There are 4 different kinds of RROD on a xbox 360. When the ring of light shows 1 red light, it means there is a minor hardware issue. If it shows 2 red lights, it means it over heated. If it shows 3, it has a major hardware failure and 4 red lights means that you dont have your A/V cables plugged in. Hope this helps.

Have a Xbox 360 could hear but can't see picture is it the concole or harddrive

You can test this by removing the hard drive from the unit and restarting.

Most likely you are suffering from the rrod (red ring of death)

This is caused by many things, but in this case, it would be too much heat to the graphics processor. If your xbox is still under warranty, call microsoft and get it replaced.

if not, there is really nothing that can be done for a sure fire fix. There are a lot of people out there making fixes that dont last, so in the long run, its better to invest the money that you would spend on getting it fixed to buy a new one (if it is rrod).

You also want to make sure it's not your television. Try hooking the xbox up to a different tv if one is available, if not, try a different input on the same television, or try to hook up a different device to where the xbox is hooked into the tv... just to make sure the TV is in good working order.

Xbox 360 repair 3 red lights

The 3 red lights issue is known as the red ring of death(or RROD)
This is caused by the x clamps used to hold down the processor.
The x clamps cause to much pressure which causes the xbox 360 to think it is over heating. Microsoft has issues a extended warranty for RROD issue. You can reach Microsoft by calling 1800 my xbox. The link below is to a Youtube video walk through on how to resolve the issue.

I hope the info listed above has helped in some way.
If possible please rate this solution.
