I just got my 3 rlod to get to 2 rlod. This is also the first time the fans have ever turned on. But after about 5 seconds the green light turns to 2rlod and the fans turn off.

Before the 3 rlod I did the X-Clamp replacement method, got the 3RLOD so I got a new powerbrick and now I'm stuck at the above. (before the x-clamp the fans didn't turn on and I honestly didn't know it was a power problem until I was done.)

So my question is, are the fans supposed to turn off, and how might I go about fixing this problem?

Thanks, and sorry for the lack of sense this post made.

Also the Powerbrick is a used one, and turns yellow whenever it's plugged in. (even when it's just plugged into the wall or surge protector.

Do you know what secondary code you were getting before you did the x-clamp fix?


If you get two red lights the main power is cut off from the board to prevent overheating damage to the chips. The fans will turn off at this time as well.

What method of x-clamp fix did you use? Assuming you are using high quality Silver compound - did you put the correct amount on the chip dies. Also if your heatsink is not applying equal or not enough pressure you can cause this issue.

The power brick will stay and amber color until you power on the 360. Amber means standby green means go red (your f@@@@) lol.

Hey, thanks for the response. But I ended up taking off the heatsinks, recleaning and applying my thermal compound (arctic silver). I also took a look at a newer x-clamp replacement tutorial which said the heatsink and cpu/pcu had to be 2mm apart or else overheating. So I got rid of the metal washer and the nylon washer was 2mm. put it all back together. Had to let it overheat (this time with the fans still on) and after a bit it worked. I've played gta4 for a couple hours tonight.

My next activity is to flash the DVD drive's firmware. (I also have questions about that. Like, does it matter what version of MTKFlash I have, and why does this one tutorial say to have mtkflash.exe and mtkflash.typ? (also two modded fw .bins, not just one)

Anyway, help on that would be great, I'm going to make an effort to flash it tomorrow.
