If youve taken apart the system and it still doesnt work, the only thing i can say is the system is done. take it to your nearest diagnostics center or call microsoft directly. you can either go to ebay to try to find your needed parts or simply request a "coffin" [box to ship your 360] from microsoft, send it out and basically... wait.
hope it helped

When my Xbox had the red rings of death, I tried a number of options, however the only thing that worked was bringing it in for repairs. If you have not taken the Xbox apart the warranty is valid and Microsoft will fix it for free.

My ps3 shut down in the middle of game play. Then when I tried turning it pack on, this is what happens... The power light flashes until I touch the power button, then it goes solid red. That means it's...

It seems that your unit may have overheated while you were playing that game, that yellow like you are talking about is the 360's Red Ring of Death. Try this, eject the HDD and let it cool off for about 24 hours. Don't put it in the refrigerator or anything, just let it cool off. Tomorrow, pop it back in and make sure there's nothing covering the air vents. Dust, Paper, a Blu-Ray Player, Home Theater Box, a Wii, a 360, anything.
If it's still doing it tomorrow, call SCEA (1-800-345-7669)

You can take it off and try cleaning it, that might help but be careful when you pull it out and put it back in.

Red ring of death and freezing

How many segments show in the RROD? It may be that the unit is overheating. You can open the case and remove the shielding until the heat sink (large aluminum fins) is visible. The outer case opens much like a clamshell once the case screws and gray plastic end pieces are removed. There is one not-so-obvious case screw through the middle from the bottom which makes the inner components hard to access. Take your time and do not force anything. If the heat sink is dusty, blow it off with compressed air or dust-off and reassemble. This will probably stop the freezing. It is advisable to keep the unit is a cool, dust and smoke-free environment if possible to prevent this problem in the future.

it might not play cause the bigger system is alil bit older tech so the laser might not be able to read it but thats not normally the case probably the laser is dirty on the bigger system some duster might help to blow dust off the laser but you might have to take it apart to clean it

Red lights

theres one solution its iffy and may work for only a short amount of time the red lights of death is trouble light if all three are on you could do this but it isnt recommended if you can ship it out or get it repaired but if you must do this wrap it in a towel and turn it on for anywhere from 10-30 minutes till it over heats turn it off and let it sit then try it out its worked for me once but the amount of time you can play it for varries on severity of the internal problems
