If you have found your way to this article then you have probably turned on your Xbox only to find the instead of the green lights it is flashing red lights at you. The reason this can happen is for a number of different reasons that nearly all of them is down to the Xbox 360 overheating.

So in this article I am going to give you three tips that will help you repair your Xbox and get back to your games.

The first thing you can try if you are having any sort of problem with the console is simply switching it off and back on again, although this sounds fairly self explanatory you may find that it works and you never get the flashing red lights again.

Another thing that may help is to remove all the wires that connect it to your Xbox and then try plugging them in again also make sure that they are clear of dust and you give them a little wipe before you plug them all back in.

If this does not help the problem then unfortunately it does sound like you will have to start looking for Xbox 360 repair. You can either ring Microsoft and they will send out a box for you to put your broken console in and then a guy from UPS will come and pick it up for you, and the repair work will take about four weeks to be completed.

If you cannot bear to wait this long and don't worry because there is an alternative, you can search the web for a decent Xbox 360 repair guide and what this will do is tell you how to keep the heat away from the main chips on the motherboard thus preventing any overheating and solving the problem!

Word of caution if you are going to go down this route, make sure that you get a guide with a full guarantee and also it is worthwhile to get preview of the guide like the actual videos or a sample of what you will be getting and this way you will not be disappointed and you will get your Xbox back to life fast.

I hope this article has helped you figure out what is wrong with your Xbox and is also given you some hints and tips to get back to gaming fast!

Good luck!
