    Everytime i hit the power button on my xbox 360
    It'll Start To Come On for about half a second
    then the Red Lights Pop On
    (Cant Remember How Many Or Which Red Lights But More Then 1 )
    Like The Red Lights Come on damn near directly after you press the power button, the xbox screen doesnt even get to pop up
    Please Please Somebody Help Me :confused:cared:

    Or it might be 2 lights which is overheating, and for that just leave it for a half hour or so to cool down

    Red ring of death.

    Call up microsoft

    1-800-4-my-xbox and they will go through all these steps to make sure you have the ring of death. Then they will send you a box in the mail. Put your 360 in the box (take off the hard drive) and wait 2 to 4 weeks for you to get it back.:thumbdown:

    Yes it sounds like you have the 3 Red Rings of Death

    As long as your 360 was made within 3 years ago, you will be covered under warranty. Follow the steps bradenriver provided and you'll be fixed up in no time.

    And FYI...the turnaround time is more like 2 weeks
