This is why I recommend sending it to repair centers. It may cost more but in the long run you get a warranty and less problems.
Your washers are probably shorting out against the metal case.

My xbox 360 has 3 rrod and the error code is 0010 said to be overheating, but when turned on the red lights come on but nothing else. Left it running for 30 mins and heat sinks were cool as ice!! Also...

Hi, If you still have the manufacturer's warranty from microsoft. Get a replacement for the Power supply. Or if you have other power supply available. Say, like try borrowing one from a friend. Try that. The issue here is on the power supply.

My xbox 360 delays everytime it powers up when you turn it on the middle of the power button turns green fan comes on takes 1 min for the outer rings to turn green and full turn on have tried different...

Sounds like you have a GPU problem. Sorry to tell you this, but this problem usually leads to the red rings of death. If you still have warrenty you should probly sent it in for repair. If not then you should try the x clamp fix. Just look it up on youtube. It will work I am 100% sure. Just make sure you follow the directions correctly. This shoud fix your problem and prevent you from getting the RROD

360 won't turn on

Sounds like you fried your Xbox. You are right though, the lights should at least come on. You can try the new power brick and if that doesn't work then your xbox may have blown something, in which case your best and safest bet is to replace it. Sorry.

Power brick going red right as its plugged in

Sound like a short fet /L.D.O.R or a solder bridge under one of
the chips , you "worked" if you used a heat gun , there
is more than likely sever board warpage. A scratched
or broken trace will not trip the 1.8- 3.3 volt standby over current
(red light on the brick) it's normally a solder bridge.
but i could be wrong ,hard to tell with out line tracing
the caps with a scope.

2 Red lights for player1 and player2

Check the light on the power supply and if its orange that means that the console is on stand by mode, The light on the Power brick should be green when the console turns on. if the light turns red that means that the power supply needs to be replaced. call xbox support and check the warranty status of your 360
