Wrong, if it had 4 flashing red lights then it would be the video cord.
3 red flashing lights is an indication there is an error which can be read by holding the sync button and the dvd drive button at the same time. Press and release a numer of times to find code.
Probably a error code of 0102 is the most common. I can fix this for you. If interested email me at [email protected]

This means your xbox 360 is dead you cant ix it on your own you must send it away to microsoft to be repaired if it is still under warranty then it will be free but if the warranty has end then you will have to pay to have it fixed.

You have to take it apart, the three red rings are a sloder problem between the mother board and the processor, the "x-clamps" mnicrosoft uses to attach the cpu to the mother board are a joke, they dont provide enough clamping force. try this site, it will explain everything as i had to fdind out for my self.

Xbox 360 is not coming on screen just red light on console


No! Check with 800 support the warranty was extended on most xbox 360 with the 3 red lights. Ours was repaired when we thought our warranty had ended.

3 blinking redlights..just black screen


Hi,
it,s worth a look at the xbox forums on the internet regarding this.
dependant on how many red lights you have, the console has overheated. or you have a A/V output fault.
Look on the xbox 360 forums sites for further Information.

An error message comes on screen when thew xbox 360 is turned on as well as it says up the top (system error .contact xbox customer support )also three red lights flash on and off


This is either an error code or the 3 red lights of death. If it is the 3 red lights, and not an error code, you will be under the extended warranty. If it is an error code, hope u are under your origional warranty.

This may sound weird, but if you cover the entire xbox in towls, making sure to cover all the exhast vents, turn it on, then wait 10-15min; when you unrap it, turn it on again and it should start up. Keep in mind that this is usually just a temporary fix.
