1 red light is normally the E74 error it happens because the scaler chip which deals with the display at the back of the Xbox 360 starts overheating.

If you can stop the heat build up getting to the chips then you should be fine you can do this yourself or send it in to have it done.

This is a common fault with the 360, it says that its a "general hardware failure" which could mean anything
really. In truth its the lead free solder that cracks with so much heat and as a result the Xbox 360 fails
causing the 3rrod (3 red rings of death) or e74 or even no sound but graphics or sound and no graphics just like you are reporting.


you need to look up the 3rrod repair fix and either attempt yourself or get someone to do this for you. If you want me to provide a free guide just email me and ill gladly help all i can.

Xbox fixed itself from 3 lights but other problem


When someone say that his/her Xbox is having 3 red lights problem, It means it needs to be repaired. If you are using Cooler than it is not a cure but a prevention. You could have used cooler before acutally having the problem just to prevent your Xbox. But now you will have to either get it repaired from Microsoft (in case your Xbox's warranty is not expired, but one thing to note is that you will have to wait for at least 3-4 weeks to get back your Xbox) or you can Fix your Xbox's 3 Flashing red lights problem yourself with the help of DIY Video guide available on Internet. You can fix yourself without any technical knowledge.
