Two red lights mean that the system is overheating and therefor shuts down so as to keep it from damage. If it has x clamp mod then the heat sinks are not firmly flat on chips causing a gap and thus overheating. If no mod and in a smoking environment there could be dust inside and a can of air sprayed into the system to clean it out may be needed. If it is under warranty still, do not open it up and call MS. If it isn't look up you tube on how to open and clean system.Prolonged playing with it overheating will lead mechanical failure...the Red Ring of Death.

I had a similar problem, mine was an early warning sign to a red ring of death. I don't think Microsoft's warranty covers this problem so when you call just say I have 3 red rings on my console. I know lying is bad but it will probably fix your console.

Immune to 3 red lights


to get it to over heat you just turn it off and then stick a tooth pick in the back to stop the fan and tape it in place but once it cools down you wont have 3 reds anymore unless you keep the toothpick in for like a week

Two left red lights


The two red lights is usually over heating. Make sure it has good ventilation and that the fan is working in the back. Let it cool down for a couple hours and try it again

My 360 has 2 red lights i can play for 5mins then the fan turns off


I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. USUALLY THE RED LIGHT IS WHAT IS CALLED THE KISS OF DEATH.

IF YOU HAVE WARRANTY ON THIS XBOX YOU MAY HAVE TO USE IT TO GET A NEW ONE.

IF YOU DON T HAVE A WARRANTY. THERES A 800 NUMBER SUPPORT THAT LOCATED ON THE BACK OF THE XBOX OR YOU MAY GOOGLE FOR THE NUMBER.

CALL THE NUMBER THEY WILL TRY TO TROUBLESHOOT THE PROBLEM. ONCE VERIFIED THAT THE MACHINE IS BAD THEY WILL REPLACE IT BY A NEW ONE.
