Default Rrod

OK guys, like many many others....(5 DAYS BEFORE NCAA COMES OUT)...and last night i get the RROD...bullshit yes! ive been good for about a year and a half now, maybe two years, but last night, i got the lights...these consoles are sweet but built SOOOO SHITTTY...what kind of bullshit is this? crazy.

this is soo common that the 1 800 4 my xbox has specific options for the repairs...that is rediculous.

What is the avg lead time to get your box back repaired?

Also, I unplugged it to get the SN off the back, plugged it back in and was able to get in two games with NO problem....will this continue to be a problem and should i start the repair process NOW even though it seems to be working fine for the time being???

well for starters, get rid of that pic because it doesn't do you any justice. lol second, yes it will continue to happen. it is bound to happen to you again sooner or later ain't no escaping it. be prepared to be without a 360 for a week or so. in that case, buy another 360 used on the side or buy a wii or ps3 to keep you busy while it is off to be repaired. do remember that when you send it in you get another 360 not the one you sent in. at this rate, they have so many 360's being sent in for repair so keep tabs of what is going on and check frequently with them to make sure they are working on it. I had a friend send in his elite and in return they sent him a cord back. yeah..pretty strange. weird things do happen and don't know who is in charge of shipping back the consoles but they aren't the brightest ones out the crayon box. good luck!

Just buy a core 360 and use the hard drive from your bad 360 since you need to remove the hard drive before you ship it.

When you get the repaired one back, either keep it and put it on another HD set, or sell it to someone. I have a 360 for each HD set I have so I don't need to move the system from room to room.
