    The 4th one is having issues with the disk drive getting stuck....

    Well, if it's the power adapter you should know. I replaced mine and all was fine for a while. On another one it was the videocard that eventually gave out but I knew because of the screen starting to flicked and fade.

    Try this:

    Sections 1, 3, and 4 are flashing red
    General Hardware Failure

    The specific type of hardware failure can be determined by a "hidden" error code
    Turn the Xbox 360 on, and wait till the 3 red lights are flashing.
    Press and hold the sync up button (the small white one), while holding that button press the eject button.
    The LED's will now blink the first number in the code (as described below).
    Release the eject button and press it again.
    The LED's will now blink the second number of the code.
    Release the eject button and press it again.
    The LED's will now blink the third number of the code.
    Release the eject button and press it again.
    The LED's will now blink the forth number of the code.
    Release the eject button and press it again.
    The LED's will go back to the 3 red flashing lights.
    You should be able to determine the difference between the 3 flashing lights and the error code lights by the rate in which they flash.

    Here is how you interpret the LED's to get the code number:
    All four lights flashing - 0
    One light flashing - 1
    Two Lights flashing - 2
    Three lights flashing - 3
    0001 power supply problem
    0002 power supply problem
    ...
    0010 over heating
    0011 over heating
    0012 over heating
    0013 over heating
    ...
    0020 (Not yet known, possibly overheating)
    ...
    0022 GPU Error / GPU Overheating
    ...
    0102 unknown error - literally means the console does not know what is wrong. possibly a short or cold solder joint somewhere (2 reports of people repairing this, one was removing moisture build up inside the console, the other used a hot-air rework to reflow the BGA Ram chips)
    ...
    0110 (Not yet known)
    ...
    1022 (Not yet known)

    well it's showing 0102... so "unknown error" could it be the heatsink? or solder joints?

    ^if you like fail.

    RROD is an easy fix depending on what the issue is. I've fixed a few myself - however, they were all 3 RRODs and 1 with 2 RRODs (over heating).

    Get the kit online, open up the 360, follow instructions pretty simple if you're somewhat tech savvy. If you don't have the patience, sell it on craigs or find someone on craigs to fix it for you, they usually charge like $50 or so...

    Uknown error.... don't know how to help. My best advice is to send it to MS unless you want to buy a new one.

    I sent my 360 power supply to MS to get replaced and never got it back though.... got sick of waiting and went and bought a new 360.

    Maybe it's time to get back into PC gaming?

    For me it was a) thermal paste melting off and b) motherboard flex because of the X-clamps.

    my friend's was over heating, so I applied some thermal paste with the washer kit, screwed it down, and it worked.

    You can either send it back for repair or blow it up like FPS Russia
