How do you fix red eye on xbox360?

OK, so I know most of you gamers out there have XBOX 360 problems, the worst of which being the three rings of death. But the main problem is not that your XBOX is dead, or past its warranty, its simply overheated! This means that your XBOX is in a tight space where it cant breathe, so all you've got to do is move your XBOX into an open area (don't for get to keep it plugged in!) with a fan or blowing source on, and try turning it on, also blow through the air holes on your XBOX on the sides, and do not ever put the XBOX facing like this __ it must be like this l and once you turn it on it should work. :^)

Which position should i keep my xbox 360 in?

best way is on its side, don't block the air holes on the bottom of the xbox or around the bottom and top. lay it in a horizontal position, so the text on the DVD draw can be read the right way up, left to right and, the hard disk is on the left. don't block the air vents at the back and, don't place anything on top of the xbox 360. allow as much air flow around the box as you can, this will help it keep cool if its horizontal there seems less chance of the disks scratching, falling out, etc. You can stand the system up vertical that's with the hard disk at the top. for display only. when its not turned on and, when there is no disk in the draw, this is for display only but to use it Microsoft say to have it in a horizontal position. Also don't move the box when you have a disk in drive or, when its powered up. this can cause the disk to scratch or, the leads at the back to pop out.

How do you fix the open tray error on xbox 360?

Either your laser in the drive has died or there is some dust that is causing it to fail reading. See if you can fix it by blowing some compressed air into the drive. If that fails open the Xbox and clean the lens with some optical cleaner. If something else is wrong with the drive either purchase a new drive (you will need to flash it) or a new Xbox. If your not a tech whiz you could also take it to a local repair shop.

Do not play the Xbox 360 for a huge amount of time, this will overheat the GPU. You may want to buy a cooler, some people say this helps to cool down the Xbox. Place your console in a open area, this is because air can get to the xbox and the xbox can release its hot air without any bounce back.
