That really sucks.
Unfortunately there's only a few things you could do before you need to send it in.
1. Unplug EVERYTHING and plug them back in.
2. Take out your hard drive and reboot the system, hopefully, it's just the hard drive.
3. It may be overheating, have you bought peripheral cooling devices?
4. Phone the XboX repair center, refer to your manual.
5. Send it in.

Make sure when you do send it in, to keep your hard drive. My buddy sent that in with his system and never got it back. In other words, don't send anything else except the xbox itself, no wires or controllers, or you won't get it back
They're very good with helping you out on a refurbished system, they even gave my friend 2 years free on the 360 network when they sent it back. You may luck out.
Good luck.

Denon 1909 flashing red ring after 20 minutes


Well on most models red ring singals :

1 ) speaker wires touching something they should not
2 ) internal overheating, shutting down to protect
3 ) something is wrong, bring in for service.

I'm guessing it's out of warranty?

When I play 4x4 evo 2 on my xbox 360 it will not save or load


Rob B is totally wrong, it has nothing to do with your 360 over heating or going to have the Red Ring Of Death. I am having the same problem too. Some of the old xbox games are compatible with 360 but some have bugs that do in some case render them unable to play to optimal performance. Try switching your display settings, I have one game that won't play at all unless my display is at 480p

1 red ring has appeared, game play grainy


This means that you have either played it so much, that the circuits inside the xbox have been damaged. Luckily, you didn't get 3-4 rings, which means it is unable to play. So i suggest to go to Game stop for repairs. I'm just giving a suggestion.

2 Red rings is caused by the Xbox 360 overheating. This should not be happening after 40 minutes of play.

I can see the menu screen but after half an hour of demo playing the console switches off and shows a red ring. games arent playing either


if it is 2 red rings it is overheating. moved it to a place that is not confined. or get an after market fan add on. if it is more than 2 rings, you need to send it in for repair

Xbox 360 halo problems


my halo sometimes does the same thing when i start up the game but pressing a usually gets you through it, but if your xbox 360 overheats within minutes and is an older xbox 360 its usually a burnt out fan or just full of dust, if its old then ur warranty might already be out and if it is just open up the xbox and use an air compressor or anything else to get all the dust out of the xbox. in my case everything was just caked with dust. anyways... good luck
