    I turned my 360 on about 20 mins ago, and all the quads lit up red apart from the upper right one.

    I turned my 360 off and then back on, and all is running normally again. However this is not first time it's done this, it did it on launch day as well, the first time I set it up. I turned it off on launch day and checked everything was in securely and put it back on.

    What do the 3 red lights of death mean?

    It means a hardware fault, was it on PGR3?
    I have had it about 4 times but only on PGR3,I have had mine since launch.

    i think the name '3 lights of death' is a hint.;)

    just make sure everything is plugged in correctly. then trying playing for a while to see if it acts normally

    It's never happened during gameplay or whilst the console is on at all. It has only happened when I first turn the console on, it never actually loads up though; i just get the red lights. Then power it off and back on.
