3 red ,lights indicates heating issue. Shut down the XBOX and let it cool. Restart after some time. Should work normally.
Contact Microsoft as they have some kind of recall or may be replacement for some specific models like Xbox 360 pro lite.

Console flashing red, wont do anything,is there a reset


This may be an indicator of a problem with the Xbox 360's hardware. To help confirm this, turn on your console and check the power supply (the big gray brick) light. If the light on it is red, orange, unlit or anything other than green, make sure it's plugged in correctly. If that checks out, try a different outlet. If it still doesn't work, you'll have to buy a new power supply for it.

If the light is green, then you definitely have a hardware problem. The only way to resolve this is to go to this site where you can ship the 360 in for repairs. If you've bought the 360 less than 3 years ago, the repair will be of no cost to you, and Microsoft will even provide the box.

If it's been more than three years since you've purchased your 360, I believe it will cost $93 to have it repaired.

Hope this helps :)

I have three red lights flashing


Well you're either in luck, or in deep trouble. If you have bought your xbox 360 within 3 years, you have a special warranty provided by Microsoft. Call them or go to their support site, and list the problem as having three red light flashing. IMPORTANT it has to have 3 red flashing lights, with only the top right not flashing to have the warranty. They will send instructions and a box, and you just have to wait

Flashing red ring on x box 360 console


3 Blinking red lights often means that your Xbox 360 has suffered from hardware failure.

4 Blinking red lights means that your Audio / Video cable is not correctly connected (it's the colorful one; Red, white, yellow; green, blue, red if Component)

If it IS just three lights, and you bought your xbox 360 under three years ago, call 1-800-4MY-XBOX

Flashing picture and controlers wont read


i hate to be the one to say but yes it could have. i had my FIRST 360 for 2 months before i had to exchange for a new one. hard drive problems. one i would suggest seeing if you could exchange it where you bought it at and then invest in an intercooler fan for the back of it. that is an inexpensive way to protect your investment from the heat that kills them.
