Here is a video on youtube on a way to fix it

There is also the "towel trick" (which should only be used as a last resort). I would not recommend this but this is what I'm talking about.

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

My game plays for a min then frezers and gives me the 3 red rings


the red rings can be fixed in 2 different ways.
1) take all cords out except power corad and wrap it in thick DRY towl. then turn it on and let it overheat, this works 85-95% of the time.
2) send it in the console(you need the reciept)
and get it fixed/replaced.

NOTE:you can try both, if 1 doesnt work you can always do 2

I have 2 red rings and its cooled down what do i do?


this signals hardware failure, and you need to call microsoft and have them send you a box to ship the 360 in so they can fix it. if it's still under warranty, it should be free.

3 flashing red lights


Im sorry to hear and tell you this...

You must know that that is a issue called the Red Ring of Death and is only fixed getting it sent into Microsoft. If it is no more than 2 to 3 years old you will be able to have it fixed for free.

Games keep freezing


You might possibly have to much memory on it. Or of course, it COULD have just gotten the Sony version of the 360's red ring of death. This will sound really simple, but you probably should call Sony's support and see what they say. Also check in the disc slot to make sure nothing is blocking the disc. You could get a cheap fan to stay on while you're playing b/c many times game consoles just wear out. My best guess would be that their is something where it souldn't be. You might also try playing with a different controller. Game systems can be really unpredictable b/c they require so much human interaction that they aren't always ready for.

Game freezes during game play


Your Xbox is probably overheating, it just may not overheat to the point where it red rings. I would suggest red ring fixing it, and post results if you try it.

Two red rings


The 2 flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with your Xbox 360 console. The main thing that causes the 2 red lights to start flashing is because of overheating and as the motherboard within the console takes more heat it actually warps and bends until the solders become loose.

Once this happens you will receive the 2 red lights. Even before you get the 2 red lights you may have noticed your games freezing and this is caused in the same way, by overheating. As the chips take more heat they shut off to prevent lasting damage, although they can only do this a number of times until you get the Xbox 360 2 Red Lights.

To fix the problem you need to stop the level of heat the motherboard takes and you can do this in a number of ways, but it will involve opening up your Xbox and working on it. In addition, you could always send your Xbox back to Microsoft as they are offering free repair for this error, you will just need to wait 3-4 weeks that's all.

There is one more option available in the form of DIY Video Guide, that will explain you step by step approach to fix red ring of death within one hour without any technical knowledge.

3 red rings


this is a pretty common problem in the xbox 360 world...from the time of purchase, you have a 3 year service coverage from the 3 red rings...you just have to call 1-800-my-xbox and tell them your issue and as long as you fall under that 3 year service, they will ship you a shipping box and repair the unit for free.
