Want To Fix An XBOX - Here's How!

By Grant Dougan

If you're an XBOX 360 gamer, then you're certainly not alone! It's easily the most popular game system out there. Sadly, it will break sometimes and then you're faced with those dreaded 3 red lights lit up on your XBOX. Let's take a closer look at how you can repair an XBOX 360.

There's all sorts of XBOX repair suggestions floating around. Different people have suggested various strategies to fix a broken XBOX 360, but most of these are complete bunk!

As an example, someone revealed "the towel trick". For some reason someone came up with the solution that wrapping up your system in a bath towel would magically repair it! Naturally this is more likely to start a fire than repair your XBOX 360!

And unfortunately this silly trick isn't the only XBOX 360 repair myth out there - there's plenty more. Some gamers have actually attempted to break open the case and used a bonding tool to try to repair the problem. There's a lot of working parts in an XBOX, and breaking open the case is likely going to cause problems - don't try this!

Naturally, you also have the option of sending in your system to Microsoft and let them repair it, but this isn't a wise choice either. You will be without your your XBOX for four to six weeks and you also are asked to dish out $140 plus shipping to get it back. That's a long time to wait and a good amount of cash!

I've always thought that the cost Microsoft charges is way too expensive. They should be prepared to help their customers for a more reasonable price, especially when it doesn't cost them close to that amount to fix your system. But I imagine they are out to earn money anyway possible.

The best option is to get a good XBOX 360 repair manual to show you how to fix it on your own. You can now find a few XBOX repair manuals that you can find that have been assembled by master technicians that have lots of experience in repairing the XBOX 360.

These manuals show you easy to follow directions and the best ones even come with full video instructions to make it even easier to follow. Truth is, repairing your system isn't difficult when you have the correct instructions.

The 360 is an amazing game system that continues to command the video game world. And thanks to XBOX 360 repair manuals, you have an great way to repair your XBOX if you ever need to.
