When someone say that his/her Xbox is having 3 red lights problem, It means it needs to be repaired. If you are using Cooler than it is not a cure but a prevention. You could have used cooler before acutally having the problem just to prevent your Xbox. But now you will have to either get it repaired from Microsoft (in case your Xbox's warranty is not expired, but one thing to note is that you will have to wait for at least 3-4 weeks to get back your Xbox) or you can Fix your Xbox's 3 Flashing red lights problem yourself with the help of DIY Video guide available on Internet. You can fix yourself without any technical knowledge.

My old x box console has a blinking red light above the power button. Is this also the so called "ring of fire"? Thanks


No, this light often occurs when an av cable is not properly connected. The red ring of death occurs with the xbox 360.

My Xbox 360 (which is around 18 months old) wont connect to the controllers anymore. I have tried 2 normal controllers and 2 GH guitars, none with succes. Xbox resetted, batteries taken in and out,...


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 email at mycharminglife@gmail.com 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. It takes and electronics engineer to repair properly.

Trying to turn xbox on and getting blinking red ring around power button


This problem is often called the Red ring of Death.

It's actually very common and is caused by a hardware malfunction that causes the system to overheat.

There are 2 ways to fix this problem: 1) Send it to Microsoft (if your warranty is expired it will cost $110)

2) Fix it at home by taking the system apart and repairing the malfunction. This can be daunting, but is actually easier than it sounds. I recommend having a look at these 2 sites:

The discs are not reading and the console says to put in a 360 disc which is what they are!


is there a red ring around the power button? if so then there is a fault in the machine. This is formally known as the "red ring of death" see wiki for ways around it;

Won't load game keeps blinkng red light


If the XBOX 360 is blinking the color RED in three of the four quarter of the ring around the power button, you will have to contact Microsoft for a replacement. This is what is known as "Red Ring of Death." You can find plenty of information on it if you Google it.

Click HERE for a video of the Red Ring of Death.

Click HERE for Microsoft's support system for the XBOX 360 and get in touch with Microsoft to get your replacement started.

It's the ONLY way.

Good luck.
