on the board just after the hdmi connector there is a chip check this for cracks or any thing that dont look normal. if looks fin there is a row of resisters these should all have around the same resistance. change if dont set with others. if you get a blue screen when on hdmi that dont say no signal then it is the main graph chip at fault. best to do both chips the main processor and the graphic chip, remove the heatsink's and put a copper sleeve over them both and some new heat sink paste and put the heat shields back on, use a hair dryer and heat them up then tighten the screws up on the heatsinks, then put back in the unit. should work again now. if not then its a faulty mother board and further testing will need to be done.
THE PROBLEM IS DUE TO EXTREAM HEAT GENERATED BY THE 'GPU' WHICH IS NOT DISSSIPATED PROPERLY OR HEATSINK COMPOUND IS DRY
OPEN BOARD-REMOVE HEATSINK WITH FAN-CLEAR OLD HTSINK COMPOUND-CLEAN ALL THE SURFACE-GET HEAT GUN-COVER UP REST PORTION WITH ALUMINIUM FOIL-HEAT UP THE GPU 2.30 TO 3.50 MINUTES WITH FLUX-COOL DOWN FOR 7 MINUTES

1 The heatsink compound has seeped away from the
GPU and or CPU chip set.This will force the console
to over heat quickly 1 min or less.
Open the console remove the heatsinks for both chips
clean of the old heatsink compound and reapplie heatsink compound ( Articsilver5) and reassemble and test.
2 if solution 1 failed then the console will need to have the
chips reflowed and reclamp , or you can do what's called
and x clamp mod with screw and washer .This will probably
fix your console but it's a quick fix and doesn't last long.
If you have any further questions your welcome to ask.
Goto the hard wear store buy 8 10-32 x 3/8 long pan head screws Goto Radio Shack buy a tube of articsilver5 Now get a set of torx screw drivers ,you need T8 and T10 sizes find a tutorial on how to disassemble your console. remove all the studs on both heatsinks and remove the heatsink paste clean off the thermal paste from the G.P.U- C.P.U
Now place a small amount off articsilvers on the G.P.U-C.P.U spread it around with your finger ,till you have good coverage Place both heatsink back on line up the holes and just finger tight thread all the screws back in so that both heatsinks are level finger tight only then turn etch screw a full turn till snug not tight
put the unit back together leave the fan hanging out . Now place half the fan over the the large heatsink . and power up . After 5 min the fan should be at full speed normally 4 more min you should see two red lights unplug and reassemble , and this will get you up and running average running time is 2-4 month .
P.S. heat gun repairs will destroy your Board , so a word to the wise , have a shop do a proper re-flow never attempt to re-flow with a heat gun.
2 red flashing lights means your console overheated you just needed to let it cool and or check the fans and other cooling components, and by the sounds of it not heating up you have cooked the chips by trying to fix it so you console is basically a paper weight now, sorry
hello you have the red rings of death which means that your xbox 360 is overheating and need the rrod repair if you have brought the xbox within the first 6 months you can send it back to xbox and they should repair it otherwise if its older than 6 months old there are people that repair consoles
did you check if your cable was switched from hd to standard or for any frayed or ripped wireing also check the connections it could be the tv is set to another channel just the small stuff like that or hold the power button the the xbox til it turns off
is it the heatsink is tight enough and the position of the heatsink are balance or not because if the heatsink not balance gpu or cpu will not properly transfer the heat and make sure to there is no component touching the heatsink suchas condensator on the left of the main memory ic's with brown color 2 thiny things, and that my your console still 3rrod. if you have done check it up repeat the instuction from the fist and the fan is on and the shroud was in original place and heat up the console with towel for fasting the heat.
note. the 3rrod came because the component soldering not properly soldered or that had sort contact with the other component.
