Motherf*ckin Red Ring of Death!

well it was a good run. Had my Xbox since late 07, I believe I have one from the original troubled years.

Well tonight, went to turn it on just to be greeted by the red ring of death... ....well time to pick up a newer one...

It's usually fixable... Search your problem on YouTube.

Unhappy

FYI if anybody other than MS fixes it they can ban it from LIVE for system tampering if it is not fixed correctly. and even if you open it but do not fix it they will not fix it even though it is out of warranty even if you paid them.

but on a different note the 'slim' version of the 360 is a far better 360 than the older ones were. they have a much better cooling system with a huge fan on the top (if it is laid on it's side) that draws out the heat very nicely. if you are a casual gamer and only play single player and some online play games get the 4 gig model for 199 you can always add the 250 gig hard drive down the line but you would be better off getting the 250 gig model for the 299 plus it comes with a headset (both models have the wi fi and support that Kinnect gizmo with no need to plug it into a power outlet as the 360 powers it just fine as long as it is a slim model).

I looked into that, but mine is so far outside of the warranty that I'd have to pay and be out a few weeks without an xbox. So I'm just gonna pick up a slim.

I wish this had waited a few months. I wanted the R2-D2 edition Xbox coming out. Oh well.

I'm not throwing it away. My buddy is a computer & software engineer and likes to mess around with components (think of what people did when the kinect came out) so he's gonna give me $50-$100 for it and mess around with it.

Sorry man.

All you need is a $5 tube of Thermal Paste to fix it.

I had one of the originals, about 2 years ago it started getting the red ring while playing GTA 4, got pissed, turned it off. Then later my wife's dog peed on it. I don't think microsoft would have honored the warranty after that.

If you can, get a new one, the black ones are awesome.

I own all systems. Ps3 gets used least. It makes a great blu-ray player though.


PC>xbox>ps3
Wii doesn't count. Haha

It is fixable but probably only to get you by until you can buy a newer slim version. It usually messes up again a few months later. The first Xbox I owned was a 360 that already had the red ring of death. I bought it just to try and fix it and got it on the first try. So its easy.

Thumbs up

funny my 10 year old XBOX and 11 year old PS2 are still working 100% after a decade of being owned. my PS3 is one of the 'launch' 'slim' models that came out about 2 years ago still working like brand new and I use it more than my PS2 or xbox or even my Wii .

I've never had one issue with my PS3 and it gets used much more than any of my failed 360s did. I'm now on my third 360 and if it wasn't for Gears I wouldn't have bothered purchasing the current 360. As soon as I'm finished with Gears I'll be getting rid of it.

My 360 has held up good so far. It's a Halo edition. I remember researching at the time when I was gonna buy one about all the different revisions and what to look for. Mine has a big heat sink and a large copper heat pipe. So I think between that and the fact that I don't use it as much as my ps3 (mainly because everyone I know has ps3) I think it will last forever. Only thing that sucks is it's only 20gigs and that filled up fast. I wanted the elites HD but those were dying left and right at the time. I would love the new Gears 3 console if this ever shat out.
