The Towel Trick - how to fix your Xbox 360 three red light problem.

Some of your might have heard of the towel trick when it comes to troubleshooting your Xbox 360.

It's pretty simple to do the towel trick


  1. You just wrap your Xbox 360 with a cotton towel
  2. Turn on your problematic Xbox 360 for ten minutes or so (without actually playing a game or anything) and then take towel off
  3. Wait 10-20 minutes for it to cool back down (if you switch it on at this point without waiting for it to cool down you'll get the ordinary overheating lights warning)
  4. Turn it back on and hope and pray that the three red lights of doom are gone!

Sometimes you get an extra 20 minutes of playing time, and sometimes you get a few extra hours.

It's believed that the reason this towel trick works is because on occasion one of the solder joints inside your xbox that connects one of the chips to the board becomes cracked.

When you overheat your Xbox 360 with the three red lights on, the solder sometimes melts and forms a proper connection again.

I must stress that this is a very TEMPORARY fix.

The dangerous part of this fix is that overheating any electronic device is never a good thing. The Xbox 360 has fans on it to COOL IT DOWN. When you purposely heat it up you run the risk of seriously damaging your Xbox. So try this at your own risk.

Don't say I didn't warn you, but hey, it was already broken right?

At this point you're probably thinking that an ordinary soldering iron would do the trick, but the way the solder is laid out is a ball/grid array, so a standard soldering iron won't work.

For a more permanent and money back guaranteed way to fix your Xbox 360 from the three red lights error Buy this ebook and save yourself a lot of hassle.

I used it myself on mine and it worked a treat. The instructions are easy to understand and it has videos and everything. It took me about 47 minutes to get mine back up and running, and I'm a complete noob at DIY.

Three Red Lights Error

If your looking to a solution to that annoying three red lights error for your XBox 360, you're in the right place.

You might have already looked up a few of the free quick fixes that are out there like the towel fix, which admittedly works for a little bit of time but then 10 hours later you find your XBox 360's three red lights flashing in your face again.

You might even have considered sending your XBox away to be repaired, which if it's still under warranty really isn't too bad. If you have the time to spare (because it can take ages) then this is the preferable option so as no to void your warranty.

The big downside to being one of the first people in your neighbourhood to own an XBox 360 is that you end up having to find out all the problems, errors, and issues that they were too lazy to test in the factory.

I was pretty peeved when it happened to my XBox 360. I'm not much one for tv, but I have a giant plasma screen sitting in my lounge for high-def gaming. I was in the middle of project gotham racing 4 when the three red lights of death struck.

Who knew that three blinking red lights could cause so much heartache and disappointment.

Mine wasn't under warranty and the quote from the repair shop to repair the 3 red light problem error was almost as much as buying a new one.

So I got online and looked around for a solution.

There were a few quick fixes, and they worked for a little while, as in less than 24 hours. Then I found an ebook that totally solved my problems. It's the BEST repair guide out there.

There are a few of them out there that give you good information on how to fix the three red lights but this one has videos and everything.

Long story short I was able to repair my XBox 360 all by myself with just some regular household items, and I even fixed my buddy's one too. Maybe I should start charging people for my services, lol.

Seriously though, click on the links and buy the ebook.

You'll be doing yourself a favour, and you absolutely get what you pay for, and it has a money back guarantee.

In life, too often we go with the 'free' information, but after trying the free fixes on the net I wish I had just sucked it up and bought the ebook to start with. If you're not afraid of a screw driver, you'll be able to fix it yourself.

Even if it doesn't work for you, no harm done because your Xbox was already broken.

Give it a try and feel good about yourself for fixing those damn three red lights.
