Bad News Microsoft Does not cover one red light even if it is the
G.P.U. causing it . But call anyway i have revived different
response from different agents .

If you don't want to hassle with Microsoft then you have
the following options

1 Have a shop re-flow the G.P.U. and just as important
securely clamp the Chip down , without distorting the P.C.
board . also if they replace the X clamp with screw only, try
another shop . The consoles need a replacement bracket not
just screws.Average cost 60.00-80.00 . This repair last on
average 3-12 months

If you are desperate you can always do what's called a X clamp
mod but this fix will not last as long 1-3 month .

if you have any questions feel free to ask

This is a warning sign that you could get the 3 red lights of death on your console, the first thing you need to do is contact xbox on 0800 469 9269 and tell them you have 3 red lights on your console and they will book your console in for a free repair even if your console warranty has expired or not, 9 times out of 10 xbox will send you out a brand new console as it is easier than fixing it, if you enjoy playing on xbox live then when you receive your console new or old xbox will send you a free 1 month xbox live subscription code for the time you have spent with out your console.
i hope this helps you

Will not power up at all

What colour is the light on the power brick, red means it has overheated, turn it off, let it cool and make sure it has plenty of ventilation, if its still red you need to use another.
If the power brick light on the power brick is orange, have a look into the usb ports to the right hand side of the console, make sure that non of the contacts are touching, just bend them back.
If non of these work it could be a resistor inside the box.
Remember thumbs up if this helps.

2 flashing red lights

That red light setup means that the system is overheating. You should be able to leave it off and just go again, but if it keeps doing it consistently like you say, I have to ask: is the console or the power supply box on a carpet? I recommend leaving them on a hard surface to prevent insulating any heat. These parts are prone to overheat. If that doesn't help, I dunno. Ask Microsoft. Probably an internal issue with heat sinks or heat compound, I'd recon.

1 redlight flashes clearly red at bottom right hand side of the power ring,and 2 other dim red lights are flashing,only the 1 in the bottom right is bright happened 2weeks ago but i tryed it...

Do you get an error message on your tv screen? 1 flashing red light means there is a hardware failure such as your DVD drive hard drive, dashboard error ect. Not much can be done about this issue besides having microsoft fix it.

If It Glows Red Constantly, You have a possible Overheat Problem. if it flashes green/red it,s Fragging.
the clicking needs to be identified more clearly, is it clicking at the left hand-side or the right hand side of the console.
DVD Drive Left Hard Drive Right.
