by on Oct.01, 2010, under Xbox


If you are heading towards an rrod error, you need to immediately fix the error. Xbox 360 rrod error is also known as red ring of death and if you notice three red lights flashing around the power button, you have an Xbox 360 rrod error and you need to quickly fix these errors. Before Xbox 360 rrod errors, some indications such a static sound, disc not readable message and weird screen graphic problems might also occur. If your console is facing any of the problems as mentioned above, you need to immediately fix these problems to avoid further damage to your gaming console.

Many people have common problem of Xbox 360 rrod and for fixing it and some of the fixing problem available at Internet are ridiculous and should never be used. I have heard from one of my friend that he was advised to wrap the console’s hard disc in a towel and then heat the unit for a fix period of time. It should never be done as it will not only damage the entire hard disc but you will have to replace the hard disc.

If the gaming console is under warranty period, immediately talk to Microsoft help line and ship your console to Microsoft but keep in mind one thing that you will have to wait at least 2 to 4 weeks to get back you Xbox 360 from Microsoft. If the warranty period of the console is over, you have two options and the first one is to repair the console yourself and the second one is to send the console to Microsoft and wait for 2 to 4 weeks period. In the later case, you will need to send $140 to Microsoft as repair fees and you will also have to bear the shipping charges. Here, in this case one more disadvantage is that your system can face similar problems in future and every time you will have to ship the machine to Microsoft and will also have to spend around $150 towards the service and shipping charges.
