How to Stop the Red Ring of Death on Xbox?


Hi Carolyn,
- notice poor game performance (if your games start taking a long time to load, or they become stutter or crash, it may be indicative of a looming hardware failure)
-notice poor system performance (if your system locks up, even when not playing games, this is a sign of hardware failing).
- understand the different light codes
Green-green lights indicate that console is powered and operating properly
1 red light-Hardware fault. Usually followed by E74 code on TV
2 red lights-overheating error. If the console becomes too hot, the system will shut down and display this light code
3 red lights-general hardware failure also known as the red ring of *****
4 red lights-AV cable isnt currently plugged in

If you do get red ring of *****:
- purchase a fix kit
-have console professionally fixed
-have console sent in to microsoft
-Prevent red ring of *****-understand what causes hardware failure
-keep your system in a well ventilated area
- avoid long gaming sessions
-keep system horizontal
-avoiding stacking items on xbox
-clean gaming area
-dust xbox

Whenever I play a game on my xbox, when it starts it doesn't recognize (the xbox 360) that it is a game, instead it reads that its a DVD, a movie, but its not its a video game, so please help me...


This is similar to a problem I have, the best thing to do is to keep openening and closing the disc tray untilll it reads. Otherwise, clean the disc

I changed out my xbox 360 dvd drive with 1 that had red ring cuz my dvd drive broke. and it worked but i can only play dvds and cds no games it says to put the disk in to an xbox 360. please help im going...


First make sure both drives are the same .
Find your old DVD drive and remove the P.C. board.
Then install it in the consoles drive that had red ringed

the drives pc board is married to the box and can not
be separated in order to recognize games and not get banned
on xbox live.

When I play 4x4 evo 2 on my xbox 360 it will not save or load


Rob B is totally wrong, it has nothing to do with your 360 over heating or going to have the Red Ring Of Death. I am having the same problem too. Some of the old xbox games are compatible with 360 but some have bugs that do in some case render them unable to play to optimal performance. Try switching your display settings, I have one game that won't play at all unless my display is at 480p

My xbox 360 has the 2 redlights on it how do I fix it


I had the same problem when playing the game, Crackdown, since this game uses the CPU and GPU (chips) very, very heavily. The 2 red lights mean that your system is overheating. Check the Microsoft site to see if your system is still under warranty. If so, call Microsoft and see if they can repair the known and admitted flaw(s) with the Xbox 360 and its cooling issues. You may need to have the "three red rings" issue to take advanage of this free repair though. If the system is out of warranty and you will have to pay to have it repaired by Microsoft, you might as well save a lot of money and do a similar cooling fix yourself. You can start by first searching Youtube for "Taking apart an Xbox 360", "How to fix your Xbox 360" and "Red Ring of Death". You may also be able to search Craigslist for people that will repair and upgrade your Xbox 360 for you, at about $30 to $50 or so.

In case someone is reading this post and having trouble only when playing the game Crackdown, note that this game plays heavily from the DVD and will have many loading issues and lock-ups if the DVD-ROM drive is bad or going bad. You can always test your game disc on another XBOX 360 to see if it is the disc or your system. Game stores will usually help you as well with testing a disc if you bring it in.
Also, try other intensive games to see if they load and play well. This will prove that your system is probably good, but that it most likely is the DVD-ROM drive that is failing.
If you have a game other than Crackdown that locks up, slows down, etc during DVD-ROM play, try copying that disc to the Xbox 360 hard drive and playing it from there to see if it still locks up or slows down as before. This will show you if the DVD-ROM drive is bad or if it is something else in the system.
Unfortunately, Crackdown can not be copied to the hard drive. This was planned by Microsoft. It is not allowed for some reason.

Original xbox


16 - dashboard - Clock cannot be set.
Basically it comes down to this. Error 16 has to do with not finding the menu setting with which you can set the clock of the hdd. This happens to a lot of people that erase their hdd (original/upgraded) or MS dashboard files and after that they don't immediatly install the hdd but leave the xbox without power longer than 5 hours.
It's all about the hdd can't find the menu with which it can set the clock. This is mostly because the xbox hdd is empty (you removed dashboard or fux0red it via ftp). The problem arises when xbox searches for menu to set clock with, can't find it and voila: error 16. Well read on please!
So you have an error 16 huh? Don't worry "nothing" is broken!
You have an xbox hdd that is locked. And normally you can boot in original and modded mode. Retail or upgraded doesn't matter. You start playing around with xboxdash.xbe etc. using ftp programs. While doing this you "accidently" remove your MS dashboard and also your alternate dashboard (Evox, etc.) so there is no dash anymore on the xbox hdd.
You end the ftp session and after that you shut off your xbox. Normally when you would start up again it gives you an error 13/14 ( no dashboard found). No worries with a slayer Evox cd (and a hardmod), all is ok. BUT this is only WITHIN 3 hours or so.
This is because the internal clock of the xbox will only be kept alive by the capacitors for only 3 or 4 hours. So when you leave your xbox unplugged from electricity for over 5 hours after you have played with the .xbe's AND you have removed your (ms and evo-x) dash from your xbox than you are fux0red. Why do you ask?
Why can't I boot from disc?
Its as follows Xbox starts booting==> (almost 1st thing a xbox does is) searches for internal clock==> doesnt find internal clock because there hasn't been any electricity on the xbox for 5 hours so battery that kept clock alive is empty and clock is gone==> searches for the proper dashboard menu to set clock with ==> doesnt find msdashboard or evo-x dashboard menu becuz you have removed it from the hdd for whatever reasons you had==> xbox gives error 16: cannot set clock.
So what do you do about it? Two options!
1. There are some bios'es around that allow the chip to boot past the clocksetting. (do a search!). So how do you get that bios on your chip because you cant boot to a flash program or something? Well you need to have an external flasher.
It seems the m8 bios will take care for you of booting past the clocksetting. Or use the latest Xecutor bios
2. This is the more easy and newbie friendly strategy
-Get a friend with a modded xbox.
-Unlock his hdd with eeprom management from a slayer evo-x cd.
-Than, place his hdd in your xbox.
-Boot with your chip on.
-Now the xbox DOES find a dashboard when you boot in original mode and you can set the time in the msdashboard clock settings.
-Shut off xbox and remove your friends hdd
-PLace his hdd back in his xbox and lock it again
-Install your hdd
-(clock has been set) So boot up with slayer cd.
-Install normally whatever you wanna install
-lock hdd

If you get an error 13 after this, please read up on the error 13 explanation!
13 - kernel - Dashboard launch fail (due to missing/bad key, or anything else that would prevent it from running) and the dashboard didn't specify why it failed.

The error it gives is because of the incompatibility between the (older) dashboard (4920) that older slayer cd installs and the new dashboard/kernel versions found in some new xbox's and found in xbox's that have been connected to xbox live (when you go on xbox-live, it'll upgrade your dashboard file to i believe it is now 5659.03. This dasboard is incompatible with the dash that (old) slayer cd installs (for example 2.5 or lower) for you.

(In detail, in the eeprom chip there is a kernel which is incompatible with the dashboard (4920) that slayer installs.)

So what do you do to fix it? You can use the dashupdate found on most new xbox games! Be sure to 1st unplug your ethernet cable before you do so!!!

Besides that, just use a good installation disc and all is fine. Use a 2.6 slayer or something similar
