I’m sure by now if you are an Xbox 360 owner that you would have heard or read about the dreaded Red Rings of Death. This specifically relates to the rings around the main power light at the front of your Xbox 360 console (there are 4 sections around the main light) but the 3 red rings of death is not the only error that you can get.

You can also have 1 red light show up which in general means that you are having a general hardware failure. Another error is two red rings of death which means that your Xbox is overheating and you need to quickly do something about it i.e. turn it off immediately. Then there are the dreaded 3 Red Rings of Death which is caused by overheating and the CPU becoming loose. This can often be fixed with thermal paste. 4 Red Rings mean that your AV cable is loose so luckily it’s not a complicated fix.

However the 3 Red Rings of Death is considered to be the most troublesome problem. Microsoft have spent millions repair consoles that fell victim to this problem. If you were one of the lucky ones your warranty was still valid when you fell victim to this but unfortunately there were thousands of gamers who met this problem after their warranty had expired.

Their only hope was to fork up with $200 and send it back to Microsoft, wait a few weeks then get their repaired console back and hope it doesn’t happen again.

Luckily there were a few bright sparks out there that thought this was crap and so they began investigating the Red Rings of Death to really find out how to fix the problem themselves, and they did just that.

So now there is another option for those of you who don’t want to spend $200 to get your console fixed. You can purchase a guide which shows you step by step how you can fix the problem yourself. Often many of these guides come with very detailed videos so you can follow along step by step.
