Well the first thing you should do is call microsoft support and if it is under warranty, then they can fix it for you otherwise there are many other places that can fix it that I know of, but opening it yourself requires too much work so don't attempt it as the warranty will be void. It is an hardware issue though.

It is kepp saying error error and showing red color please fix it we did not play for it a year

if you are having the 3 or 4 red lights that is what is know as the RED RING OF DEATH. it is a major problem with the xbox360. it was so bad that microsoft extended the warranty to three years. the three year warranty program ended for most people but they do still cover for a year. if you didn't have it for more than a year give microsoft a call and they'll fix it under warranty. that is your best option.

Its got one redring

Might be E74 error, can be fixed usually via reflowing the board. could also be another error, though MOST problems can be fixed via reflowing.
there is a great 6part video guide on YouTube to view for free. 6 videos from the same fellow, each video is a few mins long, and goes over everything for you. and its free unlike some eBook site.

I actually used the same method to fix over 450 Xbox360 units with no problems at all, barring a few (but i have done nearly 500 so you expect a few problems along the way), you just need a few things though like a heat gun and some thermal paste. sounds hard, but it's very easy once you start!

Hope this helps in some way. You really should look over the videos and have a go, if the xbox is no longer under and cover and its broken anyway, you might aswell try.

Also though I should say that if your xbox360 is less then 3 years old, then it is still covered for 3 red light errors and 1red light E74 errors by Microsoft. this is because the problem is so common that they had to extend the length of cover on them two error types.

3 red rings on power button. General Hardware failure. xbox360

On July 5, 2007, the Vice-President of Microsoft's Interactive Entertainment Business division published an open letter recognizing the console's problems, as well as announcing a three-year warranty extension for every Xbox 360 console that experiences the "general hardware failure" indicated by three flashing red LEDs on the console.[16] During GDC 08, Microsoft announced that the "Failure rate has officially dropped".

Go complain they should fix it under warranty its a know issue - look up "XBox360 Red Ring of Death" on the internet or on the Microsoft Site.

and if you do try to fix it yourself, or you've voided the warranty ( by already opening it) make sure you DON"T do the " towel Fix " it will only make things worse. you need to do an X Clamp repair. It's simple. I had no experiance whatsoever.with electronics. and I was able to figure it out the first time I tried it. I did it three weeks ago and my X box is quieter than ever and it works fine. so serach on you tube " X Box 360 X clamp fix " and you should see what you need to fix your problem.
