Look on the web under xbox 360 3 rrod that will give you two or three fixes for that. But your box will go out one day could be a month or a year from the fix. do at you own risk and don't do the towle trick also it will void any warranty. I assume no responsability for your actions in using my advice.

I would first unplug your xbox and then plug it back in. If that does not fix the three red lights, then you have the Red Ring of Death as it is called. This problem occurs when there is some sort of overheating or hardware failure. Your best bet is to send your Xbox into Microsoft to get it fixed. If your warranty is still active this will fix it. If your warranty no longer exists your best bet would be to find a local shop that can fix it or buy a new xbox (they have pretty much eliminated the RRD). Hope this helps.
First make sure how many lights are red, red ring of death with light up the player 1,3,and 4 slots. If all 4 are glowing try an av cable (sometimes rrd will look like all 4 are lit but look carefully and often the fourth slot is only reflected light). next log onto http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/nxe/registerdevice.aspx?step=repair and enter your console information. If the rrd warranty is still active, they will repair it for free (rrd is warranteed far beyond the normal console warranty, so be sure to try this before opening your console).
you probably did something to where you messed up your xbox motherboard, making it (after less then a minute of power) get short circuited and power fails. i would recommend getting it repaired by microsoft if you have a warranty.
What you have is called the RED RINGS of DEATH. Also known as RRD. If it is still under waranty, I would send it off to Microsoft to have it repaired. If it is not under waranty, you can find people on Craigslist that can repair the RRD for about $40-$50.
this sounds like your xbox is overheating. If you could try to run it in an area that has a lot of air that flows over the back. you could also plug in a usb fan on the back of the 360. note, if you continue to let the xbox overheat, this could lead to the rings of death which is three rings flashing. If that happens you have no hope. Hope this post helps.
