Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
When i switch on the xbox 360 it starts flashing red
If you go here, there is a way to access the technical subsystem in your xbox 360 using the connect and eject buttons and find out the specific hardware error you are having. If you can designate what the exact piece is, you can check it for damage of re-insert the loose piece(maybe touch it up with thermal glue to keep it running cool. If you get error 0102, don't bother trying to fix it because it could be an error anywhere on the xbox 360. Either trade your broken xbox 360 at Gamestop in toward a Wii or PS3 purchase or you can wait in the "mail-box line" with Microsoft to repair your box if it's still within the 3 year warranty for free. Call them and they will tell you if it is or not. Your just gonna get the same P.O.S. back anyways for it to break on you again in a year, something to keep in mind since the first time around was so fun.

1 Red Ring = Serious Hardware Failure
I f your XBOX 360 has a 1 red flashing light error, you're more than likely in big trouble. The 1 flashing red ring of light can be due to GPU or CPU failure, RAM overheating, a DVD drive error, or some serious problem with your Xbox 360's internal components. The most common 1 flashing red ring lights error is the E74 error. The E74 error is no easy fix for the Xbox 360 and usually has to be repaired by the manufacturer [though some have managed to repair it with the heat gun trick - but be careful]
2 Red Rings = Overheating
Mostly all red flashing lights on the Xbox 360 rings are due to overheating in some way or other, but the 2 red rings singles out overheating as the main issue. When doing the X-Clamp fix the 2 red rings are required to fix the Xbox 360 by overheating the CPU. If you get this Xbox 360 error without doing the X-Clamp fix, you probably just need to let your Xbox 360 cool down for a few hours. Make sure that all vents aren't blocked off and that your Xbox fans are working properly in order to repair this problem.

The most common error on the Xbox 360 is the 3 red rings - also known as the Red Rings of Death (RRoD). This flashing lights problem is the main cause of Xbox 360's 54.2% failure rate. The 3 red flashing lights can be due to lots of different errors but is mainly due to the X-Clamps in your Xbox 360 and overheating. Fortunately, lots of people were able to fix this issue using the X-Clamp and heat gun fix. Follow this list of error codes to find out the real issue with the 3 red rings because there are quite a few of them.
