Ok so here is an overview of the problems and how you can fix them:

2 red lights: Pure overheating! You will need to give it a dust out, leave it too cool down and see if it is working then, you may need to repair it.
3 red lights - Most common error happens when the GPU and the CPU is overheating,you need to stop the heat build up and you will be fine.
4 red lights - Dont panic just plug the AV cable in or get a new cable!
