    Faulty XBox 360

    Hello everyone,

    my Xbox 360 (Premier) has come up with 4 red lights - my son put a promotional DVD in it and that's what caused it, now it doesn't work anymore and is out of warranty.

    Can anyone please advice if it has any value for spares?

    Many thanks

    DG, thanks for your reply. Yes we had it just over 3 years now, typical :roll:

    Check your tv cable connection

    4 red lights is an av signal issue iirc (which i almost certainly don't)

    Buy a PS3 :-)

    But seriously, if i was you, i'd eBay it. If it's out of warranty and you don't know how to fix it yourself, you don't have much of a choice but to salvage some cash.

    I suspect it'd still go for £40-50 on eBay and some clever chap might know how to fix it.

    4 red lights is not the rrod.
    4 red lights means it can't detect the av cable. make sure it hasn't come loose

    try unplugging the AV cable giving it a clean and plugging it back in before you try anything else

    Thanks guys for your replies, much appreciated.
    Will tell, ASK, hubby to check the cable :thumbsup:

    We have been very happy with it till this happened but of course if there is no recourse then I will replace with Playstation solely because of it being a Blueray reader apart from an addiction

    If is not the cable I'll put it in the FS section along with all the games acquired over the years!

    now the Xbox has 3 red lights and is out of warranty - it was a premium bundle. If I were to sell it for spares on the F/S Forum how much is it worth?

    before going down that route, it's usually worth giving one of these a try:

    ]RROD Kit

    they're very easy to fit and usually sort the problem.
