Three flashin red lights

This XBOX problem is more commonly known as the RROD (red ring of death).
The problem is caused by the GPU (graphics processing unit) overheating and the culprit is a bad design flaw with the X-clamp. The x-clamp is what holds the heat sink nice and tight on the GPU so heat can be dispersed properly, it has to be modified.

Check this youtube video out if you think you are up to doing the job yourself >>>>>>>>

If not then you will have to spend quite a bit of money to have the problem repaired for you.

Good luck.

X box 360 3 red lhits no picer or sound

This means that there is a problem on the hardware on the unit already now there is a temporary fix to this although it would be best if you have this unit serviced already. The link to the temporary fix is a video on you tube. This has worked for a couple of friends as well as some poeple I have suggested this to on Fixya.

XBOX link to the XBOX knowledgebase where you can contact for repairs to the unit.

Xbox is red response on screen.

I take it you mean four red lights in the ring?

According to a Microsoft article:

This issue may occur for one of the following reasons: • The audio-visual (AV) cable is not connected correctly or plugged into the Xbox 360 console. • The console is not detecting the cable. This issue does not occur if the AV cable is plugged incorrectly into a television, a stereo, or a VCR.

The article goes on to discuss potential fixes, so it's worth checking it out.
