Xbox 360 3 Red Lights Fix - Can you really fix this problem yourself?

There are a lot of guides out there that claim to help you fix the XBox 360 3 Red Lights problem "in under an hour". Given the fact that we all must take what we see and hear on the internet with a grain of salt, is it really possible for a person to pop open their XBox 360 and fix this problem themselves? I mean, how many of you would "pop open" your television set and fix it yourself? Exactly.

However, where there is doubt, there is also hope. Fact of the matter is, the XBox 360 is a computer with easily interchangeable components. I used to build computers from scratch using the same parts that IBM, Dell and all the other manufacturers out there were using. The hardware is the easy part. It's the software that will really give you a headache.

Fortunately, the XBox 360 3 Red Lights problem is a hardware problem and if you don't mind opening up your XBox (and if you're out of warranty, there's no reason not to), you can fairly easily fix this very common problem.

The key is to pick up a step-by-step guide that tells you exactly how to do it. There are some excellent guides available out there. There's even websites solely devoted to the XBOX 360 3 Red Lights problem. (Ahh, I love the internet). I found one website that seems to do a very credible review of 4 "XBox 3 Red Lights" do-it-yourself fix-it guides. It seems to me, that these guides must be the real deal, because they've been available for a while now and the market would have said no to them if they were just blowing smoke. In any case, the guides range in price from around $25 to $30 bucks and some even include videos. So given that Microsoft and other outside companies want upwards of $140 to fix the "Red Ring of Death", these guides seem to be a very sensible alternative. Probably worth at least checking out my XBox 360 Red Ring of Death reviews.
