I know how to fix consoles; and I have a customer with the same problem. I have done the x-clamp replacement and it worked fine for a couple of days, Now the same problem keeps coming back. Look up how to do the x-clamp replacement online, this will work most of the time. Good luck.

you can fix it yourself but you need to know what your doing altho it is actually quite easy to do, but yes u are correct if your console has 3 red flashing lights the warranty is 3 years but only for that error, so your in luck send it back to Microsoft and they will ship a new one to u, usually takes around a week

You should still be under warranty, follow the above url, and get a repair request in, it should be no charge.

I have 3 flashing red lights on my xbox 360


You got the red three ring of death, contact microsoft and book your xbox 360 console in to be fixed as long as its within 3 years of purchase and the warranty sticker hasnt been removed or damaged. This happens because of the shoddy design work on the 360 around the GPU and prior console cooling , the soldering is not up to scratch so when the xbox heats up and cools down it contracts and expands the motherboard thus overtime loosening the solder on the pins of the GPU.
This is also down to some X clamps they use to mount the chips securly along with the heatsink to the motherboard which are of poor quality.
hope ive helped , ive written an essay :-P hehe

RED lights flashing


This is going to sound like a very strange solution, but it worked for me, twice. My xbox 360 gave me the red ring of death once, and in my despair I asked a few friends about anything they can think of, and one suggested letting it run for 10 minutes while wrapped in a towel, or blanket. By that point I was desperate enough to try it (I had bought a refurbished one, so it wasn't under warranty anymore), and lo and behold, my xbox 360 is as good as new. Basically what you're doing is shocking the system into working via overheating... I know that doesn't make much sense, but, like I said before, it worked twice for me. Hope this helps!

X box 360 red ring of death costless solution


You don't need any money mate. Microsoft recently extended their warranty to 3 years for the three red lights problem. all you have to do is get in touch with microsoft and tell them about the three red lights, and they should either repair your X Box or they will replace it with a new one.
Good luck mate

2 red lights


suddenly while you are playing you get two quadrants of the ROL (Ring of Light) around the power button of you Xbox 360 console flashing red, this is an indicator that your Xbox 360 console is overheating some how.

That will be due to one of the following reasons:
  1. You set your Xbox 360 console near to any heat source or electrical device.
  2. Your xbox 360 console is not set in a well ventilated area.
  3. There is something blocking the fan openings on your Xbox 360 console.
  4. You are using the Xbox 360 external fan, and basically that's a third party accessory so it sometimes harm the Xbox 360 console.
So, try eliminating all these reasons & if you are still experiencing the same behaviour then you have to contact Xbox 360 customer support to exchange your console or even to get it repaired.

and if you do try to fix it yourself, or you've voided the warranty ( by already opening it) make sure you DON"T do the " towel Fix " it will only make things worse. you need to do an X Clamp repair. It's simple. I had no experiance whatsoever.with electronics. and I was able to figure it out the first time I tried it. I did it three weeks ago and my X box is quieter than ever and it works fine. so serach on you tube " X Box 360 X clamp fix " and you should see what you need to fix your problem.
