2 red lights is overheating you can try and leave the console alone and see if that cools it down, sometimes this will work.
If it does not you will need to get it fixed and to do this you should use a good Xbox 360 Repair guide or send it in.

When i turn it on i get the red screen serious error .I have done the hold this for that time and resetted, at least tried everything. The last thing i did was adjusted the audio in modern warfare 2...

This is called the "PS3 Red Screen Of Death" it's the same as the 360's RROD. The best solution would be to contact Sony about it and they should resolve the issue.It is usually a hardware issue.

I had 3 rings in the xbox ROD. i now have 1, what do i do? i did the steps of unplugging and unconnecting. i still have 1 light in the ROD.

Nothing much you can do other than get it repaired. If its in warrenty (check on the 360 webpage) then MS will fix for free. If not then search ebay for RROD. I got mine reparied for $25 plus shipping. Its been good ever since.

Xbox broke

Have a look on Ebay for a rrod repair kit. A lot of these come with instructions, also look on YouTube and type in Xbox 360 repair. There are a few videos that show you how to fix it.

My xbox 360 has no video or sound... No splash screen, nothing... Just a black screen.. No RROD.. I tried 3 av cables and same result.. plaese help

Probably the same problem as the RROD, just without the lights. Reflowing the CPU and GPU and replacing the thermal compound with Artic silver 5 should fix the problem.

E74 error how to sort it

This is the replacement code that came with the update replacing the RROD or Red Ring of Death. You have to send it in under the 3 year extended warranty Microsoft implemented due to all the RRODs they were producing.
To confirm your console is displaying the E74 error message, follow these steps:
  1. Turn off the console.
  2. Turn on the console.
  3. Verify that your console displays the E74 error message.
If your console continues to display the E74 error message, it requires a repair. For more information about how to start the online repair process, please visit the appropriate Web site:

My xbox 360 when i turn it on the power button goes red

You've got the Red Ring of Death (RRoD error message).

Connect your 360 to a TV or whatever you normally display it on. Try turning it on, and it should come up with a black screen. On the screen there should be an error message. Look at the code on the bottom. This code is extremely important, so write it down. The code will be an 'E' something, followed by two numbers.

Call Microsoft about it, and they can arrange to collect your Xbox 360 for you and send it off for repair. If the console is within a one year warranty, all repairs are free.

If the error is an E74, and you are out of warranty, don't panic! Microsoft have a 3 year warranty included for free, provided you have the E74 error.

The US Microsoft number is 1-800-MY-XBOX, I think.

My xbox 360 reads dvds but does not read the games

Ok so two Xboxes: 1 with RROD and one with Disc problem...

1) RROD :- There isn't much you can do to fix this one. Call Microsoft at 1-800-4-MYXBOX to see if the 3 year warranty is still available for you console (it's 3 years + 90 days of RROD and E74 Error Warranty).

If you;'re out of lucky and your warranty is void, you can open up the console and under the cpu and the graphics card put this thermal solution (this is thermal solution and it keeps the cpu and gpu (graphics processing unit) cool

Watch this video on how to apply the thermal paste and how to open up the console.

Or if you need a temporary fix (works temporarily...) you can do the towel trick.

2) Disc Error :- I have the same error. You can do three things.

A) You have to keep turning it on and off. Here's how... Turn it on, then click open tray then close tray ( keep opening and closing tray about 10 times) then turn the console off. Then keep repeating process for about 15-20 minutes and eventually the game disc will show up. ( I have to do this every time)

B) Make sure that this is covered by Microsof't's RROD warranty. Then some how get teh red rings on this console and send it to Microsoft. (Note: I am not held responsible for your actions.)

C) This is a lens problem. So go out to a store and buy a DVD lens cleanser. It's a disc that cleans the lenses of the DVD or the XBOX.

This took me awhile to type so please be nice and take 10 secs of your life to rate this solution.

XBOX buzzes loudly then freezes. Screen turns Green.

If you under warranty send it back NOW before it does something that MS
will not cover

if you broke the seal than get a proper x clamp mod
it will fix 99% of most problems . I know ,that's what i have
been doing for the last 2 years.
