Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Hi, you have got the red ring of death problem, if you google the following you will see exactly what im talking about:
how to fix rrod free guide
then hit search then that will list loads of sites that offer a guide on fixing this problem.
now the problem itself is to do with the fact that either the gpu chip or the cpu chip on the main circuit board has over heated, now if you have any warranty left i would take it back and get an exchange.
when microsoft made the xbox they used some cheap lead free solder and it is very brittle, and over time the solder cracks and you get the red ring of death, now their is an xclamp fix you can have done to solve the problem, but it wont be a long term fix, it may last a week it may last 3 or 4 months but in the end its going to fail again and be un-repairable,
i have done many xclamp fixes on 100s of xboxes and 8 out of 10 of the times it solves the problem and gets them working again, their is also a trick you can do using a towel but this is only a very short term fix, what you need to get done if you want it working again is get it taken apart and have the old heat sink paste removed and new paste put on the cpu and gpu chip then the heat sink needs replacing with the xclamp fix this will then get your xbox working.
i buy damaged xboxes all the time that have your problem and they are fixable but the fix may only work for a week or two so you need to bare this in mind if your going to have the work done, failing that you would need to get a new xbox.
let me know if you need further assistance ok
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks
