How many red lights do you see around the ring of light? there are actually four quadrants around the power button representing the four controller positions and when it flashes red there are different issues allocated for different number of quadrants that are lighting up red.
[b]one red light (E67,68,69)[/b] - there might be a problem with the hard drive. turn off the console, remove the hard drive and turn on the console without the hard drive. if the 360 works without the HDD attached there is a problem with the hard drive
[b]one red light (E71, 74, 79)[/b] - console is experiencing a hardware failure. disconnect all cables or wires from the console and also remove the hard drive. re-attach the cables or wires and torn on the console without any HDD or memory unit and if the same issue occurs your console is having a hardware failure and you need to send the console for repair.
[b]two red lights (no error message)[/b] - the console is overheating. try to cool down the console for a few hours. if the console is still experiencing the issue check the fan at the back if it blows out air. if the fan is not working or if the console is still experiencing the issue after cooling down the console you need to send it to the service center of microsoft for repair
[b]three red lights (no error message)[/b] - two reasons for the red lights: hardware failure or power supply unit failure. when the three red lights is showing check the light on the power supply unit. if the light is green you console is experiencing a hardware failure. if the light is orange, red or no light at all, there might be a problem with the power supply unit. disconnect and reconnect the power cables from the 360 and reconnect them again. if there is an inter-cooler connected at the back of the console, remove the inter-cooler and turn on the console without the inter-cooler. try also a different wall socket and if the light on the power supply is still orange, red, or no light when you turn on the console you need to replace the power supply unit.
[b]four red lights (no error message)[/b] - it just means that the console does not detect the AV cable or the AV cable is not connected to the console. try to wipe the metal area around the AV connector and reconnect it again.

This happened to me 2 or 3 times.I checked the power supply and found that it was loose(the one in the back of the actual 360 console)when I pushed it in properly,is worked fine,i have not got this problem at all since then.So just make sure the power supply is properly connected.
