Xbox 360 Repair is a big talking point on the web and there seems to be quite alot of technical problems with Microsoft’s newest gaming system. During the past couple of years the new console has had all sorts of problems such as random games freezing up, graphics errors and even games not loading up when you put the Xbox game in the drive.
Although the number one failing with the system seems to be the 3 red lights of doom which means “General Hardware Failure” and the reason this happens is because the console gets too hot!
The hardware that are affected in the console by overheating can be different, although nearly all the problems above are caused by lack of airflow and overheating!
This article will tell you the choices you have for Xbox 360 Repair and also give you what I consider to be the best and safest method for Xbox 360 Repair.
The first method you have for Xbox 360 Repair is to send the faulty console back to Microsoft and if you are still in warranty then this is quite a good idea. If you have the 3 red lights of doom on your Xbox then Microsoft has recognized that this is a problem and will repair the Xbox for no cost to you!
However if you are having a different problem with your Xbox then you will not be quite so lucky and will have to pay $140+ to get the problems fixed!
Also with the above option you will find yourself having to wait for up to 5 weeks to get a new console back to you, and also no guarantees that the error will not happen again!
I have spoken to some people that have had the same problems happen to them about 5 times even when thay have sent it back!
The second choice you have for Xbox 360 Repair is to use an independent company and you will see laods of these about online. Basically they are companies who claim to do the repair for you but in a quicker time frame
There are a few of them competing with each other so you can be sure that the repairs will be done quickly, however the problem with these companies is that you have no clue who is repairing your Xbox and also if they know how to do the work properly.
If you send your console to one of these companies for Xbox 360 Repair and then have any errors in the future than you will have voided your warranty so it is really a good plan to think about that before you use one of these companies!
So before you give up hope for your broken Xbox there is another way that you can get Xbox 360 Repair.
The third method that you have to do this is to perform the repairs work yourself! It really is not as complicated as it sounds because the reason that the problems arise on the Xbox 360 is down to the hardware overheating and all you need to know how to do is stop the processors taking too much heat and you will have it fixed.
There are a few Xbox 360 Repair guides online that claim to show you how to carry out Xbox 360 Repair although not all of them are equal and some are just made up of forum posts that discuss the problem so it is really worth while to get a good guide that will tell you how to do the repairs!
When you are searching for an Xbox 360 Repair guide make sure that it includes these 3 things:
Full Video Walkthroughs:
Make sure that before you purchase any Xbox 360 Repair guide that it has video walkthroughs for the repair work so all you have to do is follow along. If it is a real fix then the product creator should have done the fix themselves and be confident enough to make a video of it.
Money Back Guarantee?
Make sure also that the guide comes with a full money back guarantee as if the repair does not work for you at least this way you will not be left out of pocket and be able to get your money back and then send it back to Microsoft.
Last but not least, make sure that the guide contains full technical support so you can get in touch if you need help repairing the Xbox or any other questions.
So there you have it!
