Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Picture Freezing on 360!

I've had my 360 since Christmas and I have never had any problems. I've read alot about the 3 red light problem, and it sounds like the problem I have, except there are no red lights. I start to play a game, and can play fine for 15 to 20 minutes, then it freezes up and I have to reset the 360. Then this will happen again. I get no red lights flashing on the front of the console, which is why this seems strange. This only happens if I play a game, if I am on the 360 dashboard, I can leave it all day and the screen wont freeze. I've tried multiple games and different TV's, (including a brand new one that definetly supports PAL60) and I still get this problem. Has anyone heard of this before? and are there ways to fix it? Any help is much appreciated.

Bought a 360 arcade in December and it wont read alot of new games. We think it is burning the disk instead of reading them. It also was showing a red ring of death two weeks after our purchase. We bought...

Hi,

Because the Xbox is new (less that a year old) Microsoft will repair this problem for free whether the red ring has 1,2 or 3 flashing red lights.

You will also need to tell them about the laser not reading properly.

They will no doubt send you a replacement Xbox as they are well aware of these issues and have even extended their warranty to 3 years with the 3 light red ring of death.

You may however have to wait something in the region of 6 weeks for the Xbox to be returned.

If you need anymore advice please post back.


Regards.

X-box 360 hanging/freezing picture

This is the begining of the 3 red rings of death. If it's under warranty with microsoft send it in for repair, if not, you can attempt the xclamp replacement mod or go on ebay and look for someone with a reflow station to reflow your GPU on your xbox motherboard.

Freezing 360, vibrating controller, colored lines on screen.

3 red lights is the red ring of death, 4 means your AV cable is disconnected. If it freezes up though, you have a bad DVD player in it. I would send it back.

Picture problem

Red ring is not the only problem with Microsoft Xbox 360. This amazing device also has some more common problems like Audio , video/Picture problem, disc read error etc. Microsoft is providing extended warranty only for red ring problem. Means you will have to spend some money to get this problem repaired also if you plan to send your xbox to Microsoft, you will have to wait for 3-4 weeks to get back your favourite Xbox. There is one more option in the form of DIY guide, this guide explains solving No Video problem with step by step instruction, so any novice can fix this problem.

if its 3 red rings then you need to cal customer support at 1-800-4myxbox to see if your still under warrenty and if you are you get a new xbox. if you arent under warrenty you can open your xbox which will void your warrenty if you have one. and you can repair it yourself which is risky if you do not know alot about system parts

Xbox 360

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).
