    Hey Ngu to day im going to be teaching you how to fix the most common rrod errors on the xbox 360 i will also be keeping this thread updated so you will be getting more and more repair tutorials.


    1) 4 red ring :
    Spoiler:

    Fix: Easily the simplest check if your av cables are plugged in right and if so check to make sure there not broken. Now there might be also a problem with your xbox not picking it up in which case check to make sure that thers no missing tabs in the connection port and that theres no loose parts inside.

    2) 3 red rings(section 1,3,4) :
    Spoiler:

    Fix: Check The Secondary List below.

    3) 1 red Ring(section 4) :
    Spoiler:

    Fix: Check The Secondary List below.


    --==SECONDARY ERROR CODES==-
    The specific type of hardware failure can be determined by a "hidden" error code
    Turn the xbox 360 on, and wait till the 3 red lights are flashing.
    Press and hold the sync up button (the small white one), while holding that button press the eject button.
    The LEDs will now blink the first number in the code (as described below).
    Release the eject button and press it again.
    The LEDs will now blink the second number of the code.
    Release the eject button and press it again.
    The LEDs will now blink the third number of the code.
    Release the eject button and press it again.
    The LEDs will now blink the forth number of the code.
    Release the eject button and press it again.
    The LEDs will go back to the 3 red flashing lights.
    You should be able to determine the difference between the 3 flashing lights and the error code lights by the rate in which they flash.

    Here is how you interpret the LEDs to get the code number:
    All four lights flashing - 0
    One light flashing - 1
    Two Lights flashing - 2
    Three lights flashing - 3

    0001 power supply problem Fix:
    Spoiler:
    Possible Defective parts:
    1) Power brick/supply
    2) Motherboard
    3) Mosfets
    Finding the defective part:
    Common sense…
    Use the power brick with any other working Xbox 360 (Just to check, borrow it from your friend)
    1) If it doesn’t work – Your Power brick is faulty
    2) If its does – Your 360 is faulty.
    You can also check your 360 with another working power brick.
    1) If it doesn’t work – Your 360 is faulty.
    2) If its does – Your Power brick is faulty
    If your Power brick is faulty, all you have to do is replace the power brick. You can find it online on eBay, some forum’s Trading Posts etc (XS, GI etc)
    If your Xbox 360 is faulty, here are some things you can try.
    1) Sometimes, it can be due to some metal piece on the motherboard which is shorting it.
    So you can use some cotton dipped in alcohol and clean the motherboard all through. Do this row by row, column by column.
    If it works, celebrate and play some Gears of War!!! If not, move on to the next step.
    2) Mosfets can be defective.[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    You will have to replace the mosfets.
    Materials needed:
    * Soldering Iron
    * Mosfets (just get some free samples from onsemi.com)
    Procedure:
    1) Open up the Xbox 360 and pull out the motherboard.
    2) You will have to replace these. To replace these basic de-soldering skills are needed.

    First, try replacing the mosfet closer to the CPU. If you fail to get it working, replace the second one.

    There are many versions of the mosfet. You may find these on Xenon boards:

    Replacement part: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    You may find these on Falcon boards:

    3) After the replacement, if you still can’t get it working then, you will have to replace the controller chip. You can find it under the memory stick slot.
    On Xenon Boards:

    Replacement part: ON Semiconductor part # NCP5425
    On Falcon Boards:

    0002 Network Interface problem Fix:
    Spoiler:
    More than likely only need to reflow the solder points in the network area

    0003 Power problem could be the PSU could be the GPU/CPU Fix:
    Spoiler:
    There are 2 ways you could do this replace the mosfets from 0001 and if that doest work reflow the cpu.

    0010 over heating Fix:
    Spoiler:
    2 things to do 1: Xclamp Fix 2: 12v Fan or fan mod

    0011 over heating Fix: Same As 0010
    0012 over heating Fix: Same As 0010
    0013 over heating Fix: Same As 0010
    0020 io ERROR unknown cause Fix:
    Spoiler:
    Try practically everything as its almost impossible to fix.

    0021 DVD Drive Time out Fix:
    Spoiler:
    If its flashed re-flash it if not reflow the southbridge area

    0022 GPU Error / GPU Overheating
    Spoiler:
    You can try a reflow but is most-likely going to need a reball

    0023 Unknown Cause Fix:
    Spoiler:
    Either Try the x-clamp replace if that doesn't work try a full console reflow

    0101 Unknown Cause Fix: Same as 0023
    0102 Unknown Cause Fix: Same as 0023 or
    Spoiler:

    though it's most likely GPU related literally means the console does not know what is wrong. possibly a short or cold solder joint somewhere. So far there is 1 major theory for what causes most of these errors is that the Ram, CPU, or GPU are not soldered properly to the mother board due either to poor manufacturing or excessive heat up and cool down cycles that stress, weaken and eventually break the soldered connection.
    There are two theories to fixing this one deals with the "X" clamps that hold down the chips. The other involves re-Heating the chips. DO NOT attempt either of these if your console is still under warranty. If your console is still under warranty return it to the store where it was purchased or call MS to have it replaced. I have also heard of limited success by simply switching the AV cable from "HDTV" mode to "TV" mode.

    0103 CPU Error/ CPU Overheating - see solution for error 0102
    0110 Memory Error / Memory Overheating - see solution for error 0102 General Error Fix: [spoiler] Either just do a cpu reflow or if that does't work try a reball [/spoiler

    1010 Hard Drive Error, Can be caused buy a corrupt or missing eProm.
