You are getting the rrod because of a 'fault' with the motherboard. the color of the power supply shows if something is 'active' (green) on it or on 'stand by' (yellow). What 'fixing' were you doing?

Next step is to clean GPU (graphic processing unit) and CPU (central processing unit) If you do this step right it will help to stop xbox 360 freezing. This is very important and critical step so just make sure you do it right.

6) Appling Arctic Silver

Now you have to apply arctic silver thermal compound gently over GPU.
You will get this arctic silver thermal compound in any computer hardware shop for $1-$2.

Set it for 15 to 20 minutes then place 2 nylon washers on each screw on the heat sink then place the screws back in motherboard then add two more nylon washers to screws.

Then,

Place the heat sink on the peak of screws then push them down slight, finally screw them up. Try to make it reasonably tight.

Get everything back together and see everything is fitted properly. Now, Turn your Xbox 360 on.

wrap your xbox in a DRY towel and take all the cords out except the power cord, turn it on and let it overheat, this might fix your problem did for me and about 8 of my other buddies.

When i turn on the xbox 360 one light on right side goes on


This is called the ring of death. It happens to alot of x360. The console got to hot. One thing you can do is the towel trick. Wrap the 360 in a towel so it is not exposed at all. Make sure it is turned on. Leave it on for 30 minutes. This sometimes will repair the problem. If this does not work the first time try it again. If this does not work there is another fix, but it is very involved. Let try the towel trick first.

That fan input could be malfunctioned. Look around to fix busted Xbox motherboards and replace the fan input/output. Also, see if your fans are hitting something.
