    If your 360 is out of warranty, try the "Towel Trick":

    Oh, dude. it is fairly like the widest everyday errors for an X360. you basically have been given the three crimson dots of loss of existence. this means that your xbox has an inner virus, and it rather is an exceedingly trouble-free component to take place in an Xbox 360. you will could deliver it everywhere you acquire it or to microsoft or some thing and get a sparkling refurbished one. God, yet another broken Xbox 360?

    Three Red Lights.

    System Hardware Failure.

    Check the power supply and make sure it's GREEN when on.

    plug DIRECTLY into the wall.

    REMOVE any intercoolers you may have,

    these do not apply to you, then yea... you will have to pay 139.90USD if you're Out of Warranty and they ship out a box to you. Something internal needs to get fixed, which you cannot go inside and do because it will void it.

    Freezing (with no error msg) is just the first stage of 3 red lights.

    You got the ring of death man. Sorry.

    call them up (you can get the number from xBox.com) and they should replace it for you, unless it's way past it's warranty.

    Never hurts to call though, maybe they'll be able to fix it for you.

    It means you're ******. Your 360 is broken and you aren't fixing it until you send it in for repairs or exchange or whatever.
