my 360 gets a red blinking ring and then a pixelated screen? any one know the problem? Answered



Its called the ring of death man.One time we were at Foxwoods with my papa and we were saving up money for a xbox but that would take forever and school starts in two weeks.Luckily my papa had 5,000 bucks and he bought it for us.When we got home we set it up but there was a red light. My mom read the booklet and she said it is broken so my papa went all the way down to Conneticut where Foxwoods is and returned it and we got the Wii.That,s my story.

lets see buy the x box 360 cooler and if u already have it and u leave it on the x box theres ur problem it froze the system or u over heated it in this case use the coller to cool it or not it fell what ill do is just take it in and its called the ring of death but i call it the ring of 3itches

I don't know if it's the same thing I get, but my 360 does something similar. I can usually fix it by unplugging it from the power supply and waiting a few minutes, then plugging it back in. Of course, I don't know what causes this or if it's a sign of a serious problem, but it seems to work.

How many lights on the ring blink?

red ring of death its the xbox's way of saying its broken you need to send it in there are ways to fix it yourself I think there are some on here like the towel method
