SOURCE: what does 2 flashing lights mean on an xbox 360?

The two red flashing lights on the left side of the circle indicate the thermal limit has been reached. (over-heating) Check to see if the fan on the back of the unit is blowing air. There are external fans that can be added to keep the GPU. (Graphics Processing Unit) and CPU (Central Processing Unit) temp down. Keeping the temp down can prevent the dreaded RRD. (Red Ring of Death) Here is link as an example of a cooling fan. http://www.gamerepairparts.com/xbox-360-cooling-.html
Shop around and find one that you like. Remember, when it comes to these computer chips, cooler is safer.

2 red lights is the overheating error, you will need to try and dust out the console, or what you can do is send it in to get it fixed or use a good guide to fix it

My xbox360 has one red light flashing


1 red light usualy means hardware failure. There is another error code you can get of of xbox. While machine is on push the the sync button on console and while sync is pushed in press eject button. The lights on the console will give you youre first digit. Theres 4 in total. Repeat pressing the sync and eject button till you have got the four digits and console is back to the red light.
When getting codes the lights will light up. 1 red light means 1 2 means 2 and so on. 4 red lights means 0. Let us know and ill get back to you.

3 flashing red light


3 red lights on the Xbox 360 is the most common error and it means "General Hardware failure. To fix this you need to stop the amount of heat that the GPU and the CPU is taking.

To do this you can use the recommended guide that has been on the market for 3 years or you can send it in.

Once you stop the heat build up this will get rid of your problems.

I get red rings when i turn on my xbox 360


3 Blinking red lights often means that your Xbox 360 has suffered from hardware failure.

4 Blinking red lights means that your Audio / Video cable is not correctly connected (it's the colorful one; Red, white, yellow; green, blue, red if Component)

If it IS just three lights, and you bought your xbox 360 under three years ago, call 1-800-4MY-XBOX
