Red lights flahing on xbox, has been fixed before had to send away...any easier solution?

Lot of people try the blanket trick or towel trick, they wrap the thing in a towel to purposly overheat the thing to make it work. There is no easyness to this issue if the unit is having this overheating problem and you sent it away chances are you did not get a good repair, allow me to give you a reference they will repair it and garentee it for 90 days or more if the unit fails they will help you.

Sorry I wish there was a easier solution to this issue but honestly there is not. Please do be considerate even know it seems like this was not of help rate it based on other avenues, thanks

3 red lights.

I would not reccommend that you try it, as it does not work usuaully, in rare cases when it does it does not completely fix your console. Hope this was helpful, what is your problem? If it is the three red lights. i wouold get in touch with microsoft as they have extended their warranty to three years for the three red lights problem, and they will either repair or replace your console.
Good Luck
Mick (please rate if helpful)
