Yes microsoft should fix this problem for free under their free 3 years extended warranty thats just for the RROD. This can only be done though if the console is under 3 years old. If you ring xbox up they should pick it up from you and you'll get it back in no time. Really the shop should take it back as you've only had it for 6 months but this may just be because you've got no reciept.

My xbox 360 has 3 red lights and is not working


Turn your Xbox off for like 3 hours..... Turn it back on, if ERROR 74 shows up then you have RROD "Red Ring Of Death".... https://myservice.xbox.com/en-us/Pages/Welcome.aspx If you haven't had it for three years yet, you can send it in to Microsoft and they will fix it free of charge... Next time, try to use the Xbox less.... The more you use it the more it is prone to overheating melting a motherboard chip thus causing error 74

if you have one, two, or three rings, give the xbox a lot of time to cool down. If you have four, your xbox is fried.

IGOT 3 RINGS OF DETH


Three red lights on the ring of light is an indication of a hardware failure

1. Turn off the xbox 360, disconnect the cables wait for 20 seconds reconnect the cables and turn it back on.

2. Check the light on the power supply ( The big brick that goes to your wall )
If the light is green that means the power supply is OK
If the light is Red that means the power supply needs to be replaced

3. If above steps doesn't work, you need to contact xbox customer support to get your xbox repaired
and shipping and handling will be covered.

Xbox 360 won't work at all now


this sounds like your xbox is overheating. If you could try to run it in an area that has a lot of air that flows over the back. you could also plug in a usb fan on the back of the 360. note, if you continue to let the xbox overheat, this could lead to the rings of death which is three rings flashing. If that happens you have no hope. Hope this post helps.
