Check to see if the motherboard is warped or melted around the heatsinks. If not, try adding some extra thermal compound to the chips and then screwing back on the heatsinks.Make sure you clean off the crusted original thermal compound first. This is assuming you dow not still have your warrenty. Otherwise, contact microsoft and mail it back to them.

How do i get rid of 3red rings?

his indicates a hardware failure inside the xbox. Your xbox 360 will need to be serviced by Microsoft. There are many internal problems that can cause the three red lights, also known as the "red ring of death" If you would like more information, wikipedia has a good explanation.

You can call 1-800-4MY-XBOX end_of_the_skype_highlighting to start the repair process with Microsoft.

If your system is out of warranty, there are methods you can attempt to repair the problem yourself, but there is no guarantee that they will work.

The red ring of death is a serious hardware failure and not easy to fix and the fix's are not permanent. Your best bet is to buy a new 360 elite as they are only 200 now. unless you have a warranty on yours.

Towel Trick

Wrapping your console in towels then turning it on and letting it run for a few minutes. Its purpose is to get rid of the "red" ring of death. But doing so will void your warranty.
