    try unplugging the system, and the hard drive from the main console. Then plug it all back up and start it.

    Also just so i know. Did you get YOUR console back? Do you know the serial number where you can check and make 100% sure they did not swap yours out for some console that they did a quick fix on (aka the toweks trick).

    The 3 red lights are refered as the red ring of deathh, RROD, as well as other things. It is the reaosn that Microsoft extended their warranty, it is a fault in the system hardware that causes 360's to break. It happens to both modded and unmodded systems on a frequent basis, whic is why they have been upgrading the systems recently. Its a a pretty big problem, has happned to three of my systems, only 2 were modded. Since your warranty is void because you got it modded, you cna look into having it fixed. Their are tuts on how to do it yourself, and also people on eBay (check feedback) who specialize in fixing this, and it costs less then a system. Some local electronics shops may be able to help you fix it as well.
