Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Xbox 360 red ring of death

Are the repair guides advertised to fix this problem REALLY easy enough for dummies to use? Or am I better off sending my son's 360 in to an online repair service? Absolutely no one in our area will work on them.

The sellers of these guides are just greedy people trying to make a quick buck. Repairing a 360 console is not for a total novice at even open the case requires a certain tool, research and patience. In the wrong hands it's easy to cause perm damage to the 360 motherboard. Repairers like myself prefer to work on unopened consoles and to be able to conduct repairs properly, without having to inform the owner that because of careless tampering they will need a new 360.
Also I have been doing repairs on ebay for ~6months and I am still fine tuning and improving my repair methods, Be aware that 3 red rings is merely the error reporting mechanism as there are ~12 secondary (actual) errors that can cause the feared red rings of death.

Send it to a repairer who has experience and can prove customer satisfaction and your console will be in good hands. If you are in Aus look me up on Ebay - 1badgringo
