Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Ok i just fixed the rrod for my xbox 360. now i have 2 red lights. everything powers up and then the 2 red lights (lights 1 and 3) and then the power supply goes from a green light to a yellow light.
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
