Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Ejecting discs with 3 red lights on, only when horizontal
Not good news unfortunately. That red light that comes on is also known as "the ring of death".
there is only one way i know of correcting this situation.
as weird as it sounds
you need to overheat the xbox 360 in order to get it working correctly again. i know this as i have one myself and been in the same situation.
you need to switch the console on then wrap a towel around it and leave it for approx 30mins.
this should return it to its correct working order.
Hope this has helped :)

Your xbox 360 has overheated. It is called the red rings of death. It can be fixed from a shop and has been internally damaged inside. If you have warranty it can be fixed for free, otherwise it can be taken to a shop and fixed in the UK for around £35-£50 GBP. Hope this helps.

Does the lights blink red? If so, You
have the infamous YLOD, aka. Yellow Light of Death. This is the
number 1 cause of pS3's dying. It is an overheating issue linked to
your CPU and GPU (the processor chips) You will need to find a local
PS3 repair shop who can repair this. Do not try to attempt repairs
seen on the internet yourself as some would suggest.You could make
things much worse and render the unit totally unresponsive. The
repair process takes about 3 hours.
IT CAN BE FIXED*
IS THERE A DISC STUCK INSIDE?
If you have a unit that is not
backwards compatible, any non 60g or 80g then you can retrieve your
Power off the unit using the toggle
switch on the back. Hold down the 'eject' button and turn the toggle
switch back from off to on. This will run a fan test and eject your
disc. Remember, this will only work on the 20, 40g models. Not the
backwards compatible units with the 4 usb port holes and the memory
You will have to have the system repaired so that you can eject the disc the normal way. If the technician cannot repair your system, simply ask him to remove your disc.
