Flashing red light around the power button

Its the Red Ring of Death. It can be fixed but extremly complicated and I definatly dont recommend attemoting it but will provide a link of a video that shows you how WARNING you need special tools to take the 360 aprt.

Red light flashing on my xbox

you have the three rings of death. im surprised you dont know what this is. common to all microsoft xbox users.its a hardrive failure which happens after overheating and long gameplay and etc. 3 out of the 4 rings light up and blink. the only solution to this is to send it in to microsoft and theyll fix it for you. free if you have warranty but if u dnt then idk. keep on pressing the power button because in some cases after a while it comes green.

3 red lights flashing

well you can call the xbox assitance and they will tell you to put in the xbox serial number, your state, adress, etc. you have the 3 rings of death, so what they will do they will send you a box for you to put your xbox and send it back to get it fixed, this only works if you have the 1 year warranty, if you do they will fix it for free, if you dont you have to pay, but its worth it.
