XBOX controller and red ring problem?


Today i turned on my xbox after a week or so of not playing it. When i tried to turn on the controller, it wouldn’t turn on. It kept blinking green (and yes i’ve tried to sync it, it just went back to blinking). I also changed the batteries. Then i turned the xbox off and turned it on again, and then the red ring of death appeared. I don’t know why either of these things happened, since i haven’t played in a week. Can anyone that had a similar problem help please?

  1. I had the exact same problem with my Xbox after about a year. I was so pissed cause I was just outside the manufacturers warranty so i went digging around the net and found a guide how to fix it.

    This is the guide I used, [url is not allowed]

    Worked for me.

    Good luck man!

  2. I haven’t had a problem like that, but you should just get a new xbox- preferably an Xbox 360 slim because it probably won’t break.

    -Also I think that if you bought your Xbox the first year it came out that microsoft will fix it for you if you send it in.
