link works and saves you money. http://www.fixya.com/support/t142158-3_flashing_red_lights
