Xbox 360 2 Red Lights Suggestions?


Last night I took apart my 360 and reapplied thermal paste. I put it back together to find out that it worked, but only for 5 minutes. I tried taking it apart again and tightening the heat sinks more and cleaning the fans but it still overheats. Any more suggestions?

  1. make sure its not being cover and put it on a flat surface not carpet, then limit your self

    every 1.5 hours of gaming take a 20 min break for it to cool down his will prevent future

    red rings and stop heat damage

    hope this helps 🙂

  2. take off the bottom,top and front covers of the 360 (remove the hard drive too) and remove the game disc if theres a disc in the tray. then use an air compressor to blow air through the bottom and top of the 360 and remove any dust inside of it. i did this two days ago and now my 360 works fine and it even works quieter than it was before i cleaned out all the dust in the console
