Me and a friend have fixed my Xbox360 after having a 3 ROD issue. It whent from 3 to 2, and now it wont get out.
I know that the 2 lights mean that it's Overheated, but the Xbox is well ventilated and it's not even warm. As sson as I push the power button, the red lights come on, and about 5 seconds later, the fan shuts off and the power brick goes on standby. I'm assuming this is the Xbox's way of dealing with Overheats, shutting down any electrical connection. I dont know how to fix it.
I have an idea of letting it sit over night, the power on but letting it do it's job, hoping that it may realise there's nothing wrong with the heating.
If anyone has any solutions, or explanations to what is happening, I'd love to hear them. Dankeschön!

The three red lights mean that your XBOX360 is experiencing hardware failure. This is caused by overheating of your XBOX. Contact Microsoft and have them fix the problem. They have given free extended warranty for three red light problems. If you have bought your xbox360 within 3 years, you're in luck.. They will fix your console for free...
the "3 rings of death" or the so called "3 red lights" is actually caused by GPU overheating and mainboard flexing. When you need to do is open your xbox360 (warning, this will void your warranty) add more cooling fan inside your xbox360, you'd want to use 80mm fans coz they fit perfectly. you can fit up to two 80mm fans inside your xbox360.
Also, if you notice that your xbox360's mainboard is warped you need to fix this by disconnecting all the connections from the board. then place the board on a flat surface. then use a hair drier to heat the board and flat it out. its kinda complicated. hehe, at least you now have an idea on whats causing the 3 red lights...
