How to Get Rid of Red Ring of Death Permanently, Affordably, And in Less Than 2 Hours!

How to Get Rid of Red Ring of Death Permanently, Affordably, And in Less Than 2 Hours!

If you are reading this article, then I know your situation. You were playing your fave game on your XBox 360 and you are just about to beat the big boss and then bam! Nothing. You just lost! Not to the boss, but to your own XBox. Now, instead of a green light, all you see is a blank screen and red lights. Not a good sign. You think back to what you have heard others talk about, the dreaded red ring of death. And you stop for a second and want to pull your hair out and scream.

Ok, now calm down if you can.

I’m going to show you how you can fix this problem within just a couple hours.

First, is your XBox under warranty? If yes, then send it back to support and they will take care of it. You might be without your console for several weeks, but you will get a good one back. If not, and you don’t want to spend the $ 140 to send it back to support, then you can try the following.

Whatever you do, do NOT do the towel method nor the soldering method. Both can cause more damage than good.

You have several options. You can either purchase a guide that will be solution book for all kinds of errors, or you can try the x-clamp if you know that your problem is a loose GPU.

Most problems stem from a loose GPU.

So, the x-clamp method is as follows.

1. Open your XBox 360.

2. Locate the x-clamp.

3. Remove x-clamp carefully.

4. Remove heat sink carefully.

5. Replace with new washers and a new x-clamp.

6. Screw back on carefully making sure all sides are equally tight.

7. Replace cover.

8. Test to make sure it worked.

This has worked for some people who are good at doing this themselves without tutorials or other guidance.

If you are one of those people and you know your GPU is loose, then go ahead and try it.

If you don’t feel comfortable doing that, then you can purchase a guide such as the XBox 360 Red Light Fix. There are other guides out there. But I like this one the best because it has super clear video tutorials along with a tutorial ebook. Using just common household tools, this guide teaches you how to repair your XBox 360. It teaches you how to solve not just the red ring of death problem, but it also addresses freeze ups, distorted graphics, 2 red lights, and the e74 error.

But, before you purchase anything, I would look at a sample video to see if you can follow along. Everybody has a different teaching style. If this is the route you want to take, then make sure that what you are getting works the way you need it to work.

So, how affordable are these?

Well, with the x-clamp method, you will need to buy an x-clamp kit and that’s pretty much your only expense. The guides may be a little bit more expensive than the x-clamp kits, but you still end up saving more than $ 100 off of support. So, if you are strapped for cash, this is the way to go.

If you have decided to purchase a guide that will cover different problems, then you’ll want to head over to for an analysis of different guides that are out there.
