    sorry, i tried looking through some old threads but i couldn't find a really good answer to my problem. i started up my 360 after not playing for a few days and it has 2 flashing red lights (top left and bottom right quadrants). basically, it'll cost $100 for M$ to repair this (warranty expired), but i know 3 flashing red lights will be free since i've had the console for less than 3 years. anyway, isn't there a trick to "force" it to RROD so it'll display 3 red lights and i can get it repaired for free?

    Wrap it in a towel and run it for 30 minutes. It'll overheat and rrod.

    Then keep it wrapped in a towel, attach a house brick and throw it in the river

    thanks, i just did this and sure enough it RROD'd. then i turned it back on and it's working normal again. i have a feeling it'll die again in a few days though. what a POS this machine is.

    Just sell it to someone on Craigslist for $60 and buy a new one.

    My Xbox just recently 2 ringed, you dont have to go through the towel hassle and such. All I did was send it in as a 3 ring, and left a note inside the box, saying it switches from 2 rings to 3 rings on occasion. What are they gonna do, sit there for 6 hours turning it on and off til it 3 rings? Just got notice they repaired it for free, and they are shipping it back now.
