    I've had my 360 since the beginning of 07 and I go to turn it on today to play some Forza3. Red rings....AWESOME!!! FUCK! Is there anything I can do or am I just fucked? Like I said, I got my system in 07. So I would imagine that it's a bit late. I knew this was going to bite me in the ass since I was always telling people mine has not and will probably not ever red ring. Damn cocky me!

    Depends on when in 07, Red ring warranty is 3 years. Fill out the form and see what happens.

    i was contemplating getting rid of it anyway. only reason why i ever kept it was for exclusives that may be coming out that i may be wanting. still saddens me though. i don't even have the option to play it if i wanted to now. hopefully microsoft will send me a refurb or whatever they do.

    Definitely send it in for warranty. If all else fails you can do a temporary fix and sell it on craigslist :mamoru:.

    It's a temporary fix even if you send it in to Microsoft.

    yeah, first one i did i skimped on parts a bit and cost me 6 bucks and its been going for over a year. the others ive changed it up a bit and added a few extra washers to level the board out a bit more so it costs just a bit more. but still. shit works man :bigthumb:

    That's sad, dude. Hopefully they'll fix it for you, or you can do the xclamp thing.
