If you're talking about the Red Ring of Death (three red lights on the ring of light on the front) then you have become one of the many Xbox owners with this problem. This is caused by one of two things, the first being a cable not being fully connected (just disconnect all the cables and turn it back on) or its the video chipset overheating (most common reason). Its not easily fixable, it requires a bit of modding inside the Xbox, not something easily done by everyone. If its no longer under warranty you can certainly search about the RRoD fix and if you feel comfortable with it, go for it, either way you can't lose, you have a fixed Xbox or you have a broken Xbox and you've not really lost anything (other than about 5 bucks for the parts needed).

Hello my xbox 360 has got 3 red led how can i mend it

Yes, the three red flashing lights mean nothing else than "Red Ring of Death" (general hardware failure). You can post your xbox to home rapair "centers" but I wouldn't recomend that. When my x360 broke for the first time I sent it to some guy who was supposed to be "pro". I waited for 3 weeks an end up paying way to much than I should. It broke down again after a year and I decided to tray and repair it myself.

The most common mistake that beginners make is that they buy tutorials and repair sets from diffrent websites. (Diferent repair guides require diffrent repair tools). I tried a few of them and I think this X360 Fix Kit is simply the best thing you can get for the price. You'll get evreything you need with repair kit and easy to foolow lessons. Good luck.

WTF this morning i plugged in my 360 and it just made a hum sound and the thing doesnt turn ON ! LIKE not even A LIGHT , i cant tell if the power brick light is orange or red it worked fine like 5 hours...

yes that is a complete possibility. Ensure that the xbox power brick is not flashing red and is just on the standby orange color. Id recommend calling the people where you can get your xbox fixed for 60-100 dollars. I have used them before and found there work to be excellent and reliable. They fix all problems as i have seen many xbox's that have stopped working (mainly halo and older elite editions) not RROD either. If its broke they will fix it :).

first though some trouble shooting.

ensure that all cables are properly plugged in. video and power.

Red ring o death

Taking the xbox 360 apart voids warranty, so i strongly suggest that you don't.

If you have red rings then it's best to phone the Microsoft Support Line for assistance.

*There are a number of 'fixes' with videos on youtube.

Try squeezing the side of the 360 firmly, this may solve your problem. Anymore questions just post again.
