– One single red light will indicate that your console is suffering general hardware failure.
– Two red lights showing on your gaming console will indicate that your Xbox has overheated. This can be solved as easily as turning your Xbox off and giving it some time to cool down.
– Three red lights, otherwise known as the “red ring of death” will indicate that the CPU and GPU chip have overheated, thus causing the motherboard to bend. When you turn your console off, the chips begin to cool down and the knock-on effect is the bending motherboard.
– Four red lights mean that your AV cable is no longer working correctly. This could merely be because it isn’t connected properly or that the cable no longer works.
