Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
I just got my xbox back from Gernmany where it was being fixed (red ring). I literally just turned it on to play some fifa 09 - it worked for about 30 seconds (let me pick language) then cut out and gave me a black screen.
When i turn it on it makes a jumpy grinding noise. Other games are working - i know fifa works as i only had it two days before i got red ring of doom and i played it last night at my friends.
If u have any ideas - please respond.
That happens to me once in a while too. What you do, try taking the disk drive out and run it under hot water for about 20 seconds. Then, dry it thoroughly. Put it back in and it should work.

Tips for a great answer:
From what you have said it sounds like you have the RROD - 2 RED RINGS ERROR
The main causes are Hardware failure, overheating or wear & tear.
You may need to perform simple maintenance, clean or in some cases adjust settings.
To get the best advice on where to start I recommend a GOOD REPAIR GUIDE, From this you can fix the problem at home and avoid any large repair bills. Its easier than it sounds when you have help from the guide.
I used Gamer Fix to get the best guides
The other solution would be to send the console off to its manufacturer, This is free if your still in warranty. If your console is out of warranty then the usual price of repair is $150
