I suggest you to try DIY Guide that wil explain solving the 2 red lights along with some other common problems of Xbox like Disc Read Error, No Video/picture Problem and most famous RROD.

3 red lights on xbox 360 tryed rebooting, unpugging everything and rebooting, also lying down and rebooting, taking fan off and rebooting still nothing happening . . .please help it was working 6 hours ago...


Unfortunately the Xbox 360 will need to be professionally repaired.
These red light errors usually happen with little warning. Sometimes you may see strange colors or it will start to freeze, however often times it strikes without warning.
The main cause of the red light errors is overheating. In the future try to keep the console in a well ventilated area and always play with the console standing upright rather than laying flat. When the Xbox 360 lays flat the entire bottom surface area gets very little air flow, causing the console to run much hotter than if it is upright.
If your warranty is up or you just don't feel like dealing with Microsoft; the company I work for GATpro Repairs offers a flat rate repair service. We even pay for return shipping. Let me know if you have any further questions.
Good Luck!

Your xbox is overheating.
1. Let your Xbox 360 console cool. You may have to wait several hours for your console to cool enough. Don't turn on your Xbox 360 console when the console is hot. 2. Verify that your Xbox 360 console has enough ventilation and that the fans are operating. 3. If the two lights continue to flash after trying the above steps, you'll need to contact Xbox Customer Support.

Don't turn on your Xbox 360 console when the console is hot. Verify that your Xbox 360 console has enough ventilation and that the fans are operating. It might be over-heating.

2 red lights


This problem may occur when the Xbox console is too hot or is overheating. The flashing lights mean that the internal temperature of your Xbox 360 console has exceeded acceptable temperature limits. Let your Xbox 360 console cool. You may have to wait several hours for your Xbox 360 console to cool enough. Don't turn on your Xbox 360 console when the console is hot.Verify that your Xbox 360 console has enough ventilation and that the fans are operating. If the two lights continue to flash red after you try steps 1 and 2, contact Xbox Customer Support.

Microsoft can be contacted by finding the number listed on the back of your video game booklets.

Good Luck to you and Happy Gaming.

This exact thing is happening to not only me but to also a friend of mine. You will probably notice that the fan kicks on really high and then goes to 2 flashing red lights, this is because the 360 is overheating or thinks its overheating. My friend's 360 starts up with the fan kicked on high and then only plays for a minute or 2, followed by the 2 red lights. If its under warranty send it back to Microsoft, I took mine and my friends 360 apart and replaced the thermal paste with arctic silver, but it kind of only helped a little for mine and not at all for my friends. SEND IT BACK!!!!!!
