    Im thinking buying a 360 for pretty cheap. The catch? It has the 3 red light error should i go through with it?
     
  2. arent there ways of reformating it to get rid of that ring of death? like what mitch did when his mom messed around with the fuctions or wtvr?

    if it can be fixed then sure why not.

    Its modded so its got no warranty some people in toronto said theyed fix it for $40 and there are severel methods ive researched, i also know what causes it, the cheap solder that MS used in the early versions of the 360.
     
  4. sounds promising....but even after the ring of death, the waranty is still voided :(

    how much is he charging you for the whole set up?

    well for me all i had to do was turn it on and wrap it in a towel for an hour making sure no heat escaped from it and then turn it off and let it cool for an hour and it started working again. if you can, ask him to get the hidden 4 digit error code. here is how you get it and what the codes mean:

    I hear about that mitch, what it does is re-aplly the soder but it can also fry the mother boared thats why im leaning towards getting it re-sodered for 40 and if i do i will do that half cash thing.

    i doubt it has anything to do with solder seeing as how the lowest heat solder melts at 375F (190C). if my xbox did get that hot. it would be dead forever lol

    Microsoft and their errors... lol... even on their console :lol: :lol: You guys need to try Linux Ubuntu... it rules. With the Beryl Manager, the damn "wow" of Vista is just junk....

    Sry for the off topic, thought.

    I say the whole thing is worth it for a grand total of 160. Especially if the problem can be solved, in which case you would be getting a good deal.

    Hi I had the 3 red light error - error 0102. I had it for a bit more than a year so the warranty was over. First the Xbox 360 was a little weird didn't want to turn on and then the 3 lights appeared and I could do anything. Luckily I found a great tech support site that had solutions for many problems!!! I found the solution I needed and now it works great, I hope it will last.
    They also have free live chat support if anyone need it.

    Here is the page for Xbox 360 Support

    I am sure it will help all of you with Xbox problems!!!
