Three red lights and no power

Did you let it heat up untill you get the 2 red rings. If not unplug your fan; turn it on and wait untill you get lights 1 and 3 flashing. turn it off and wait a couple of min. then plug your fan in and add the wind tunnel. then turn it back on. If it still doesn't work you did the X-clamp fix wrong.

Xbox goes from 3 light rrod to 2 light rrod

2 lights: overheating but in your case most likely bad contact between either the CPU or GPU with the heatsink. Check all your washers and make sure they are even. If missing one it will create an unevent surface. If all looks good try put more thermal compound.

3 red lights: still not working after replacing the xclamps.
solution: try the heat gun fix and you will have much better luck.
I have already posted on a different site you can check it out.

RED Ring of death xclamp fixed but..

Do you have the fan in? If you do, take it out or put 2 screwdrivers through the back holes to stop the fans from spinning. IF you have the fans out and its still not overheating, just leave it on for a while until it does. It will overheat eventually.
