My Xbox 360 RROD on me last night but after a blew some of the dust from the inside it appears to be working fine now...Is this the beginning of the end for my Xbox? - I've had it since 2007.

The beginning of the end. They often die, work, die..........but ultimately give up the ghost after a couple of weeks.

It's under warranty for 3 years for the RROD, but if you have opened it it's not, if you have the ability to open and fix yourself it's quite easy to do, all you need to buy is some good quality "silver based thermal compound" £7.99 @ maplin, don't buy the repair kit as you don't need to, just use the original x clamps and reapply the compound it worked for me, have a look on YouTube for guides.

you can fix them easy... if it is RROD. I got a 360 with RROD for £20 and managed to fix it for a total of £6.

although i would say buy the repair kits (or if you can be arsked, go to the hardware store and buy the nuts and bolts on your own.. cheaper, but more hassle)...

the x-clamp is meant to apply uneven pressure on the processor..

£54 this was before I started using this forum. And realised you could get a second hand unit a lot cheaper.

I would suggest forcing it to RROD.

Then sending it off.

When its doing it time and time again.

Mine shows no video or audio just turns on and thats it.

£54 :O, and how would you force it to RROD?
Once you get it fixed it wont happen again would it?

I heard by shoving a towel round it and running it a full pelt for hours.

Should do the trick.

I suggest in your circumstance just to keep it on with the towel and hope for the best.

Give it.

http://www.obsessable.com/news/2009/04/14/xbox-360s-e74-error-gets-microsofts-rrod-warranty-coverage/

No but you can cause another error.

RRoD might be your only luck or paying for the other error to be fixed.

Might aswell take it to a shop if I wanna get it fixed?
What would I get for them for free if I were to have the RROD as they said iif I get it fixed for £78 they'd give me 1 year warranty on everything including accessories.

Also do you know what details they'll ask to transfer the console?

Screw that you could buy a new xbox for that.

RROD is free repair and they give you one months free live.

1 year warranty you can buy a new Arcade for £100 from head. And get a new wirless controller as well as a newer chipset in theory

Transfer from?

Also you could sell the faulty xbox £20 plus

Never got the details.
Well the local shops told me I can get it fixed for £35-50 and same day or next day.
Should I get it fixed through RROD?
