Microsoft have a recall and repair for 'red ring of death' gpu overheating failure
the phone number is on xbox live & ms web sites
1-800 4 my xbox
do not open the case, MS will say that is the cause of the failure and void warranty.
MS will send purolator shipper to collect the xbox and return it repaired.
Dont hope for much many have been repaired for this failure more than once
well you can call the xbox assitance and they will tell you to put in the xbox serial number, your state, adress, etc. you have the 3 rings of death, so what they will do they will send you a box for you to put your xbox and send it back to get it fixed, this only works if you have the 1 year warranty, if you do they will fix it for free, if you dont you have to pay, but its worth it.
When someone say that his/her Xbox is having 3 red lights Flashing 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 don't need any money mate. Microsoft recently extended their warranty to 3 years for the three red lights problem. all you have to do is get in touch with microsoft and tell them about the three red lights, and they should either repair your X Box or they will replace it with a new one.
Good luck mate
