When someone say that his/her Xbox is having red ring 3 problem, It means it needs to be repaired. If you are using Cooler thanit is not a cure but a prevention. You could have used cooler beforeacutally having the problem just to prevent your Xbox. But now you willhave to either get it repaired from Microsoft (in case your Xbox'swarranty 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 yourXbox'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.

What you are experiencing is known as the Red Ring of Death. You 360 has malfunctioned for one reason or another and no longer works. You can call 1-800-4-MY-XBOX (1-800-469-9269) or go to the support page listed at the bottom and click "repair my console" and they will repair it for free. The only downside is that you will have to wait a couple weeks (usually no more than two) for it to come back. Everything is paid for by Microsoft, including shipping. Sorry about your inconvenience.
