If you have the replacement plan at Best Buy just go there and get it fixed other wise you have to send it in to Microsoft and it will take them 2 or more weeks to fix it.

Hey cozierterry,

While this may be an indicator that something is wrong with your Xbox 360, there are a couple of things that you may want to consider before seeking additional assistance.

According to information provided by the manufacturer, the light on your Xbox 360's power supply should still light up green even when the console has encountered a three red light problem. If the light on the power supply isn't green, you will want to take different actions based on what color is displayed. If this light is red, the AC adaptor may either be defective or has recently overheated. If the light is orange, you may need to double-check all cable connections are secure. If the light on the AC adaptor isn't lit, the AC adaptor may need to be replaced.

Alternatively, you may want to try turning the Xbox 360 off, then pressing the power button again roughly 10-15 seconds later. If the unit powers on normally and the three red lights disappear, the system may simply have needed to be reset.

Should the problem persist however, you may need to speak directly with Microsoft for further assistance, as three red lights often indicate a hardware failure that requires repairs. You can reach Microsoft's toll-free Xbox support hotline at 800-4MY-XBOX (800-469-9269), or you can always request service through the Xbox website:

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

SOURCE: xbox 360

I just fixed my Xbox360 3 RROD error by removing the heat sinks and reflowing the solder on both the CPU and GPU by using a heat gun and aluminum foil.

1. Remove the XClips and heatsinks.
2. Get some foil and press it around the GPU and CPU chips. This is to protect other SMT devices from getting blown away when the solder melts. I covered about half the PCB surrounding the chips.
3. Cut out a square hole for the chip you are working on, I used my fingernail. Give about an 1/16 inch gap all around the chip for heat to get under the chip but not on the caps etc on the PC board.
4. Run the heat gun all around the edges of the chip, trying not to overheat the silicon chip itself or the caps and resistors on the chip.
5. While heating the chip, I used a thin piece of solder near the chip to guage when it was hot enough to flow the solder (dont let this piece get onto anything when it melts) move all around the edges, aiming at a 45 degree angle into the chip.
6. Clean off the old heat sink compound off of the chips and heatsink and replace.
7. Reassemble the heatsinks, put the XClips back on (no I did not modify anything).
8, To do a quick test, plug in the power switch PCB, the fans, video and power. See if it works, shut it off as soon as you get the spinning green lights (it will overheat quickly without proper cooling giving the two vertical red light error).

I CAN FIX IT! There are links that show you how to repair this issue yourself (but they are not very clear and every thing is very fragile inside the XBOX 360) or you can contact me via reply on here and we can discuss the issue further as I recently repaired my XBOX 360 with the same issues and it works better than when was brand new. It is a heat sync problem that has to be repaired by someone with indepth electronics knowledge. THERE ARE OTHER EASIER ISSUE TO REPAIR I JUST NEED MORE SPECIFICS AS TO PROBLEMS EXPERIENCED. try this link as well http://www.zimbio.com/Xbox+360/articles/332/One+Light+Two+Lights+Three+Lights+More

Red light come on xbox360 what is the problem


If you get red light around your xbox power button the you have red ring of death. This is when your Xbox has overheated. While im not all that famlier with Xbox I have read there is a 6 cent fix (cause you use 6 pennies) You would have to read up because as I sid before not great with Xbox. I'm sure microsoft would do it to but hey if you good with tools 6 cents sounds pretty cheap.
Im sorry for your loss

My xbox 360 has 2 red lights


  1. Let your Xbox 360 console cool. You may have to wait several hours for your console to cool enough. Don't turn on your Xbox 360 console when the console is hot.
  2. Verify that your Xbox 360 console has enough ventilation and that the fans are operating. For more information about ventilation, see the "More Information" section.
  3. If the two lights continue to flash red after you try steps 1 and 2, contact Xbox Customer Support.

Xbox 360 3 red lights can anyone please help?


That has absolutely nothing to do with the Hard drive. The red ring of death is a standard misfunction with the Xbox 360. You will have to contact your local game stores to see if they do Red ring of death fixes, send it in to microsoft, or attempt to red ring fix it yourself.
