Is the it the power supply red light?

The red light may indicate that the power supply is too hot or is overheated. Therefore, you should let the power supply cool for several hours in a well-ventilated space. During this time, you should not try to turn the console back on to allow the power supply sufficient time to cool. As soon as the power supply has cooled off, the power supply light will change from red to orange, and you can turn the console back on.

If the power supply light is still red after you have let the power supply unit cool in a well-ventilated space, the power supply unit may require replacement.
Also make sure the power msupply is plugged in correctly.

You could also purchase a new power cord.
Good luck
Mick

Power supply is nothing to do with the 1 red light fault. The problem is lead free solder used in the Manufacture of the console. The high operating temperature of the console causes fractures in the solder. The solution is an infra red reflow of the solder. This can be done at:

SOURCE: One Flashing Red Light

From what I have gathered is it is most likely a defective av cable (where you plug it in) has a chip in the cable itself that goes bad. they said if u get a new one, most likely it will fix it, if not its a gpu prob( but thats rare ) and if it is the gpu, that you should call the xbox number and get them to send you a box.

There is a 90% chance it's a scaler chip problem (the "ANA" or "HANA" chip near the AV cable connection) it can also be caused by a faulty AV cable so check that first. In rare cases it is a problem with the GPU.

Check the cable leading to the TV is plugged in securely both ends. If it is, it is probably a faulty cable, and you will need a new one.

SOURCE: XBOX360 RED LIGHTS FLASH ON CONSOLE AND I GET NO PICTURE?

this problem occurs:


  • When there is too much current.
  • When the voltage is too high.
  • When the temperature of the power supply is too high

  • if you have the console plugged into an extension lead try plugging directly into the wall, but 1st, turn off your console and leave power plugged in to allow fans to continue cooling the system.. after fans switch off, carefully plug out power cord and allow cord and console to cool in a well ventilated area for 24 hours. if its still red you may need to replace your power cord as it may have overheated

    One flashing red light on xbox360 ( not red ring)


    The specific type of hardware failure can be determined by a "hidden" error code
    Turn the xbox 360 on, and wait till the 3 red lights are flashing.
    Press and hold the sync up button (the small white one), while holding that button press the eject button.
    The LEDs will now blink the first number in the code (as described below).
    Release the eject button and press it again.
    The LEDs will now blink the second number of the code.
    Release the eject button and press it again.
    The LEDs will now blink the third number of the code.
    Release the eject button and press it again.
    The LEDs will now blink the forth number of the code.
    Release the eject button and press it again.
    The LEDs will go back to the 3 red flashing lights.
    You should be able to determine the difference between the 3 flashing lights and the error code lights by the rate in which they flash.
    Here is how you interpret the LEDs to get the code number:
    All four lights flashing - 0
    One light flashing - 1
    Two Lights flashing - 2
    Three lights flashing - 3

    Once you get this code, go to: http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=484726
    To get the reason for the code.
