Xbox 360 Console: red ring of death...

if you have one, two, or three rings, give the xbox a lot of time to cool down. If you have four, your xbox is fried.

Red rings of death

  1. I had this problem with my Xbox 360 with the three red rings. I did a Google search and found alot of the fix it yourself websites. I tried it and not only was I not able to fix it I made the problem worse. So then I started looking for repair places. I came across I filled out their online order form and sent my XBOX repair off. Within days of shipping it out I had my system back. They were very quick and affordable and they provide a warranty. I've had my system back for over 3 months now. I play it for at least 3 hours a night and I have had absolutely no problems with it. I would highly recommend them if your looking to have your video gamesystem repaired.

It just shut off and wont load.

This is a common fault with the 360, it says that its a "general hardware failure" which could mean anything
really. In truth its the lead free solder that cracks with so much heat and as a result the Xbox 360 fails
causing the 3rrod (3 red rings of death) or e74 etc

You will need to get a 3rrod repair kit or get someone to fix it for you, there are guides available on the

Red Ring

Hey there,
Easiest way to fix this problem is to contact microsoft and have the console repaired. It is usually caused by the Graphics processing unit, Central processing unit, and the fan producing to much heat and warping the mother board causing the solder to become loose breaking it and loosing a good connection. Sorry for the bad news! Thing to try and practice with this console would be checking the power supply make sure it is in a well ventilated area and vents are clean, also the console must be kept clean in a open area where it can get good ventilation on all sides. since the 360 has a 3 year warranty just get the system replaced/repair and it will save you alot of grief. I hope this helps! good luck and happy gaming.

Cutting off 2 mins into the game

That happens to me once in a while too. What you do, try taking the disk drive out and run it under hot water for about 20 seconds. Then, dry it thoroughly. Put it back in and it should work.
