You have the RROD (Red Ring of Death)

You can find pleanty of places on Ebay that provide a repair for this. Shouldn't cost you more than about $30 plus postage. Its caused by overheating and is/was very common.

If this is a new xbox then its covered by warrenty.

When I turn on my xbox 360 3 red lights come on but nothing else happens is it possible for my brick to be bad and only allowing the lights to come on and nothing else

This issue is the infamous "Red Rings of Death". Unfortunately, you will need to send your Xbox back to Microsoft to get it fixed. You can call Microsoft at 800-4MY-XBOX for a price estimation.

My xbox has 3 red lights and i cant see nothing on the screen it dont read the games..

You're experiencing the red ring of death- before contacting Microsoft, remove the power from your 360 for about 2 minutes. Plug it back in and see if it comes back up. If not, you will need to contact Microsoft to get your console serviced

Immune to 3 red lights

to get it to over heat you just turn it off and then stick a tooth pick in the back to stop the fan and tape it in place but once it cools down you wont have 3 reds anymore unless you keep the toothpick in for like a week

No! Check with 800 support the warranty was extended on most xbox 360 with the 3 red lights. Ours was repaired when we thought our warranty had ended.

3 blinking redlights..just black screen

it,s worth a look at the xbox forums on the internet regarding this.
dependant on how many red lights you have, the console has overheated. or you have a A/V output fault.
Look on the xbox 360 forums sites for further Information.
