3 red light another solution

i have torn up many xbox consoles
i am now currently on my newest and 5th xbox 360
(its a slim and its FANTASTIC)

microsoft screwed up in the begining by making xboxs with a certain type of sauder and other metals making it (over time) vaunerable to heat. the red ring oof death is an overheating issue.

also if you take apart your xbox if you dont put the screws back in perfect your xbox will have continue to show red ring of death.

my friend, as a fellow xbox client i suggest you get $200 and go buy the new 360.

my best regards,

First make sure that all of your cables are still plugged in. I know it's highly unlikely that one came out on it's own, but it happened to me. If they ARE still plugged in, try UN-plugging all of them and then re-connecting them. Then turn it back on.

What you're experiencing is known as the Red Ring of Death. (Microsoft prefers to call it the Red Ring of Light though, because, well, it's a happier way of putting it.)

It's basically a hard-drive failure. It's pretty bad. It happens to a lot of people, and could be caused from a million different things.

At any rate, if un-plugging and reconnecting all of your cables doesn't work; you'll have to contact Xbox Support via phone or email, explain your problem to them, wait a few days for them to get back to you to let you know that they're sending you an empty box with pre-paid postage on it for you to ship the console back to them in Texas for it to be repaired or replaced.

Sorry for such a long-winded explanation, but there's really no sure-fire way to fix that problem so far other than sendin' your console back for repairs.
