3 flashing red lights on original Xbox 360?


Everywhere I have read says its a power supply issue. Such as, “it’s not plugged in securely enough” or “Get a new power adapter” Well I have it completely plugged in, to the wall and the adapter and it still stays like this. I even bought a new power adapter fairly cheap. Still does this. I took the whole thing apart, cleaned it out, put it back together leaving the shell off. What else could this be and how can I fix it? If it can’t be fixed then I have an Xbox 360 Slim in the other room in perfect condition I use all the time. I would just like to see if I can get it to work again since Microsoft hasn’t canceled the Xbox Live on the 360s yet.

  1. 3 flashing red lights signifies a general hardware failure and in general means the system is completely dead.

  2. It could be a red ring.if you play your Xbox then stop playing it but forget to turn it off and its just seating there (still on) for a long time without being used you can get a red ring.
