It is a poblem you can fix yourself( well maybe not yourself depending on technical expertise but can be repaired if out of warranty) Get a ROD (ring of death) repair kit and an online guide to how to repair the issue. Please read all instructions carefully and get a technician to do it if you are unsure as you dont want to damage it further. Good Luck.

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& 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.

After several minutes of having my xbox 360 turned on the screen goes fuzzy and the system shuts down

Another sign of RROD coming..... First get or have someone service your console. Replace the xclamp's with M5 bolts and recoat the cpu and gpu with AS5.Clean REALLY well first! Heat will cause corruption in GPU's It is a sign your console is not transfering heat to the hatsinks efficiently. You will be good as new once you do those easy steps.Hope this helps. P.S Do it before it red rings on you!

I need help with my 360. I'm 11 years old i have the 3 rings of d

The best advice I can give is having it sent in to microsoft. While you might be without your xbox for a few weeks, your xbox may still be under warranty and be fixed for free. Its not the quickest method of repair, but its the most certain and reliable. I've repaired xbox 360's myself and its not worth the hassle nor is it always a sure thing, for some red ring errors it can require soldering, which can be very difficult for the  average person.

Black screen with white bots on screen.(Xbox 360)

It's probably just the red ring, you can fix that with almost ALL 3 red ring fixes.

Cause there both CAUSED by the motherboard shifting.

Google PENNY TRICK, it doenst always work UNTIL the box is completely screwed back in.

Xclamp trick. Google taht too, it costs money for the kit, but it works like everytime and there are TONS of tutorials online for it.
