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.

SOURCE: how do I fix the three red light error on my xbox

If you have the 3 red light error it is caused by the GPU and the CPU, which are the 2 main chips overheating, to fix it you need to stop the heat.

You can do this yourself or send it in and they will fix it for you.

My xbox 360 has three blinking red lights and it wont work at all


Just do a google search for the rrod. There are many helpful sites and tutorials to walk you thru fixing it. If it is still under warranty I would have xbox fix it for free. I believe they have extended their warranty to three years on defective xbox 360 consoles. If your out of warranty though, you may want to try one of the fixes. I had to do the x clamp fix to get mine going again. Good Luck!

Three red light`s on xbox 360 console how can i fix the problem


How to Fix Xbox 360 3 Red Lights
Appearance of the three blinking red lights on your Xbox 360 game console is a familiar problem and in this article I will try to offer some solutions to rectify this nagging problem.
The 3 blinking red lights point to an internal error and might be ascribed to common breakdown of hardware.
Try out this simple fix if you like:
Step one will involve removal of memory units and hard drive.
At step 2, under the system blade run the INITIAL SETUP.
At step three involves declining the insertion of memory unit or HDD prompt offer with a negative reply when the prompt creates the automatic offer.
Finally you need to sync the controller & pop in a game.
Due to the widespread occurrence of the three red light fault, Microsoft is offering a new 3 year free warranty.

When i turned on my xbox 360 three red lights came on the console


When someone say that his/her Xbox is having three 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 three Flashing red lights problem yourself with the help of DIY Video guide available on Internet.

3 red lights on my xbox 360 please help


Hey cozierterry,

While this may be an indicator that something is wrong with your Xbox 360, there are a couple of things that you may want to consider before seeking additional assistance.

According to information provided by the manufacturer, the light on your Xbox 360's power supply should still light up green even when the console has encountered a three red light problem. If the light on the power supply isn't green, you will want to take different actions based on what color is displayed. If this light is red, the AC adaptor may either be defective or has recently overheated. If the light is orange, you may need to double-check all cable connections are secure. If the light on the AC adaptor isn't lit, the AC adaptor may need to be replaced.

Alternatively, you may want to try turning the Xbox 360 off, then pressing the power button again roughly 10-15 seconds later. If the unit powers on normally and the three red lights disappear, the system may simply have needed to be reset.

Should the problem persist however, you may need to speak directly with Microsoft for further assistance, as three red lights often indicate a hardware failure that requires repairs. You can reach Microsoft's toll-free Xbox support hotline at 800-4MY-XBOX (800-469-9269), or you can always request service through the Xbox website:

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

and if you do try to fix it yourself, or you've voided the warranty ( by already opening it) make sure you DON"T do the " towel Fix " it will only make things worse. you need to do an X Clamp repair. It's simple. I had no experiance whatsoever.with electronics. and I was able to figure it out the first time I tried it. I did it three weeks ago and my X box is quieter than ever and it works fine. so serach on you tube " X Box 360 X clamp fix " and you should see what you need to fix your problem.
