    I can see 3 occasions there a noob could easily fuck their shit up :mamoru:

    If that works for most of them that is a piece of piss though. What about reflowing the solder joints though which a lot of guides suggest.

    most of the time, the extra pressure itself will do the fix.

    My 360 was manufactured in october 05, purchased in may 06 and is still kicking. I did have a feeling it was ready to go so when I opened it up to mod it I did the Xclamp stuff.

    piss poor design coupled with shitty thermal paste that dries out. the ps3 has the same problem except the design is slightly less cramped so it always happens out of warranty.

    elite doesn't mean shit. just means the box you are sending back is black instead of white. it happened to my friend's elite too so no one is safe.

    $40 locally. But for OTers, just pay for parts and shipping. Probably like $20 I guess?

    M$ is sending me the box to ship it in. my main error is "E71" -- i get this screen when i turn my shit on or when the disc drive begins to read a CD/DVD. red lights vary: 4th ring flashes red, 3 rings flash, and sometimes all four :ugh2:

    but according to my repair request, i marked the 3RRoD option.. so if their process doesn't fix my goddamn xbox regarding the error(s) listed above, i'll hit u up
