Red Ring of Death Fix

Three flashing red lights around the Xbox 360 power button (nicknamed the “Red Ring of Death” or “Red Lights of Death” or “Red Ring of Doom”), instead of the one to four green lights indicating normal operation, represent an internal problem that requires service. Warning signs may include freeze-ups, graphical problems in the middle of gameplay, such as checkerboard or pinstripe patterns on the screen, and sound errors, and the console only responds to pressing the power button to turn it off.
