3 Flashing red lights - green light on power adapter?

When I try to start up my xbox 360, it flashes three red lights around the center, and the power adapter light is green. The troubleshooting guide says to request a repair, however, when I tried to request a repair, I was told to register the console. When I registered the console, it said that Microsoft won't do out-of-warranty repairs on the 360, and sent me to the forums. 

At this point since the warranty has been expired for so long, I figure that I might as well just open her up myself because I'm pretty good at electronics repairs. But is there some kind of diagnostic tool I could download first to figure out what's going on easily, or if not, does anyone have any experience fixing this?

Sorry to hear it.  Unfortunately the old FAT consoles are no longer being serviced due to the extreme age of the consoles.

Also, we will not be able to assist you further other than suggesting purchasing a newer console as discussion of self repair is strictly forbidden on these forums.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
