    Has anyone ever used a repair guide to fix the Red Ring of Death on the XBOX 360?

    I got the Red Ring of Death last week, my friend said he just fixed the RROD using a repair guide, and I suppose its guaranteed as he confirmed, but has anyone else used this repair guide before to fix the 3 red flashing lights on an XBOX.  Just wanted to get a second opinon.... Here is the guide he referred me to http://cli.gs/5Abam

    Never used this. My boyfried used to work at a game stop and he claims there is no permanent fix for it. He recommends buying a xbox that is an arcade version or newer. So sorry to hear of your trouble. We have lost 3 systems the same way sad

    I tried the repair guide that i mentioned above in the link and it fixed the red ring of death. Now my XBOX 360 is working like new again. The DIY repair took about an hour, not too hard at all.  Thanks for the answer. The repair guide basically shows you how to open your xbox and fix it yourself so that you dont get the red ring of death error.  The RROD has to do with overheating inside the console, dust build up and other matter that blocks ventilation can cause your xbox to overheat.  Again here is the guide if you want to fix your xbox 360 yourself, you can check out the link listed above the previous answer.  It will also tell you what are the primary causes of the RROD

    Yes I have tried one of these repair guides and it worked for me.  I actually have a video in my XBOX Hub that will probably help you for free though.    Also if you have the XBOX in a confined space try moving it to a place where it can get more air.  This is the usual fault with these is that they overheat due to no ventilation.

    Don't know if I am allowed to link here or not so maybe just look at my profile and you will see my xbox hub there with the video in it.

    Yeah, a lot of gamers have managed to fix the red ring of death using a repair guide. Generally most errors that modern gaming consoles such as the Xbox 360 and PS3 experience are fairly easy to fix in a "DIY" manner.

    It's a better option than paying someone else to do it, or paying Sony to fix the problem as well. Under my profile you will find a number of hubs about fixing the red ring of death, as repairing gaming consoles is what I do for a living.

    Hope this helps,

    In simple Yes,

    I have a Hub which details the guide I used to Fix my xBox 360 and other xBox 360's i've worked on. I actually am running a local Repair, and Modding service for the xBox 360's. So the guide I use and bought about a year ago has worked perfect for me in terms of showing me videos from the start to finish and giving me amazing instructions.

    It'll tell you everything you need to know and more.

    Hope this helps,
