Solid red light (Xbox 360 S or Xbox 360 E console)

There is a solid red light on my console and the screen is blank.

Try the following steps:

Let the power supply cool for about 30 minutes.

Plug the power supply into a different wall outlet.

Disconnect and reconnect all accessories.

Check the power supply.

Remove the hard drive.

If the above steps don’t solve the issue, order a replacement power supply from the Xbox Online Service Center.

There is a flashing red light on my console and I get the error: The Xbox 360 is shutting down to protect the console from insufficient ventilation.

Try the following steps:

Let the console cool down.

Relocate the console.

If the above steps don’t solve the issue, request a repair.
