The lights are on
My Xbox RROD'd for the second time recently, and unfortunately xbox will not fix it for free anymore.
And I'm sick of doing the Towel trick. xD.
What? How much is the repair?
Did they give you a reason why?
just play the xbox. if it's going to break, it's going to break. nothing you can really do to prevent it.
obviously, keeping it in a well ventilated area is good. but seriously, if it's going to overheat, it will happen. just a matter of when.
i got the RRoD 2 times. last time it happened was 2 years ago.
and there is a fan that the xbox sits on if you stand it vertically. it's like a stand/holder for the xbox, and it has two fans...it blows air the way it's supposed to....and not into the rear of the machine like most cooling fans do.
but i don't even use the fan anymore.
don't do the towel trick. and don't think that keeping the heat off will help either. don't worry about milk crates, or setting up office fans.
just keep the thing out, and not tucked away in some small entertainment stand shelf, and play the thing.
the more you worry about it, the less you can enjoy the games.
I must agree it does cause alot of anxiety, but if my tricks help the fear why not do them?
Just give your 360 lots of "breathing room" and make sure it does not get too dusty Other than that just pray that it doesn't get the ring.
