Two left red lights

I was playing on my xbox 360 last night and it was fine although it was making a much louder sound than usual, when i turned it on this morning it was fine ( but still loud ) , so i turned it off for a while and came back down turned it on and two red lights on the left quadrant were on so i went to turn it of and it would not turn of.
I started to panick because no-one else was up at this time ( it was early in the morning ) so I pulled out the cable at the back so it turned of and when i put it back in it automatically turned back on, i pulled the cable out again so that it wen off but can anyone please give me a solution, because i don't know whats wrong.

The two red lights is usually over heating. Make sure it has good ventilation and that the fan is working in the back. Let it cool down for a couple hours and try it again

I suggest you to try DIY Guide that wil explain solving the 2 flashing red lights along with some other common problems of Xbox like Disc Read Error, No Video Problem and most famous RROD. Even a novice can solve the problem with the help of step by step process given at the guide. I think it's worth trying. If you try this method, you won't have to wait for 3-4 weeks and you can enjoy your gaming experience within 2 hours, once you try this guide.

It just shut off and wont load.


This is a common fault with the 360, it says that its a "general hardware failure" which could mean anything
really. In truth its the lead free solder that cracks with so much heat and as a result the Xbox 360 fails
causing the 3rrod (3 red rings of death) or e74 etc

You will need to get a 3rrod repair kit or get someone to fix it for you, there are guides available on the
internet.

Two red lights


It is overheating I suggest buying a fan hook-up(I forgot the name).Or open up the console(although you will lose your warranty) and turn off the console for about one hour(usually it takes 3-5 minutes,but just to make sure).

Xbox 360 wont work on my Tv now - always been fine before


Hi...

Make sure the switch on the 360 A/V cable is in the right position. Also unplug everything from the unit and plug it all back in again.
From the reading I've done on tech issues the 360 has a lot of temporary issues like that.
