Either call Microsoft and see what they say or you can attempt to repair the console yourself. The 3RL indicates a 'general hardware failure' You can try the X-Clamp fix or visit my website and look at my solution...

Call Microsoft via the 1-800 number and tell them about your problem

I have three red lights and dont know what to do. happened about two hours ago when power was out for a few seconds please help.

turn it on again. this happened to me the other night when i lost power. if you still have 3 red lights, hold the sync button and press the eject button 4 times. a certain number of lights will come on with each press. this is your error code. 4 lights=0, 1=1,2=2,3=3. Google the code and see if there is a fix. call microsoft if its still under warranty.

Xbox 360 e74 error

Having the e-74 code is when the video chip on the 360 over heats and becomes un soldered your best bet is to turn the 360 on with a towel over it and wait for 3 red lights the call microsoft and tell them the 3 lights issue dont mention the 1 light or it will cost you dearly around 150$

3 red lights

red light of death. Try turrning it off let it sits for a while then turn it back on if it still does that then the xbox is dead. unfortunatley this is a common problem with xbox 360 MS has extended the warranty on these and there's plenty of articles out there on these xbox.

call them and get them to fix it or replace the machine for you.

sorry i don't think anyone can help you.

good luck

Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

"a period of one year (three years for conditions that cause three lights on the ring of light on the front of the Console to flash red) starting as of the date of your sales receipt for the purchase of the Console, or (ii) as applied to an Accessory, a period of 90 days starting as of the date of your sales receipt for the purchase of the Accessory"

So 1 year from the day you buy it of any damage to it.

Then 3 year warranty of the "3 red lights" (red ring of death) couple weeks ago (including me) experienced the 3 red lights, so Microsoft extended everyone's warranty for another 3 years only on the 3 red light issue.

I've only had to send in my 360 1 time and that was of the red lights, other then that no problems.

I hope this helped, also you can connect that Xbox at 1800-4my-xbox for any questions.

Thanks & Good luck!

3 flashing red light on console

uh well u got the three red lights of death it sounds like... and i also had those. while im no expert on this stuff, iv seen that u can put ur 360 sideways on a table, wrap it in towels(and i mean like 2 towels, wrap it up completely) and turn it on and leave it on for about 10-15 mins. just make sure a fire doesnt start in those 10-15 mins(believe me you dont want to call the fire company and tell them u started a fire wrapping ur game console in towels), ok then after u done waitin turn it off, unwrap it, and let it sit until it is cool, and try turning it on. it might work, its supposed to work because those three red lights mean that theres a malfunction in the 360 itself, such as wires or sumthin, and extreme heat may melt the wires and fix the problem, how i dont know but theres so many stories of ppl who have pulled it off
