    My 360 died tonight. Was playing a game and the video output started to look very degraded. Shut down the 360 and restarted it. Now nothing will display. Tried my VGA cables as well. No luck. Looks like my video output has gone kaput. Now I need to find out if this is covered under the extended warranty. If not, I'm screwed. Can't afford to fix it or replace it.

    You're not getting the red ring? If not you might have a problem. Podcats I listen to (Cranky Gamers U.K.) the co-host had his graphic processor blow out and once his warranty had expired they wouldn't fix it free.

    No red rings. And yeah, I see that lots of people have had this problem in the past and had to pay to have it fixed. Fuck.

    I might just up and get rid of all my 360 shit and be done with it for good.

    Mine died on Monday. Right after the update for Rockband was downloaded. I got the 3LOD and cant even boot it up. Just have to get it all together and off to Best Buy I go.

    I feel for you. I had the red ring a few months ago. Living with out an x-box is a challenge.

    Thankfully (I guess?) I had the red rings. It's been less than 2 weeks, and MS has sent the new 360 on it's way. UPS says delivery date of the 10th.

    Sorry Joe :(

    Another question, when you turn it on dose it power up but not have any video coming out? Like can you still here the start up sounds and the dashboard menus when you move the control around? Or is it totally dead and not even lighting up?

    That sucks. Maybe you should leave it on, in a hot room and make it RR. Try your best to Red Ring that sucker.

    Did you try hooking up with a different set of cables?

    Try the Xbox support page and see if they will cover you if not you can try like Gnaw said and try and force a red ring then they will be sure to fix you up.

    I have 2 different sets of cables. Hooked it up to my monitor as well as my TV. No video or audio on either setup.

    Force the RROD on it. Wrap the SOB in a towel with it running until it goes red.

    If you try to force a ring out take your hard drive off first.

    The funny thing is when mine ringed I hadn't turned it on for over 10 hours and the last time I used it I had it on for less then an hour and a half.

    Hmm... maybe I was thinking of someone else then.

    Might be ready to give you the RRoD, mine started acting up a week before it went. Started freezing up and not loading games

    I'm about to get my 3rd repaired unit in something like 10 months of ownership. Microsoft can eat me, forever. Such a waste of money this thing was...
