Hey steph 1,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, you may see one flashing red light on your Xbox console if there has been some kind of hardware failure. This failure may have occurred in the console itself or an external accessory, so it's recommended that you disconnect all accessories - including your controllers, hard drive and memory units - then restart the console to see if the problem persists. If disconnecting all of these external devices resolves the problem, then the hardware failure is with one of those accessories.

Please keep in mind that this only applies if there was no error message accompanying the flashing red light. If a numbered error message also appears, you may wish to refer to Microsoft's online support database for more information:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/907536/

There you should be able to find links to pages with troubleshooting steps you can take for the most frequently encountered error messages. Additionally, remember that you can always contact Microsoft directly at their toll-free hotline for further assistance: 800-4-MY-XBOX (800-469-9269).

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

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.).

1 red and 3 amber lights flashing after stopping and goes around in circle on a jazzy 1121 powerchair


The number of lights that are blinking indicate what the problem is. Visit this site to locate the type on controller on your power chair and you will be able to see that the blinking lights mean:

Try to reset your manual brake release as this is a common problem.
The powerchair going in circles may indicate a motor is bad and needs to be replaced.
If you continue to have a problem, contact your manufacturer or dealer for service. If your insurance purchased they power chair for you, they may also cover the cost of repairs.
Good luck!

Cannot open the disk and cannot read the disk as well. The green light at the center of the ring always blinking


Hello
If you only get a flashing green light on the center while you turn on the console. You should get a green light going in a circle around the center light, (the 4 other lights, that can turn red as well (famous Red Ring of death))
if you don't get any red or green lights around the flashing center ring, then the console is not able to turn on / boot up properly and is in need of repairs, check the powersupply led, what color is it? it should be green when you power on and orange when not in use.

The on button keeps flashing and the red light stays on


Try resetting your Canon PIXMA. Here's how:

  1. Turn the printer off.
  2. Hold the button Resume / Cancel (red triangle in the circle), click POWER - indicator lights green.
  3. Release the button Resume / Cancel, keeping POWER.
  4. Click Resume / Cancel 2 times, keeping POWER, and then release all the buttons.
  5. When the indicator light Green - click Resume / Cancel 4 times!
  6. Turn the printer off button POWER.
Have a good evening!

My xbox360 has a red circle instead of a green circle theirfore will not work what can this be


Three flashing red lights around the Xbox 360 power button (nicknamed the "Red Ring of Death"), represent an internal problem that requires service. Warning signs may include freeze-ups, graphical problems in the middle of gameplay, such as checkerboard or pinstripe patterns on the screen, and sound errors, and the console only responds to pressing the power button to turn it off.

This error code is usually caused by failure of one or more hardware components, although it can indicate that the console is not receiving enough power from the power supply, which can either be due to a faulty power supply or if the power supply cable is not fully inserted into the console.


Distinct from the General Hardware Failure is a similar-looking error warning where four red lights appear, in which case the console does not detect an AV cable is plugged in. The four lights can sometimes also be seen when power surges or very brief power outages occur while the console is running, in which the console needs to be unplugged and plugged back in again to reset the error. Two red lights appear when the system is overheated.

Backs up spins in circles, then red light flashes and beeps


Sounds like either the battery is bad or not being charged properly with subsequent loss of programming.

My TOMTOM xl 330 gps navigation system wont quit flashing a red circle and white "X" in the circle. Even after i soft reset it, power off then back on, and even plug it in to the computer for a few minutes...


The flashing red circle with the X is a result of the unit becoming disconnected before all data was sent to the device. TomTom has a solution for it on their website here
