    how to fix red ring of doom

    hey, first time in 360 forums, so don't be suprised if i say something stupid or noobish. but anyway a way to repair your 360 if it gets the red ring of doom (without sending it back or breaking it open) is i think, turn it off for 12 minutes then, wrap towels around it for 15 minutes.... and presto! it should work....i think, im very tired and lazy and can't be bothered checking but just in case there should be a video on you tube if you want too see it work, type in 'towel trick' in search, if this dosn't work i'm sorry just thought i would share this with you. (im using wii browser so i cant retreive link.)

    i tried the towel thing, worked for 5 minutes. your best bet is sending it back as soon as possible, so u can get it back before christmas, sorry to break the bad news to you, but it will take a month

    ive read that some people use the towel thing and it works for like a week, but what good is that? what if your in the middle of a game and it just freezes without it being saved? i hate how unstable 360 is, i really regret buying one, i am still waiting for my 2nd one to get back from repairs im getting more and more angry by the hour

    I've had mine since launch and it's still going strong

    It's fun to play but I can see why everyone get's so pissed off. What do you expect? It's Micro$oft. Just look at the poor job they did with Vista and the frequent crashes and BLue Screen Of Death's they had with every Windows operating system.

    this is exactly why we are so pissed off, we spent money on vista, win98, win millenium, and even xp, and now xbox and they all have some sort of major problem, i've never had any problems with nintendo or sony..

    Basically the towel trick by getting the Xbox 360 to a very very high temp to get the chips to reset themselves.

    It is a temporary fix (a few mins to a few days) that probably causes more problems that is solves in the long term of that unit.
