When i turn on my xbox360 the ring of light comes up fully red no green what so ever and it won't let me go onto the dashboard it comes up that i need to contact xbox customer support at www.xbox.com/


When my Xbox had the red rings of death, I tried a number of options, however the only thing that worked was bringing it in for repairs. If you have not taken the Xbox apart the warranty is valid and Microsoft will fix it for free.

To many problems in less then ten minutes


3 red lights on the Xbox 360 is the most common error and it means "General Hardware failure. To fix this you need to stop the amount of heat that the GPU and the CPU is taking.

To do this you can use the recommended guide that has been on the market for 3 years or you can send it in.

The freeze ups happen just before the red lights.

Three red lights flashing


If this is your Xbox 360 console you are referring to, then you need a repair. If you are under your 3 year warranty from MS go to www.xbox.com/support to fill out a repair request, otherwise look for someone in your area that has experience repairing the Red Ring of Death.

It freezes when you turn it on and shuts off. and when you try to turn it back on, instead of the green ring a red ring surrounds the xbox symbol.


It sounds like the RROD. If your XBOX360 is still under warranty, you can call Microsoft and they'll fix it. If not, you can either ship your XBOX off to be fixed by Microsoft or another company or try fixing it yourself. I fixed my red ring of death with a clamp fix (http://www.llamma.com/xbox360/repair/ring_of_light_x-clamp_fix.htm)

Rings of death


the "3 rings of death" or the so called "3 red lights" is actually caused by GPU overheating and mainboard flexing. When you need to do is open your xbox360 (warning, this will void your warranty) add more cooling fan inside your xbox360, you'd want to use 80mm fans coz they fit perfectly. you can fit up to two 80mm fans inside your xbox360.

Also, if you notice that your xbox360's mainboard is warped you need to fix this by disconnecting all the connections from the board. then place the board on a flat surface. then use a hair drier to heat the board and flat it out. its kinda complicated. hehe, at least you now have an idea on whats causing the 3 red lights...

If you only have two red lights that means your xbox is overheated I had this trouble and took mine out to the air compresser and blew massive dust out of it,It's been 2 months now no lights.
