I have performed a "fix" I sent for on-line that had me attach pieces of eraser to memory chips. no good. It was suggested to wrap the unit in towels to heat the unit, then let it cool down. no good. What exactly are the 3 red lights indicating? If this is a temp problem, will something reset if I cool the unit down?The unit has set for hours off and I think would be "cool" after that period but the lights are there immediatly upon power up?

there the towel trick and you can also get it professionally done by a it shop you need to get the gpu or memory/ ram chips reflowed! the towel trick is where you over heat the xbox using towels. your turn the xbox on and then wrap the xbox in towels intill it shuts off from over heating the the red ring of death is gone! but its a short lived fix!
You may have tightened the screws to much. I had this happen to a RROD repair I performed. Worse case sinario is the gpu got fried. Did you clean the chips good and replace the thermal paste? A little trick I found is to take small pieces of a bank card/discount card and super glue them to the four corners of the chips. both cpu and gpu. when you remove the xclamps clean the chips until the have a mirror like finish. I used rubbing alcohol. Clean the heat syncs as well. Glue the plastic pieces to the corners of the chips. replace the syncs but dont tighten them all the way. While the console is disassembled plug in the av cable (to prevent all four red lights from coming on) plug in the power cord. Make sure the cooling fan is disconnected. Turn on the console. at this point you may still see the 3 red lights. This is o.k. Leave the console on for a while until the 3 red lights turn into 2 red lights. This means the console is overheating. Let it "cook" for 2 min. then tighten the screws. The overheat is needed to make the solder on the chips become plyable and alow the chips to be reset. you may still have a loose connection on the gpu causing the checkers.
yeh thats the red ring of death temp solution is turn on wrap in towels so it nice n steamy then after 30 mins put in fridge til chilled or leave to cool it will reset the system only temp prob will come back and will have to be sent off to microsoft hope temp solution keeps ya goin till its sent off
This problem was a MASSIVE defect in the Xbox 360. Your graphic chip has been burned to an extent that renders it useless. "The Red Ring of Death" can only be fixed by calling Microsoft, and having your Xbox sent in. But not to worry, because of the RR of D, Microsoft issued a 3 YEAR warrenty to all Xboxs with that problem, so your covered!

The problem with Xboxes are (the First Versions) is that they get too hot and the Solder under the chips rise causes the chips to be affected. As of right now, there is "no fix" for these. Alot of these xboxes are being sent right back to Microsoft to replace.
You might have to go through that back and forth process to receive a new one. but, even those are said to be refurbs.... of the first versions
open up your console, wrap your 360s cpu and gpu in tin foil and blast with hairdryer.or stick pieces of eraser to the gpu memory units.or remove all accessories and hard drive, completely wrap your 360 in double layer of thick dry towels and power it on for 15 minutes. afterward let it cool down for half an hour.
