Now first, calm down, I love Rhoads style guitars!!! (for all you gut instinct-ers )

But my xbox360 (which I actually got from here) is finally starting to get the RED RINGS OF DEATH. I guess it's not completely dead yet because if I turn it off and turn it back on, it still runs. Suuuuuper slow though. I'm playing NHL '09 and Gary Thorne is play-by-playing about 10 seconds after the play actually happens lol. It's pretty old (2005?) so it's probably not still under warranty, right? And also...I remember a while back seeing on the local CL someone posted an ad saying they can fix the rrod for $50. There any merit in that?

Phone Microsoft with your xbox serial code, they might be nice and fix it for free outside of warranty if it's a particular model.

Joking. But seriously, get one.

Contact Microsoft, you should be able to get it repaired.
My friend also overheats his with a towel, and RRoD goes away for a few days.

You bought an Xbox 360 from UG?

I've heard it costs in the ballpark of $120 to get it repaired outside the warranty. Is that true? Unless I get lucky..

Oh, you're out of warranty?
Remember MS warranty is for 5 years IIRC.

my console is an '05 too, and it was fixed for no cost at all. MS admits the problem and has extended the warranty. Try it with them first, then think about going to see some 'DIY' fellow.

You could get Microsoft to fix it for a small fee and go without your xbox for a week or so and IT WILL happen again believe me.
Or you can simply buy an arcade xbox 360, which has the new processor which won't red ring and a nice new quieter disc drive
Plus you get a new controller all for just over $150 US it's worth it, not having to ever worry about the red ring.
I love white guitars!

the xbox360 console has a hardware malfunction prevalent in older consoles (produced from '05 to '08).

When this error occurs, the circular light on the front panel lights up red in 3 of it's 4 quadrants , therefore called: the red ring of death, or: RROD.

Users that experience this usually also experience the microsoft helpdesk, and subsequent frustrating issues.

And I dont do it nicely either. I boiled a slug in highly saturated salt water and put a wasp in a microwave. I hate wasps so much.

Bollocks to this, my ps3 broke, just plain freezes after 10 mins of being switched on.

You don't need a warranty for RROD, since it's the manufacturer's fault. Call up Microsoft and they'll get a courier to take it away, and you'll either get a repaired one or a brand new one. I got a brand new one when mine RROD'd, and you won't have to pay a penny.

You think that's bad?
My PS3 had YLOD. All fixed now though.

And in case you can't tell, I was joking with him.
