3 red lights? in a kinda 3/4 circle?
if so you have RROD (red ring of death)
only thing to do if you still have warranty or something is to bring it back and they will send it back to microsoft,
Its unfixable unless by a technician.
Unlucky man its happened to most of us (me twice >_<)

My 360 will not turn on. The power light on the adaptor is red. It stopped and came back a week ago but the power adaptor was making a weird whirring noise. Is it the Console or the power adaptor?


If the power adapter for your Xbox 360 is red and your console does not turn on, you may want to follow this guide.

My xbox freezes and flashes red


2 red lights is overheating, try giving it a dust out and if this does not work you will need to stop the heat build up inside.

To do this you can send it in or use a good Xbox 360 Repair guide to fix it.

Stop the heat and you will be fine.

This may sound weird, but if you cover the entire xbox in towls, making sure to cover all the exhast vents, turn it on, then wait 10-15min; when you unrap it, turn it on again and it should start up. Keep in mind that this is usually just a temporary fix.

HELP


will be a hardware error
will have to contact microsoft there is a temperory fix for this problem. what you need is two towels just normal bathroom towels take everything out of your xbox e.g
harddrive,controlers etc only things to leave in is the av cable and power supply as you wanna turn
on the xbox lie a towel flat on the ground and lie the xbox on its side ontop of the towel turn the
xbox on, you will see the error message and the red lights flash. wrap the towel around your xbox
covering the air vents and then the 2nd towel put over the top. leave it on in the towels for about
20 mins then after that take all the towels off turn off the console and leave to cool down for 15
mins. turn the xbox on and it should restart again fine but only lasts for a couple of days then you
have to do it again. wont fix it but will let u play while microsoft gets it.

hope this helps please rate me
