Gutted. Thing is it just seems a bit ironic that ive just updated the 360's new software cos PES10 was asking me to. Halfway thru the game it freezes prompting the only solution to unplug. When I plugged it back in I got RROD.

I heard that its cos of overheating etc, but id say I only play on it an hours max per week. Yes the console is around 3 years old, but its not taken any real hammer.

Anything I can do?

if its under 3 years its free. if not, £70 - worthwhile to buy a new one.

The home fix-kits (ebay) are worth a go, but rarely last more than a couple of months

Suprisingly on that note, i fixed one of my friends last february, and it's been used 3+ hours a day and been strong ever since.

If its within 3 years since the manufacture date on the back of the console then 3 red lights is a free repair. Start the process now, if its shown the lights they will come up again. get it fixed while it still has the extended 3 red lights waranty

Think its actually 3 years from purchase date.

Only if you have the original reciept, which after 3 years is probably highly unlikely :P

I kept mine in a file as I bought the Call of Duty package which was old stock and they had just introduced the RROD 3 year warranty extension. Lucky I did as it packed up a few months back:whistling:

Bought kids a new one for xmas but every time we run the old one it works.
New one still in it's box.
