If you are even reading this then you have fallen in love with the Xbox 360 and you certainly are not alone. This is why it is probably important to you to fix the error that is taking place with your game console. The thing is, no matter how irritating or frustrating it may be, it is good that the red light error is so common. This is because, you will find that it is rather simple to learn how to repair Xbox 360.
Since there are a few different things that could be wrong with your Xbox 360, it is wise to make sure that you know as much about the common error problems as possible. The more you know, the easier it will be to fix the problems. By problems, I mean that you can pretty much count on having the red light problem again at some point in time
Believe it or not, one of the main reasons you get the red light error is because of excess heat. Basically, the extra heat is causing your motherboard to become flexible, which is not something that you want to happen. There is a simple way to fix this, even though some people want you to believe that it is a terrible pain.
One of the simple but temporary fix for red light error is to wrap your Xbox with a towel, for sometime before switching it on again. When I tried it for the first time, I couldn’t believe that, it actually worked. My Xbox started working again. Can repairing my Xbox 360 be this simple?
Yes and no….
Yes, it fixes your Xbox for now, but it’s not a long-term solution. After sometime, Xbox will be down again. So, the real solution is to fix the problem inside the Xbox. It can be either done by sending it to Microsoft or by fixing it yourself.
One disadvantage of sending it to Microsoft is the fees associated with it and a wait time of more than a month. You will have to part with your Xbox for a month… I don’t know about you, but I cannot do that.
For me the best solution was to learn the intricacies of Xbox, so that I can fix it today by myself and also fix it any other time, if the problem re-appears again. But, you would need some professional guide to help you in learning about « how to repair Xbox 360 ». There are many guides found online, but there are only a few which really deliver.
