When someone say that his/her Xbox is having 3 red lights 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.

There's a quick solution on fixya to solving the 3 flashing red lights problem

Posted on Jul 13, 2008


I have seen a video on youtube for a temp fix for the red ring. wrap your console in towels and turn it on making sure that the cooling vents are covered and wait about 10-15 mins. then it should work after that. The main problem with the red ring is that the GPU heats up and a bit of solider falls off briging a connection with something it shouldnt. by doing this the solider should move away and you should be fine. if not you couldnt of done any mor damage than not trying this.

Also my xbox 360 is not reading games/dvds too well, i have snt mine off to get fixed. The only other time i have had a problem with my xbox is when i had to send my power supply away cause i dropped it and knocked something loose and it was making a funny noise. Thankfully, i live in Australia, both times they gave me a replyed paid address (my friend too) and shipped it out free of charge. Im guessing thats not the case in other countries. oh well, sucks to be you :P
