You should be fine.

What quadrants are the red lights?


Most likely scenario:

You just need to restart it

You may need a new power pack.

when that happens try taking out the AC power supply and plugging it back in...if that doesn't work, you may be out of luck

They mean error. Depending on what quadrant are lit, the error can be severe or not at all.

WTF I paid for mine... hopefully they extended me on top of what I paid for. I had to send mine in once for replacement and they let me know it was an option so I did it. The one I got back runs like ****. Freezes all the time. I just don't feel like going through the hassle of waiting over a month to get it back...

My brother works at Circuit City and I've tried and tried and tried to see if he can somehow swap mine out with another brand new haha...

*** UPDATE *** Microsoft has a new free warranty of 3 years for the 3 red light error. If you have this problem, send your console in for free repair.

You've had it for 2 years? Send it in.

IT'S ONLY 3 LIGHTS! It is not dead most likely.

And yes, the warranty would be on top of the one you bought.

Xbox 360 came out November 2005. They extended the warranty for the "Red Ring of Death" to 3 years but only for that problem. So everyone is still under warranty for that specific problem.

the warranty i think is 3 years because they had so many problems. I had the 3 red rings once, and had to send it in. Then i've had other problems. Rediculous. But with the 3 red rings just call 1-800-4my-xbox and tell them the problem, they will send u a box, then u ship it away. May take a week, maybe 2.

I had the same thing happen to mine just call up tech support and tell them and they send you a box to ship it to them with. It's free so it's all good.

Totally. The PS3's crappy gameplay and ridiculous price in return for slightly better graphics is totally worth it.

Try all the things mentioned, and if it doesn't work, send it in to Microsoft, and they fix it for free.

Red Rings Of Death!!!

And a personal recommendation would be to call xbox support to get the box sent to you, then do the towel trick, as your xbox will then last about as long as it takes to get the box (which is around 5 days) to help heal some of the wounds caused by your misfortune.

Apparently I was incorrect, so I apologize.Hey, nobody's perfect, now come back to bed.

LOL you have already been scammed my friend. Best buy will do anything, anything to get out of paying out on a warranty they sell you. You won't even get your product fixed without a lawyer.
