I was just wondering if anyone knows where to find a free site on how to fix the xbow 360 3 blinking red lights. Or if anyone has any tips. Im past warranty and I know they can be fixed at home I just dont want to buy the manual.

No offense but your going down the wrong path with these guys.I'm going to tell you about a tried,tested and true way to get a new 360 @no cost to you! Take cash money, no bank or credit card, go and buy a new 360 that resembles yours. Then take your new one out of the box and simply swap it for the old ring of death and take it back. So simple and sweet it works! They don't even check the man. numbers to see if they match. think about it, if you made $8.00 an hr. would you give a shit?! It works and I know it works. Screw ther warrranty they will get it anywyas after you return it and fix it only with out the postage and wiating hastle.

fyi, return fraud is a felony in michigan. many other states are also cracking down on this with increased penalties.

How old is it? Because Micro$soft has issued a retroactive 3 year warranty on the RROD problem. Call them, you may get a new box out of it and not just yours refurbed.

Even if it is past the warranty date you should be able to call microsoft up and tell them whats going on. I've had a couple of friends that this has happened to and didn't have a problem, maybe except waiting 2 months for the thing to come back.

Yeah! Trust microsoft to get it to you when they want. I never siad it was ehical or right I just siad it would work. Why repair something that should have been free of this well known defect to begin with. If they had a 360 store you'd get it back just like an automotive part under warranty. Speaking of that there warranty works just like that. My suggestion was just out there for you to try or not. i don't give a shit either way what happens and I guess I will keep my mouth shut next time and let people get screwed by the system as usual as opposed to being crucified for a suggestion.

Call Barack. He will give you a new one after tomorrow. j/k

Mine got a video code, lower leftside light of ring, Code 72 or 74. They sent me a brand new one and I have had mine for @ 2 years.

Hopefully you get someone you can understand when you call. 3 out of 4 of mine had horrible English.
