Unfortunately there is nothing that you can directly do to fix this problem.
You have a hardware failure. Microsoft will repair your unit for you under warranty / recall.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Go online to XBOX.COM and register your Xbox (will need your serial number). Microsoft will then mail you a mailing box with instructions (at their cost). It will be shipped to McAllen TX (mine was and was delivered to them today).
But next unit will not be Microsoft related.

the 3 red rings are the worst and there is no way to fix it, i tried wrapping a towel around it and leaving it for an hour or so and that worked for me... the is a good old xbox remidee, but if that dosnt work then call the hot line and you will have to send it off.. the usually have it back in about a week

wrap it in a a few towels and then turn it on and let it run for about half an hour then turn off and unwrap and wait an hour to cool down and then turn it back or call xbox customer support

Only way would be to open up the xbox 360, get the heatsinks off of the board and use a heatgun and reheat the two chips that are underneath the heatsinks that you take off.
Problem with the 360's is that they use crappy solder to put the video chips on the board and the solder underneath breaks apart after a while cause of the heat that is generated by the machine. Reheating the two video chips allows the solder to reflow properly and then you can turn on the machine and get video again.
