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.

So it's the same as in the original answer from Sept. 2010 ?

I concur with Collin here. I have an original xbox and these things did tend to overheat. Mine has, and has been fixed for it. No problems since.

Unplug and reconnect both the hard drive and the DVD drive IDE cable (data cable) to fix the red-green flashing problem. Apparently the contacts get dirty and this cleans them up a bit. Be sure to have the AC cord (power cord) unplugged while doing this.

I was told to try this when my Xbox started flashing red and green. After a few attempts and buying new cables, it still won't work. Anyone else have any other suggestions?

It means that there might be a problem with the motherboard, such as bloated caps,etc.

Usually the Xbox will display an error code on screen usually in the upper left hand corner, could be like 05 or 06 or something like that.

I have a code 08 in the upper left. Goes past splash screen and immediately to "need service" screen. No set-up (time, date) screen. Flashes red/green

Found that the problem I have is a dead hard drive. As I can't simply swap a new one for the old, but would need a modchip, blah, blah, blah, I'm going to have to find a used one from a trusted source. Grrrr! Not sure I like the 360 and don't want to give up my games to to possible lack of backwards compatibility. Rats!!

I'm getting error code 7 and I tried everything and still it won't work.

I have another one, I turn it on and the green light blinks while the Xbox shuts simultaneously with the light. Then it starts to blink red and orange along with the green. Can someone help

Me?

My xbox blinks red on the power button what do I do

The error 8 might be a bad / loose IDE cable , but another idea is get an identical harddrive and swap the logic boards

If you have an error 7 , your harddrive most likely died. The only fix is to use the eeprom to build a new drive.

If you never modded your xbox and backed up the eeprom , the only way to retrieve it is with an eeprom reader. http://www.instructables.com/id/XBox-EEP...
