If you have a hard drive, clearing the cache might resolve the one red light error. Also, you can try to remove the hard drive and power on the Xbox 360 Console without the hard drive to see if the red light will still occur. If it doesn't appear it is the hard drive causing the error and needs replacement, if it does flash the red light still, it is a hardware failure in your Xbox already.

SOURCE: The xbox 360 red light flash
turn it on and wrap it with 2 towels for 20 minutes(the idea is to overheat it), then unrap the towels and let it cool down for 20 minutes. Then, walla it works.

2 red lights is the overheating error, you will need to try and dust out the console, or what you can do is send it in to get it fixed or use a good guide to fix it
