Re: 360 issues

Two Red Lights

The two left quadrants of the Ring of Light flash red on the front of the Xbox 360 console
This behavior occurs when the internal temperature of the console exceeds the acceptable limits. You may think of this as too hot, overheating, and so on. Make sure the fans are operating and the system has adequate ventilation.

Since you've been inside it's possible that a heatsink or some other part of the cooling system is not working properly or is loose. Check all these!

Good Luck!
