1 Red Light
« on: November 05, 2008, 09:38:38 AM »
Just what I needed right before GOW2...

So last night playing Fable, the top half of my screen went all funny.  It was like white lines and I couldn't really see anything.  So I quit the game and went back to the dashboard.  Everything seemed OK.  I started Fable back up and the menus looked fine.  I get into the game and have the same problem.  I thought maybe it was the game, so I switched to Saints Row.  Same problem.  I turned it off and go on xbox.com to ask about it.  I went back to the xbox turned it on only to find 1 red light in the lower right corner.  There was no error code.  It just said Contact customer support.  The lady told gave me a couple things to try, so we'll see what happens.  I think I'll probably out of commision for a couple weeks.

Woody, that sucks. Hopefully your experience with customer service goes as well as mine (RROD) did. I sent it in on a Thursday and had a refurb'd unit the following Wednesday.

Good luck dude.

DAM!!  That sucks Woody!!  Does your warranty cover that?
I had the RROD 4 times already.....I ended up buying and elite and kept the other for back up just in case.  M$ should really fix this dam box already!!!!
You can always buy an arcade for $199.00...

From what I am reading it's not going to be covered on the extended warranty.  That warranty is for the 3 red lights only.  I'm going to try the couple things they asked me to try and I will update tonight.

Towel trick or just call back and say it RROD'ed.  Are they really testing 'em anymore or just throwing them on a pile and sending out refurbs?

sorry bro.  I was right there in your shoes this time last year so I feel your pain.  Hopefully it is very quick, but I know it is never quick enough.

Happened to me in Oct. of last year. Hope you get it back quickly. I know it sucks.

Is there anyone here that hasn't had to send at least one xbox back?

Well, we have 2. My original release 360 finally had RROD this year. My other 360 (purchased this year) hasn't had the RROD yet. The new one is part of the "good" HDMI batches supposedly. Time will tell I guess.

Keep making fun of me.  Someone made fun of me last night for not having an xbox.  A few hours later he got the RROD

I have had my launch 360 RROD and a 2 month old 360 still in shop for RROD. Hope to have it back Monday. Just picked up Gears 2. Now just need something to play it on. Son still won't let me on his.
