3 Red Light Error
- Why did it happen?
That is the question asked more by xbox 360 gamers, than
any other. If you have owned an XBOX 360 over the last few
years, then chances are great that you have run into the
3 red light error. Some estimates have the failure rate
now at over 50%, which is just incredible.
So why does it happen?
Some people seem to think that it is an overheating
problem. And while it is triggered by an xbox that is too
hot, that is not the main cause. The XBOX 360 should not
have a 50% failure rate, no matter how long you play it.
After some research, I have found that it
was an engineering flaw in the production of the XBOX 360.
Actually it is an electrical malfunction, built right in
to the XBOX 360. It is a definite flaw, but it has an easy
fix, if you know the right steps.
How do we fix this?
Now some people have been trying what they
like to call "the towel trick". Do not Do this!!
Basically what this is, is wrapping your xbox 360 up in
a towel, turning it on for 20 minutes or so, and letting
it overheat. I know it sounds crazy right? Well it actually
works for little while, and I will tell you why. When you
wrap your xbox up in a towel and turn it on, there is no
ventilation for the heat from your CPU to escape. This basically
turns your xbox into an oven. What this does is re-melts
the solder - fixing the electrical connection, and therefore
fixing the 3 red light error.
HOWEVER - And this is a big however - this
method heats up other electrical connections all throughout
your xbox. And while this method does usually work - it
is always temporary. And will eventually permanently destroy
Is there a more permanent fix for
Yes - after much research, and by contacting
my inner circle of video game repair contacts I have found
someone who has come up with a PERMANENT fix for this. They
have already fixed hundreds of xboxes using this method,
and have put together a guide, which will show you step-by-step
how to easily do this same repair yourself. They have even
made some detailed videos showing the easy process. Thet
have made the process so easy - that they will happily give
you a complete refund, if you try the repair and it does
not work. Heck they will give you a complete refund, even
if you just look at the repair and decide you do not want
to try it.
