I assume you mean your Xbox isn't working? This sounds like the common problem they have. They are all under warranty because of this problem. Microsoft will pay shipping to have it serviced. Their turn around time is really fast as well. There is a temporary solution, but it involves wrapping a towel around it and leaving it on for hours.
I would just return it for service.
Good luck,
Lee

Tip

What to do if you have 3 flashing red lights on your Xbox 360 Console?


If you have the 3 rings of Death (3 Flashing Red Lights) on your xbox 360 console, all you need to do is to contact Xbox Support and report this issue with them. The Console has a 3 year warranty for the 3 flashing red lights. Just make sure you did the following first:

1. Power Cycle your Console (Turn it off, unplug the power adapter from the wall outlet, wait for 30 seconds, turn it back on)**This is the best solution and it usually works!!

2. If still persist, Turn it off, remove any accessories connected to it (Hard Drive, Controllers, etc.) turn it back on without those accessories. **These accessories sometimes causes the problem.

3. If removing these accessories removed the 3 flashing lights, attach the accessories one at a time, every time turning it off and attaching one and turning it back on checking each time if the red lights (any lights) appeared. It will tell you what is causing the error.

4. If all else fails, again CONTACT XBOX TECH SUPPORT on their Toll free number. Make sure that you tell the tech that you have done those things above so they can create a report for the issue. They love the 3 flashing red lights issue. I should know, I am formerly one of them. :)

2 red lights


Your xbox is overheating.
1. Let your Xbox 360 console cool. You may have to wait several hours for your console to cool enough. Don't turn on your Xbox 360 console when the console is hot. 2. Verify that your Xbox 360 console has enough ventilation and that the fans are operating. 3. If the two lights continue to flash after trying the above steps, you'll need to contact Xbox Customer Support.

Xbox fixed itself from 3 lights but other problem


When someone say that his/her Xbox is having 3 red lights problem, It means it needs to be repaired. If you are using Cooler than it is not a cure but a prevention. You could have used cooler before acutally having the problem just to prevent your Xbox. But now you will have to either get it repaired from Microsoft (in case your Xbox's warranty is not expired, but one thing to note is that you will have to wait for at least 3-4 weeks to get back your Xbox) or you can Fix your Xbox's 3 Flashing red lights problem yourself with the help of DIY Video guide available on Internet. You can fix yourself without any technical knowledge.

Lights Flashing On Xbox 360 Controller


So the sytem is working but the controller isn't connecting? Try fresh batteries, try removing things that might interfere with the controller (cell phones, large metal things between the controller and the xbox, portable house phones, bluetooth devices), try another controller if possible (borrow one).

Flashing red and green light in xbox


You have a major failure on the motherboard. If it was your hard drive the system will boot up, but freeze on the main screen and you will hear clicking coming out of the hard drive. Red and Green flashing lights means there is a problem on the motherboard. Sometimes you can fix the problem by reflashing the Bios on the main motherboard.
