The Ring of Death and it means your xbox is broke if its less than a year old and you have a receipt take it back to the shop you got it from but if its over a year old xbox have extended the warranty to 3 years contact them and they should repair it but it could take a while to get it back

No, this light often occurs when an av cable is not properly connected. The red ring of death occurs with the xbox 360.

I have 2 red flashing rings on my xbox can i fix this without sending the console to MS?

Ah, this simply means it overheated, try moving it away from anything that would block heat from escaping the console, and give it a break. Try putting it in a cooler environment, but not to cold. Just make sure it doesn't get to hot.
Glad to help! :)

My xbox has 1/3 of ah red ring, what does that mean?

This means that the xbox 360 has overheated. Try not playing the xbox for a while, then see what you can do. If the game seems grainy, then i prefer to go to Gamestop. The circuits may be overheated dur to you playing so much.

Ring of fire

When someone say that his/her Xbox is having red ring 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.
