When someone say that his/her Xbox is having 3 red lights problem, It means it needs to be repaired. If you are using Cooler than it is not a cure but a prevention. You could have used cooler before acutally having the problem just to prevent your Xbox. But now you will have to either get it repaired from Microsoft (in case your Xbox's warranty is not expired, but one thing to note is that you will have to wait for at least 3-4 weeks to get back your Xbox) or you can Fix your Xbox's 3 Flashing red lights problem yourself with the help of DIY Video guide available on Internet. You can fix yourself without any technical knowledge.

You have to take it apart, the three red rings are a sloder problem between the mother board and the processor, the "x-clamps" mnicrosoft uses to attach the cpu to the mother board are a joke, they dont provide enough clamping force. try this site, it will explain everything as i had to fdind out for my self.

Three rings are green one red on tv says error e73


Hi,

Turn on unit until the red light flashes and the error code(E 73) shows up on the screen. Next insert toothpicks in the back of the console(while unit is running) into the cooling fans, this is to suppose to overheat the console and start two red lights flashing. Turn off console when this happens(unplug all cords from console) and turn the system back on.


Thank you

HELP


will be a hardware error
will have to contact microsoft there is a temperory fix for this problem. what you need is two towels just normal bathroom towels take everything out of your xbox e.g
harddrive,controlers etc only things to leave in is the av cable and power supply as you wanna turn
on the xbox lie a towel flat on the ground and lie the xbox on its side ontop of the towel turn the
xbox on, you will see the error message and the red lights flash. wrap the towel around your xbox
covering the air vents and then the 2nd towel put over the top. leave it on in the towels for about
20 mins then after that take all the towels off turn off the console and leave to cool down for 15
mins. turn the xbox on and it should restart again fine but only lasts for a couple of days then you
have to do it again. wont fix it but will let u play while microsoft gets it.

hope this helps please rate me

regards Grant
