    there is a major problem with the xbox with the RROD for the
    most part its how you sit your console. do you sit the system standing up or
    flat on all four rubber grommets? the heat sink sits kind of odd on the console
    if you have your console sitting up on the side then this can cause problems it
    will overheat and cause the thermal grease to lighten and loosen which causes
    space from the gpu/cpu to the heat sink which will cause this "RROD"
    which is overheat. you see if the console is overheating then that means the
    processors are not dissipating heat fast enough and in this case the heat sink
    has been pulled away from either cpu or gpu and you will need to correct that
    by opening it up and removing the thermal grease thoroughly and apply some well
    known thermal grease such as zalman or arctic silver compound and lightly but
    firmly retighten the heat sinks screws to the cpu/gpu. power the console on and
    it should work with out overheating. now this doesn’t always work if you repeatedly
    powered it on with this "RROD" which long periods of time will fry
    the chips and in that case your console is SOL

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.

My xbox 360 has 3 red lights and when i turn it on my fans wont work just the 3 red lights keep flashing


This is called the red ring of death and is cause when the Xbox has lack of ventilation and the solder on the gpu melts together, the 2 options you have are to send it in to Microsoft or find someone who doesn't mind voiding warranties and knows the heat gun trick.

Red light flashes sometimes and not reading disks


Hi carla 0166,
Its not good news im afraid, that red light that flashes on the console is also known as the "ring of death".if one segment is red its not too bad but if its any more it wont work.
To get around this as daft as it sounds you need to overheat the xbox 360.
i know this as it has happened to me also.
simply switch the x box 360 on and then wrap a towel around it and leave for 30mins.
this will overheat the console and when switched back the red light should be gone.

I hope this has helped :)
