First, make sure the power supply is fully plugged into to the back of the system. When the power supply is out even a little bit this can also cause red ring failure.

If this is not it, this is most likely caused by overheating within the system causing some of the components on the circuit board to break connection. You can return the unit to Microsoft, or look on Ebay for businesses offering red light fixes. In recent years with many of the Xbox 360 systems having this failure, video game shops and other repair businesses are buying the machine necessary to repair red light failures and other problems.

This can be caused by a number of things; you can find out what caused it by finding the secondary error code. However, most of the time, The red ring of death can be traced back to problems with the GPU. I'm assuming that you mean 3 red lights, not 4. If its 4 lights, try plugging in your A/V cable. if its 3, then your GPU is separating itself from the motherboard. The best fix is a reflow or a reball with leaded solder. If it is less than 3 years old, microsoft will fix it for free. If not, find a reflow or reball service. Send me an email at if you have questions.
