Also question, If you RROD with a first edition xbox360, to they replace it with a newer one with the HDMI port & the part that (supposedly) doesn't warp over time?

well the first two times I sent one they sent back the same console repaired, this was an early model premium.

This latest is actually a newer arcade I got with a mobile phone plan, the premium is still working though...for now

Twice so far.

Apparently on the 3rd time they replace it with the HMDI version.

I thought i had it for a 3rd time a month ago but it was the 4 rings of death meaning it was just the power supply playing up :(

None, but I've used my 360 probably a total of 10-20 hours? since I bought it a couple of years ago. I try to play it but then I hear the siren song of my PC calling me, luring me in to the depths of the abyss.

Had mine for over a year now and it's running fine. Although I only use it for guitar hero and that's hardly ever. Expensive paper weight.

My old one gets it now but I have a new one so I don't care. Plus we managed to work out what was wrong with the old one and now it works again, amusing.

Mine did it a few weeks ago, but I've had it for about 3 years and used it a s***load over that time, so I'm suprised it didn't happen sooner. Wrapped it in some towels and let it run for 20 minutes and that "fixed" it, but I'd assume its only a matter of time before it happens again.

I was just reading about this not more then 2 mins ago.

Apparently the main reason that the 360 RROD's is this crappy X-Clamp they use to bolt the heats sinks onto the CPU/GPU. The way they spread their force causes the motherboard to flex up. Given time and a bit of heat the solder points around the GPU or CPU start to melt and the warping causes the connection to break.

The Towel trick helps by melting the solder points back and hopefully make a connection. The warping of the Mobo still exists though.

Extensive X-Clamp Fix is an excellent explanation and fix for the root causes of RROD. Check it out.

There are easier fixes, but this is the most comprehensive.

Just happened on the weekend.

360 is only 14 months old too and one of the 'new' supposedly 'rrod-free' models (hdmi whatever).

Sent it for repair on Monday...

I'm on my third xbox. They have replaced the first two. My first one went RROD after the first 5days, so I replaced it in store. Second one took 6 months and had the replacement for it about 18months now. The units with the older manufacture date are the problem. Still given that you can get an arcade now for under $300 its not such a big deal to replace the whole thing.

Once. Mine's an old model premium, and they just repaired it, they didn't replace mine. I wanted a HDMI 360. :(

my first 360 which i got at launch rrod about a year after i got it,
once returned it rrod again 2 weeks later. (in saying that this was well before microsoft stated that the rrod was a common problem (even though eveyrone knew it was))
after that i flashed the dvd drive to play backups cause the first time it rrod it would scratch legitimate discs...

about 2 months ago that console dvd drive finally died... appears the motor in the dvd drive carked it as it wouldnt spin a disc.

i have a 2nd 360 and ive had it just under a year and i havent had a problem with it.
