No :( Call 1-800-MY-XBOX and listen for Hardware > Red Lights and you will be guided from there by Microsoft.

What TiFVan said is not true. There are several ways to fix the red ring, the most popular and most permanent solution being the replacement of the thermal compound on the cpu and gpu (i would recommend using arctic silver thermal compound). there are also several temporary solutions that can be found on youtube.

I have 3 red rings on my xbox360 how can i fix it

Three Red Rings is known as the "RROD" problem,You cannot fix that at home,but Microsoft offers a 3 year maintenance for it,So check your manufacturing date and if its under 3 years then go to and order a shipment package to get it fixed for free...or it will cost you...

My Hard drive has been making a mysterious clicking noise and now it isn't letting me play my games at all. also i have the three red rings of death and need advice on how to fix them.

The only thing you can do at this point, is to call Xbox tech support and see if they can repair your Xbox. The red ring of death is a well known classic problem, and it happens repeatedly to almost all Xbox users. This is a problem that's deeply embedded in the hardware and there are no short term fixes.

The clicking noise probably means your hard drive is dying... again, not a whole lot you can do about it without contacting Xbox tech support.

You can contact Microsoft's Xbox tech support by using the following URL:

Three red lights xbox 360

This is known as the Red rings of death. It is caused by hardware overheating. The only way to fix this without voiding your warranty is to contact Microsoft Support and arrange a return to them for repair. You'll be without your XBox for awhile but they will fix it free of charge. Hope this helps.

Three Red Lights/Ring of death.

Free fixes? Impossible.

What causes the ROD is a loose processor. You can buy a better part and install it. I believe there should be a YouTube Video on this. There should be parts on eBay.

I hope this helped.

You will have to either get it repaired from Microsoft (in case your Xbox's warranty is not expired, but one thing to note is that you will have to wait for at least 3-4 weeks to get back your Xbox) or you can Fix your Xbox's 3 Flashing red lights problem yourself with the help of DIY Video guide available on Internet. You can fix yourself without any technical knowledge.
