Though many people find a great pleasure in playing arcade games and downloading other contents like game demos, trailers, TV shows, music videos, or rented movies on Xbox 360 console but there are also a great number of people who often complain about the severe critical errors in the Xbox 360 game console. These errors are associated with the blinking of red lights found on the front panel around the power control button.

At the time when Microsoft unveiled the Xbox in cooperation with IBM and ATI, it was unaware of the technical problems like general hardware failure. The console device gained great popularity among the general populace soon after the launch. But for now the console has become notorious for its reliability. The Microsoft has upgraded the warranty of the Xbox 360 but it has not proved to be effective. Today in this article I'll explain you the reason and causes of the blinking of one red light.

When one light from the four lights ring itself changes from green to red, it means that a general hardware failure has occurred or is imminent. Blinking of one red light with an error message like E66, E67, E68, E71, E74 or E77 means a reparable problem while the one red light blinking without error message means some critical or irreparable problem.

The problem can be avoided by restarting the Xbox 360 console but if you have not received any error message with one blinking red light then the problem is irreparable. The console will behave the same way and you should understand that one or more of the hardware components in your console have stopped functioning due to hardware failure.
