Tip & How-To about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

How to fix the 3 red rings

Hello there

If you need to fix this problem or any other xbox problem like open/close tray error, disk read error, 2 lights error, all error messages, no display and son, if you want to fix this your self and save loads of cash on the way then you need a Good Xbox repair guide,

The Problem is caused by over heating and this causes the GPU and the CPU to lose connection with the motherboard, The heat actually melts the soldering that connects the chips to the motherboard.

The best advice i can give is as i say a really good xbox repair guide.

i use this website here to keep me updated with the best ones www.dr-xbox.tk

Hello, well rather than type out and try to explain the whole process, i will direct you to here and here. So much easier to "see" it than "read" it. The first link is for a tray that won't open. The second link is if the system actually says that it's reading the disk and the displays "tray open" message error. Both are common and very annoying. I have fixed many using both methods. If anyone is unfamiliar with how to open your xbox 360, you can watch how here. I hope this helps.

Xbox 360 disk tray wont stay shut


My 360 is/was having a similar problem...my 360 would say "reading disc" then "open tray". Well since my system is only about 8 months old...I opted to send it in for repair. Its under warranty. My system is in route to be fixed as we speak. I would advise you to get yours registered too.

xbox 360 open tray error


How I worked around the "Open Tray" problem, where the game discs were not being recognized:

1. Open tray
2. Unplug power cable while tray is open
3. Plug in power cable
4. Power on console - tray closes
5. Open tray
6. Insert disc
7. Try your game

Good luck! Source: Someone else mentioned this in a forum somewhere, however I don't recall who it was or which forum. I'm just trying to get the word out so people don't send in their XBOX for repair, or open the case and void the warranty if this workaround resolves the problem.
