This behavior occurs when the Xbox 360 console experiences a hardware failure.


  1. Turn off the console, disconnect and reconnect all cables, and then turn the console back on.
  2. Turn off the console, and then disconnect any connected accessories, such as controllers, Xbox 360 Memory Units, and the Xbox 360 Hard Drive. With these accessories removed, restart the console to see whether the problem persists and to pinpoint whether it is the console or an accessory.
  3. If you continue to experience this problem, contact Xbox Customer Service.

    Note If the agent cannot help you resolve this issue, you will have to return the console to Microsoft for repair.
