Do a drive-by just in case.


Also try the thermal paste thing/w.e. I dont know much about the xbox internals since ive never owned one, but this definitely sounds like an overheating issue they are quite known for. No reason there shouldn't be a way to mod it to compensate for this.

:lol:Don't think a drive-by is necessary over an XBox & wont make much of a difference
There's enough ignorance and violence in the ghetto already

I don't know much about electronics but the overheating issue sounds quite plausible and I'd say the little TEK given above is worth a try:thumbup:

sorry dude.. i dont know why you would have bought it from some sketchy dude in the first place.

$30 more and you could have bought a refurb one from bestbuy that actually has a return policy.

yah used electronics are usually always a bad deal, unless it has some sort of warranty/return policy.

I would start tracing all forms of communication you had with him to find him again, unless of course he is bigger than you.

replace the x-clamps and put on better thermal paste.. then do the towel trick to reset it

uh probably might cost like $20 and its a 50%

but it might be worth a try

open it up before and make sure its not been done before

if you get it to work for 5 minutes turn it off and go to game stop to get some money back




Mine just got the 3 red rings of death, but it only showed one time now when I get into a game it freezes in a matter of seconds. Does this method you described work for this problem?

I'm going to answer yes, what you have is commonly what happens before you get the RROD for good

yeah i had one that did that same thing..

im pretty sure thats the gpu over heating


get an error code off the xbxo.. hold the sync while pressing eject four times (4 lights = 0) so an example would be: 0230 (theres never a 4 in an error code)

google: xbox 360 error code (your code)

0022 (most of them) needs a machine to take off the gpu to make a new solder ball (15000$ machine) you can fix them temperamentally sometimes and if you do cash that shit in before it fucks you

So I opened her up and it looks like the mod has not been installed yet, but when I took the heatsinks off it's pretty clear someone was messing with it. It looks like they put new thermal paste and used the old screws and X-clamps??

:shrug: What should I do?

not saying the guy didnt fuck you over, but I once had a 360 that I bought refurbished from gamestop. I played it for about 6 months then decided to trade it for some dank. as soon as the guy I gave it to plugged it in it wouldnt work. I love xbox but they made these things so shitty its unbelievable.

You can fix almost any xbox problem yourself and pretty easily. It wont cost more than 30 or so bucks for tools and nuts/bolts etc. just google. Shits easy.

I don't think they were trying to mod it they were just trying to fix the red ring of death problem. basically the soldering over heated and melted down so he attempted to fix it by replacing the joints with the x clamps and was to stupid to do it correctly.

I would have to know the exact problem of the xbox. Ive never had to drill anything.


If you don't trust yourself you cans end it to http://www.360-pros.com/%28X%281%29S%28vsklvpz2mo0naprixqsjzi45%29%29/xbox-360-repair-service.aspx?AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1

It will cost anywhere from 60 to $90 no more and that includes shipping. Plus they will have it back in a matter of days.

I'd say the problem is a shitty ass job putting the heatsinks back on the xbox when these fools tried to fix the rrod

Can you post pics?

I suggest going through the tutorial on fixing an rrod step by step(not that towel trick shit) They might have been stupid enough to destroy it in the process for you to repair.

He probably did the towel trick which lets it run for a period of time and then rrods again till its shit. Over time the non rrod period gets shorter and shorter. Once he ahd it temporarily running he let you play.
