Hi Cindy...
You have the dreaded 3RLOD .
Microsoft has extended the warranty on these to 3 years.
Call and see if your's qualifies.
If not , you'll need to take it to a tech and have the hardware for the processors changed out.

My xbox ix switching on and shows three red rings and after 5 minutes the brick turn orange and it now has two red rings whay do i do to fix it


Thanks for your question. To fix the 3 red lights what you will need to do is stop the heat getting to the GPU and the CPU and to do this you can use a good Xbox 360 Repair guide or of course you can send it in.

3 red rings


The three flashing red lights indicates general hardware failure. You have three year warranty for your device, you might as well have it replaced as no particular solution is out yet for the infamous red rings of death...

Part of the outer ring is coloured red and the game wont work


Yikes! red ring is not good, if the whole ring is red you need to check your AV cables, three sections is the Red Ring of Death and you need to send your Xbox in for repairs(http://support.xbox.com/en-us/pages/xbox-360/troubleshoot/flashinglights.aspx). Off the top of my head I can't remember what the two or one red sections mean, I do know their not as serious as the three. my girlfriends freezes from time to time and red rings, but when we restart her system it all goes away (sometimes it still jams at the Xbox load screen)

When i play xboxlive it will freez then the screen will be green or red then i have to turn my xbox help


If this is what happens each time you use your your console, it might be broken. Does it have any red rings around the console's display? If that's the case, check out these links by Microsoft corresponding to the amount of red rings on your console:
1 red ring
2 red rings
3 red rings
4 red rings

They extended the warranty to three years from the purchase date for the three rings. Give them a call at 1-800-4MYXBOX and see if they can't help solve your problem. Hopefully you're still under warranty. Good Luck!

Has three red rings and it wont come on


this is a major hardware failure. luckily xbox has a 3 year warranty for this issue and if you call 1800 4 my xbox they will set up a repair order for your console.

on the other hand if its older than 3 years they will charge you 140 dollars to fix it.

Comes on for a few seconds then goes to two red rings 1 and 3


Then stay it away form any heat then have it have some space but dont over heat it then it will have three flashing lights and then if it has three flashing lights then you cant play anymore.

Green light doesn,t come on on front stays red


first solution was right in most respects but it matter how many of the lighta on the power button are on 1 or 2 lights may be fixable by making sure all of your components are firmly attached if there are three or four lights it is a critical hardware failure most likely caused by over heating . if you are still under warranty (red ring of death warranty is 3 years) then you can send it to microsoft and they will fix it . if you are not under warranty they will charge around $180
