Xbox 360 Red Ring Of Death
Looking for information on the Xbox 360 red ring of death? Before you can understand what the red ring of death means, it is important that you know that only the original Xbox 360 console was affected by the red ring of death. The information contained below does not pertain to the Xbox 360 S console. If your Xbox 360 is experiencing the red ring of death, you will notice that the power lights on the front of the console, which are normally green, will be red. All of the power lights, except for the upper right one, will be red.
When you see three red lights on the front of your Xbox 360 gaming console flashing, it means that either there is a problem with your power supply or that your console is experiencing a hardware problem. If your Xbox 360 is experiencing a hardware problem, that is generally caused by the console overheating. Before you contact Microsoft directly about the red ring of death, check your power supply to see if the light is green. If it is, disconnect all of the power supply cables, wait a few seconds and then plug them back in.
If, after doing that, you are still seeing the three red lights on the front of your Xbox 360, it means that there is a hardware problem. For hardware problems, you will need to contact Microsoft about sending your Xbox 360 in for a repair. You can do that by calling them at (800) 469-9269 between the hours of 9 am and 1 am eastern time or by filling out a support ticket online. Even if your Xbox 360 is not under warranty, Microsoft will repair your console or send you a certified refurbished one at no cost, and they will even pay for the cost of return shipping. The Xbox 360 console that you receive back will come with a new limited warranty.
