Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Whats the fix?
When someone say that his/her Xbox is having xbox 360 with 3 blinking red lights
problem, It means it needs to be repaired. If you are using Cooler than
it is not a cure but a prevention. You could have used cooler before
acutally having the problem just to prevent your Xbox. But now you will
have to either get it repaired from Microsoft (in case your Xbox's
warranty is not expired, but one thing to note is that you will have to
wait for at least 3-4 weeks to get back your Xbox) or you can Fix your
Xbox's 3 Flashing red lights problem yourself with the help of DIY Video guide available on Internet. You can fix yourself without any technical knowledge.

Two red lights mean your 360 is over exceeding the inside temperature. Your fan must not be working at all and your 360 is overheating tremendously. That is what I know about the 2 red lights. Im not sure what to tell you to fix this but to just call 18004myxbox.

Your a/v cable has a switch where it plugs into your xbox, it's probably set to HD and you have it hooked to a non HD T.V. just flip the switch

this is a similar fault to he dreaded 3rrod, the mainboard warps with the heat generated whilst playing the console and it cracks the lead free solder. what you need to do is something called a reflow, strip down the machine and get the mainboard itself. either use a hot air gun (paint stripper) or something called a reflow station (what i use). you then need to go over every part of the mainboard with the heat for about 5 mins each side paying particular attention to the part of the board near the a/v output. look for something called the ANA chip and put the heat onto this in a circular motion for 20 seconds.
reflow also the gpu and lan areas and you should see some improvement.
we can do all this for you and we also change the x-clamps and use team-xecuter parts. we can get consoles working again for only £40 which includes return delivery to your door.

E73: I/O Hardware Error - Couldn't calibrate HSIO Bus from edram: this error is likely caused by a problem with the Ethernet port or supporting control devices.
You can try to find some parts online, but it looks like your Ethernet port is bad...
