How many of you have tried the "towel trick" on a dead xbox360?? And how long did the fix work, if it did??
#2
Haven't tried it, but my friend did it and it worked for another week or summat.

That the world, that the world
Had just one

And my fingers were around it

I tried it, it works for a few weeks but then all goes horribly wrong. Basically your console melts together inside, and nothing works. Just send it to get repaired if it is 3 red lights, much cheaper than a new 360.

Also, here in the UK there is a 3 year warranty for 3 red light fixes (free for 3 years), might be the same in the US.

it only lasts for a week or so, send it in while you can.

if you have the red rings of death, send it to microsoft for free.
you could bring it to a computer type store, but they wont do it for free.

Oh yeah, and if guitar hero got you into the guitar? you're really playing for the wrong reasons.

there is no wrong reason to play a guitar, except for world enslavement and extermination of certain races, but those guys never make it big anyway.

Don't play with wet towels, if you do make sure you have something covering your testicles.

...oh, yeah friend tried it and it worked for a bit longer.

don't send it to microsoft. they've given me nothing but hell twice now.
i STILL don't have my xbox back and i sent it in feb. 11th. they keep giving me the runaround, lying to me about my xbox status, and won't return it to me. almost the same thing happened to me last year the FIRST time i sent in their purposefully defective product.

What's the towel trick?


turn it on, cover it in towels for about 10-20 minutes. It melts some of the sodering back together, usually fixes whatever is broken. However, after a week or so, it starts to really screw with the 360. The towel tricks true usefullness is if you dont have the red rings of death. B/c microsoft only covers the red rings of death on the warranty, the towel trick can be used to go from a random problem not covered by warranty plauging the 360, to a red ring of death warranty covered issue.

thats exactly why I would just prefer to take it to a local shop. I got it for free anyways cuz my bro bought a ps3. So I don't mind paying for the repair.

my xbox broke and i did the towel trick and it only lasts for about a day. Try googlizing "xbox penny trick". I did that and its worked fine ever since.

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

My 360's gpu overheated after playing GTA IV for about an hour. Apparently they have to send you a box just so you can send it back to them. I came home to a box that looked like it was involved in the Running of the Bulls.

Wow, I'm noticing an increase in threads regarding 360's breaking. Are PS3's better?

Probably in reliability. Apparently, Microsoft has wisened up and is now making the Xbox's with better quality parts
