You got the ring of death.. either send it in, or get a towel wet.. ring it out till its just damp, and wrap it around your xbox to cover all but the front and back..this melts the saughter back together.. leave it on over night and it should go away.. it worked for me.. it takes a while but worth it.. after the red goes away you must leave your xbox on..

Thanks for your question. To fix the 3 red lights what you will need to do is stop the heat getting to the GPU and the CPU and to do this you can use a good Xbox 360 Repair guide or of course you can send it in to microsoft.

Red light on xbox 360 adaptor


Under the power brick there is a description for what the lights mean.
Red means there is a fault with the power brick.

Here is a great guide on what to do:
http://www.thetechedition.com/xbox-360-repair-meaning-of-the-red-power-supply-light/

To run you through:
If the power brick is too hot, let i coll down then try again.

If the plug is connected into an extension cord, surge protector etc.. it might be reducing the voltage so plug it into its own socket.

If those dont work you might need to get a replacement adaptor failing that it could be a problem with the console itself but unlikely.

Xbox 360 elite showing no picture on screen...?? Have tried both HDMI and composite cables. Any suggestions


If the console turns on (you hear fans running and the ring of light is lit), possible issues may be:
1. TV is not on the correct input setting.
2. Graphics card failure (If under warranty, you should be able to send the console to Xbox for refurbishing).
3. Other hardware/software failure.

If the console doesn't turn on (No fans or lights), check the following:
1. Is the power brick plugged into a wall socket?
2. Is the Xbox plugged into the power brick?
3. Is the power brick LED lit? (If you answer no to this, the power brick is likely the problem.)

The power brick on my xbox 360 is red and is not overheating yet i smaell burning plastic from my xbox 360 console anyone have any tips?


A red light on the xbox 360 power brick usually indicates the Xbox 360 console has a short circuit. Here is how to be sure:

1. Try unplugging the power brick from the wall and from the xbox 360.
2. Wait about 30 seconds and plug the power brick into the wall power outlet.
3. Make sure the indicator light on the power brick is orange. ( If it's not orange then get yourself a new power brick and try again ).
4. Plug the power brick into the Xbox 360 console and try to power it on.
If your power brick turns red or you get an immediate three red ring error than you will need to have the console professionally repaired.
If your warranty with Microsoft has expired; the company I work for GATpro Repairs offers this service at a low flat rate and we pay for the return shipping.
Good Luck and I hope this has helped!

Red light on elite adaptor


Simply put the power brick is malfunctioning. It needs to be replaced. There really isn't any other solution I can think of. If the light turns red, it means it is getting power but having an issue.

WTF this morning i plugged in my 360 and it just made a hum sound and the thing doesnt turn ON ! LIKE not even A LIGHT , i cant tell if the power brick light is orange or red it worked fine like 5 hours...


yes that is a complete possibility. Ensure that the xbox power brick is not flashing red and is just on the standby orange color. Id recommend calling the people http://www.360-pros.com where you can get your xbox fixed for 60-100 dollars. I have used them before and found there work to be excellent and reliable. They fix all problems as i have seen many xbox's that have stopped working (mainly halo and older elite editions) not RROD either. If its broke they will fix it :).



first though some trouble shooting.


ensure that all cables are properly plugged in. video and power.

Power brick colour


Alright, lets fix this!
 Xbox 360 power supply light is orange or yellow.
Usually when the Xbox 360 power supply light is orange it's on standby so there is no problem with your Xbox 360 console but the power supply can't supply it with power !

First you have to try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console & unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet also unplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord, wait for a minute then reconnect it all back , also try it on another wall outlet without any extension cords at all.
If it's still doing the same it will be definitely a fault with the Xbox 360 power supply.
So, in this case please contact Xbox 360 customer support to fulfill the Xbox 360 power supply.

Xbox 360 power supply light is red.
There is something wrong with the Xbox 360 power supply connection so try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console & unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet also unplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord, wait for minute then reconnect it all back , also try it on another wall outlet without any extension cord at all.

If it's still red that would be for sure a fault with the Xbox 360 power supply .
So, then contact Xbox 360 customer support to fulfill your Xbox 360 power supply .



You can also find replacement power cords many places online. See if you can get your hands on another cord and try that to see if its the current power cord.
Hope this helps you out! Please don't forget to rate :)
