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.

SOURCE: As playing Xbox 360 system shuts off two red lights occurs.

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.

SOURCE: Sound and no picture xbox 360 no flashing red lights

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

SOURCE: outer ring of the xbox 360 is blinking red

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.

SOURCE: xbox 360 doesnt work because of one red light and message of E73 that they dont know how to fix

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...

Xbox power light is blinking whats wrong


No, the red flashing lights does not always depict a hard drive crash, Shawn Wallace.

This can mean a number of things...
__________________________________________

- Your Xbox 360 GPU or CPU are overheating. This can be because of a buildup of dust, the fan not working properly, or just from leaving your Xbox on too long.

- Your Hardware has failed, and needs to be repaired

- Something in the Xbox 360 isn't plugged in all of the way.

Red Ring of Death: Red Flashing XBOX 360 Lights Explained Common Xbox 360 Red Ring Errors The XBOX has a reported 54.2% failure rate which makes the XBOX 360 gaming consoles' worst "lemon" to date. If you find yourself with the red flashing lights error, --> lg.php?category_id=15&content_type=article&content_type_id=2663399&key_page=682482001924178892&site_id=1&bannerid=11791&campaignid=3153&zoneid=23&loc=1&referer=http%3a%2f%2fwww.associatedcontent.com%2farticle%2f2663399%2fred_ring_of_death_red_flashing_xbox.html%3fcontent_type%3darticle%26content_type_id%3d2663399&cb=8da55f49a0 follow this guide to try and pinpoint the problem with your XBOX 360.

1 Red Ring = Serious Hardware Failure
I f your XBOX 360 has a 1 red flashing light error, you're more than likely in big trouble. The 1 flashing red ring of light can be due to GPU or CPU failure, RAM overheating, a DVD drive error, or some serious problem with your Xbox 360's internal components. The most common 1 flashing red ring lights error is the E74 error. The E74 error is no easy fix for the Xbox 360 and usually has to be repaired by the manufacturer [though some have managed to repair it with the heat gun trick - but be careful]

2 Red Rings = Overheating
Mostly all red flashing lights on the Xbox 360 rings are due to overheating in some way or other, but the 2 red rings singles out overheating as the main issue. When doing the X-Clamp fix the 2 red rings are required to fix the Xbox 360 by overheating the CPU. If you get this Xbox 360 error without doing the X-Clamp fix, you probably just need to let your Xbox 360 cool down for a few hours. Make sure that all vents aren't blocked off and that your Xbox fans are working properly in order to repair this problem.

3 Red Rings = Basic Hardware Failure
The most common error on the Xbox 360 is the 3 red rings - also known as the Red Rings of Death (RRoD). This flashing lights problem is the main cause of Xbox 360's 54.2% failure rate. The 3 red flashing lights can be due to lots of different errors but is mainly due to the X-Clamps in your Xbox 360 and overheating. Fortunately, lots of people were able to fix this issue using the X-Clamp and heat gun fix. Follow this list of error codes to find out the real issue with the 3 red rings because there are quite a few of them.

Wont load,blinking red light on the power button


if it is the top left, bottom left and bottom right lights blinking red, this means that there is a hardware failure in your xbox 360 and there is no current way to fix this. i recommend that you send it in to xbox to see if they can do anything, and if not, they will possibly send you a new xbox 360.

Three red light`s on xbox 360 console how can i fix the problem


How to Fix Xbox 360 3 Red Lights
Appearance of the three blinking red lights on your Xbox 360 game console is a familiar problem and in this article I will try to offer some solutions to rectify this nagging problem.
The 3 blinking red lights point to an internal error and might be ascribed to common breakdown of hardware.
Try out this simple fix if you like:
Step one will involve removal of memory units and hard drive.
At step 2, under the system blade run the INITIAL SETUP.
At step three involves declining the insertion of memory unit or HDD prompt offer with a negative reply when the prompt creates the automatic offer.
Finally you need to sync the controller & pop in a game.
Due to the widespread occurrence of the three red light fault, Microsoft is offering a new 3 year free warranty.

Your xbox had gotten the red ring of death. If you send it to microsoft and its in warrenty they will fix it or send you a brand new one. You have to go to there website, and they will ask you for a bunch of info, it will say if its in warrenty or not and if it is they will send you a box to mail it to them in.

usually about 1 month turn around time
