Should I Send My Xbox to a Repair Center, Or Learn How to Fix an Xbox 360 Myself?

If you’re reading this, then you probably are going through what I remember going through just a few short months ago. You’re probably cursing at your unit, (remember, it can’t hear you), and wondering; should I throw this thing away, or send it to an Xbox repair center. Well, I can tell you that you don’t need to do either.

First lets talk about the main problems that occur which constitute ninety per cent of all major problems to Xbox 360 units.

1.- First there is the problem of overheating. This is caused by there not being enough air circulating through the unit. This may or may not cause your unit to shut down, though, eventually it will shut down.

2.- There’s also a problem of disc errors. It could be that the disc is not being detected by the DVD drive, or the disc is unreadable altogether, or the DVD tray will not open or close.

3.- The worst of these problems is the three red lights around the power button, which indicates a severe hardware problem. This is known as the dreaded “red ring of death”. Your unit will not run if this is occurring, as you probably already know!

There are some general things you can do to keep you going, unless of course, you have the red ring of death. I can tell you from experience that any of these remedies are only a temporary fix and won’t last, so I won’t even cover them here. You can look up other articles in the Google toolbox that I or I’m sure others have written for what these are.

I can tell you that these remedies only prolong the agony of what you ultimately will have to do. You will have to send your unit to an Xbox repair center, or you will have to learn how to fix an Xbox 360 by yourself. I’ll discuss these one at a time, and then you can decide what you need to do that is best for you.

As I said, you can send your Xbox to an Xbox repair center. I can tell you horror stories about this, but there are some that have sent their unit away, and come away satisfied. The problem with this, is that there are many different scenarios that can derail you. First, you have to find out if your unit is covered under the warranty, because if it’s not, it will cost you $150 to fix. If you go this route, be forewarned that it will take about two months to get your unit back. The other issue involved with this is, what are the warranties associated with the newly fixed machine, and even if it is covered for another repair, do you want to have to wait another two months to get your machine back.

The other option is to fix the machine yourself. Well, let me tell you when I started with my process, this was the one option I thought wasn’t really an option because I have next to no technical skills. Then I ran into someone who told me it would be easy, it would only cost about thirty dollars, and I would then be able to fix my machine anytime it went bad. After that, I chose to fix my machine myself, and was I glad. That was one problem out of my life forever.

After doing much research, I found out the best guides will include both PDF and video instruction. The one I used is called the 3 Red Light Fix repair guide. It not only offers both types of instruction, but it comes with a special money back guarantee. If you can’t fix your unit within an hour, you can get your money back. Now I ask you, would you rather wait months for Microsoft, possibly pay $150, and have no guarantee it won’t happen again, or pay $30 for a one hour guarantee. You’ve got to be saying to yourself, the same thing I did when I first found out about this deal. Where do I go to get this! For more information, go to the following link! [url not allowed]!
