If you have a cooling core on it then you can't do too much more but if you don't then go buy one and put it on it that will normally fix it.

Red flashing lights shown on the console when i put it on,

Three or two? or four? depending on the number the diagnosis varies.2 lights - cpu has overheated (needs new thermal paste on heatsink)3 light - "Red Rings of Death or RROD) gpu (graphics processing unit) has come off the mainrboard, this happens because the console heats up and the solder becomes fluid, moves, ands sets in  the wrong spot. This can be fixed by reflowing the solder and we usually reapply fresh thermal paste. Some people also have a new clamp system they put on the mainboard.4 lights - means the av cable is not plugged in correctly.Youll need a few things to fix it, this is an awesome site

I have an x-box that is just under one year old. When it was switched on this week it failed to respond; when it powers up it just displays three red lights. Please advise.

"RROD" Reflow the motherboard,or send it in. RROD = bad connection under CPU or GPU in most cases.Causes; Overheat.It dries the thermal paste out and fails to transfer heat which in turn slowly fries the cold solder joints. I fix these consoles all day long,easy fix.

Xbox goes from 3 light rrod to 2 light rrod

2 lights: overheating but in your case most likely bad contact between either the CPU or GPU with the heatsink. Check all your washers and make sure they are even. If missing one it will create an unevent surface. If all looks good try put more thermal compound.

3 red lights: still not working after replacing the xclamps.
solution: try the heat gun fix and you will have much better luck.
I have already posted on a different site you can check it out.

Two red lights on xbox 360

Well the two red lights means that your xbox is overheating, and with all that other stuff happening you should probably keep it near a fan if possible, or you could even by some new heat sinks at your local hardware store and put them near the source of heat.
