A key question that I find about Xbox repair is
Why did my XBOX 360 just stop working?
This is an easy question to answer because it’s simply that your XBOX is overheating. The most difficult question to answer is why. Knowing why your XBOX overheats can help solve your problem.
The XBOX 360 is not that great at coping when being operated in extreme conditions. This is true of many electronic products. Your XBOX 360 should never be in a very hot or very cold area. Dust can also lead to overheating problems so you should try to keep your game console in an area free of dust and blow out the air vents with a can of compressed air from time to time. Doing this will improve the overall performance of your gaming system.
You should always have your console in a cool and dry area. You should also shut it off if you’re not using it. This will really help to reduce these overheating problems. Never place your console on a carpet or any surface that can block the fans from working properly. This can cause the fan vents to get covered and reduce the amount of air circulation through the console and will lead to overheating and cause a problem.
That’s a pretty good list of reasons as to why your XBOX is overheating. If your 360 is already having overheating problems and you don’t fix them now, this can lead to hardware failures in the future.
Well, the good news is your problems can be easily solved. You have a few different options when it comes to repairing your XBOX 360. The first way is to send your console to Microsoft directly for repair. If your system is under warranty, you can probably get it repaired for free. If it is not covered by warranty it can cost you $140 or more, plus shipping and handling costs.
The biggest disadvantage to sending your 360 to Microsoft for repair is, it will be gone for 3-4 weeks, and when you get your console back is won’t be the original XBOX 360 you sent in for repair. Instead, you will be sent another refurbished system.
The next option is to get your XBOX repaired in Vancouver. This will probably also cost you a lot of money, although the wait time to get your console back will usually be much shorter. You can still expect to be without your gaming system for about a week while it’s getting repaired.
The third option, and one that most people don’t even know about, is to repair the XBOX 360 themselves with a repair guide. This is the best option especially if you don’t want to lose your XBOX for a long time. This may seem a little crazy, but with a little help and guidance, it’s not really that difficult. There are several XBOX repair guides online that can help you through the whole process with simple step by step instructions.
These guides have very detailed instructions, pictures and even videos, so you can follow right along as you do the repair. Many people find that this is the best option because the costs are minimal and you can usually get you back up and running in under an hour.
Another great advantage of getting an XBOX repair guide is that it not only solves the current problem your having, but many other common problems that others have had. So if you have future problems, you will have the information needed to solve the problem at hand quickly and easily.
