All four rings keep flashing red going around

If all 4 rings are red that means that something isn't plugged in correctly. Try unplugging everything, then plugging them back in if you can't find what isn't plugged in.

X Box 360 Arcade - when you turn on a flashing red ring around the on button comes on.

If all the lights around it are flashing then most likely you have the red ring of death problem. Microsoft covers with warranty from 3 years after the manufactured date which you can find on the back of the 360. If it's still covered have it repaired otherwise you may want to consider selling it for parts and buying a replacement.
Thank you,

Cannot open the disk and cannot read the disk as well. The green light at the center of the ring always blinking

If you only get a flashing green light on the center while you turn on the console. You should get a green light going in a circle around the center light, (the 4 other lights, that can turn red as well (famous Red Ring of death))
if you don't get any red or green lights around the flashing center ring, then the console is not able to turn on / boot up properly and is in need of repairs, check the powersupply led, what color is it? it should be green when you power on and orange when not in use.

Trying to turn xbox on and getting blinking red ring around power button

If you are having three red lights flashing around the power button with upper right corner not flashing, it means that your Xbox 360 is having a general hardware failure. This is caused by the internal components of the console experiencing a malfunction. You can contact Microsoft Xbox Support for it to be repaired.

Four lights around the power button flash red on your Xbox 360 console. Four flashing lights indicates that the console does not detect an audio/video (AV) cable.
Note Four flashing red lights will not appear on consoles that have both an AV port and an HDMI port.

2 red rings on x box 360

You need to buy a cooler for the back of the 360.This helps the airflow to prevent overheating.Make sure the vents in the back have enough space.

3 flashing red lights. what should i do?

There is no way to fix the red flashing lights, otherwise known as the "Ring of Death", except by sending it in to Microsoft. If your warranty has not yet expired, it will be a free repair. If it has expired, it will cost around $100 and you will be given a new one-year warranty. The number to call to find out how to send it, please call 1-800-4-myxbox

Red ring

Bring it in for service. Usually that means a hardware issue. Hopefully you purchased extended warranty.
