Just turned the 360 on and to my horror the 3 red lights (of doom) started flashing.. I've currently using the in-famous "Towel trick" (Google it to see what I mean) and hopefully (by some miracle) the 360 will be fixed.. As I'm writing this I have noticed a few strange rather recent events whilst playing on the 360.. The most recent is whilst playing any game really the console crashes.. The screen sort of turns into a diagonal form of the game before it happened. However about and hour ago (if that) I left the 360 on and came to the computer and when I returned it had crashed on the marketplace blase (I had left it there) and it was just when I had finished a download as the little Icon saying "So and So has just been downloaded" was imprinted at the bottom and wasn't going. So like anyone else I just turned it off and left it to watch some normal TV.. Be Warned I have started shifting pictures from a little pen drive as my background wallpaper very recently and I'm not sure weather or not it ended up playing a part in the presence of the 3 Lights.. I'd say it's been about 3 minutes I've been writing this message I will write to you lot again shortly once I finish the "Towel Trick" and tell you what future actions I will have to take because of this... And all I can say is.. What a timing!! :damnit: Oh and last and probaly most important is a huge increase of useage for the pass couple of days aswell which is possibly had a factor aswell!! Also tips on what to do are nicely requested! Also past experiances would be nice.. EDIT----------- (After about 20 Minutes) Just removed the towel and and placed 360 ready to press the button. As I did the screen started up as normal for about a second at the most before cutting out and we have a result! My console is now only displaying 2 Red Lights instead of 3 (great).. I'll check back here in about 25 minutes I've just disconnected the power supply and am now letting the 360 cool down.. EDIT (x2)------------ (Aftermath) Well it appears that the internet has once again proved its worth and it seems all is well.. The temperature is back to normal it has started up and run normally before I turned it off (by choice) and I will keep in touch with this thread if problems arise).. ALSO: 1500 Post wOOt!!
