Well I have understood when you get the three lights and the fans are not working you have to try fixing the first posibilities, like reflowing CPU, GPU, and RAM if one of these do not fix the problem then your motherboard has one MOSFET mess up and need to be replace. When you have overheating problems and your fans are not working, well this is not going to sound so good but helps a lot, what you have to do is cut off the cables from the fan and take the cables out and get them conected to some AC Adaptor and set it to 6V, so this will resolve your problems with overheating. Hope this help.
I short circuited my positive and red wires to my fans (which are 5.5 and i though they were 12 volts) while trying to wire in leds like a ********, is there some sort of voltage regulator that fried? because as soon as i turn on my xbox my voltage meter says that there's about 10.5 volts coming from the fan pins. When I put any sort of load on to the pins, like a fan or a couple of leds in series its like the pins short circuit and im left with .80 volts. then I have to restart my xbox to get 10.5 volts again. btw this is a jasper console. So im guessing its a voltage regulator or a transistor located near the ran pins.

This problem occurs when the external power supply has detected a
fault. The power supply has several built-in safeguards to help prevent
damage to either the console or to the power supply. The power supply
will turn off if one of the following conditions is true:
• There is too much current.
• The voltage is too high.
• The temperature of the power supply is too high.
When any of these conditions are true, the light on the power supply
turns red. Here are some steps that you can use to try to fix the
Step 1: Make sure that the power supply is cool
The red light might indicate that the power supply is too hot or that
it has overheated. Follow these steps if the power supply light is red:
1. Make sure that your Xbox 360 console is turned off.
2. Disconnect your Xbox 360 Power Supply from your Xbox 360 console and from the wall outlet.
3. Let the power supply cool for two hours in a well-ventilated space.
Do not connect the Xbox 360 power supply to the console or to the wall
outlet during this time.
4. After the power supply has cooled for two hours, reconnect the Xbox 360 Power Supply to the console and to the wall outlet.
If cooling the power supply does not resolve the problem or if the problem persists, use the steps in the next section.
Step 2: Make sure that the power supply is plugged in correctly
Make sure that the power supply is directly plugged into a working wall
outlet. You may have problems with the power supply if you use an
extension cord or a power strip if the extension cord or the power
strip is faulty or cannot supply the required power to the console.
If the power supply is still not working as expected, use the steps in the next section.
Step 3: Plug the power supply into a different wall outlet
To eliminate the possibility that the wall outlet you are using is
faulty or that there is a blown fuse, plug the power cord into a
different wall outlet in a different area of your place of residence.
If this does not resolve the problem, use the steps in the next section.
Step 4: Try another Xbox 360 Power Cord and Xbox 360 Power Supply
If you have a different Xbox 360 Power Cord and Xbox 360 Power Supply,
try to use them to test the console. If the console turns on when you
use a different power cord and power supply, you need to replace the
faulty power cord and power supply. If the console does not turn on,
the issue may be with the console itself.
If this does not resolve the problem, use the steps in the next section.
Step 5: Obtain a replacement Xbox 360 Power Supply
If the steps in this article did not resolve the issue and the Xbox 360
Power Supply light continues illuminate red, you need to obtain a
replacement power supply.
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks
Got kind of bad news , It is the power supply ,but it's the power supply
in side the box itself. It's more than likely a shorted regulator specifically
one of the 12 volt liner reg chips , I had to swap a few out to resolve
this a few times.
I had this problem. Make sure the pins in the USB ports (2 on the front and 1 on the back of the console) aren't bent and there's nothing obstructing them. I unbent some of the metal inside these ports, and voila! I have a working xbox.
Two red indicator lights flash on the Ring of Light, or no lights flash on the Ring of Light.

the auto-off feature is not turned on and this is the first time the
Xbox 360 console has turned off unexpectedly, let's do a simple test
before we continue troubleshooting.
To do this test, turn the
Xbox 360 off for about 10 minutes. Then turn the console on and see if
the problem occurs again. If the Xbox 360 console turns off
unexpectedly again, make a note of how long the Xbox 360 console is on
before the console turns off automatically.
If the auto-off
feature is turned off but the problem happens again, check the
appearance of the Ring of Light to determine what to do next.
The two lights in the left quadrant of the Ring of Light flash red:
The internal temperature of the Xbox 360 console may be too high. In
this case, turn off the Xbox 360 console, and let it cool down. It may
take several hours for the console to cool enough.
sure that the ventilation openings on the console are not blocked. (For
example, the ventilation openings may be blocked if you place the Xbox
360 console on a soft surface, like a bed or a sofa.) Also make sure
that the console is not located in a poorly-ventilated place, such as
an enclosed bookcase or stereo cabinet. For more information about what
to do if the two red lights in the left quadrant on the Ring of Light
flash red, click the following article number to view the article in
the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
Two of the lights on the Ring of Light on the front of your Xbox 360 console flash red
No lights are flashing on the Ring of Light: In
this case, we should check the lights on the Xbox 360 power supply for
hints on how to fix the problem. A green light indicates that the power
supply is correctly functioning.

there could be hardware problems! mine never gave the two lights when it started it but when playing certain games it overheated and thats whats happening.. i got upset and opened mine up[ voids warrenty for three red lights] and added a 3 inch fan with a 12 v converter for its on power. i set it in on the heat sink and the bottom right corner of the xbox..
so i think you should get a powerful 3inch by 3inch fan with its on power supply and set ur xbox so you can point the fan at the bottom of the xbox! this will help! dont open ur xbox just set a powerful fan[ radio shack, walmart, hardware store] and let it cool the bottom of ur xbox!!!!!!!!
1. 12 v dc brushless fan
1. 12 volt ac power adapter that hooks up to the wall and the fan for a Direct Current!
thats it may cost over 20 and walmart is cheap and a little less quality
but as long as air pushing on the bottom of ur xbox is moving fast[ dont put the fan to close] so heat is transfered ur good
Alright, lets fix this!
