Yeah so when I first got my xbox it started having the red ring for about 5 mins then it stooped, now it's about 1 year later and it's started again. It's been going on like this for about a day now.

So, any ideas of how to fix without sending it to Microsoft or will I have to wait about 1 month for it to get repaired?

Also, please no fanboys saying the 360 is shit or whatever.

I believe my friend has had 3 rrod's on 360's since December 07. Microsoft fixed it the first time then just replaced it the next time. for the 3rd I believe he was given a high street voucher as a refund for about 3/4 of the value of the console from when he first bought it. we then went down to game and got a ps3 instead (i dont intend to sound like a fanboy btw) I think one of his problems is the fact he never looks after anything. he's even had more shit with his ps3 in about 4 months than ive had with mine in 3 years.

My advice is to look after it when microsoft have fixed it, care for the console and it should be ok ish.

What the hell does he do to it? I have my PS3 on for prolonged amounts of time and haven't had one problem since release day... I just keep it well ventilated. I did it with my 360 too... That still felt the need to RRoD on me though. Hopefully when I get a new one it'll behave better and M$ can redeem themselves.


Only just read the post so i'll reply.

He doesnt give a shit about anything because mummy and daddy went through a divorce a few years back and he clicks his fingers and gets what he wants. any resistance to his demands will be met with i'll ask dad/mum instead, dependant on which parent says no. if he didnt get the xbox replaced by ms then im sure his dad would have stumped up the cash.

a prime example of his lack of care is when he moved his 360 back to his bedroom and threw it onto his bed and then it bounced off onto the floor. It worked, for a bit. oh, the ps3 was left in a unventilated cupboard and was always on, but thanks to me its working ok now. I told him he's a fucktard for puttin it in there and mummy and daddy aren't going to replace it cos i told them he's a fucktard
