Red light on Xbox 360 S console

Hi there

My son was playing on the Xbox yesterday and he left it on for a few hours.  When he went back to it and resumed his game the unit shut down after about 20 minutes.  Now when we turn the unit on the green light comes on but then about 10 seconds later the light turns red (not flashing) and that is it.  I have checked the power cord and the light is green when the unit is on but then turns orange when the red light comes on the console.  All the cables are plugged in correctly and we have taken the hard drive out and put it back in etc.

Does the unit need to be taken in for repair ?

3 rings is a general system failure. Try using the system standing up, and make sure all the cords are properly seated. If it still red rings, you will have to send it in for repair.
