I CAN FIX IT! There are links that show you how to repair this issue yourself (but they are not very clear and every thing is very fragile inside the XBOX 360) or you can contact me via reply on here and we can discuss the issue further as I recently repaired my XBOX 360 with the same issues and it works better than when was brand new.
Or you can google xbox 360 RRod issues it is a MS defect
When you say it will not pwer on do you mean nothing on the front panel lights up? No 2 red lights or 3 red lights? If the console itself will not turn on at all it sounds like there was either a voltage problem and a part of the Mobo was fried or the switch itself is broken. Try hitting the eject button, if the xbox powers on and the tray opens then you know it is the front switch. If nothing happens you have a very expensive paper weight unless you are still under warranty, in that case contact Microsoft customer service and get it sent in.
Two red indicator lights flash on the Ring of Light, or no lights flash on the Ring of Light.

Start the Xbox 360 console without a disc in the disc tray.
In the System section of the Xbox 360 Dashboard, select Console Settings.
In the Console Settings area, select Auto-Off.
Examine the option to see if it set for auto-off. If it is set for auto-off, change your selection.
the auto-off feature is not turned on and this is the first time the
Xbox 360 console has turned off unexpectedly, let's do a simple test
before we continue troubleshooting.
To do this test, turn the
Xbox 360 off for about 10 minutes. Then turn the console on and see if
the problem occurs again. If the Xbox 360 console turns off
unexpectedly again, make a note of how long the Xbox 360 console is on
before the console turns off automatically.
If the auto-off
feature is turned off but the problem happens again, check the
appearance of the Ring of Light to determine what to do next.
The two lights in the left quadrant of the Ring of Light flash red:
The internal temperature of the Xbox 360 console may be too high. In
this case, turn off the Xbox 360 console, and let it cool down. It may
take several hours for the console to cool enough.
sure that the ventilation openings on the console are not blocked. (For
example, the ventilation openings may be blocked if you place the Xbox
360 console on a soft surface, like a bed or a sofa.) Also make sure
that the console is not located in a poorly-ventilated place, such as
an enclosed bookcase or stereo cabinet. For more information about what
to do if the two red lights in the left quadrant on the Ring of Light
flash red, click the following article number to view the article in
the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
Two of the lights on the Ring of Light on the front of your Xbox 360 console flash red
No lights are flashing on the Ring of Light: In
this case, we should check the lights on the Xbox 360 power supply for
hints on how to fix the problem. A green light indicates that the power
supply is correctly functioning.
For more information about the power supply light, click the following
article numbers to view the articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

When you get any of these messages appearing on your screen with one red light flashing on the ROL of your Xbox 360 console that's an indicator of a hardware problem with the console connection to one of the parts connected to it as the hard drive or cables. So, first disconnect all power and AV cables from the back of your Xbox 360 console and also unplug the power cord from the wall socket, wait for a minute then reconnect them all back and try to turn on your Xbox 360 console once more.
If that doesn't work, it seems then to be a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so turn off the console again and remove the hard drive then turn on your Xbox 360 console without the hard drive, supposed then to work fine, it might be an intermittent issue and when you reconnect the hard drive your Xbox 360 will work fine all after, or it will just work fine without the hard drive so it will be then definitely a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so call Xbox 360 customer support to exchange the hard drive for you.
The number for Microsoft is usually listed on the back of any game manual.
I hope I was able to fixya problem, and Happy Gaming!

2 red lights flashing is'nt too bad of a deal. just reposition your xbox 360 to a place where more airflow can get to it. plus, dont have anything that gives off heat near the xbox 360, thats vary important to give it room for cool air. it worked for me
