How can I fix "Red ring of death" on my XBox 360


Three flashing red lights around the Xbox 360 power button (nicknamed the "Red Ring of Death" or "Red Lights of Death" or "Red Ring of Doom"), instead of the one to four green lights indicating normal operation, 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. These events may happen once or several times until the hardware failure occurs, or not at all. If the console freezes occasionally, the error will not necessarily follow. The technical problems seem to affect some generations of consoles more than others. e.g. Xbox 360 60GB 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. The 3 flashing lights can also be caused by power surges; if the console is connected to an outlet that receives a power surge, it may have a failure and the 3 lights will appear as long as the console is plugged into the outlet. Turning off the console, unplugging all power cables and plugging them back in, and restarting the console will fix the issue in this case. hope this helps

Xbox 360 elite has suddenly stopped working and doesnt light up


Hi,

check you have a light on the power Brick. Usually Orange On Standby.
Push power On Button, should turn green.
No Light At All Check Plugs Fuse.
Orange light On, but not turning on, or going to Green, power Up.
Suspect Faulty Power Supply Unit, Or Motherboard Fault.

My ps3 starts but wont go to the home menu. the green and blue lights are on but it just doesnt go to the home. it stays at a green screen with the wave going through it. i tried to hard reset and pulled...


You might need to Reset it fully, just turn it on so you see the red, than hold the power button until you hear a beep. Follow the instructions! if this doesnt work you can also try turning everything off for a day and turn it on! But the restarting one usually helps most poeple!

Xbox 360 power supply light turns yellow when xbox 360 is off (usually i think) and turns green when on, I've had one red ring on my xbox to,twice


make sure your xbox is in an open area where it can breathe, otherwise the one red ring means there is a hardware failure, if it is under warrenty send it back into xbox, otherwise there are some diy fixes on youtube

Beep 3 times turns green yellow then blinks red then turns to a solid red wont turn on wont give me game


3 Solid Red lights usually means that a cable is unplugged. Check all cables (unplug and plug back in)...you may need to replace power cable if issue is still ocurring. If it is 3 Flashing red lights, this is known as the Red Rings of Death, i.e. your XBOX is dead and needs to be completely replaced.

XBOX SHUTS OFF.


You could have a faulty power supply. Have you checked to make sure everything is hooked up properly? When you turn your xbox on have a look at the light on the power brick, its usually green when its working fine and orange when the xbox is turned off, if its red there could be a problem with it.

Hope this helps
