Sounds like the heatsink over your graphics processor is loosing contact after it warms up, i ended up opening the xbox and removing the x clamps and adding nuts and bolts to both heat sinks and that was a permanent fix, if you give me your email i will go in depth about how to fix it, not enough room here to give all the details

2 red flashing lights


The Xbox console is overheated.
  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 red after you try steps 1 and 2, contact Xbox Customer Support.
To try to prevent this problem, follow these precautions:
  • Don't block any ventilation openings on your Xbox 360 console.
  • Don't put your Xbox 360 console on a bed, on a sofa, on a carpet floor, or on any other soft surface that may block ventilation openings.
  • Don't put your Xbox 360 console in a confined space, such as a bookcase, a rack, or a stereo cabinet, unless the space is well ventilated.
  • Don't put your Xbox 360 console near any heat source, such as a radiator, a heat register, a stove, or an amplifier.
Taken from Microsoft support.

Best of Luck.

Most of the time when you have 2 red flashing lights one of the clamps has come loose holding down the cooler on the GPU or CPU.

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

Xbox 360 problem


If you can still HEAR sound, but can't see. Check your Audio Video Cable.

It's the colorful one (red, white, yellow) (red, blue green, white, red)

Make sure the connections are secure into the back of the TV as well as the connection to the back of the Xbox 360.

Cannot view picture or game for my xbox 360


Make sure you are using the correct video settings. Try using the basic red white yellow cords and see if that helps. Also make sure you have switched between HD and regular video. there is a switch on the video cable connector that plugs into the xbox.

Xbox 360 Freeze!!


It's a common fault with X boxes, the red lights indicate overheating, so make sure it is well ventillated and if neccasary you can purchase an add on cooler for the system.
