I believe my 360 is Dying

semi-related (lost planet)

I believe i'm on my way to my 4th 360, because when playing crackdown, you get the usual 360 (aeroplane in the distance) sound, but after a while of playing my 360 gives up... 360 goes almost silent and the ingame graphics go what can only be discribed as tits up... did amuse me though first time it happened so whilst it was doing it i took a vid with my phone - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XzjS1u2fX1w view here

Dodgey cam cos i was playing the game one handed lol


Just thought I'd start a thread for the above post i made in another thread.

Not sure if its a flaw with the game or my 360 is going to silicon hell soon

I've no idea but there was some discussion about the Red light of death on amazon or play reviews. Maybe this is the same thing?

Thats really strange.I have a similar problem but not as bad.
On mine the draw distance isnt as good as it used to be on games,

Eg on Rainbow six,sometimes i would go in a room and the textures were not detailed then it would takes about 4 seconds then they change to detailed

Another example is on oblivion.My draw distance seems to have reduced.Like if im walking in th grass i can see the grass not far infront of me poping up as i walk fowards

Dont worry your coverd by the 3 year warrenty
#4
its only a *looks for receipt* <5 month old console...

not sure if its just crackdown or not yet though, will give it a good testing tomorrow or thursday on another game
#5
If it continues to go strange on other games I will take it back and get yet another replacement
#6
And that's your third one?? That's terrible!
#7
ahuh both the 360 and the power brick are well ventilated...

thinking if i took it back would I get the price I originaly paid for it, if i said i wanted my money back, I paid £279 in July of last year, now If I got that cash back, I could get an Elite, except it will look out of place because everything under my tv is white, even my pioneers are white
#8
Where did you get it from? You should get the price you paid for it back if you have the receipt!

Or you could get a pro that's replacing the premium so you still get your hdmi connection... Think most places are getting rid of their premiums just now & I haven't actually seen any pro 360's but I'm sure they're about somewhere :)

I used a promo code tho at the time so only paid £236...

*goes to swot up on the pro 360

Oh right, I think you'd only get back what you paid for it then :)

*sadiebabes hopes she's right about the pro* :giggle:

Still on my 1st 360 & had one of the 1st - play it all the time too :)
#12
is it called 360 pro cos searching that all i find is the premium...

but if you search 360 premium hdmi then, I can find some info.

With this 360 I get...

On R6V = Could not Read Disc (sometimes two to three times an evening)
On Lost Planet = when playing single player and I complete a mission, majority of the time it crashes whilst saving
On Bioshock = It froze when going from one vending machine straight to an adam machine (think thats right)...

theres more but think you get the picture
#13
From what I've read the premium is just being rebranded as the pro but has hdmi connection...

Sounds like it's on it's way out unfortunately :/ Sowwy fwibble :-(

could be tempting fate doing that, you may have one of the rare live forever xbox 360's and if you replace it you may get one that lasts 2 months, my first 360 lasted 7 months, 2nd 360 bout 2 months this one I have now is 5 months old is digging its own grave i believe
#16
Mine is 5 months old, Starting to make some strange grinding and clicking noises (the clicks are when switched off like its cooling down.) is also very lightly scratching the discs!
