This exact thing is happening to not only me but to also a friend of mine. You will probably notice that the fan kicks on really high and then goes to 2 flashing red lights, this is because the 360 is overheating or thinks its overheating. My friend's 360 starts up with the fan kicked on high and then only plays for a minute or 2, followed by the 2 red lights. If its under warranty send it back to Microsoft, I took mine and my friends 360 apart and replaced the thermal paste with arctic silver, but it kind of only helped a little for mine and not at all for my friends. SEND IT BACK!!!!!!

My 360 keeps on flashing 3 red lights what


This is known as the red ring of death for the xbox 360. This can be caused by dust buildup in the console, causing the unit to overheat. Once the unit overheats, it melts the solder on the main board causing it to bridge(connect). Once the solder bridges it shorts out the board causing teh error you have now. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty with this site: https://service1.us.playstation.com/rma.htm?_flowExecutionKey=_c74F6F6DC-010F-702F-F7B7-E686B4425EB2_k8F68F48C-6748-9A10-9A9A-B6909CBA0A4E

If the unit is not under warranty, go to www.wiredextreme.com. We are a console repair company based in Texas, and we can get your console up and running again. We give a free diagnosis of what is wrong with the unit, and will call with an estimate of repair. All our work is covered by a 90 day warranty, and you can buy up to 4 years worth of warranty.

Flashing red ring on x box 360 console


3 Blinking red lights often means that your Xbox 360 has suffered from hardware failure.

4 Blinking red lights means that your Audio / Video cable is not correctly connected (it's the colorful one; Red, white, yellow; green, blue, red if Component)

If it IS just three lights, and you bought your xbox 360 under three years ago, call 1-800-4MY-XBOX

X box 360 red ring of death costless solution


You don't need any money mate. Microsoft recently extended their warranty to 3 years for the three red lights problem. all you have to do is get in touch with microsoft and tell them about the three red lights, and they should either repair your X Box or they will replace it with a new one.
Good luck mate

Xbox 360 red light


Repair Xbox 360 - 3 Red Lights 3-red-lights.jpg
James at joystiq fixed his own 360 that was flashing three red lights, which indicates an internal error.
If you have this problem try to fix it yourself before sending the unit in.
1) Remove your hard drive and/or memory units.
2) Run “Initial Setup” under the system blade.
3) Decline inserting HDD or memory unit when prompted.
4) Sync your controller and pop in a game.
It might save your xbox 360 a repair return.

and if you do try to fix it yourself, or you've voided the warranty ( by already opening it) make sure you DON"T do the " towel Fix " it will only make things worse. you need to do an X Clamp repair. It's simple. I had no experiance whatsoever.with electronics. and I was able to figure it out the first time I tried it. I did it three weeks ago and my X box is quieter than ever and it works fine. so serach on you tube " X Box 360 X clamp fix " and you should see what you need to fix your problem.
