My Xbox 360 has the red ring of death?


I cleared out the vents, unplugged everything, and let it sit. It still doesn’t work. Should I get a new one?

  1. You shouldn’t buy a new one. Go to xbox.com and register your console if you haven’t already, you will need your Xbox 360’s serial number, this is located in the system blade, under console options, then under system info.

    Then go to (or stay on) xbox.com and click support at the top. Once that loads there should be a box on the right side of the page that says “Repair Agent” (this is under the “Xbox Live Status”). Click on “Xbox 360 Hardware: (console’s serial number). Then request a repair.

    If the “Request a repair” isn’t available you will have to call 1-800-4MY-XBOX (1-800-469-9269) and go from there, you will need the serial number, the phone number you registered your console with, as well as confirming your address.

  2. im sorry to hear that but no once the RROD is on the 360 that’s it the hardware is messed up. and no you shouldn’t get a new one because the same thing will happen and that’ll really annoy you like how it annoyed me.

    i recommend getting your money back and getting a playstation 3. because its better and all the games are coming out this year! i guarantee you will love it!

  3. you hav to send it to microsft

    call them and they will send you a box and packaging

    they will fix it or replace it for free if its still under waranty

    DO NOT use the towel trick

    its only a temperary fix

    the rings will come back

    it overheats your hardrive
