As we all know the Xbox 360 has been a huge success and has brought many hours of amazing online and offline gaming to the masses. Unfortunately the Xbox 360 has one major flaw. The Ring Of Death!
Many people have spent ours on hold to Microsoft trying to get their beloved console repaired only for Microsoft to charge them a small fortune to get it repaired and sometimes having to wait weeks for the console to return! Well this problem is now a thing of the past thanks to some AMAZING do it yourself Xbox 360 Fault guides.
Gone are the days of being lost on the phone to Microsoft and waiting weeks for a return date. Now we can all sort this problem ourselves within an hour and with zero cost. Now obviously their are other faults on the Xbox and luckily for us all of these common faults can be repaired from home following some very simple instructions.
These repairs include:
** Over heating consoles
** 3 red lights
** Graphic glitches
** And 2 red lights
Now these problems have now cost Microsoft millions of dollars in returned consoles, and they will no doubt have lost a lot of very loyal customers. I really don’t understand why Microsoft put such a high charge on such simple repairs, it really is disappointing. My Xbox has suffered with the Ring Of Death twice now and both times I have been able to revive and repair my console by myself from the comfort of my own home for free.
So why do these problems occur?
Well the main reason is overheating due to a poor design with the Microsoft cooling system. So as my first tip you really shouldn’t block any of your vents surrounding your Xbox. Also don’t leave your console running for long periods of time or left on standby.
If we can just do these very simple things we will all hopefully have many fun filled years of uninterrupted playing time.
