This is the classic 3 Red lights of Death(3RLOD), Typically meaning the processors did not pass the Power on Self test (POST). Do not do the towel trick, it will completely destroy the motherboard.
So many websites are posting procedures for X-Clamp mod and I believe most of them are not thorough enough to solve the problem. Contact Info@PlaystationClinic.com on this issue. You need a X-Clamp modification, or send it back to Microsoft.

Red rings


Depending on how many you have it means different things:

1 red light - scaler chip E74

2 red lights - overheating

3 red lights GPU and CPU have burnt out

4 red lights - the AV cable is not in correctly

You can fix all of these errors yourself or you can send it in to have it repaired

3 red lights are on the front of the xbox and i cant play help


This means you left your XBOX on too long and it over heated. This is any easy fix, leave your Exbox 360 off for about Half an hour, and It should be fine. If you like playing for Long periods of time, I prefer getting a stand for it, it has a switch thats will blow a fan into the xbox.

But also, don't mess with your exbox to much when the 3 lights come on, you might make a spark and 4 lights will show. By then, you would have to take it to a shop or get a new one.

Beep 3 times turns green yellow then blinks red then turns to a solid red wont turn on wont give me game


3 Solid Red lights usually means that a cable is unplugged. Check all cables (unplug and plug back in)...you may need to replace power cable if issue is still ocurring. If it is 3 Flashing red lights, this is known as the Red Rings of Death, i.e. your XBOX is dead and needs to be completely replaced.

Exbox 360 4 red ligths


4 red light is a problem with your AV cable.
THINGS TO TRY
  1. Make sure that the AV cable is correctly connected to the xbox 360
  2. Disconnect the AV cable from the Xbox 360 console, and then reconnect the AV cable to the Xbox 360 console.
  3. If the four flashing red lights continue to flash, try wiping the metal area of the AV pack with a dry cloth. The metal area is the end that plugs into the console. Wipe the metal area thoroughly, and then try the AV Pack again.
  4. If the AV cable is correctly connected but the four red lights are still flashing, substitute a different AV cable if you have one available.

    You can also check to see what the error code is yourself if your not sure whats wrong with it.

    To do this, you turn your x-box on, press the Connect button on the console itself and hold it in. Now press the DVD eject button to and look at the lights. it should be flashing 1 light, 2 lights, 3 lights, or 4 lights. grab a piece of paper and write down how many lights are showing. While still holding the connect button, press the eject button again. Write down how many lights are showing again. Then press eject again, and write it down. Then do it one more time and write it down. After you do this, then come back on fixya.com and let me know what error code it is.

    1 Red light = 1
    2 Red lights = 2
    3 Red lights = 3
    4 red lights = 0

    so an example of what you might write down would be:
    0
0
0
1

which would be 0001.

If you figure out the error, you can also visit the following website and determine what it is and if you can fix it yourself:
