If none of the methods work for you then your pretty much screwed. No method is a permanent fix for the RROD.

2 red lights is overheating you can try and leave the console alone and see if that cools it down, sometimes this will work.
If it does not you will need to get it fixed and to do this you should use a good Xbox 360 Repair guide or send it in.

Red ring instead of green ring

how many quadrants are there lit if there is three lights then u have the red ring of death (RROD)
if u have 4 i think it means ur AV cable in the xbox isin proberly i think check its connected poperly and if thats not the problem TRY THIS

What we NEED 2 do is OVERHEAT ur xbox to do this u will need something that will fit through the little holes in the back of the console were the fan blows air out we need to stop these stick something like q-tips in the holes then after aba 3 mins it should overheat and two light should indicate (on the left hand side ) it has overheated to turn it off yet wait 1 min let it cook then pull the power out the back and let it cool down 10 mins (dont put in fridge or freezer lol) the turn it on GREEN LIGHTS BACK on line if that didnt work u might need to do x-clamp fix tutorials on utube or if that doesnt work TRY the oven fix were u stick ur motherboard in the oven at 230 uk or 475 usa for 10 mins TOP SHELF on BAKIN TRAY put it FLAT GUD luk

I have three flashing lights on my 360 and they aren't going away, this happened about a month ago and i made sure my power supply was hooked up nice and tight, and it went away, now it's back and it's not...

This is known as The RROD red-Ring-Of-Death.
Caused By Overheating, when the consoles played for hours, then allowed to cool down. dry solder joints occur, poor thermal paste used initially by microsoft, or the x-clamps. there are guides-tutorials and various kits et,c. available on e-bay and the likes to solve this. if you do not feel competant to attempt this. search the internet for rrod repairs, in your area. shops offer a reasonably priced service.

I have a way of fixing black dot/screen issues, may be damaging to xbox. Simply do the towel trick, but keep it heating for a LOT longer, until you get the 2 red lights. This means that xbox has totally...

Yep, and will work once or twice..

BUT you are intentionally overheating the CPU and more importantly, the GPU..

Its ironic you say .." 9/10 times has worked.." And what happend the tenth time, RROD?

Thats what you are advocating by intentionally overheating

I have two red light on my xbox when u turn it on and nothing works?? the lights are the two left lights and the console turns on for 15 seconds then the fans shut off and red light blink?? any ideas any...

Here it is. The two red lights is a "general hardware failure" but I find most of the time it is the CPU's fault. This happens when the CPU is not kept cool enough so the Xbox shuts down to prevent overheating. Basically it's the same deal as the RROD. To fix it you should do this:

A) Send it to Microsoft for repairs if you're still covered.
B) Send it to a trusted Xbox Repair center. I currently run one called DRAGONF1R3 REPAIRS.
C) Go online and purchase a RROD X-Clamp fix kit. This should come with instructions on how to fix your X-box 360 by yourself and the Hardware you will need.

These are your three best options. If you need more information on my Repair service feel free to e-mail me. (my e-mail is in my description)

I hope I helped you out.

Had 360 for over a year, the odd problem with scratched discs, however, cant get a picture only sound. thought it might have overheated, but tried all that, any ideas???

This problem is a relative of the RROD. The same fixes apply, but sadly MS won't cover this unit under it's 3 year extended warranty because it's not showing the RROD. You will need a repair in order to get up and running again. Contact me at [email protected] and I will help you get set up for a repair.

Describe your Microsoft Xbox 360 Console Prob

Well, i thought it was RROD, but it wasn't. Just let your Xbox 360 console cool. You may have to wait several hours for your console to cool enough. Don't turn on your Xbox 360 console when the console is hot. Verify that your Xbox 360 console has enough ventilation and that the fans are operating. It might be over-heating.

It is most,likely an overheating problem. Try putting your 360 in a more ventilated area, or buy an intercooler or cooling station.
I reccomend you fix this fast, since overheating can lead to the RRoD

If this does not work, you can always visit and chat live with a 24 hour support specialist.

Happy gaming and good luck.
