Xbox 360 RED RINGS???

Hey peeps, my xbox 360 has a funny problem. after watching a dvd, if i choose to then play a game imediately after and pause the game for a short period, say 10 to 15 mins, i get the 3/4 red ring and it just flashes, and is quite warm to touch. I have found if i shut it down and leave it for half an hour it starts just fine and i can play for as long as i wish without it happening again. I also rang microsoft and they said 3/4 red ring is ok... but the full red ring is terminal and to send it to them. Finally what is the RRoD procedure i hear if?

P.S. if you are under warranty and you decide to call microsoft, DO NOT tell them you have the cooling fans stand, as it voids warranty

Hey,

First off 3/4 red rings is not ok, that's what I had with mine about 3 months ago and it was a general hardware failure resulting in me sending it to Microsoft for repair. The problem is if you send it to them and it works as you said it does sometimes they will do nothing and just send it back to you in the same state. It's a fault with the mother board where the solder on the components gets too hot and then starts eroding the thermal paste on the components like the graphics card and the processor etc.

I would wait for a while until it literally won't even boot onto the dashboard (as I did) and then do everything online at www.xbox.com/support as that's the most hassle free option.

My xbox 360 plays games as dvds!?


I doubt you put all your games :). your XBOX 360 is probably hacked to play homebrew games. that happens when usually a new protection is enabled on newer games, every several months new protection is issued to restrict piracy. the only thing is to get it hacked with a newer DVD-ROM security override.
