Xbox 360 Three Red Light (RROD)

video game console is subject to a number of technical problems that can render it unusable. Some, but not all, of these problems are identified as “general hardware failures,” and are indicated by three flashing red lights around the power button. Since its release in 2005, many articles have appeared in the media portraying the Xbox 360’s relatively high . The three “flashing red lights” have been nicknamed in these articles as the  “RRoD.

In fact, the console displays varying numbers of red lights to indicate different problems, going from 1 to 4 in order of most severe to least. One red light signifies a major hardware failure or system error , depending on which hardware failure or system error it is depends on how the problem can be fixed but in some cases there is no easy recovery and the console must be repaired or replaced. Two means the console is overheating and must be switched off and left to cool. Three, the infamous ‘Red Ring of Death’, means a general hardware failure and the console must be sent to Microsoft for repairs. All four red lights simply means that the console cannot detect its AV cable.

Several video game blogs, newspapers, and magazines (Such as Wired, Kotaku, Joystiq, The Inquirer, GamePro, G4, and several others) reported on an interview by a Seattle PI Reader Blog “Digital Joystick” with a confidential source inside Microsoft by the name “xboxfounder”. It reported that this source was a team leader and key architect in the creation of the Xbox and Xbox 360 and a founding member of the Xbox team and has since left the company but maintained close ties to the remaining Xbox team.[5][6]

  1. Microsoft will repair consoles under the 90 day warranty for free, but they charge $140 to repair any console without a warranty. It is a steep price to pay not counting the shipping costs you pay and the month you have to wait.

    The Xbox 360 red lights are a serious problem that over 6 million people are experiencing. The worst thing about Xbox 360 red lights is that the problem will not go away without special knowledge.

  2. Microsoft have gave ALL CONSOLES HAVE A 3 YEARS WARRANTY FOR THE RED RING NOW GO IN TO XBOX SITE HERE https://service.xbox.com/servicehome.aspx?mkt=en-gb&scrx=1
