Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
My xbox keeps cutting off while i am playing and start flashing red lights on the left side.

That will be due to one of the following reasons:

Take your xbox 360 and blow it in a thousand peices!! I hate xbox now, we've gotten 3 sytems now.. guess what none of them work.So i agree with the comment earlier they should join with sony before going out of buissness.. this is a waste of money that many people don't have to throw down the drain.

What you have to do is let the console cool down. when 2 lights light up it is overheated.

SOURCE: 2 red lights fans don;t work
It's not your fans that's causing the problem. It's the XBOX itself. The Xboxes generally overheat and this has been a big problem for Microsoft. Alot of companies are actually reflowing these system, reheating the solder under the chips allowing them to connect back down to the points on the board.
You will need your system reflowed. Contact a repair shop.

4 flashing red lights is a video cable problem. Unplug and replug the cable make sure it is snug. If this does not work try a new cable
If that still fails then it is hardware issue and we'd have to suggest some fixes from there. Let us know

SOURCE: 2 red lights start flashing
Two red lights flashing on the Xbox 360 means that the system is encountering overheating issues. What you can do is to let your console cooldown for about half an hour and you are ready to go. Also, if you are connected to a Hi-definition output and running on 1080p, you might want to downscale it to 720p as the console generates less heat in lower resolution. Hope this helps..
