What To Do when Your Xbox 360 Power
Supply Light Turns Red
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.
There’ll be times when
the light on your Xbox 360 console’s power supply turns
red or turns off altogether. This becomes obvious when the
power supply light changes from green to orange to red while
you’re 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 a fault.
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
you’ll need to let the power supply cool down for a
few hours in somewhere that is ventilated properly. Turn off
your system and don’t 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 you’ll 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 doesn’t 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 I’m afraid you’ll have to look into
your console being serviced by the professionals.
