    First: Towel Trick
    Second: Call MS, demand a Box
    Third: Use said box if ever sent and send it to them
    Fourth:Be bored for a month+
    Fith:New or your old Refurbished 360 and be happy

    Other Option, just Buy a new Arcade Model and drop in the HDD, or upgrade to a Elite.

    Another casualty of the RROD.

    There really isn't much you can do about it, except call Microsoft and send if off for repair, free of charge.

    It's strikes me weird that in this day and age someone would refer to the RROD this way. It's surreal. It's like someone saying... "So the other day, I lit a match near my car while I was pouring gasoline, and the match fell near the gas fumes and everything lit up in this strange glowing redish dancing substance that was extremely hot to the touch."

    Mine just died today and I called up Microsoft. Except for the weird way the guy talked on the phone, it was pretty painless setting up the system for repair. Now I just have to wait for the box to send me.

    Kinda sucks though that since I live right outside of and work in Redmond, I just can't take it to somewhere in Microsoft to have it serviced.

    why the fuck havent microsoft STILL fixed this problem yet? i cant be the only upset person about this because ive had the RROD 3 times now! i dont understand how the 1st xbox was a good piece of kit yet the xbox360 is a pile of shite...honestly every time i turn it on its like 'close your eyes and prey it works' moment.

    How come its been almost 2 years nearly and Microsoft have yet to fix the damn problem! seriously it has to be costing them a fortune to fix all these pieces of crap. The only reason people are buying them is because they cost more than a ps3. Wait afew years till the ps3 price falls and then watch everyone hurry up and buy one. Its kinda odd because originally it was sonys ps2 that was faulty and xbox was superiour......now its the ps3 thats better built and the 360 that cocks up all the time

    yes and you can w00t again in another 3 months (if your lucky) when it dies AGAIN and you have to send it back AGAIN and then wait ANOTHER MONTH AGAIN.

    Ive lost all faith in microsoft, i got the rrod 3 times in a damn row so i sold my elite 2 weeks ago and am trying to save for a modded ps3 since theres hardly any reports of faults with them. but that might be because not many people can afford them right now since sony are charging a bomb for them

    hahahaha, quite possibly the best analogy ever!

    Sorry to hear about your box, man. Mine has had the RROD 2 but has recovered after power cycling each time. I know it's death is coming, I'm just waiting it out with GTA 4.
