If the lights are red, this means that your 360 has had a hardware failure. This failure is also known as the "Red Ring of Death." If you have bought your XBOX 360 with in 3 years of posting this, your will still have free 3 years of warranty from Microsoft. Call them at 1-800-4my-xbox. (1-800-469-9269)

My xbox no show no picture

3 Red Lights Flashing - is a general hardware failure
  • Unplug everything and let it sit for 20 min. Re-connect and try re-starting
  • If these steps do not resolve the behavior, turn the console off, remove the hard drive, and then turn on the console. If the 3x Red LED error light is no longer displayed, turn the console off, re-attach the hard drive, and then turn on the console.
  • Check the lights on the power supply. When you turn on the console, the power supply light should illuminate green even if the three lights on the console flash red.

3 red lights

Is the warranty sticker still intact? If so you are going to want to contact Microsoft as it is under warranty(They extended it) and will be repaired at no cost.
