Weel you see i had the same problem, and it is because of the heatsinc unit in your x box over heating not your xbox. you can send it back to microsoft if you have a warrenty and they will fic it, or you can do what i did but my warrenty was out of date, i opend up my xobox and reversed the cooling fans, you can find ou thow to open your xbox on you tube or google it, but when you do get it open take the big white plastic piece out open the tabs for the cooling fans and reverse it so the air blows on the inside. i did this and my xbox is working like it was new. only do this if your xbox is out of warrenty though. i am not responisble for what you do to your xbox. this is just a suggestion.

Unfortunately there is nothing that you can directly do to fix this problem.

You have a hardware failure. Microsoft will repair your unit for you under warranty / recall.

When you Ring of Death fix a 360 there are three types of screws on the bottom of the metal casing. Small black ones, short silver/bronze ones, and long silver/bronze ones. After your done X-Clamp fixing it, if you screw the short silver/bronze screws in too much, the screws ground the motherboard to the metal casing. Unscrew the short bronze ones a little bit and then try it. The 2 rings are a "False Overheat". I guarantee you, after you unscrew the short bronze ones that your 360 will not give you the error. Also do not put the small black screws in. They are not needed after you fix it. I wish you the best of luck.

One red light signifies a major hardware failure or system error[4] , depending on which hardware failure or system error it is depends on how the problem can be fixed but in some cases there is no easy recovery and the console must be repaired or replaced. Two means the console is overheating and must be switched off and left to cool. Three, the infamous 'Red Ring of Death', means a general hardware failure and the console must be sent to Microsoft for repairs. All four red lights simply means that the console cannot detect its AV cable.

SOURCE: how to fix the 3 red rings of death on the xbox 360

I tried to follow some video tutorials from youtube but none of them worked. So I realised I'd have to spend some money on real tutorials and tools. I was a little sceptical but I bought it any way and it worked just fine.
Eventually you'll have to spend some money on it. I recommend you get your hands on this set, you'll get your guides and tolls and it's all you need to fix it at home.

SOURCE: how to fix xbox 360 ring of death

Hello, and thanks for using FixYa.

The 3 red lights flashing on the front the xbox 360 are caused by overheating, cooling, overheat and cooling again, at some point the solder in the gpu or cpu gets out of place and couses this error.

To solve the problem you need to overheat the console again, so that the chips get back to their right spots and that the soder also gets to where it belongs.

Thsi is best done with the machine taken apart but it can also be done by blocking the ventilation holes on the unit, so that it overheats. Its not the best solution but it does work, but its not a permanent solution either, it may very likely come black. Basically the chips need to be reflown - heated up properly so that the soder melts and restores to where its supposed to be.

Microsoft offers 3 year warranty for this fault, if you are in warranty please contact them to get it repaired free of charge as far as I know. Outside of warranty they will charge you.

Thanks,
Ekse
