What is the red ring of death, when talking about xbox 360s and how do i prevent it from happening?
The red ring of death is when your Xbox 360 shows 3 red lights in the upper left and 2 bottom quadrants of the power circle (when you have your Xbox 360 in horizontal position.) This indicates a power failure in your Xbox 360. There are 1 of 3 reasons why this happened: 1. Chords connected to the Xbox 360 may have become disconnected, just try replugging in all of the cables and try turning it back on. 2. Your Xbox has overheated from playing too much. Try leaving your Xbox 360 off from anywhere from 1-4 hours. Then try rebooting it. 3. Your Xbox 360 has a hardware failure, there is no way of getting it fixed (at least responsibly by yourself) When you get the Red Ring of Death, you call Microsoft at 1-800-4MY-XBOX and they will send you a box (dubbed “casket”) for your 360 to send back to them for repairs. Make sure you remove your hard drive and any cables so that the only thing going into the box is the 360 itself. Microsoft will most likely only send you a refurbished Xbox 360, not
