It is most likely your AV. Unplug power to power supply and Xbox and un plug AV cord. Let it sit for 15 Minutes and the plug everything back up and see if that corrects the problem if that doesnt repair problem google xbox360RROD... or search what do the red lights on Xbox 360 mean. Keep searching you will find what you are looking for eventually.

SOURCE: 3 red rings

yes over heating best to go microsoft care point or support online at x-box site and see what your nearest service point. -my self ,i use to fix two fans one to increase the cooling system and one to brought out the heat, all most the solution care about increase the cooling factor, but they always ignoring that the heat should be go out. by this you can play most of games and operate your x-box as long you want . -some of x-box board components might affected by been heated and cooling in normal operating so this case you should reflow the GPU and CPU. Nothing safe than use jovy RE-7500 to make this process .

If you only have two red lights that means your xbox is overheated I had this trouble and took mine out to the air compresser and blew massive dust out of it,It's been 2 months now no lights.

SOURCE: one flashing red light on xbox360 ( not red ring)

The specific type of hardware failure can be determined by a "hidden" error code
Turn the xbox 360 on, and wait till the 3 red lights are flashing.
Press and hold the sync up button (the small white one), while holding that button press the eject button.
The LEDs will now blink the first number in the code (as described below).
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the second number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the third number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the forth number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will go back to the 3 red flashing lights.
You should be able to determine the difference between the 3 flashing lights and the error code lights by the rate in which they flash.
Here is how you interpret the LEDs to get the code number:
All four lights flashing - 0
One light flashing - 1
Two Lights flashing - 2
Three lights flashing - 3

Once you get this code, go to:
To get the reason for the code.

My xbox 360 freezes after being on for a couple of minutes. How do i stop this

If it freezes and then the next time you turn it on has red lights on the console display check out the corresponding Microsoft articles for the number of red rings on the display. They appear in quadrants on it.
1 red ring
2 red rings
3 red rings
4 red rings

If you do not have any rings, your console may just be overheating. Give it a while to cool down and if that doesn't work, give Microsoft a call: 1-800-4MYXBOX. Good Luck!

Red ring on xbox 360 how do i fix it


Commonly known as ' Red Ring of Death '. Unfixable and Uncontrollable :(

Follow the below steps :-

Step 1: Swear a lot
Step 2: Call 1-800-4MYXBOX (Or 1-800-469-9269)
Step 3: You're going to start hearing a guy named "Max" talk to you, he's just a computer, just keep repeating the phrase "Agent" over and over again, it's a keyword that you don't find out unless you've called before, it directs you to a real person.
Step 3.5: If "Max" asks what console you're talking about, answer "Xbox 360"
Step 4: Tell the agent (Who will probably ask for your name first) that your Xbox360 got the three red rings of death (Mention three red rings, not just "red rings")
Step 5: At this point the person will most likely ask you to run some tests, they'll ask you to try running the xbox360 with the hard drive not attached, and then they'll ask you other stuff like what color the power cord box is, etc. etc. This is to see if your hard drive, power cable, or the xbox itself has a problem so it's not useless, just be wait it out
Step 6: They'll ask you for some billing things and just answer where you want to get the package, they'll also give you a reference number
Step 7: (This takes 3-5 days:) They'll send you a box with some foam, plastic, and sticky tape for packages.
Step 8: Get a label and stick the reference number they gave you on your xbox
Step 9: Put your xbox in the plastic that comes with it, and then put the foam things on
Step 10: Put the 360 in the box (It's prepaid) and then close it up using the tape they gave you
Step 11: Use the sticky tape you got to close the box again, then go to the post office and send it out to the return address that's on there.
Step 12: Wait 3-5 Weeks
Step 13: You should get a new xbox360 within that time

If the box takes longer than 5 days, or your xbox takes longer then 5 weeks, call them again and mention you're reference #

Rings of death

the "3 rings of death" or the so called "3 red lights" is actually caused by GPU overheating and mainboard flexing. When you need to do is open your xbox360 (warning, this will void your warranty) add more cooling fan inside your xbox360, you'd want to use 80mm fans coz they fit perfectly. you can fit up to two 80mm fans inside your xbox360.

Also, if you notice that your xbox360's mainboard is warped you need to fix this by disconnecting all the connections from the board. then place the board on a flat surface. then use a hair drier to heat the board and flat it out. its kinda complicated. hehe, at least you now have an idea on whats causing the 3 red lights...
