    Xbox playing up..

    Right...
    Basically i have at least a 4 year old xbox 'premium' which has been sent for RRoD at least 3 times...(will this be recorded?)
    Now it occasionally does red ring, but after re-starting the console it plays fine...up until recently...
    now after about 20 mins of playing, the xbox feezes and starts making a weird "er-er-er" sound, as about 4 vertical lines of colour flash down the screen (xbox picture is frozen though)

    does anybody have any idea what the problem is?
    and more importantly the best way of tackling the issue?

    currently i believe my options to be: -
    1/ send it to microsoft as RRoD
    2/artificially RRoD and do the above
    3/ buy a new xbox...

    discuss..

    surely warranty doesn't end for rrod?

    4 years old, well have to say you've had your money out of that one!
    Im no xbox guru but if that was me 100% invest in a replacement.

    Buy new one.

    im sur RRD is only covered for 3 years (correct me if im wrong).
    if your on a buget,get a used 360 of fleabay or here for about £50-£70.just swap the hard drives over,and sell the one you inherit and you get a bit of cash back too.
    thats what id do personally

    rrod is definatly only 3 years, all other faults is 1 year but microsoft increased the warrenty only to 3 years for rrod due to the problems

    mine was out of warranty aswell was going buy a new one but i tried the penny trick and got another 1 years out of it heres the link
