    Before I get in to Xbox repair I must begin by saying I love my Xbox and would not be without it for a minute. Like a gaming platform I think it is second to none. Yes I believe its better than the ps3 but thats just my opinion and I be aware of ps3 is another great machine.

    Now to the reason for this short article. Xbox repair. If you have an Xbox or perhaps a friend of yours has an Xbox, without doubt you will be aware of the many problems these machines are having. It appears as many as one out of three Xbox games consoles are affected some type of hardware problem during its life. Now this is a hell of the lot of Xbox's that will require some type of repair. Which appears like some embarrassment to Microsoft.

    OK so why are each one of these problems happening, and do you know the problems? Well it would appear the root cause of all of the Xbox's problems is heat related. You may have experienced this situation yourself, after a heavy gaming session of over 4 hours your Xbox freezes. You try the old trick of a reboot (switching it off and then on again). Then you definitely get the now infamous 'Red Ring Of Death'. This for those who have no idea is where the once green lights on the front of the console are replaced by flashing red lights, the red lights could be flashing in either one or three from the four light sections. That my pal is game over and time for Xbox repair.

    So its overheating resulting in the problems. Simply the console is getting that hot inside that some of the soldered contacts are breaking down. This sometimes happens slowly over time or can happen after one long gaming session but the answers are the same. No more gaming for you personally until your xbox is repaired.

    So what do you do if you have this issue. Very first thing is not to panic, it may be fixed. So this is the good news and today the bad. If your from warranty its likely to set you back about $150. Ouch. Now for some the cash isn't the worst part. What about the fact that your likely to be without having your Xbox for up to three months. Three years no gaming, suppose.

    My Xbox is within warranty I here you cry, well your fortunate (you are if you possess the original purchase receipt in your name). There's more chance of a warranty repair now Microsoft have extended the warranty period to Three months now. However, you have to meet a selection of their strict warranty rules to be eligible for a a totally free Xbox repair. To begin it obviously has to be inside the agreed warranty period (3 years). You need the initial receipt inside your name. Even the warranty only covers hardware faults that create the red ring lights.

    The issue with getting Microsoft to correct your xbox apart from the cost (if from warranty) it's time it takes. As I said the 2009 can be up to A few months. This is mainly because of the amount of xbox repairs being carried out.

    There's another means to fix your condition, it might appear at little daunting in the beginning but trust me its a piece of cake. repair your xbox yourself. but wait I'm not sure the first thing about xbox repair. Not a problem an xbox can easily be repaired of all these faults only using several easily accessible tools and a repair guide. There are a few guides available but be sure you choose one that has video instruction in addition to a manual. They are easy and easy to follow and you'll have you Xbox ready to go within a handful of hours. No wait. No cost.
