Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Okay I am so frusturated with the thing is going to be a boat anchor....
I have taken it all apart..removed the xclamps and used screws and washes as indicated. I didnt put all the plastic covers on it instead just tested it without the bottom and top covers.
I plugged it in and the fans ran for a few seconds and then stopped..now the power lights indicate 2 red lights and the cord from the wall to the xbox is orange. It was three at one point and now is three red lights and cannot stop the fans because tey stop themselves..
Someone PLEASE help..i have tried backing up screws so not too tight and still same problem...PLEASE give me some ideas..cleaned all the goop off the cpu and gpu made mirror shine and put new arctc silver paste on and NOTHING>..
I also had this problem, You should tigten the screws a bit further. If you will get 2 lamps, it still isn't tight enough.

There is a possibility that your heatsink is touching a component
and causing a dead short . , remove all the screws and just
place the heatsink on top of the chip ,making sure that they
are flush down and level . no screws . Power on and if your
fan start and stays on , your in luck , now put the screw in
finger tight and see if your console fan speed stabilizes.
all advise accordingly if you get to this stage.

Ok heres the scoop, i had a xbox halo3, paid lots for it, then went on xbox web site and checked on if i had registered it , i guess that i did not , well long story, i found that it had a warrenty, sent it in to xbox, sent it back in 2 weeks with a limted warrenty, but it was for the rings of death, your problem may have been caused by over tighting of the screws that you installed, i have now repaired 9 units, and all start with rod, i make sure that they are not under warrenty, then i take them apart, do the fix, and so far all are still working,try it again but let the unit heat up, then apply the paste, then put the heatsinks back on loosly, i have had to redo this only once other time.

This can be caused by the unit overheating. Once this happens it shorts out the unit causing solder on the board to melt and bridge(connect). Once this happens it shorts out the board causing the error you have now. Contact Microsoft and see if the unit is still under warranty.
