Unfortunately there is nothing that you can directly do to fix this problem without voiding your warranty,. This means that if you attempt to repair it and fail MS will not fix it for you.. The "Fix" posted by others SOMETIMES works, but NOT ALWAYS.

Pleae be careful with your expesive gear!

You have a hardware failure. Microsoft will repair your unit for you under warranty / recall.

SOURCE: xbox 360 red ring

first of all, 3 red lights USUALLY means that you have an internal hardware error. microsoft has a garuntee that if your xbox DOES get the 3 red rings, you can send it in to them and get you xbox fixed or a totally brand new one for FREE. but before you do that, you should check ALL of the cords to make sure that they are plugged in right. there is a reported 33% of the Xbox 360 that were produced have a serious problem- once the motherboard reaches a certain temperature is bends, causing some solder balls to lose contact with the GPU and motherboard.
If there is anything that you want to be sure of before you take apart your XBOX 360 is assurance that what ever your going to do to it, is going to work!
just go to this website:

my friend used this site and got his xbox fixed in no time and he learned some suff too.

SOURCE: how to fix the 3 red rings of death on the xbox 360

I tried to follow some video tutorials from youtube but none of them worked. So I realised I'd have to spend some money on real tutorials and tools. I was a little sceptical but I bought it any way and it worked just fine.
Eventually you'll have to spend some money on it. I recommend you get your hands on this set, you'll get your guides and tolls and it's all you need to fix it at home.

Red Ring of Death: Red Flashing XBOX 360 Lights Explained Common Xbox 360 Red Ring Errors The XBOX has a reported 54.2% failure rate which makes the XBOX 360 gaming consoles' worst "lemon" to date. If you find yourself with the red flashing lights error, --> lg.php?category_id=15&content_type=article&content_type_id=2663399&key_page=682482001924178892&site_id=1&bannerid=11791&campaignid=3153&zoneid=23&loc=1&referer=http%3a%2f%2fwww.associatedcontent.com%2farticle%2f2663399%2fred_ring_of_death_red_flashing_xbox.html%3fcontent_type%3darticle%26content_type_id%3d2663399&cb=8da55f49a0 follow this guide to try and pinpoint the problem with your XBOX 360.

1 Red Ring = Serious Hardware Failure
I f your XBOX 360 has a 1 red flashing light error, you're more than likely in big trouble. The 1 flashing red ring of light can be due to GPU or CPU failure, RAM overheating, a DVD drive error, or some serious problem with your Xbox 360's internal components. The most common 1 flashing red ring lights error is the E74 error. The E74 error is no easy fix for the Xbox 360 and usually has to be repaired by the manufacturer [though some have managed to repair it with the heat gun trick - but be careful]

2 Red Rings = Overheating
Mostly all red flashing lights on the Xbox 360 rings are due to overheating in some way or other, but the 2 red rings singles out overheating as the main issue. When doing the X-Clamp fix the 2 red rings are required to fix the Xbox 360 by overheating the CPU. If you get this Xbox 360 error without doing the X-Clamp fix, you probably just need to let your Xbox 360 cool down for a few hours. Make sure that all vents aren't blocked off and that your Xbox fans are working properly in order to repair this problem.

3 Red Rings = Basic Hardware Failure
The most common error on the Xbox 360 is the 3 red rings - also known as the Red Rings of Death (RRoD). This flashing lights problem is the main cause of Xbox 360's 54.2% failure rate. The 3 red flashing lights can be due to lots of different errors but is mainly due to the X-Clamps in your Xbox 360 and overheating. Fortunately, lots of people were able to fix this issue using the X-Clamp and heat gun fix. Follow this list of error codes to find out the real issue with the 3 red rings because there are quite a few of them.

Trying to turn xbox on and getting blinking red ring around power button


This problem is often called the Red ring of Death.

It's actually very common and is caused by a hardware malfunction that causes the system to overheat.

There are 2 ways to fix this problem: 1) Send it to Microsoft (if your warranty is expired it will cost $110)

2) Fix it at home by taking the system apart and repairing the malfunction. This can be daunting, but is actually easier than it sounds. I recommend having a look at these 2 sites:

MY Power Supply light is blinking orange and xbox 360 want turn on


I hate it when people put "Red ring of Death" for a ORANGE flashing light on the power bar and actually a red ring on the front of the Xbox (which then would mean the red ring of death)!

I just fixed this problem for a friend. They had a contoller charging lead plugged in to the front which had a bad connection in it. Thats all it was so I just unplugged the charging lead and it worked.

So Unplug everything except the power and see if it works 1st, if it does then plug things back in one by one and see when it starts to flash and thats your problem lead there.

3 red light blinking


When the three red lights are blinking, that means that there is a hardware failure. If your console is under warranty, than you can call 18004MYXBOX, and they will fix it for you for free( including shipping). By the way all of the consoles are under a 2 year warranty for this problem so it will be free.
