If you are getting the 3 red lights I will tell you why it happens and how you can fix it.

The 3 red lights happens because the GPU and the CPU overheat and as this happens the soldering snaps off. you may get a few freeze ups when this happens.

Eventually though you get the 3 red lights and you need to find a way to get it fixed.

You can do this by sending it in and they will repair it for you.

This will take about 4 weeks to get it fixed however.

The other way you can fix it is by repairing it yourself and this means that you can get the job done in under an hour.

There is a list of the best Xbox 360 Repair guides HERE.

I hope this helps and if so please rate it so it can help others.

My xbox has three red flashing lights, how can I get it working again?


My sons Xbox had the 3 red lights! It depends what colour of light is showing on your power pack the colour indicates what the problem is! The light will either be red,amber or green, my sons light was amber and that was due to a faulty power pack, Microsoft were very obliging and replaced the power pack free of charge,it arrived in 3 working days! Here is a link that will take you through the different lights and how to fix the problem!

Xbox live connection keeps crashing.


Hi,

problems usually happen, when the signal strength drops.
I,d suggest hard-wiring the 360 to the PC or router, for optimal performance.

Thankyou for using fixya.

3 Red Flashing lights problem is one of the most common problem of Xbox 360. You will have to either get it repaired from Microsoft (in case your Xbox's warranty is not expired, but one thing to note is that you will have to wait for at least 3-4 weeks to get back your Xbox) or you can Fix your Xbox's 3 Flashing red lights problem yourself with the help of DIY Video guide available on Internet. You can fix yourself without any technical knowledge.

Unfortunately this is a very touchy situation. There is one home method for curing this problem.

1). Wrap your Xbox 360 Console COMPLETELY with a towel, so you can only see the power button, and the three flashing red lights.

2). Power on your console.

3). Leave for 30-45 minutes.

4). Power off the console.

5). Unwrap the towel from the console.

6). Power on.

**Problem Solved** If not continue reading.

After that you are unfortunately forced to call the dreaded Microsoft Customer Support Line

1-800-4-MY-XBOX
1-800-469-9269

And ask to create a repair order, they will send you a Purolator (or FedEx) shipping box. You have to send your console to them, they will repair it and have it to you within (2-3 business weeks).
