Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Red lights I have been experiencing some freezing, constant reebooting, and red lights for the past 2 days. Yesterday it only froze up every hour or so, then it got red lights. It worked for about 2 seconds today before it froze and upon rebooting, it got red lights. To describe it, i will use a box. I I <----------If these were the lights on the system, this one is not lighting I I up, whereas the other are glowing red. Don't want to send it back because I'd have to wait. If need be I will send it but I want to avoid it. Before i call support if you can help in any way that would be great. Master Cheif misses me :)

Hang in their friend - fate has been very unkind to you lately, but the PS3 is really a great system - I've had mine for a few years now with no trouble. Also, from a pure probability standpoint, the XBox 360 has even higher rates of broken hardware - Microsoft has spent billions of dollars combating the red ring of death. Especially after investing so much money in games, I would stick it out with Sony on this one. Sorry your luck has been so terrible!

Xbox 360 is freezing with no red rings and an intercooler?

The freeze ups normally happen before the red lights of doom and they are caused by the GPU and the CPU getting too hot and the soldering snaps off so they lose connection.

If you stop the heat build up you will be fine.

You can do this yourself using a good repair guide or you can send it in and they will fix it for you.

As long as you stop most of the heat getting to the GPU and the CPU you will be fine.

The system froze while playing a game, and now

If your PS3 is freezing up then this happens in much the same way as the 3 red lights on the Xbox 360.

The GPU and the CPU heat up and you need to stop the heat to fix it.

You can send it in and pay $130 to get it fixed or you can use the recommended PS3 Repair guide that will have it fixed for you in under an hour!
