Your processor needs a reflow. A BGA reflow station is the best to use, heatguns can blast heat everywhere, but a professional station will concentrate it onto the required area.

Red Ring of Death: Red Flashing XBOX 360 Lights Explained Common Xbox 360 Red Ring Errors The XBOX has a reported 54.2% failure rate which makes the XBOX 360 gaming consoles' worst "lemon" to date. If you find yourself with the red flashing lights error, --> follow this guide to try and pinpoint the problem with your XBOX 360.
1 Red Ring = Serious Hardware Failure
I f your XBOX 360 has a 1 red flashing light error, you're more than likely in big trouble. The 1 flashing red ring of light can be due to GPU or CPU failure, RAM overheating, a DVD drive error, or some serious problem with your Xbox 360's internal components. The most common 1 flashing red ring lights error is the E74 error. The E74 error is no easy fix for the Xbox 360 and usually has to be repaired by the manufacturer [though some have managed to repair it with the heat gun trick - but be careful]
2 Red Rings = Overheating
Mostly all red flashing lights on the Xbox 360 rings are due to overheating in some way or other, but the 2 red rings singles out overheating as the main issue. When doing the X-Clamp fix the 2 red rings are required to fix the Xbox 360 by overheating the CPU. If you get this Xbox 360 error without doing the X-Clamp fix, you probably just need to let your Xbox 360 cool down for a few hours. Make sure that all vents aren't blocked off and that your Xbox fans are working properly in order to repair this problem.
3 Red Rings = Basic Hardware Failure
The most common error on the Xbox 360 is the 3 red rings - also known as the Red Rings of Death (RRoD). This flashing lights problem is the main cause of Xbox 360's 54.2% failure rate. The 3 red flashing lights can be due to lots of different errors but is mainly due to the X-Clamps in your Xbox 360 and overheating. Fortunately, lots of people were able to fix this issue using the X-Clamp and heat gun fix. Follow this list of error codes to find out the real issue with the 3 red rings because there are quite a few of them.

Ok this is joshluda with the xbox 360 (that will not power on)... Now by processors do you mean GPU & CPU DWDpcRepair? If so then I do got a 25watt Soldering gun... now do I just put it on-to the processor directley and after that then what? Thanks bro
consloe king to your answer yes I did apply silver thermal paste and re connected the heat sinks.... but it just will not power on... and the power supply is working perfectly.... thanks keep the answers coming guys thanks!
right so the problem, maybe with the power conecter at the back of the xbox 360
did you apply thermal paste on the chips if so there may not be enough paste on them
your processors might need to be reflowed. this can be done with a heat gun but you risk frying your board if overheated.
