XBOX 360 Banned and 3 Red Lights, could i sell it?

This was banned the other week and a couple of days later it got one red light with the e79 error code which then went to 3 red lights. Took it apart and changed the heat sink thermal paste, started it up with no HDD on etc and it worked, put it back together with the HD on and i still had the 3 red lights! Took the HD off and it came to life!

Left it all arvo and decided to try it with the HD back on and it worked all day sunday.

Anyway from tues till 2day it has been freezing again and now it's got the 3 red lights.

Anyway it's the console minus the HD as my details, games, themes etc are still stored on it, comes with box, 2 controllers and after market headset.

Worth putting up or am i just wasting my time?

how will you get around the hdd profile corruption... I've seen a guide involving soldering which i'm having a bash at to dump the nand chip of the 360

Are you referring to the e79 error i originally got? i'm at a loss what is causing the 3 red lights tbh, i mean going from the initial one red light to 3 i originally thought it was a HD problem.

Just nipping out btw!

fwibb's its easy m8, im confident you will be able to do it dude.

Remember, read it 3 times!

As you only flash sectors back it doesnt matter if you get some errors, (as long as they are not the bit you need to change and flash back)

don't know about your dilemma I'm sorry to say, what dudey and i are talking about is if your consoles banned, you hard drive becomes corrupted, so you saying you'll sell the 360 but keep the hdd won't work, because as soon as you put that hdd in to another 360 it will say profile corrupted.

All gamesaves lost for the time being... the hack that dudey and i are talking about uncorrupts the hdd and the 360. Therefore I may have 1 console for online the other banned but "clean" so i can sap my hdd back and forth

boooo, ebay are rip offs, charging 10% for final sale fee, some people try to make 10% profit on there and end up at a loss because of rediculous fees, thank god for HotUKDeals
