I had the same problem. I used our RRoD kit and it did not fix the problem, so I used the [http://www.engadget.com/2007/01/15/towel-trick-provides-temporary-fix-to-xbox-360s-red-ring-of-d/|towel trick] and it has been working for me.
 
Also, I have heard you can use a heat gun to fix the problem. You can do a Google search and find guides posted by different people using this method.
 
There is danger of further damaging your 360 with the above two options, but I figured my 360 was already broken so why not try something I would not have to pay money for.
 
The last option would be sending your 360's logic board away to a repair shop to get re-flowed.
 
Hope that helps!

In my case installing games to the hard drive helped this problem. I don't know if the vibration from the optical drive was causing the system to error, but now that I have the game installed the system runs without a problem.
