XBox 360 Repair – Do it Yourself

Problems on the XBox 360 are indicated by 1, 2, 3, or 4 Red Lights flashing on the front of the console.

The following are the reasons and possible solutions for the different patterns of red lights…

1 Light- likely means an unknown hardware malfunction. The indicated error code may be different than the error code returned by the XBox’s main menu.

2 Lights- The Probably most common of the possible failures on the XBox 360, indicates an interface error usually caused by overheating. To fix this, first turn the XBox 360 off and unplug all cables from the console. Leave it off for at least an hour then plug everything back in. If it still continues to flash a red light then, it is possible that the problem has been due to overheating. To fix this, allow the console to cool off by turning it off for a while. Disconnect all accessories from the console and leave it off after this time.

3 Lights- The more common of the possible xBox 360 problems is indicated by 3 red lights flashing on the front of the console. The problem here is that a hardware malfunctions or some sort of software issue has occurred. The best way to fix this is to submit a repair request with Microsoft. However, be aware that your warranty only covers the red light issues, not the 3 red lights or any other errors.

4 Lights- The 4th and most dreaded of the possible xBox 360 problems is what is known as a general hardware failure or “the 3 Red Lights”. This error also indicates a possible software issue but significance of the error is currently unknown. Microsoft has offered a solution to this problem, which is shipping a new xBox 360 to all users with a red ring of death repair Me gadget. The Me gadget repairs the xBox 360 console by showing how to fix a wide variety of problems. This includes, but is not limited to, the 3 red lights, overheating, graphics errors, and more. The best part is that this is a permanent fix.

As you can see from the descriptions above, each of the possible error codes has a different meaning. The 3 lights error, for example, is often abbreviated/refered to as “the 3 Lights of Death”. Each of the error codes has a unique problem code, which is a unique way of identifying a problem with the xBox 360. It is my strong recommendation that you not only learn about the xBox 360’s 4 most common problems, but to become an xBox 360 master!

To obtain a successful and permanent repair for any of the problems noted, i Emory offers a repair request form that gets you started, and a list of the xBox 360 problems, with their corresponding code number. Each problem has a unique code, and each xBox 360 problem code is accompanied by a unique reference code.

From the reference codes, you can tell what the problems are associated with, and usually can provide a a working solution. These codes are included with the Towel method, and are available in different formats. I strongly recommend that you use the format with the most number of digits placed between the code and the problem.alling to do this…สล็อตเเว็บตรงเเตกง่าย

1. Send your xBox 360 to Microsoft

Startup your Console

2. Press and hold the INTRO button for ten seconds until you hear two distinct beeps. This indicates that the Drivers Light has been changed from Green to Red.

3. Look at the BD failures. Press and hold the power button for 20 seconds until you hear two distinct beeps. This indicates that the associatedBiB fathes are not working.

4. Press and hold the syndrome reset button for at least 20 seconds. Although this will probably solve the problem for now, there could be other issues you are facing.

5. If you are experiencing problems with DVD’s, then switch to the wardrobe. Find all of the DVD cases and games and then return them to the cases and games to reset it with new DVD’s.

If you are experiencing problems with the xBox 360 itself, then you have a few options to fix it. Since the failure is associated with overheating, you can only repair it by opening up the console. There are two main xBox 360 repair guides available on the internet. You need to find a guide that covers your specific problem, in the form of text (Tablet or PDF download) or video tutorials. The reason I am telling you to use a certain guide is that not all guides are created equal. Some of the techniques used can damage your xBox even more, I’ve tried a couple and it didn’t work so I would not recommend them. The safer option would be to get a professional DIY repair guide.
