You can't just remove the 2 x clamps, you need something to hold the heatsink down. Get yourself some m5 screws and washers and screw it down to hold the headsink, cpu and the board together.

Two red lights on x box


continual long period playing can cause the console flash the 2 red lights? it indicates your console has gotten overheated. The damaged graphics card is another reason for the blinking of 2 red lights on your Xbox 360. This damage happens due to the overheating which is the main culprit behind all the errors and damage to your Xbox 360 console. there are some preventives that should be followed to avoid the 2 red light error occurrence on your 360 Xbox console.
Be careful that none of the ventilation panels are blocked.
Your Xbox 360 is resting on a hard surface, not a soft cloth, bed, sofa surface.
Your Xbox 360 should not be placed near any source of heat.
Your Xbox 360 should be placed in an open location, not confined to a small place.
Getting rid of the 2 red light error is not a very difficult task. You can fix your Xbox 360 console removing the 2 red light error by your own without sending the console to the Microsoft service center and save your dollars and valuable time being spared unnecessarily. For this you need not to have any exceptional knowledge in electronics, and also it is not necessary to have specific, fancy instruments to handle the console for repairing.
The need is to have a professional guide that will give you step by step and detailed information with necessary quality video instructions. While choosing the guide, please be sure that the guide should have minimum cost with money back guarantee. also make sure it is for all errors because some only give solutions to the 3 red lights (red ring of death)
hope this helps

X box game wont come on. red light flashing


if all four lights are red your av cable or hdmi is loose. if its 3 red lights this is the red ring of death (RROD) and it needs repair. microsoft has a 3year warrenty for this problem. what happens is the console gets hot and the "x" clamps holding the heat syncs to the chips bends the motherboard and causes the CPU or GPU to come loose enough to where they aren't making proper contact with the board. I've fixed several of these including 2 of my own. what you do is take it apart, remove the clamps and the heat syncs. clean the chips. apply new thernal paste and replace the problem causing clamps with screws and washers. plug in the xbox with out the fan hooked up for about 3-5 minutes until you see 2 red lights flashing which indicated the console is ovrheating, let it overheat for 2 minutes unplug it and tighten the screws. the overheating of the console softens the solder on the chips and allows you to tighten the back into place.

This is the video I watched to learn the process. Its part 1 of 9 i think">

I have 2 red rings on my xbox 360 but i dont understand what they mean...


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.

I have to red lights after about ten mins on the xbox 360 and it?


I haven't got an Xbox Myself but I hear that the red lights mean the console has overheated and its a failsafe to prevent damage. It was something ALOT of people got. Also known by gamers as the "RRoD" Or 'Red Ring Of Death". Microsoft released an open letter giving a public warrenty extension to 3 years.... Basically send it back to where you got it under warrenty for the reason of
"General Hardware Failure" and you SHOULD reseave a new one. Sorry if this isn't what you wanted to hear.
Hope it helps!

3 red lights on xbox360 and screen problems


Hi there!

The three flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with your Xbox 360 console. The main thing that causes the 3 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 3 red lights. Even before you get the 3 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 3 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.

Cheers!

RED lights flashing


This is going to sound like a very strange solution, but it worked for me, twice. My xbox 360 gave me the red ring of death once, and in my despair I asked a few friends about anything they can think of, and one suggested letting it run for 10 minutes while wrapped in a towel, or blanket. By that point I was desperate enough to try it (I had bought a refurbished one, so it wasn't under warranty anymore), and lo and behold, my xbox 360 is as good as new. Basically what you're doing is shocking the system into working via overheating... I know that doesn't make much sense, but, like I said before, it worked twice for me. Hope this helps!

Flashing lights


I'm not sure, but it sounds like the 360 is overheating. The 3 red rings is general hardware failure which usually implies that the solder has melted and the 360 can no longer detect the ram.
My solution would be to send it back to microsoft, However if you wanted to fix it yourself, there is always sticking spacers (I suggest 3 pennies) to the ram chips located on the bottom of the motherboard. Also remove the X clamps and replace the thermal paste with arctic silver.
