No doubt you are reading this article because you want to fix the 3 red lights problem on your Xbox 360. You have been searching all over the internet for different information and I am here to give you some tips that will help you with this problem. First of all, make sure that you do not move the Xbox when it is having a problem to prevent the system from overheating. It is also a good idea to make sure that your room is dust-free, once again this is to prevent the system from overheating. If you keep your Xbox in a media center, make sure that you keep it as dust-free as possible, a little dust can throw off the specs, and when the system starts having problems it can suck in dust and end up damaging the hard drive.
If you are still in the 3 red lights stage then your biggest problem is the fact that you really do not know how to fix your Xbox.

What you have been told so far is that you should send it to Microsoft and have it fixed and here is the information that you can use to help with that decision.
If you are sending it into Microsoft then you will be facing a wait of up to 6 weeks and then on top of that you will have to pay them $140 for the fix and then on top of that if they are not confident in fixing the system then they will send it back and you have to wait again. This is the reason why so many people are not again taking the leap and sending in their 360s to Microsoft.
Luckily there is now a simple way to fix your Xbox and it will only cost you a fraction of what Microsoft would charge. The fix only takes a few simple steps and then you will be ready to go online and play your 360 games or go on Xbox Live and still have your system’s memory.
To make the small investment of $30 or less than that you can purchase a self-repair guide for about $30. These guides are very simple to use and all you have to do is follow the steps. Then after you make the small investment you will be up and running in no time.
