Its wierd when i turn off the system the middle light on the ring turns off but the controller lights stay on and the screen fades and turns off after around 2-3 seconds. im getting worried. ive had it for since may 30 2006 and no red ring yet. (if it helps i also use and intercooler ex)
Don't use the intercooler, it's really not good for the console. I'm not sure what could be causing the 'fading' effect, I don't think I've ever heard of this. Call Microsoft and explain your situation, there may also be more info on your problem on sites like xbox-scene.com or llamma. Sorry I can't be of more help but please rate if at all useful, thanks!

There really shouldn't be a correlation between the metal ring in the oven cavity and the erratic operation of the control board. Although it might seem suspicious, what happens inside the oven cavity stays in the oven cavity.
From the sounds of things you have a bad RF Board. This is the board that controls the syncing of your controllers, as well as your ring of light. If there is someone in your area that fixes the RROD they may be able to replace your RF board as well. I'd be happy to do it, but shipping would be almost the same cost as the repair.

your xbox 360 is overheating its called the red ring of death look it up on google you can have microsoft fix it if you still have a warranty on it, it shuts down so none of the components in the xbox 360 get damaged
I think you need to take your controller and turn it on. On top of the controller is a real little button hold is for a second and the rings should spin on the xbox and the cont. clockwise (this is called sinking up the first player controller). Or try to turn your xbox on by pushing the middle of the controller X.
If you power up a new
controller and the Ring of Light lights just keep cycling around in a
circle without settling on a position, this means that the game console
does not recognize that controller.
This can happen with a new
controller or when replacing batteries.
To sync it up with the XBox
360, you need to first turn on your game machine,
then turn on the
wireless controller (push the Xbox button and hold it until it lights
then press the little connect button on the game console (round
button to the right of the two memory slots on the front of the
then press the connect button on the rear of the wireless
controller in between the left and right buttons that you normally push
with your index fingers (above and to the right of the battery release
The Ring of Light will cycle on the controller and then it
will be assigned a position by the Xbox and stay lit. To turn a
controller off or disconnect it, press and hold the Xbox button in the
middle for a second or two until the light goes off - if you are in the
middle of a game it will ask you if you want to turn off just the
controller or the console as well. When the console powers down, all
wireless controllers are automatically turned off.
If this does not work, attempt to connect with a different controller to make sure that the controller you are trying to use is not defective.
What appears to be the problem in my case is that the RF module board in which the power button and the controller sync lies has been damaged. If aboslutely no lights come on when you power on your xbox 360, but it loads like normal, something has fried on the module and needs to be replaced. You can ether contact microsoft about this, or buy one off of ebay and install it yourself or have someone who knows how install it for you. Doing so would void your warrenty of course though.
Three lights flash red on the Ring of Light (RoL) on the front of your Xbox 360 console. The upper-right quadrant light is the only light that does not flash red. The three flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with your Xbox 360 console.
You can try one or two things.
1. Turn on your xbox and check to see if the power supply light is green. If it is green there is a problem with the system. If it is red it means you should check your connections and restart the xbox.
2. These rings have a tendency of meaning that there is a problem with the system itself. Most companies sell extra insurance to cover this "ROL" Ring of life. You can contact Microsoft by calling them. The number is usually listed on the back of the video game booklets.
I wish you the best and I hope this resolved your problem
