How to Do the XBox 360 Towel Trick


Overheating is the main cause of the XBox 360 3 red lights error.The early XBox 360 models were all made with power and good looks in mind, unfortunately, Microsoft didnt really think about the heat being generated by all of these components packed into a tight space.There are 2 cooling fans at the rear but they arent up to the job and the case is very narrrow, and doesnt allow enough heat to escape. The towel trick then is an attempt to fix this overheating problem.

The xbox 360 towel trick basically involves you wrapping a towel around your console and letting it heat up again.Although it seems hard to believe there is some good theory behind the madness of wrapping your XBox 360 up in a towel. The only sure way to fix the 3 red light error is to get a good guide from the internet and perform the fix yourself.There are many good guides available to download, all for about the cost of a game, and they need no special tools to do the fix, which takes abot an hour.Best thing sbout it is the fix is permanent and above all safe.

Alright, you've got your hair all over the floor now because your dear old Xbox 360 is showing the dreaded - RROD! While this is happening, you already have your best friends - COD4, FFXIII, Gears of Wars 2 waiting for you on the rack but you can't play them!

Step-by-step guide on how to do the Xbox 360 towel trick:
  1. You'll need to confirm that your Xbox 360 actually has the 3 red lights, and not any other errors.
  2. Prepare 3 towels, like those that you normally use for showers.
  3. Stay focus, and remove everything from the Xbox 360, including the hard drives, wired controllers, games, etc, however, DO NOT remove the power supply.
  4. Take the towels, make sure they are dry, and wrap them around your Xbox 360 consoles.
  5. Next up, plug on the Xbox 360's power supply and turn your console on. Don't worry if you notice the usual Red ring of death. Continue letting it run for 15-20 minutes.
  6. Afterwards, turn off the Xbox 360 including the power supply and let it cool down for 10 minutes or longer.
  7. Plug everything back in and turn it on again. It should work by now.

NOTE: I'll have to warn you that this method involves heating the internal chips to extremely high temperatures so that broken solder points get resoldered again and warped components get reshaped. So instead of a fix, you're actually damaging your Xbox 360 further, and expect to see RROD in another few days.
