If it has 3 red lights,or 1 red light with the error code of E74 you have a general hardware failure, if the console is under 3 years old and has not been tampered with in any way:ie it has not been opened,it is covered by microsofts 3 year warranty, visit microsoft will fix it free of charge.
If above does not apply and you want to have a go at fixing it yourself there are some very good guides on how to on this site or youtube.
If the error code is anything else comment back we may be able to help you.
remember thumbs up if this helps.

If you did something to your x-box like a mod that microsoft doesn't allow or was detected when you connected to their on-line site it will render your x-box unusable until you take it to someone who can change your x-box back to the factory set up.

When to claim the death claim?

As soon as possible.

If it is the death of a website, your followers should be told so as soon as the decision is taken. But maybe keep the site as an archive or offer a zipped downloadable version of the site for the visitors.

If it is the death of the website owner, write an honorable post about it, on the website's main page / news page.

If I got this totally wrong, please clarify.

Our sons xbox 360 will not turn on and the light on hard drive is red. We unplugged it over night and plugged it back in and it still will not turn on and light stays red.

This seems to be a common problem and i have heard it referred to as the "Red light of Death". Here is a link that will shed some light & save me typing for an hour 8) TeamXbox

Can i exchange my ex box not working because red light of death

If you take it into a GAME EXCHANGE near you they will fix it. Although they might charge a small fee, I would call first. You can also call the number on the xbox360 web site. It will walk you through a set up.
