Yes over heating best to go microsoft care point or support online at x-box site and see what your nearest service point. -my self ,i use to fix two fans one to increase the cooling system and one to brought out the heat, all most the solution care about increase the cooling factor, but they always ignoring that the heat should be go out. by this you can play most of games and operate your x-box as long you want . -some of x-box board components might affected by been heated and cooling in normal operating so this case you should reflow the GPU and CPU. Nothing safe than use jovy RE-7500 to make this process .

My 360 has 3 rings the rings are red and it wont turn on


Hello,

The three red lights mean that your XBOX360 is experiencing hardware failure. This is caused by overheating of your XBOX. Contact Microsoft and have them fix the problem. They have given free extended warranty for three red light problems. If you have bought your xbox360 within 3 years, you're in luck.. They will fix your console for free...

My xbox 360 freezes after being on for a couple of minutes. How do i stop this


If it freezes and then the next time you turn it on has red lights on the console display check out the corresponding Microsoft articles for the number of red rings on the display. They appear in quadrants on it.
1 red ring
2 red rings
3 red rings
4 red rings

If you do not have any rings, your console may just be overheating. Give it a while to cool down and if that doesn't work, give Microsoft a call: 1-800-4MYXBOX. Good Luck!

The screen has frozen and gone snowy, no red lights on the consol


Even though it is not showing the ring of death, it is in fact the ring of death.
The GPU is overheating and can be fixed the same way as the ring of death.
I suggest getting a repair kit from ebay, or other retailer. DO NOT try the towel fix, it will only further harm your unit.

Rings of death


the "3 rings of death" or the so called "3 red lights" is actually caused by GPU overheating and mainboard flexing. When you need to do is open your xbox360 (warning, this will void your warranty) add more cooling fan inside your xbox360, you'd want to use 80mm fans coz they fit perfectly. you can fit up to two 80mm fans inside your xbox360.

Also, if you notice that your xbox360's mainboard is warped you need to fix this by disconnecting all the connections from the board. then place the board on a flat surface. then use a hair drier to heat the board and flat it out. its kinda complicated. hehe, at least you now have an idea on whats causing the 3 red lights...

If you only have two red lights that means your xbox is overheated I had this trouble and took mine out to the air compresser and blew massive dust out of it,It's been 2 months now no lights.

3 red lights on xbox360 and screen problems


Hi there!

The three flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with your Xbox 360 console. The main thing that causes the 3 red lights to start flashing is because of overheating and as the motherboard within the console takes more heat it actually warps and bends until the solders become loose.

Once this happens you will receive the 3 red lights. Even before you get the 3 red lights you may have noticed your games freezing and this is caused in the same way, by overheating. As the chips take more heat they shut off to prevent lasting damage, although they can only do this a number of times until you get the Xbox 360 3 Red Lights.

To fix the problem you need to stop the level of heat the motherboard takes and you can do this in a number of ways, but it will involve opening up your Xbox and working on it. In addition, you could always send your Xbox back to Microsoft as they are offering free repair for this error, you will just need to wait 3-4 weeks that’s all.

Cheers!
