My xbox 360 controller dosent work!I have a black controller and a white one,the white one dosent trun on it just flashes like a freaking comilean!


There's a little button on the front of your 360 and the same button is on the front of the controller. You hit the button on the 360 and the green lights around the power button start to circle. Then you hit it on your controller and the green lights around thexbox guide button start to circle. In a second or two they'll find each other and both will flash at the same time, and it's synced up. I think there's a little symbol of air waves next to the button.

Try this it should fix your problem

I have problems with my Xbox 360 everytime i turn on the 360 there is a red circle. I tryed to fix it but it just won't work anymore how do i fix this Problem


Is there three red lights???? or a complete circle???? Three lights is the red ring of death. Four red lights or a circle is either a bad a/v cable (try a different one) or a bad hard drive....(try taking it off of the side when power is off then turn it on.).

Trying to turn xbox on and getting blinking red ring around power button


If you are having three red lights flashing around the power button with upper right corner not flashing, it means that your Xbox 360 is having a general hardware failure. This is caused by the internal components of the console experiencing a malfunction. You can contact Microsoft Xbox Support for it to be repaired.

What can I do when the power button has a full red circle around it?


thats the dreaded "ring of death"! I have never heard of anyone fixing that. best bet is to go get a used xbox from a pawn shop. a good deal would be anywhere from 100-200 depending on what the gb is of course

My xbox360 has a red circle instead of a green circle theirfore will not work what can this be


Three flashing red lights around the Xbox 360 power button (nicknamed the "Red Ring of Death"), represent an internal problem that requires service. Warning signs may include freeze-ups, graphical problems in the middle of gameplay, such as checkerboard or pinstripe patterns on the screen, and sound errors, and the console only responds to pressing the power button to turn it off.

This error code is usually caused by failure of one or more hardware components, although it can indicate that the console is not receiving enough power from the power supply, which can either be due to a faulty power supply or if the power supply cable is not fully inserted into the console.


Distinct from the General Hardware Failure is a similar-looking error warning where four red lights appear, in which case the console does not detect an AV cable is plugged in. The four lights can sometimes also be seen when power surges or very brief power outages occur while the console is running, in which the console needs to be unplugged and plugged back in again to reset the error. Two red lights appear when the system is overheated.

Which 3 lights? Are they on the circle that shows the number of controllers communicating with the machine? Is the light on your power suplly red? If it is te lights around the circle (power button) then it is probably a communication error with your controller, or if the 360 isn't powering up, it could be an problem with the systems BIOS. In either case, you might want to look at using that warranty, that is, if you still have one.
