360 Red Lights Of Death

29 replies 2 views Edited Jan 22, 2007
This will probably get locked but to let you guys know if your having problems with your 360 particularly the red lights, shut off the console and unplug everything. Plug everything back in and make sure your controller is in the first slot and turn the console back on. I went to Gamestop 3 times in a row because of the red light problem only to find out, all I had to do was unplug the 360. I hope this helps some people out there.

Why would this thread get locked?

The views expressed in this message are in no way the official views of the Xbox 360 and are of a personal nature.

I wasn't too sure, I noticed the other 360 thread was locked but I guess thats because people were flaming each other.

theres a difference between 3 red lights or 4 red lights.  Many dont realize 3 just needs a reboot, 4 means its toast.

Thanks, I'll have to try that if mine ever breaks, but if that doesn't work, I'll just contact Best Buy because I have the 2 year warranty.

Nope.  Before I even called MS about the problem, I unplugged all the cables and let it sit there for awhile and plugged it back up: 3 Red Lights.  Took out the HDD and attempted to play a game: 3 Red Lights.  3 Red Lights is a Hardware Failure.
