Unfortunately this is a very touchy situation. There is one home method for curing this problem.

1). Wrap your Xbox 360 Console COMPLETELY with a towel, so you can only see the power button, and the three flashing red lights.

2). Power on your console.

3). Leave for 30-45 minutes.

4). Power off the console.

5). Unwrap the towel from the console.

6). Power on.

**Problem Solved** If not continue reading.

After that you are unfortunately forced to call the dreaded Microsoft Customer Support Line

1-800-4-MY-XBOX
1-800-469-9269

And ask to create a repair order, they will send you a Purolator (or FedEx) shipping box. You have to send your console to them, they will repair it and have it to you within (2-3 business weeks).

3 red lights box under 3 years old


RED LIGHT OF DEATH!
The three flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with your Xbox 360 motherboard or power supply.You can test power supply with a voltmeter from power supply wires to the connections on the motherboard. If no power or low power, the supply is bad. If there is plenty of power, then motherboard could have bad capacitor or chipset on it causing the problems. You can test those with an ohmmeter to see which component is not the same.

If you suspect that you are experiencing this issue, you can submit a console-repair request online. However, before you submit your request, we ask that you first try the following two steps to verify that you are indeed experiencing this issue: 

1. When you turn on the console, examine the light on the power supply. The power supply light should illuminate green even if the three lights on the Ring of Light flash red. If the power supply light is not green, please follow the steps that are listed in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base articles: 

906101 Xbox 360: The power supply light is red 906102 Xbox 360: The power supply light is orange 906103 Xbox 360: The power supply light is not illuminated 

2. Turn off the console. Wait 10 seconds, and then turn on the console again to see whether the symptom occurs again. If your console continues to display the three flashing red lights, your console may have to be repaired. For information about how to start the repair process online, please visit http://www.xbox.com/support, and then click Console Repair in the upper-right section of the Web page.
