before i was getting the e73 error. Did the towel trick and it worked again for about a week.
did it again tonight, towelled it.

Now after let it cool completely (before anyone says :P) it has a full flashing red circle and the green centre light is on, all cables are connected properly etc etc.

whats up with it, is there anything i can do? should i just buy a new xbox?
(im considering the £140 deal with the WEP, the saboteur and L4D2)

wrap the box in towels 'till it overheats.

I was considering it as i really like the idea of blu ray and the interface, however i have all my xbox peripherals + games.

Not to mention i HATE the PS controller, its just horrible.

Its dead dude. The towel "trick" causes as many problems as it solves. Could try a 3rrod fix (ebay) but its only delaying the inevitable I'm afraid

as ive said i would consider it if i didnt have to replace all my games, my guitar hero world tour set, not to mention its not far of twice as expensive and as stated the controller sucks ass.

i would love the interface and the bluray though :/
