Console will not work. keep getting the 3 red rings.
It could be a number of hardware related issues. Microsoft is well aware of this problem and is not going to recall them either. Read this:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xbox_360_technical_problems

Hey cpawlina, and Guest,
I understand exactly how you guys feel, believe me.
The only fix I have ever seen for this, (which usually co-incides with an act of god), is to remove the hard drive, and turn on the system without it. Sometimes this will make the 360 work.
The reason why this sometimes will solve the issue, is because the read/write times between the dvd-rom and hard drive become way too laggish, it will cause this red-ring to occur.
But if that doesn't help, then there is no easy fix to it. It has to be sent to microsoft, and get it fixed. I apologize for no other advise. I hope this works, and if not, I hope the guys at microsoft can be of better service then they're known for.

This means that there is a problem on the hardware on the unit already now there is a temporary fix to this although it would be best if you have this unit serviced already. The link to the temporary fix is a video on you tube.
XBOX link to the XBOX knowledgebase where you can contact for repairs to the unit.

This is the red ring of death and is usually caused when the unit overheats causing the solder to melt and bridge. Contact Microsoft to see if it is still under warranty.
