My sons xbox 360 has 3 red lights flashing and it keeps crashing?

If you are getting the 3 red lights I will tell you why it happens and how you can fix it.

The 3 red lights happens because the GPU and the CPU overheat and as this happens the soldering snaps off. you may get a few freeze ups when this happens.

Eventually though you get the 3 red lights and you need to find a way to get it fixed.

You can do this by sending it in and they will repair it for you.

This will take about 4 weeks to get it fixed however.

The other way you can fix it is by repairing it yourself and this means that you can get the job done in under an hour.

There is a list of the best Xbox 360 Repair guides HERE.

I hope this helps and if so please rate it so it can help others.

3 lights of death on ROL

you got red ring of death (RROD) it's the biggest problem on the xbox 360... the normal xbox 360 cooler, wich is in your 360, doesn't work good and your xbox turns of. sometimes if you're gaming, the console will get overheat and scratches your cd! when your 360 starts and shows 3 red flashing lights there seems to be something wrong... i don't really know what happens next because i got it too last year and when i turned of my 360 and started it again it was gone. the only thing you can do is wait for microsoft to repair him or if you don't have your warranty let him repair by someone else for something like € 50,-

3 flashing red lights

Those are called the Red Rings of Death, or 3 Red lights. They're pretty "feared" by most xbox360ers, as they seem to show that your xbox360 is *dead*. Try calling microsoft, because if it's in the warranty, you can trade it for a new one. I know it might be annoying, but it's the most simple solution...

360 is flashing 3 red lights

If you have had your X-Box for under three years and have this problem, there is good news. microsoft have brought an enhanced warranty with the three red lights. i would get in touch with microsoft and have the repair it or send you a new X-Box out.
Good luck!
