Mine is still working. The wife is hogging it at the moment.

He's currently on a backpacking trip to a lake with the rest of his scout troop.

Just got his grades. He stayed on the honor roll all year.

I think he's doing all right.

Anyway, you guys are being a little vague with your fix descriptions. Can ya be a little more specific?

I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't let you play that.
Link Posted: 6/4/2010 6:09:57 PM EDT
I feel for you.  I got the RROD about 6 months ago.  Don't do the self fix, it's temporary, and will void your warranty.  I won my X-Box in a drawing while I was leaving Iraq the last time, so I didn't have a warranty.  Cost me $75 to get it fixed, and it took about a week and a half.  Well worth it.

get out and get some sunshine, your mom would appreciate it

Link Posted: 6/4/2010 6:17:57 PM EDT
We've had the RROD 2 times and a video error that wouldn't clear.  Took it into Best Buy and walked out with a brand new replacement each time. (extended warranty certainly paid off and they carried the warranty over on each of the new ones)

We ended up buying a cooling fan that attaches to the back and no issues for over a year now.

Between my 19 year old and 14 year old that thing gets some serious use.

I had two RRODs on 2 machines within 2 months. Gave up on the platform. May get another sometime, since I have a few games collecting dust.

I have had 3 RROD's and the newer system got RROD faster then the older ones. MS sent me an older system as a replacement. FU MS!!!!! POS!!!!! If it wasnt for MW2 I wouldnt own this POS system.
Link Posted: 6/4/2010 6:24:06 PM EDT
Mine did this last year.  Send it into their repair facility and they'll have it back to you in a week or two.  My repair was free, even though it was out of warranty by at least a year or two.  

Forget the wrap-it-in-a-blanket temporary fixes.

Your box needs a Re-Balling!!

Good for your son.  But he's not the norm.  Speaks well to his upbringing.

RROD = something that pissed you off that you can shoot at
Link Posted: 6/4/2010 8:05:52 PM EDT
If it's out of warranty, it's a pretty easy fix.



Just youtube "RROD fix".



If you're a girly man, you could just pay somebody $50 to do it.
