Those are the red rings of death means that your xbox either overheated or malfunctioned. Now this might sound crazy but wrap the 360 in dry towels and keep the 360 on for 20 mins with the towel then unplugg it then let it sit then turn it on if its still like that send it to microsoft to get it fixed.

Red Ring of Death : 1 Red Light

Well the why part of your question can be answered here -

They go into many of the error codes, as to how to fix it without voiding the warranty; If it's under warranty send it in to be fixed, or if you're dying to play right now try the 'towel method' shown here -

Beware- purposefully overheating your xbox 360 may damage your system further.

Please rate my response :)

Three red rings flashing

if it is red(or darker orange) you have the three rings of death most of the time that means to send your x-box back to the manufacturer. but call Microsoft first.

X box 360

18004MYXBOX, this is the Xbox support center and they will either know exactly what to do or will have you ship it off to get it fixed(its usually under warranty and free). I had a similar problem where my xbox would work fine but just wouldnt read any of my disc no matter what is was.

Flashing red ring on x box 360 console

3 Blinking red lights often means that your Xbox 360 has suffered from hardware failure.

4 Blinking red lights means that your Audio / Video cable is not correctly connected (it's the colorful one; Red, white, yellow; green, blue, red if Component)

If it IS just three lights, and you bought your xbox 360 under three years ago, call 1-800-4MY-XBOX

Check the disk. if it has a bis ring arond the disk it is screwed. this is caused by moving the xbox before the disk has stopped spinning.

Rings of death

We rent out a hundred or so of these consoles.
Three red lights means the cpu has moved away from it's socket.
Very common in the earlier models. (caused by excessive heat)
Microsoft has agreed to fix this problem free of charge even if the warranty has expired.
I read the e-mail Harvey Norman recieved but you should be able to check it out on x-box site or check where you purchased the console.
