My bro's 360 just died. Woo!

Anyway I was suggesting to him that you could possibly get a refurb one for free from Microsoft if you were to Stick a spoon into both 360 fans and then wait for an RROD?

Would that actually work lol?

:-D

The problem is that after a few seconds of it being on it will freeze and you'll get some pixels in the wrong place (in clusters) hehe loL!

Most of the time microsoft just treat all faulty 360's as RROD, just ring them up and tell them it it.
Give it a few days mind and it probably will develop the RROD.
3 times it's happened to me, and they were all preceded by general sluggishness, and pixels all over the place.

The fault sounds like you GPU that's gone. Different to RROD.

You could try reporting it as a 3 RROD and see what happens. Worst case is they'll return it un-repaired.

BTW - I'm on my 5th Xbox360 :whistling:

It already has started to RROD just lol!

COnsidering it was one of the late 2005/ early 2006 models its lasted quite a good while.... heh e:thumbsup:

Never give MS the real problem, always says its RROD that way you will defo get a free repair. They never ask questions as long as you mention 3 segents RROD

You can get the ring of death by simply keeping on pressing the eject a disc button on the front of the console

So it just started RROD?
Do i get a prize?
