2 red lights on part 1 and 3 indicate the the console is overheating, the most common problem is the thermal paste.

You need thermal paste or it will overheat instantly, using cheap thermal paste or not using enough thermal paste will also cause problems. Use good quality paste and apply enough to make contact. You don't want to use too much, but if you use too little it won't make good contact with the heatsinks.

If you've done this before then it shouldn't take too long, but if you haven't then just take your time. You don't want to put too much on at first so do it bit by bit.

If you're still getting this error after correcting with thermal paste then the only suggestion would be to contact Microsoft but then they might not take the 360 after you have already void any warranty by opening up the console.

On XBOX 360 you also need to replace the thermal pads. You can either purchase a set of thermal pads specially for XBOX 360 or you can replace them with a gummy thermal paste that is specially designed for thermal pad replacement like K5-PRO. You can see a video about this thermal paste on youtube here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7gD4ZBOp-bE

Flashing red power light when I turn the game on


You got what people call RROD (Red Ring of Death) Very common with this model and Microsoft has extended the warranty to 3 years to fix if you have not opened it yourself.  The flaw is internal and nothing you have done unless you been wrastling with the thing or spilled liquid on it.

Three red lights


Follow this steps:

1. Turn off the xbox 360, disconnect the cables wait for 20 seconds reconnect the cables and turn it back on.

2. Check the light on the power supply ( The big brick that goes to your wall )
If the light is green that means the power supply is OK
If the light is Red that means the power supply needs to be replaced

3. If above steps doesn't work, you need to contact xbox customer support to get your xbox repaired
and shipping and handling will be covered.

Good Luck

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

Problem with Power supply


No, The best thing to do is unplug the power supply completely. Every cord from every cord. Then plug everything in back together. The power supply does this to protect the Xbox from surging internally. If this occurs, the whole system would be fried.
