Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
My xbox has three red lights and dont no how to fix it.
Three red lights (no error message) - 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. you need to send the console to MS service center or if you have no MS support in your country look for someone who knows how to repair the console or go to xbox-scene.com and look for information on how to repair the console yourself.
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.

the 3 red rings are the worst and there is no way to fix it, i tried wrapping a towel around it and leaving it for an hour or so and that worked for me... the is a good old xbox remidee, but if that dosnt work then call the hot line and you will have to send it off.. the usually have it back in about a week

E73: I/O Hardware Error - Couldn't calibrate HSIO Bus from edram: this error is likely caused by a problem with the Ethernet port or supporting control devices.
You can try to find some parts online, but it looks like your Ethernet port is bad...

My sons Xbox had the 3 red lights! It depends what colour of light is showing on your power pack the colour indicates what the problem is! The light will either be red,amber or green, my sons light was amber and that was due to a faulty power pack, Microsoft were very obliging and replaced the power pack free of charge,it arrived in 3 working days! Here is a link that will take you through the different lights and how to fix the problem!
Hope this helps, good luck!
