How to Repair Xbox 360 Using the 3 Red Light Fix - GameReviewStop


You have an extensive game lineup and with a group of friends, and you’ve planned an all day gaming session. Deep in the middle of some serious action while playing Call of Duty, you notice over by the power button three lights start flashing red instead of green. You’ve just been hit with the red ring of death, a malfunction that causes a lethal error in your XBox 360. Game over.

What does it mean when you get the red ring of death? It means that something went wrong inside the console and until you get it fixed, all that your console is good for is as an expensive paperweight.

To understand what happened, you need to know what’s going on inside the machine. A lot of power is needed in the video game console to be able to handle those action games so let’s break it open and take a look at what kind of equipment is used to bring you the hours of play. Or for hard core gamers, the days of game play.

The XBox 360 is built somewhat like your PC – even complete with a motherboard just like a computer. That’s one of the reasons why it’s so expensive – it has all of that hardware inside.

So when a malfunction occurs, you can bet it’s both time consuming and expensive to repair. You certainly don’t want to toss the machine in the garbage and go buy another one. That’s not an option for many of us.

You could send it off to be repaired. And wait. And wait. And wait awhile longer for it to get shipped back to you. Even if it’s covered by warranty (not if you take a look inside, though – that automatically nullifies the warranty) you’ll still pay a hefty amount in shipping fees.

Plus, you’d have to pay to insure it because you wouldn’t want it to get lost or damaged even more in transit. If you’re like most consumers, you already know that repair shops and repair centers don’t work for you. They work for the manufacturer. They’ll get your XBox360 repaired when they get around to it. If that’s thirty days down the road, or sixty days down the road, it’s okay by them. They’re not the ones going through game withdrawal.

If you’re thinking that sending your Xbox 360 off to be repaired is your only option when it breaks down, you’re wrong. It doesn’t have to be. You’re intelligent enough to fix your machine yourself and you can get it done in less time than it would take you to box it up, head to the post office and ship it out to be fixed.

With the 3 Red Light Fix Repair Guide, you can have your XBox 360 back up and running in sixty minutes or less. Following the guide and videos is so easy, you’ll be amazed that anyone would even consider sending one off to be repaired.
