My xbox has 3 flashing red lights on front. What does this mean

It means your system has the dreaded RROD Or Red Ring Of Death,

If you turn the system on and hold the sync button and then hit the eject button, You can find its code you will have to do it 4 times, 1 light means 1 2 lights means 2 3 Means 3 and 4 lights means 0.

You can usually get a code like 0020 0102 and so on, below is a link that will tell you what each error code means,

also look at the back of your system locate the manufacture date, If it's within 3 years of that date don't open the system call microsoft and have them fix it for free.

Can anyone tell me what the playstation red ring of death is?

It is called 'traffic light' because when you turn it on, within a few seconds the lights on the front go from green, then flashing amber, and finally to the dreaded red = knackered PS3

3 flashing red

You have the dreaded Red Ring of Death. IF you contact Microsoft at, they have extended their warranty regarding this issue to 3 years. They will send you a return shipper and cover postage both ways if you ask them to as well. This will be repaired at no cost to you.

Unfortunately this is a very touchy situation. There is one home method for curing this problem.

1). Wrap your Xbox 360 Console COMPLETELY with a towel, so you can only see the power button, and the three flashing red lights.

2). Power on your console.

3). Leave for 30-45 minutes.

4). Power off the console.

5). Unwrap the towel from the console.

6). Power on.

**Problem Solved** If not continue reading.

After that you are unfortunately forced to call the dreaded Microsoft Customer Support Line


And ask to create a repair order, they will send you a Purolator (or FedEx) shipping box. You have to send your console to them, they will repair it and have it to you within (2-3 business weeks).
