    Default Hmm ... bad news (RRoD) [Part 2!]

    Sorry guys...



    Served me well even though it was coming up for 2 years soon.


    Typical, looks like the Diablo GT may be released, the only car I want want want and I'm going to have a bit of a wait. Hope you guys can do the random sayings and get frustrated at people turning without telling you, without me.

    C'est la vie!

    When will it return? (get the date and win an Atari L/XL T-shirt!!)

    I suppose one good thing is, even though I have a project to do I can concentrate on something that is long overdue. This could be a good thing!

    Alright then, 2 things. lol

    Btw what's that saying? Bad news like company or something, the reason I say this is because those 300 photos I had have somehow disappeared and I have an idea how but hope I'm wrong.

    Oh what a night!

    This is the infamous 3 Red Lights of Death (3RLoD) aka as the Red Ring of Death (RRoD) which basically means the box is dead or dying due to something melting near the Graphics card or something meaning the system can't run anything giving out a total failure which cannot be solved by merely letting it cool down.

    The 'towel trick' is when you essentially bake your 360 so much so that it heats so much inside that it melts this component that has come loose and thus fixes the join that has since come apart (very basic description). This has worked for some people but personally I don't mind being without it especially since they fix this problem and add extra cooling to the inside if they fix your machine, if they send a refurb or even sometimes a new one then you're good to go BUT you can run into problems with DLC and may even worse case scenario receive a banned unit due to it being modded.

    I'm optimistic though that I can get a lot done in the time it has to be away so here's to about 3-4 weeks (could be less) with time to spare.

    Hope that clears it up a bit for you.

    Maybe it's also caused by dust coming into the 360?

    It doesn't matter how much horsepower your car has, it's about the smile on your face when you drive it.

    Just right a note that you're the infamous custard and they'll have to replace it! Or maybe not. Anyways, sad to hear that you've got RRoD

    Mine came back last week. It only took 2 weeks from when it left my house to when it arrived back. I was well impressed. And they fixed it, I didn't get a new machine or a refurbished one. Plus you get 1 month free Xbox Live Gold membership for the time it's away and a description of what went wrong with yours (in my case, the 3 red lights were caused by a malfunction of the mainboard).

    Hey Super when they came for yours did they bring a box (affectionately called the coffin) already or did you need to pack it up yourself?

    Cheers. I would like to get mine back tbh, it's done me well.
