Hi there carl kalland

What to do when your xbox Has problems with flashing lights RROD/red rings of death.

You will need some simple repairs done on your XBOX as the GPU chip (Graphics) or the CPU chip (brain) or even both have lost connection to the motherboard Due to overheating.

Option 1

You can send this off to Microsoft if your still in warranty because it is included in there free fixes so they will do the collecting for you, fix it and return the Xbox to you, all for free, but it will take 4-6 weeks.

Option 2

If you are out of warranty its the same process as above but its $150 in cost

Option 3

What I recommend is a XBOX REPAIR GUIDE that will show you the simple steps yourself, you will be up and running again in less than an hour and the cost is far less than option 2 & 3

Good Luck

Panasonic TC-P50VT25 1 yr 3 month old powers off after 30 secs blinks 11 times pauses blinks 11 times and continues


The issue suggests either no voltage to that fan or it is bad--most of these all fans are powered from the same source.

I have seen this before---try swapping fans if they are identical--if another where you swap it now does not work--fan is bad.

Usually we (in the shop) if find this change all three fans.

Hitachi p50h401 the power light keeps flashing


If you have a flashing red light, try this first: The flashing red light is, according to the Hitachi service manual, an indication of exactly one problem. It is that the fan (internal, blows air over the power supply heat sinks) has failed. In my case, it failed by continuing to spin (very confusing), but put out a signal (3V on the white wire of the fan harness) that it has failed (I had to look up the data sheet on the fan to figure this out). A new fan from Arrow $10 fixed the problem. If you suspect your fan, spinning or not, you can safely short the white to the black wire to see if your TV remains on after being turned on (solid red light), and then try turning your TV on (blue light) to see if it works.

2 flashing red lights


Two flashing red lights means it has overheated. Maybee it does have alot of ventilation but the dust may have ecumulated to an amount that can not escape the system case. Clean it really well with a can of compressed air and make sure fan is running in the back. Some fans fail but continue to spin so if it looks to slow it probably is. You can watch you tubes tutorials about opening and cleaning your console. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

2 red lights fans don;t work


Hey Marsh2Man,


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.

Red light flashes four times


4 red light flashes normally means there is a problem with the fan. Time to make a service call.

Machine emits continuous high pitched bleep and power light flashes blue/red


If working OK, probably means that the temperature alarm goes off because is getting hot the PC. I suggest to check why is that happening. All fans working OK? is the CMOS temperature alarm set too low? check your motherboard instructions booklet- It will tell you what the beeps mean probably in the last pages. Good luck
