    I tried the power supply on a different outlet in my room and downstairs, but I get the same 3 red flashing lights and power supply light is orange. Is this a power supply problem or is my 360 dead? I've had this 360 for 4-6 years now.

    What you're describing is typically referred to as the "Red Ring of Death" (RRoD). You're probably past the manufacture warranty, even with the extended coverage proved specifically for RRoD issues, so you'll likely have to pay for any repairs.

    In other words, it was time for an upgrade anyhow.

    if your box goes RROD, the PSU should turn to green. At least mine does.

    basically RROD = "Hey user, this xbox detect problem".
    you need to read the Error Code to know what your xbox is saying in detail (its veeeery detail and can specify the problem on CPU, RAM, heat, PSU, etc).

    to read the Error Code...
    i forgot. let me google a bit.

    EDIT:
    here it is

    https://xbox-experts.com/errorcodes.php

    it may be hard to do (and read) the secondary error code in 1st try but its easy after you get the hang of it. The detailed database of explanation for every codes also awesome.
