Hi, you mention you can hear the sound but get no picture then this could mean you need a new video lead so i would try this first see if a friend has one you can try also try unplugging yours and plugging it back in doing this will sometimes get it working, make sure you push it in hard enough.

the reason the wont do the repair for the 3rd time is due to the stress placed on the cpu and gpu chip by removing and refitting the heat sink, doing this pushes the chips onto the circuit board and this is how it solves the problem the first 2 times but as its failed again this points towards the solder coming away again from the circuit board and even doing the mod and letting it over heat before putting it back together probably wont seal it again so you would just be wasting money paying for the repair.

I do a lot of these repairs for customers and family and most have had no problems with it failing again after this repair and some are still going after 3 years so the repair does work but doing it 3 times would just be to much for the cpu and gpu to cope with and it would not last long even if it did work.

are you in the UK or USA let me know.

you may be able to sell the xbox for parts but thats about as much as you can do, you could put it in the well known auction site but after telling people the repair has been done twice then the chances are it wouldnt sell.

let me know what you would like to do.

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts thanks

Is your xbox 360 gone when it blinks 3 times red


No, 3 red light means that your GPU Chip has gotten separated from the motherboard, you can either send it for repair through xbox.com or look for a local repair shop that repairs xbox consoles.

Thanks

I CAN FIX IT! There are links that show you how to repair this issue yourself (but they are not very clear and every thing is very fragile inside the XBOX 360) or you can contact me via reply on here and we can discuss the issue further as I recently repaired my XBOX 360 with the same issues and it works better than when was brand new.

Red lights flashing


3 Red Flashing lights problem is one of the most common problem of Xbox 360. 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.

RED lights flashing


This is going to sound like a very strange solution, but it worked for me, twice. My xbox 360 gave me the red ring of death once, and in my despair I asked a few friends about anything they can think of, and one suggested letting it run for 10 minutes while wrapped in a towel, or blanket. By that point I was desperate enough to try it (I had bought a refurbished one, so it wasn't under warranty anymore), and lo and behold, my xbox 360 is as good as new. Basically what you're doing is shocking the system into working via overheating... I know that doesn't make much sense, but, like I said before, it worked twice for me. Hope this helps!
