3 Red Lights On Your Xbox 360 - Check Out These Ways On How To Fix Them (It's Easier Than You Think)

Updated on May 7, 2010

Have you ever experienced the 3 red lights on your Xbox 360? Well, you are not the only one. There are millions of Xbox users who have experienced the same thing and have seen those 3 red lights on their Xbox 360. I would like to share with you 3 ways to get your Xbox repaired and get those lights back to normal.

1) Microsoft being the manufacturer of Xbox 360 can provide a solution to this problem. You will need to send your Xbox console to Microsoft to get it fixed. However you may also have to pay $140 shipping fees. Whether you have a  warranty or not this may still be the case. Another downside about this method is that it may take Microsoft about two months to get your Xbox fixed, which will result with you being without your gaming console for quite some time.

2) You can also try visiting your local repair shop. There are already a number of shops that offer repair services for many types of gaming consoles. The charge for these local repair shops may be around $100 in cash. I guess that's still a little expensive though. It will also, probably, take a little time before they get your Xbox repaired. It could take up to 2-4 weeks before you are back gaming again.

The Best Way To Fix 3 Red Lights On Your Xbox 360

3) Your final option and the third way to get your Xbox 360 fixed, would be to turn to the internet. There are many of helpful sites and guides available online that can assist you on repairing the 3 red lights on your Xbox 360. Getting help online is probably the cheapest and the fastest way to actually solve this issue. Plus you won’t need to wait for ages for the return of your beloved console! I guees the one disadvantage of getting help online is that you need to do the work yourself! There are numerous online repeair guides that you can download immediately. I would recommend that you check if the site has a working customer service center for you to contact in case you need any further assistance or if you encounter any problems. These sites should also offer a money back guarantee if the information from their guides and their customer service center were not able to resolve your issues. Lastly, in terms of charges, you need to be aware that these online guides should not cost you more than $30 - $40. So hopefully this option is the fastest and cheapest way to fix those 3 red lights on your Xbox 360!
