It does seem a little crazy that you can fix your Xbox 360 when technicians are charging well over a hundred dollars for it. But, when you understand the problem with your Xbox 360, you will see why you can do it yourself, and why it only takes just over an hour with a 30 minute cool down period.
The truth is, this repair was designed for the average young kid to be able to fix their system. You will have absolutely no problems following along with the repair and getting your kids Xbox 360 working.
Most common is the 3 red light error. If your system is showing 3 red lights on the power button and/or an E74 error screen, you have the 3 red light error.
This is also known as:
Red ring of death
3 Red rings
You may also have one of these other fairly common errors:
2 red lights
1 red light
E69 (or another E number)
All of these errors are caused by 1 thing: a loose GPU (graphics processing unit).
While Microsoft has not addressed this issue officially, they are at fault for your Xbox 360 breaking.
Here is what happened: Microsoft was in a race (against Sony and Nintendo) to be the first next generation console on the market (after the PS2, Gamecube, and Xbox). They rushed through production and ran into a problem during the final design stages.
The DVD drive was too big, and would not fit in Xbox 360. So to make room they decided to shrink the heat sink (which absorbs heat from the motherboard, and is basically the cooling unit). BIG MISTAKE.
Shrinking the heat sink turned out to be a major problem, and in one of the only press release statements made by Microsoft, they admitted there is a design flaw in each of the 16 million consoles sold that could cause the device to fail. This basically means anyone can get a red light error anytime. While vague on the issue, the heart of the message was there, namely we screwed up, sucks to be you. Great
The good news is you can repair this relatively fast by adjusting how the heat sink rests on the motherboard
So what EXACTLY is happening to my Xbox 360?
If this makes sense (and it will), you more than qualify to be able to fix your system:
Your Xbox 360 motherboard has 2 important chips on it, the CPU (central processing unit) and GPU (graphics processing unit).
The GPU is what processes graphics. The problem is, the heat sink (the cooling unit) that sits above it is too small. This means this chip gets very hot. As this chip heats up, the soldering (glue) that holds it becomes weak.
Making matters worse, as the motherboard heats up, it starts to flex (bend up and down). This flex action combined with the weakened soldering which holds the GPU on is what causes your problem.
As the motherboard heats up, the GPU (and sometimes the CPU too) becomes loose. Once the GPU comes loose your system freezes, and shows red light errors. Some red light errors are the result of the CPU coming loose as well.
And I am going to fix this how? Dont I need some super advanced technical device?
You would think so, but you dont. In fact, you only some basic tools: a poking device and a screw driver.
All you have to do is open the system up and adjust how the heat sink sits on the GPU and CPU. You are going to unscrew the heat sink, then put it back in a slightly adjusted position.
Then you turn the system on (with the fan unplugged) and you heat it slightly so the chips realign on the motherboard. You then turn it off, let it cool down (letting the chips harden in place), put it back together and viola, problem solved. The chips are now in position and will no longer over heat because of the adjustment you made. It really is simple. Distributed by Tubemogul.
