Hi there, they may have changed the dvd drive.

the fans should be working you can tell if they work by just get a piece of paper and place it where the fans are to see if they blowing air out.

Or it could have been they have changed the drive. Microsoft may have added an exter heatsink.

My xbox 360 has 3 blinking lights on it and its not working what do i do about it instead of spending all that money sending it to microsoft where they would charge me a hundred dollars

This is considered the RROD or red ring of death. There are a number of tutorials for trying to solve this problem. If the box is still under warranty then I would sacrifice the time to send it in to have it fixed. If not you can attempt some of the fixes listed below. The reflow method is the most permanent fix but the others have been known to work also. Lastly, you can sell your xbox on ebay and recover a certain amount if you simply want to use that money to buy and xbox slim. Good luck.

if theres two red lights all that means is that its overheating. unplug all ur cables and put it underneath ur bed for an hour, then plug everything back in and keep playing

Freezing 360, vibrating controller, colored lines on screen.

3 red lights is the red ring of death, 4 means your AV cable is disconnected. If it freezes up though, you have a bad DVD player in it. I would send it back.

No picture no sound.

You can try the following :

1.It might be a sign of over heating.

Is your Xbox in a open space? Like on top of a tv stand or something? Do not put it on the floor.

2.Make shure there is about 6 inches of space behind your xbox.
Get a hover, with the brush attactment and hover up the back and the vents.

3.Probably the fan.
There is something caught in it maybe.

And the last ... believe it or not ...
Its not a problem, therefor there is no solution. When an xbox makes a loud noise, or a croaking noise like you described...believe it or not....its totally normal, 100%.

I work for xbox tech support and I get ppl calling for this all the time, and the OFFICIAL word from Microsoft is, its normal, its going to happen to some consoles.

Short of taking it apart yourself, there isn't much you can do. The same thing happened to mine (I was also receiving the red rings). I sent mine back (due to the red rings)and they sent a new 360. If it is still under warranty, I highly suggest phoning Microsoft and explaining the situation. Also remember, if you are experiencing the red rings, Microsoft has extended the warranty to 3 years.
