xbox Red Blinking Light
I have an xbox with a red blinking ring around the power button. The disc drive will not open and the main screen says I need to get tech assistence. There is more information on the net about the 360 and diagnosing issues by blink codes... I was wondering if the origenal xbox has similar codes and where i might start the troubleshooting process
I looked around and found some guys discussing the blink codes for an Xbox on 2005, so they are most likely discussing the first Xbox.
- Solid red, overheated.
- Flashing green, bad bios load.
- Flashing red-orange, bad video output
- Flashing red-green, system faliure (can be alot of things)
Here was where I found the thread if you wanted to read through their discussion. As long as its not flashing red and green, it would be safe to assume your Xbox is overheating.
I have the same thing happen to me like when i just plug it in without the video cord in it will be blinking orange and green. but when i plug in the video cord it will start blinking red and green. plus why in the world my xbox when i plug it in it will shut off then cut back on then shut off then cut on and stay on. also why is my disc drive wont ever open its like the disc drive is disabled. can someone please help me or give me some advide or ideas to try and fix it???
thanks message back ASAP!!!
