Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Hi, the problem you are having is all related to the dreaded rrod problem, now 3 red lights means hardware failure now this could mean the cpu or gpu chip has over heated and the solder holding it onto the circuit board has cracked and this is whats causing you the problem. now if you look on the date on the xbox it will tell you if you have any warranty left as this problem is covered by xbox warranty for 3 years so if you are within this time period you need to contact xbox and they will then collect and send you out another repaired xbox, but their is no guarantee on how long the other xbox will last and it will not be covered by any warranty.
Their isnt much you can do yourself to repair the problem your having, their are people out their like me who do the repairs on these and 9 out of 10 of the times they can be fixed but you do get some that are scrap when they have the 3 red lights.
its up to you you could either sell it and put the money towards a new one or pay to have it repaired, check your warranty first and let me know what you want to do as i may be able to assist you further ok.
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Testimonial: "Well that sucks, but thanks for being honest with me! I'll check in to it, I'm pretty sure I'm still covered... but I'll be sure to ask further!"
Thanks for your question. To fix the 3 red lights what you will need to do is stop the heat getting to the GPU and the CPU and to do this you can use a good Xbox 360 Repair guide or of course you can send it in. The repair guide gives you ways to fix the problem yourself, easy and fast. good luck

With this error I would call Microsoft support center.
