Xbox 360 Red Light Fix Techniques
As with any game console ever made, the Xbox 360 is rather
prone to problems and errors. Something many gamers fear is
the chilling sight of three lights flashing red on the Ring
of Light on the front of your Xbox 360 console. When this
happens, the upper right part of the ring is the only part
that does not illuminate. Here is some info on Xbox 360 3
red light repair when your power supply light is showing red.
Thereíll be times when the light on your
Xbox 360 consoleís power supply turns red or turns off altogether.
This becomes obvious when the power supply light changes from
green to orange to red while youíre using your Xbox system.
There are a few different reasons why this may occur, but
it always occurs when the external power supply has detected
The power supply has a selection of built-in
safeguards to help you and your system prevent damage to the
console itself as well as the power supply. Thankfully, the
power supply will turn itself off when there is too much of
a current, when the passing voltage is too high, or when the
temperature of the power supply itself is too high. In the
event of any of these problems, the light will go straight
to red or turn the unit off altogether.
So what are the Xbox 360 3 red light repair
techniques that can you try out? The first thing to look at
is whether or not the power supply unit is cool to the touch.
The red light may well be trying to tell you that the power
supply is too hot. If this is the case youíll need to let
the power supply cool down for a few hours in somewhere that
is ventilated properly. Turn off your system and donít turn
it back on until the power supply has cooled completely. As
soon as it has cooled, the power supply light should change
back from red to orange, which will allow you to switch the
console back on.
A very basic Xbox 360 3 red light repair
method is to confirm is that the power supply is plugged in
correctly. It may seem simple and like common sense, but youíll
be surprised how many people miss it. If the unit is plugged
into an extension cord, a surge protector, or a power strip,
then the amount of voltage getting to your console may not
be correct. In this case, try plugging the power supply directly
into the wall socket instead of via other methods..
Another basic red light repair technique
is to try using a different power cord and power supply unit
altogether. If you do have another power cord and supply unit
available to use, try testing your console with these. If
the console doesnít turn on with a different unit, the issue
is with your Xbox console itself. If none of the three Xbox
3 red light repair methods listed here work for you, then
Iím afraid youíll have to look into your console being serviced
by the professionals.
