Hubby says it may be that your cd drive has gone. He says there is a point along the disc drawer where you can put something flat like a pin in it and pull it out. He said if you look in your manual it will tell you exactly what 2 red lights mean but he is pretty sure thats what it is :)

its overheated mate and its knackered
#4
you can still get game out switch it on and hold eject in straight away tray will open

out of warranty i think for other stuff. Cud change drive yourself, not that hard, there are guides about how to get it done. You will need to change a pcb over on the drive with your old one as I think they are coded.
#11
cost? can i not try and change it? as it works but starts to get loud then comes on
#12
its not the drive its cutting out to stop it oveheating take it apart and clear all the dust this will help
#13

had same prob 2 months ago took it apart cleaned all the dust and its still going strong

though it could need paste repaired

it is a real rip off sending them off to microsoft if you are out of warranty, i had a disk tray problem which stopped it from opening and they quoted me £100, i opened the disk tray and fixed it myself for free and the best thing is im still in warranty for 3 red lights as i didnt open the xbox :)
#16
so no other way only opening it
i dont real want to mess with it etc
#17
Try taking a hoover to the vents and vacuum it to try and get as much dust out as possible.

thanks

I had the exact same problem and told Microsoft it was 3 red lights. They replaced the drive and sent it back to me, free of charge. (They even sent a letter, detailing a problem with the drive)

Give it a bash. Phone them up and just say its 3.
