This is commonly referred to as the "ring of death". it is not fixable. Call 1-800-4-my-xbox and they will replace it for free within 2-3 weeks. The reason for this is that they had so many that they extended all warrenties 3 years on this issue. Sorry no good news besides the warrenty.

I CAN FIX IT! There are links that show you how to repair this issue yourself (but they are not very clear and every thing is very fragile inside the XBOX 360) or you can contact me via reply on here and we can discuss the issue further as I recently repaired my XBOX 360 with the same issues and it works better than when was brand new.

Or you can google xbox 360 RRod issues it is a MS defect

Three red lights flashing


Three red lights flashing means that there is a hardware fault.
Check your power supply light 1. Turn on your Xbox 360 console. 2. Take a look at the light on the power supply.
The power supply light is located on the end of the rectangular box in the middle of your power cord. If your power supply light is green
Solution 1: Check your power supply cables
Unplug and reconnect your power supply. Here’s how:
Disconnect the power cord from the back of your console. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet and from the power supply unit
Reconnect the power cord to the console. Then plug the power cord back into the wall outlet and the power supply unit.
Make sure that all three power supply connections are firmly secured.
Turn on your console.
Before you perform solution 2, I would suggest you to go through following links.

Three red light`s on xbox 360 console how can i fix the problem


How to Fix Xbox 360 3 Red Lights
Appearance of the three blinking red lights on your Xbox 360 game console is a familiar problem and in this article I will try to offer some solutions to rectify this nagging problem.
The 3 blinking red lights point to an internal error and might be ascribed to common breakdown of hardware.
Try out this simple fix if you like:
Step one will involve removal of memory units and hard drive.
At step 2, under the system blade run the INITIAL SETUP.
At step three involves declining the insertion of memory unit or HDD prompt offer with a negative reply when the prompt creates the automatic offer.
Finally you need to sync the controller & pop in a game.
Due to the widespread occurrence of the three red light fault, Microsoft is offering a new 3 year free warranty.

3 red lights on my xbox 360 please help


Hey cozierterry,

While this may be an indicator that something is wrong with your Xbox 360, there are a couple of things that you may want to consider before seeking additional assistance.

According to information provided by the manufacturer, the light on your Xbox 360's power supply should still light up green even when the console has encountered a three red light problem. If the light on the power supply isn't green, you will want to take different actions based on what color is displayed. If this light is red, the AC adaptor may either be defective or has recently overheated. If the light is orange, you may need to double-check all cable connections are secure. If the light on the AC adaptor isn't lit, the AC adaptor may need to be replaced.

Alternatively, you may want to try turning the Xbox 360 off, then pressing the power button again roughly 10-15 seconds later. If the unit powers on normally and the three red lights disappear, the system may simply have needed to be reset.

Should the problem persist however, you may need to speak directly with Microsoft for further assistance, as three red lights often indicate a hardware failure that requires repairs. You can reach Microsoft's toll-free Xbox support hotline at 800-4MY-XBOX (800-469-9269), or you can always request service through the Xbox website:

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

You don't need any money mate. Microsoft recently extended their warranty to 3 years for the three red lights problem. all you have to do is get in touch with microsoft and tell them about the three red lights, and they should either repair your X Box or they will replace it with a new one.
Good luck mate
