i had this problem before because my xbox 360 was old, but this fix is only if ur out of warranty because it involves you openning up your xbox 360. It also isnt the case if your xbox 360 isnt very old, it probably means ur fans are finished. Well, back to the solution you take apart your xbox 360, just do a google search on how to dissasemble your xbox 360 if you already dont know how to do so. Just take off all the covers until you see this
then just get and air compressor or something to blow all of the dust out. i did it for mine and it never happened ever again. Enjoy.
It's not your fans that's causing the problem. It's the XBOX itself. The Xboxes generally overheat and this has been a big problem for Microsoft. Alot of companies are actually reflowing these system, reheating the solder under the chips allowing them to connect back down to the points on the board.
You will need your system reflowed. Contact a repair shop.
Yes you can fix it. Four red lights on is an indication that the video cable is not plugged into the console. I suggest you check and see if the pins in the cable and unit are not damaged and the cable is fully in the AV port. If all is well, than borrow another cable from a friend and try it in your console or try yours in theirs.
hey there re some videos on you tube , they say to rap the Xbox 360 in 6-7 towels where it will overheat leave it for 15 min ON then uncover TURN OFF and let it sit for 10 min, turn on and it should work, i had to wait all night for mine to work again, THIS IS A TEMPORARY FIX, to permenentaly fix the red ring of death you need to take the whole thing apart and put electical tapped pennies in certaint areas, like i said look on youtube, youtube has every thin EVERYTHING
There is not a fix without taking it apart.... Any game store in Nashville could fix it... It is a problem with overheating in the xbox... they will have to take it apart and do whats called an "x-clamp fix" it makes it so the GPU and CPU doesn't get so hot... Please Rate answer.!. Good luck! :D
usually the flashin 4 red lights is an indiction that your AV cables are not hooked up. Sounds like you have a hardware issue that needs to be looked at. You can always pull it apart and do the heat gun trick on the motherboard... but if your not comfortable doing that i would send it in or find someone who can fix it. Chances are, a solder joint failed with your A/V port.
Try using different AV cables if it works you need new cables. Chances are you will still have RROD after.
Hey Jay- There is a plastic disc that sits on the centre of the drive inside the box, this disc has a magnet in it that is supposed to hold the game cd in place. What's happened is the plastic has become dislodged from the computer drive and is not the magnet portion is stuck to the drive housing (also metal).
You need to open up the game console, remove the drive and the drive cover and get that plastic disc out of it's holding plate. Once out, you just reinsert the drive (without the cover) and set the disc on top of the game cd-give the game a spin or two with your fingers and it should start up....problem fixed
If you search on Youtube you can see a repair video for this. It takes time, and you have to tear apart the game to get at this puppy. I've since fixed mine and left the plastic game housing off as well, so as to get rid of the overheating problem.
Hey Tafari, It's an overheating issue that is common in xbox 360 models made between a certain date range. I had the same problem a few months ago.
All you gotta do is contact Microsoft tech support and provide them with your serial number. They'll ask you a couple of questions and then they'll get you to ship them the 360. (They pay for shipping)
They'll try to repair it, but if your lucky like me, you might get a new xbox 360 with 1 month of xbox live for free.
Hope this helps. Worked for me, should work for you.
