My 360 has just got the flashing red lights all the way round.I was going to send it to microsoft, the thing is its been flashed, however there are no signs of tampering anywhere to what i can see.Has anybody been successful sending one back like this, and worst case scenerio if they relise what will the outcome be?

#2
all 4 are flashing but the top right corner is lighter than the rest, unless it is three only and giving that impression

[CENTER][SIZE="4"]seems to me to you have the 3rings of death.:x
a quick fix is but 3 towels around the console for 30 mins swithed on with no game inside ok
then after 30mins has passed switch it off for 5mins then hey presto it will work ok
also all xbox`s upto 3yrs old can be fixwed/replaced by this november by micro/xbox.
give them a call for free on 0800 587 1102
but if ya boxed ihas been flashed then maybe not unless ya buy new seal`s that have been broken ok
i hope this helps.[/SIZE]:whistling:[/CENTER]

Have a look here:

It might be able to solve your problem, but if not, it should give you an indication as to what is wrong.

thanks both of you for your replys

my sons had this and we bought a kit from ebay, used it to remove x clamps and put in thermal stuff and never had a problem since.
#7
If its been opened then there is a sticker which has to be broken in order to do so. If thats been replaced then you should be alright, but if it hasn't then they'll know you've opened it.

#18

#19
shoddy job that
#20
fleybay sell stickers would it be worth it or will they still check the firmware? the sticker is a bit flacky but its 2 years old or is it because its stuck on bent.If i give it a go anyway does anybody no the return bill microsoft give you if they decline it
#21
I will sell you a sticker, £5 inc p&p. all depends really on how noticeable the opening holes are on the rear of the console (are there any marks around where the tool fits in to release the case?) Also i wouldn't send back unless the firmware of the drive was flashed back to original firmware. But i have a sticker here if interested. :thumbsup:

:-D... Thats not the best bit .... I've also burned out the fans which came with it... so had to use a adhoc methord of sticking the wires from the PC fans into a laptop power brick.... now the good news is, is that said brick comes with voltage options. so i can turn the fans of the speed up and down at will. .... :-D good for watching films now...

sorry to bump an old thread, but i sent the console back to microsoft anyway and i got a replacement, maybe i got lucky or maybe they just have too many to keep checking.If someone else in same situation i was its worth a try

Sweet, nice one with a good result.

Someone may have said this already but 4 lights means you ain't got the av cable plugged in properly or its a broken cable, maybe the port. If mentioned already .Sorry :lol
