Xbox 360 Red Rings

I bought the xbox 360 with a warranty less than a year ago so it should still cover it. I am wondering if the warranty covers my xbox 360 with the red rings and if so what do I do and what should I expect?

I have a xbox 360 that i got through bell 3 years ago.. Last week it got 3 red rings of death what should i do to get my 360 fixed??

Check out the xbox website and use the warranty verification tool to see if it is still under warranty. I believe the consoles with three red rings get an additional couple of years under warranty...

My sons xbox just got red rings instead of green. Are we doomed.?

Make sure everything is connected & if U R still stuck with the RROD. If your warranty period has expired,I would just go buy a used one from game stop and pay $10.00 for the year warranty. my orginal xbox lasted around 5 years before I got the rrod. I bought a used one at gamestop for about 50-60 dollars but they are only covered for 30 days. so one would be stupid to not pay 10 dollars for a year warranty. My first one did not last long but what was cool is when they repaced it the year warranty started from there now. I still have it and it works great & I have the 360 and knock on wood that I've had no probs with it but I noticed with both xboxes that I would get that red ring when something was not connected?

I get red rings when i turn on my xbox 360

3 Blinking red lights often means that your Xbox 360 has suffered from hardware failure.

4 Blinking red lights means that your Audio / Video cable is not correctly connected (it's the colorful one; Red, white, yellow; green, blue, red if Component)

If it IS just three lights, and you bought your xbox 360 under three years ago, call 1-800-4MY-XBOX

Xbox 360 3 Red rings of death

3 lights - hardware problem. I've seen repair instructions being sold on ebay.

But if you have warranty, you can get it repaired for free by microsoft.

let me know if you got any other questions before rateing the solution.

and if you do try to fix it yourself, or you've voided the warranty ( by already opening it) make sure you DON"T do the " towel Fix " it will only make things worse. you need to do an X Clamp repair. It's simple. I had no experiance whatsoever.with electronics. and I was able to figure it out the first time I tried it. I did it three weeks ago and my X box is quieter than ever and it works fine. so serach on you tube " X Box 360 X clamp fix " and you should see what you need to fix your problem.
