ive got it.
can i fix it without ****ing up my xbox? or if i send of to microsft, how much will it cost, bear in mind mine is pre-owned, so its agood few years old.
anybody have any idea what i should do
google was full of people trying to sell me answers

Pre-owned, you say?

Warranty is non-transferable. You'll have to take it to a third party place to be fixed.

im not sur eon the details but he said hes fixed it 3 times, by taking everything out like unconnecting everything waiting a few hours and reconnecting

not sure though, he mighta bin BSing also i dont have an x box so i duinnnnno

my friend said he fixed his and then he bought one off ebay and fixed that.

personally i think he's bullshitting. you could give it to me to give to him if you want but i doubt you'll see your money or your xbox again.

My friend Matt got the RRoD, and he just turned off his xbox, left it for a couple of hours, then turned it back on and it was fine.

call MS, don't mention the pre-owned thing. They'll probably fix it, as long as the guy that had it b4 didn't register it

and slipknotrule, there IS NO WAY IN HELL ur gettin it.
your post did not convince ye trustworthy, especially the you wont get ur xbox back again bit

Apparently, 3 lights is that it's over-heated. Leave it for a while. :/
Going through websites and videos that boast about it fixing it would be a waste of time IMO.

I was with a friend and we were watching a video where a guy put the XBox in a black bin bag, left it turned on for 25 minutes. Then put it in the fridge for 20 minutes. It fixed it for a few weeks.

Rap it in a few towels, put it in your Airan cupboard for a few hours and it should be okay.

By Airan cupboard, i have no clue how to spell it. IT's the little cupboard thing with ya boiler in it =] Usually in a bedroom?

it could just be overheating so turn it off for a few hours or all four red lights on means that the console cant detect its AV cable.

I just did mine dude.

Ring up xbox and literally just say that you have the warranty and they don't question, mine was over one year old. I just rang up UPS to pick it up.

Don't be scared to do it, it's really easy, and you get it back in a couple of weeks
#17
^^ they made me wait 9 weeks, but i think that was only because it was right after Christmas

It costs $90 to repair, $200 for a new one.

Dayum. Bad time, proabably. My mate got it back within the week, and another had it guaranteed within 3 weeks, he rang them up after 22 days and they gave him a free controller, so I've only reaaally heard good things.
#21
This happened to me, and when I rang up, they said that if you get the 3 red lights you get 3 years extra warranty, so I was able to send it in, and I got a months free xbox live gold too. It probably just depends if the guy before you got the 3 red lights too
#22
My roommate's just red ringed... he called, and they are fixing it for him... dunno how long that'll take. but here... he looked at this, different lights on the ring diagnose different issues... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_ring_of_death


so if its just 3 of the 4 segments, basically you need to have it repaired. That's what happened to my roommates...

I delivered my xbox for service on a thursday (DHL car came and picked it up.) I got it back next tuesday. But this was in europe. Another option is that you call xbox support. They send you a box which you put your xbox in (without hdd and power support) and send it back.

My box never arrived, that's why dhl came and picked up the machine. It was sent from Norway to the Czech Republic. which took 4 working days.
