Mar 1, 2008
Do you own some hardware? Then you are sure to know that breakdowns are quite common and it usually happens when you are deeply immersed in the middle of something. Just a the PC has the infamous 'Blue Screen of Death' in the same way the Xbox 360 has the great '3 Red Rings of Death'.

If any problem occurs to your console then there is nothing to worry about it. In almost all cases the 3 Red Light errors can be fixed on your Xbox, but there are few problems that can not be solved by you. You can try these tips if any problem occurs.

1. First you need to check out that your console got heated or not, if heated then switch off the power and unplug the Xbox 360.Take the console to the open area to cool down and then connect. And in future see that you console has proper ventilation while using, it is always good to place the console in open area. The vent of the console should never be next to the wall because this prevents the console from heat by circulating in and around it and thus cooling its components.

2. After the Xbox has been unplugged for cooling take either a blower of the vacuum cleaner or a hair dryer with cold blower option and blow the dust trapped within the console. The dust can also cause over-heating. And at all times remember never to blow hot air into the console.

After the console get completely cooled down plug it back and check it out for 3 Red Light errors. If once the error disappeared then you need to think over it and make the decision. If the warranty of your console still exists then you can send for the repair or for the replacement. And also remember that once it is sent to the warranty center it would take at least one or two months to return.

Another option is also available to this problem, you can repair it yourself. There are some guides that really help you step by step to overcome from the problem of 3 Red Light errors. And it is the excellent option if the warranty of the console has expired or if you can't wait for two months.

If you don't want to send the console to the warranty center even though it was under warranty period, then you can repair it yourself. But it's all up to you since opening the console while it is in warranty period may cancels the warranty. But solving this error is simple and easy. And there is a possibility that without opening your console can repair your console, by doing this your console gets repaired and at the same time your warranty is safe.
