    Throw it out the window?

    How old is the console? MFR?

    If its under a year take it back to the shop and get them to replace it

    Kick it.

    this is what happened to my sons before the dreaded rrod kicked in

    hopefully its not that and someone here can give u some good advice!

    Send it back

    anyone retuned a 360 to a cataloge before?

    make it rrod with the towel trick, just keep an eye on it ie. dont leave it while you go to the pub

    Get a PS3

    Yup, yellow is a much better colour than red ;-)

    Having it RROD would actually be better.

    just called microsoft and they said to send it to them via website link etc so there guys can have a look at it, think its best to wait for it to get the red rings so that way they will know what the prob is alot faster,what do you guys think?

    bad move as you still have it under littlewoods warranty. it has a fault so LW are liable for the repair.

    or just wait until warranty runs out and it may not be RROD problem so you'll be paying!

    littlewoods told me to call that number,should i call littlewoods back up

    If you bought it less than 12 months ago, Littlewoods are obliged to swap it.

    If not, send it back to Microsoft (but if it hasnt got RROD yet, you'll be charged for the repair.

    If I were you, if it was purchased more than a year ago, I'd force the RROD & then send it back to Microsoft.
