Hello there

From what you have said it sounds like you have the RED RINGS ERROR

The main causes are Hardware failure, overheating or wear & tear.

You may need to perform simple maintenance, clean or in some cases adjust settings.

To get the best advice on where to start I recommend a GOOD REPAIR GUIDE, From this you can fix the problem at home and avoid any large repair bills. Its easier than it sounds when you have help from the guide.

I used Gamer Fix to get the best guides

The other solution would be to send the console off to its manufacturer, This is free if your still in warranty. If your console is out of warranty then the usual price of repair is $150

I am Glad I could help and You can help others by rating this Post or leaving a comment.
Many thanks

My Xbox 360 powers on normally I can hear the startup of my Xbox but there is no video. I have purchased new AV cables and ended up with the same result. I think that it could be my video card within the...

It may be your video output i.e. your TV. Check your console on another TV or projector. It shouldn't be your console's AV cable output if the audio works. (both audio and video come from that cable) I'm not completely certain you can solve it if it's your console, unless you send it in or pop up the case and mess with it (which is inadvisable). Give Xbox a call and they'll help you troubleshoot it- 1-800-4MYXBOX. If your still within your warranty years, and it needs to be sent in, you shouldn't be charged. Good Luck!

Has three red rings and it wont come on

this is a major hardware failure. luckily xbox has a 3 year warranty for this issue and if you call 1800 4 my xbox they will set up a repair order for your console.

on the other hand if its older than 3 years they will charge you 140 dollars to fix it.

I have 2 red rings and its cooled down what do i do?

this signals hardware failure, and you need to call microsoft and have them send you a box to ship the 360 in so they can fix it. if it's still under warranty, it should be free.

Three red rings flashing

if it is red(or darker orange) you have the three rings of death most of the time that means to send your x-box back to the manufacturer. but call Microsoft first.

those are the red rings of death means that your xbox either overheated or malfunctioned. Now this might sound crazy but wrap the 360 in dry towels and keep the 360 on for 20 mins with the towel then unplugg it then let it sit then turn it on if its still like that send it to microsoft to get it fixed.
