Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
My 360 is not old at all and was working just fine until today where it started doing this stupid 3 rings of red light ****!
so I turned it off because I heard that was a bad thing. Later i tried turning it on again and this time the stupid thing wont even turn on?????!!!
Thanks for using FixYa. This error code responds to Hardware failure and possibly the GPU failure (Graphics processing unit). This is also called as 3 rings of death. The issue is heat, and what you need to do is take your system apart, clean off the GPU and motherboard, and put a spacer (like a washer) between the heat sink and the motherboard. This will allow "breathing" and keep the motherboard cooler. (Remember this will void your warranty if it’s under warranty). However, if you send this to microsoft they'll do it for free but would take around 2-3 months to return it.
Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.
