Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
I was playing my xbox and then it froze so i restarted it and it has three red rings now please help
When someone say that his/her Xbox is having 3 red lights
problem, It means it needs to be repaired. If you are using Cooler than
it is not a cure but a prevention. You could have used cooler before
acutally having the problem just to prevent your Xbox. But now you will
have to either get it repaired from Microsoft (in case your Xbox's
warranty is not expired, but one thing to note is that you will have to
wait for at least 3-4 weeks to get back your Xbox) or you can Fix your
Xbox's 3 Flashing red lights problem yourself with the help of DIY Video guide available on Internet. You can fix yourself without any technical knowledge.

@portialumzy, 3 red lights are one of the most common problemofMicrosoft Xbox 360.Generally it is because of Overheatingproblem,while playingcontinuous gaming session. As the heat sink issmallenough to carrythe heat so it gets overheated very easily. Thisproblemcan be avoidedby using a fan with the console but as your Xboxisalready affectedwith 3 red lights problem, You can either sendyourXbox to Microsoft(in case your warranty is not expired and youdon'thave any problem inwaiting for 3-4 weeks)
If you can't waitforweeks to get yourxbox repaired, I would suggest you to check out aDIYguide that willhelp you fixing the problem as they claim. I knowsuchguide, Check outfrom Xbox Fix Guide
