Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Hi,If you are currently experiencing the Xbox 360 3 Red Lights error, more than 30% of all Xbox 360 consoles have been or will be affected by this error, which occurs due to hardware and heating problems. Sometimes the excessive heat will cause the soldering to become loose. This affects the graphical processor and can lead to major hardware damage. The 3 Red Light error is an indication that there is probably a fault in the cooling system. You can add an additional inter cooler and remove the X clamps.
If this doesn't work you can send your Xbox 360 to the Microsoft service center: this is a good solution only if your console is still under warranty, because if it's not Microsoft will charge you $140 plus shipping to make the repair. If your warranty hasn't expired then you can have your gaming system repaired for free. The only downside is that you might have to wait 4-12 weeks to get it back.If you try to fix it by yourself, the first thing you need to do is to switch off your Xbox immediately. Excessive heat is what caused the problem, so you need to bring the temperature down quickly. Allow you system to cool down for a few minutes and then restart it. Please avoid using dangerous methods such as the "bath towel technique". The idea behind it is that wrapping your console with a bath towel will heat it even more and realign the soldier joints of the motherboard that have become loose. This won't work because to fix this problem you will need to reduce the temperature and not to increase it..
