The X-Clamps at the bottom have come loose. You need to open it and do the xclamp mod.

I got a red light on my power cord, what do I?super

A red light on a power cord for the Xbox 360 usually means it has overheated. Try unplugging the power supply and leaving it alone for awhile to cool down. Make sure to not cover the power supply when you do reconnect it to keep it well ventilated. If this doesn't work you may have to replace the faulty device.

2 red lights on xbox 360

2 red lights means your Xbox 360 is overheating. Let it set for 30 minutes to an hour, allowing it to completely cool off. If you still have the error when you turn it on the issue may be directly related to the processor-heatsink connections. If your Xbox 360 is still under warranty you can send it back to Microsoft for repairs or void your warranty by opening the case and addressing the issue yourself. Follow this guide: for an excellent comprehensive cooling mod for your system. Good luck!

My son plays his xbox 360 for 20 minutes and it cuts off and 2 red lights flash

Those would be the "red lights of death". They mean that there's either a software problem or a hardware problem, depending on the number of lights and their sequence. What I would do is google it. Find a site that will tell you what's wrong with it. If not, then you can always send it back to Microsoft and they'll fix it for a fee...

Two red lights come on after playing and the screen goes blue what do the two red lights mean?

Two red lights on your xbox mean that the xbox is overheating. Turn off the xbox and let it cool down for about an hour, maybe 2. While it is cooling down make sure that the back of the xbox is clear and has enough space for ventilation and make sure that it is clean so that air can flow properly through the system to cool it down while you're playing.

My xbox 360 it has the 2 red lights flashing

The two red lights means it's overheated. One let it cool down, don't turn it on until it had good while to cool. Two give your 360 more ventilation room. If that's not enough buy intercooler for it. Remember just give it some room to breath. Get more cool air flowing through it and it should be fine.

As playing Xbox 360 system shuts off two red lights occurs.

Two red lights mean your 360 is over exceeding the inside temperature. Your fan must not be working at all and your 360 is overheating tremendously. That is what I know about the 2 red lights. Im not sure what to tell you to fix this but to just call 18004myxbox.
