You have the red ring of death.
Your xbox isn't getting enough power or the xbox is overheating...
There was a design issue with the older xbox's that caused them to overheat.
If you can return it or exchange it it would recommend doing that.
If not, I used this method to get mine working:
It was a weekend project. My xbox worked for a short time after then died again.

SOURCE: Xbox will not turn on
The 360 was not properly tested before shipped to stores meaning it has alot of problems. It probably over heated(left on over night) which caused the dvd drive to overheat, frying the laser and or more. I suggest returning it to the store, or sell it on ebay and buy a used one. sorry I could help more, but as far as I know fixing this is risky and costly, I would have to say buy a new one or a different console.

SOURCE: red light on my xbox 360
Turn console of, hold sync button down wich is the small white button next memory card slots, while holding turn on console and wait till it boots. If this does not work go to system blade, select memory, press y on the HD symbol, press xx left bumper right bumper xx, select yes. This will restart your console from scratch though all profiles and saved data will be lost, but it will clear any corupt data.

what you need to do is disconnect the xbox from your tv and wrap it in 2 towels turn it on and leave it for 30 to 45 min it should be very hot after you can feel the heat through the towels turn it off. DONT take off the towels let it sit and cool for an hour reconnect it and play. this may not work but it most likely will if it does not work you need to buy a new xbox
