You can change the fan if you want, there are a lot of modders out there changing the fans of their xbox.

My xbox fans spin really fast and the xbopx works fine but the ans go normal the go really fast and stop again please tell me how to fix it thats my only problem


the fans in the 360 respond to how hot the console is getting and thus how much cooling is required. Try standing your console up, it helps to disappate the heat much better.

Games wont load, dvd's work fine, detects normal xbox games fine, 360 games just come up with the "insert disc into 360 console screen." advice on how to fix?


If you have this error it is because the sensors on the back of the DVD drive have heat up. You need to stop the heat.

You can do this by sending it in or if you want a quick fix today you should use a good Xbox 360 Repair guide

Hey i have 2 red lights on my xbox 360 on the left side can u help


The unit is over heating , if the fan quickly goes
to full speed you have an air gap in the C.P.U. heat sink
The fix is to re-seat the heat sink to the chip . This is done
by applying even pressure on the heat-sink and turning it on
to see if you have good contact. and repeat till the fan speed
drops .

If you have any questions just comment and ill respond.

Xbox 360 has sound but no video - how do I fix this? thanks


If your Xbox 360 does not have display you need to stop the heat getting to the chips. You can actually do this yourself as many have in this forum using the recommended Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Basically the guide will show you how to stop the heat build up with videos and household items, of course if you are in doubt send it in.

It has a preview video on the website.

Or of course you can send it in to have it fixed.

Stop the heat on the display chip and you will be fine.

3 red lights flashingand xbox doesn't turn on


The Xbox console is overheated.
  1. Let your Xbox 360 console cool. You may have to wait several hours for your console to cool enough. Don't turn on your Xbox 360 console when the console is hot.
  2. Verify that your Xbox 360 console has enough ventilation and that the fans are operating.
  3. If the lights continue to flash red after you try steps 1 and 2, contact Xbox Customer Support.
To try to prevent this problem, follow these precautions:
  • Don't block any ventilation openings on your Xbox 360 console.
  • Don't put your Xbox 360 console on a bed, on a sofa, on a carpet floor, or on any other soft surface that may block ventilation openings.
  • Don't put your Xbox 360 console in a confined space, such as a bookcase, a rack, or a stereo cabinet, unless the space is well ventilated.
  • Don't put your Xbox 360 console near any heat source, such as a radiator, a heat register, a stove, or an amplifier.

Xbox 360 Error Code 0021


So, you took apart the Xbox 360?

The Xbox 360 has serious cooling problems; compressed air usually does wonders for the Xbox.

You'll "brick" your Xbox tampering with the fan and heat sink; soft mods are always a bad idea if you don't have any recourse for fixing the system.

Hard Mods/Mod Chips are the best way to go because you have dual boot capabilities; you can boot to the original Xbox OS or the Mod Chip firmware.

Currently, Microsoft is being sued for the number of Xbox 360 consoles experiencing the "Red Rings of Death."

Microsoft is making amends by fixing the Xbox 360 at no charge.

Taking the Xbox apart yourself may void your warranty; you might start by uses an Ohm Meter to check the heat sink and fan connections.

Also make sure there is not a gap between the heat sink and the processor; this space should be filled with the thermal compound.

Furthermore, the fan might be damaged and not reporting the fan speed through the variable resistance wire; only way to determine this is by powering the fan with +5v / -5v and checking the variable resistance wire with an Ohm meter.
