XBOX 360 slim has a red dot in the middle of the power button.

  • Level   1

yesterday while i was on the youtube app, i paused the video and came back to my xbox being frozen. this has happened before so i restarted my console. upon doing this the light went from green to red. i am familiar with the red ring of death on the older consoles because i have had that quite a few times.(this is my 4th xbox). this was my 1st assumtion. after reading online i see that this has happened to alot of people. this was a launch 360s that i pre-ordered. i wonder if its just getting old. some say the light means the xbox isnt getting enough ventilation. so maybe a fan would fix it? i was going to find out but when i turned on my xbox today the light on the power brick turned red.i unplugged it until the light turned off and tried again and it works but i dont want to run my xbox right now. i am afraid if i run my xbox it will damage it further. what can i do? i have a launch 360s so i can assume my warranty is expired.

    thank you for the link but what about the red light on the power button?

    If the Xbox still shows green rings it may be a defect in your console's lighting.

    If the steps fail to solve the problem, is what I mean to say
