This is called the "Red Ring of Death," and it happens when your Xbox overheats. To fix this, you need to either get a new console or have a professional come in and work on it. To prevent this from happening, don't be on Xbox so long or buy an internal fan.

turn it on and wrap it with 2 towels for 20 minutes(the idea is to overheat it), then unrap the towels and let it cool down for 20 minutes. Then, walla it works.

SOURCE: e74 and 4 red ring Xbox 360

the a/v card is faulty, there is a chip called " ana or hana " and that goes bad.
the best solution is either to send it to microsoft " they will charge you around $ 100 - $ 150.- " to fix it, or to find the chip and replace it.
there is hope though try another a/v cabel, borrow one or something, your cable may be damaged. if the new cable doesn't work then " 100 % sure is the chip " is very common problem.
i have one with that issues and bought another 360 " broken " and i am going to try to switch a/v cards.

3 rings would be the ol' Red Ring of Death, while 4 rings means the AV cables are not detected.

Comcast remote's ok button doesn't work with xbox 360

Sorry, the Red Button won't work, but you can map the A button on the Comcast remote instead. It's almost the same thing... Your fingers will barely know the difference.

1. Press the Aux button at the top of the remote.

2. Hold the Setup button until the Aux button flashes twice.

3. Enter 994 on the keypad. The Aux button will flash twice again.

4. Now push the Setup button once. Enter 00001.

Finally, push the A button The Aux button will flash twice. You now have the A / Select / OK / Green button mapped on the Xbox360.

--If you want to switch the A button back to default, just do the same sequence but this time push the A button twice.--

Xbox 360-Red to Green

Look on the back of your tv and make sure that the red and blue cables are plugged into the right slot on the back of your tv. This would be the most common cause for something like this that you are describing.
