XBox 360 does not work. Red ring around the start button.


You have what is called the "red ring of death." This was a huge problem with the 360 when they first came out. Essentially, your box overheated and died. If it is still under warranty, you can call support and tell them what the problem is and they will most likely replace it. Otherwise, it's time for a new box. Sorry

1 red light is E74 and 4 red lights is the av cable.

For the 1, 2, 3, red lights you will need to get it fixed you can either send it in to do this or repair it yourself

Red lights showing box freezes


This is known as the "red ring of death." You need to contact Microsoft and tell them you have this problem and they will send you a box to ship it back to them. The process usually takes about 6 weeks to resolve. I had this problem twice with my 360. It usually helps to have good air circulation around the Xbox.

Xbox360 red 3 lights on front of console.


You have the proverbial "Red Ring of Death"

Your X-box has encountered a critical error and must be sent to Microsoft for repair.

Good luck man, my friend had to send his back twice before it finally started working right.

My x box freezes


When it freezes, do you have to restart it? If you do, that usually means the three red lights are around the corner- I have experience.
