It's nothing bad it's just a nifty way of telling you the cords aren't plugged in, if the AV cables are unplugged for whatever reason and you turn on your console and don't see anything on the screen you won't know whats wrong, i nfact you might think your xbox is broken so the console lights up 1 red ring or more depending on problem to let the owner know something is wrong or in this case unplugged.

When i turn on my xbox i'm getting 3 flashing red lights what does this mean

it means your xbox is overheating, you can send it back as they extended the warranty on it for this common fault unless you have modified it, in which case look up ring of death on youtube.

One light flashes red on xbox 360

Got answer from WikiAnswers give credit!
Meaning of Red Light on xbox 360 Is this the Ring of Death?
No, either you have one of your cords unplugged, such as the RCAjacks, or some other hardware issue that probably isn't as serious as one you would have with the 3 light ring of death.

How to fix it.
Since it's just one light in the red ring, you may be in luck. Most times, this error can be resolved by powering off your xbox, unplugging it from the back, then unplugging the power brick. Plug them all back in and power the box back up. If this doesn't take care of the problem, microsoft also suggests taking the harddrive out and putting it back in.

If all else fails.
It may be time to contact Microsoft support. Hopefully you can save you info. Goodluck.

My xbox had the 1 red ring (e74) but now has 3 red rings. We repaired the x clamps but now when we turn it on, the light on the power cord turns green but then goes back to orange even though it's on. We...

only known fix for the three rings is to send it in to microsoft for a new after they have examined it to make sure it has not been tampered with or other means of voiding the warranty

I have a red ring flashing on my console

This red ring flashing on your Xbox 360 can represent two things.

If there are 4 parts of the ring that are red, it could just be caused by a cord not fully plugged in. Please make sure you have every cable securely plugged into the back of the Xbox 360.

If there is 3 parts of the ring that are red, this is called the Ring Of Death. It is a Hardware or Power Supply Failure with the 360 which leaves the system totally useless. There is a solution to getting your 360 fixed.

Please contact Microsoft and send your Xbox to be fixed. There should be no problems with them taking your 360, and everything should be covered, or you may be able to bring it into where you purchased it, and get the Xbox exchanged, or they will send it to Microsoft for you.

Hope this helps ^^. Please dont forget to rate, Thanks

Problem of red light flashing

I saw a 360 do the same red ring one time when the power cord wasn't completely plugged in to the back of the console. Check and make sure all of your connections are good and tight. I hope this helps.
