Question about Microsoft Xbox® 360 Core System Console
I was playing my xbox and froze up then cut it off restarted it it did it agian then it let me about 2 mins did it agian so unplgged plugged it in then the 3 red rings apeared
This has happened to me with 2 consoles so I know this problem well... the sad thing is there is nothing you can do to fix it. The red ring of death means it's a hard drive error, Microsoft has made it so that only they can fix or replace harddrives. Call the Microsoft hotline and they will tell you where to bring it to get it fixed. For me they just gave me a brand new one even though the warranty had expired, but this was several years ago and I live in Hong Kong so it's probably different in the US.

SOURCE: Xbox 360 3 Red rings of death
If the warranty sticker is still in place behind the faceplate and the console has not been modded you may still be in warranty.
3 rings of death is now covered by a 3 year warranty and not the standard 1 year, this will only apply to the 3 rings of death, all other faults or defects are covered by 1 year.
Just call MS and explain that you have the 3 rings of death (This is providing you have not broken the warranty sticker as per above).
Please rate my solution when possible....!

3 Red lights problem is one of the most common problem of Xbox 360. 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 3 Flashing red lights problem yourself with the help of DIY Video guide available on Internet. You can fix yourself without any technical knowledge.

just let it cool down,
two red light means that the internal temperature for the console just exceeded..
let it cooldown for a day..
when you use it, make sure there is no appliance near it...

I tried to follow some video tutorials from youtube but none of them worked. So I realised I'd have to spend some money on real tutorials and tools. I was a little sceptical but I bought it any way and it worked just fine.
Eventually you'll have to spend some money on it. I recommend you get your hands on this set, you'll get your guides and tolls and it's all you need to fix it at home.
