Those would be the "red lights of death". They mean that there's either a software problem or a hardware problem, depending on the number of lights and their sequence. What I would do is google it. Find a site that will tell you what's wrong with it. If not, then you can always send it back to Microsoft and they'll fix it for a fee...
the 4 red rings means that the av cable on your xbox cant be be detected, try to unplug it from the xbox and plug it back in. if that doesnt work if you have another xbox try hooking it up to that one, to see if you might have a bad cable. or try cleaning the metal part of the cable with a dry cloth. if nothing works i would do 1 of 2 things. 1. get a new av cable for the xbox, or 2 trying and get a replacement from microsoft.
The two red flashing lights on the left side of the circle indicate the thermal limit has been reached. (over-heating) Check to see if the fan on the back of the unit is blowing air. There are external fans that can be added to keep the GPU. (Graphics Processing Unit) and CPU (Central Processing Unit) temp down. Keeping the temp down can prevent the dreaded RRD. (Red Ring of Death) Here is link as an example of a cooling fan. http://www.gamerepairparts.com/xbox-360-cooling-.html Shop around and find one that you like. Remember, when it comes to these computer chips, cooler is safer.
if you have 3 flashing red lights your machine has a hardware failure which means unfortuanatly your beloved is dead. in which case take it back to the shop and demand a new one. this is a very common problem.
if its only one red light the problem is your av/component cables are not connected correctly....good luck
