Xbox 360 "Red Ring of Death" Hardware Failure

Since the product's introduction in November, 2005, a significant quantity of Microsoft's Xbox 360 game consoles have experienced a field malfunction that is indicated by three flashing red LEDs on the front of the console.

This white paper contains findings, conclusions, and recommendations for the proper equipment and techniques needed to repair the consoles and eliminate future recurrence of the problems.
