    Default XBOX 360 Possible Issue....PLease Help me RRoD

    I was playing NHL arcade online today when all of a sudden the screen and graphics started looking psychadelic and purple colors. My first 360was the white one and I did experience RROD(red ring of death) after that model got all screwed up I decided it was time for the Xbox 360 Elit.,the black one...I have had for about a 1 year with no problems until today.. Please I hope this is not RROD about to happen..I shut down the console as soon as I saw these weird effects and it is not my TV because my NES looks beautiful on it.. What is the deal??? Any suggestions or help would be appreciated..

    It sounds like a possible issue with your GPU. Does this always occur now?

    This is why you shouldn't do drugs before a gaming session. They tend to mess with your vision.

    Back to business, you would know if it were a rrod because of those nifty three lights. And you've also said you've experienced one before so the symptoms might be similar. What happened once you turned your tv and console back on? Were things back to normal or were you still seeing trippy visuals?

    Your GPU is on it's way out. You're well on your way to an RRoD. Keep turning it on, letting it warm up, turninging it off, let it cool down... etc until it RRoD's. You're still covered under your warranty.

    I just tried tunring it on about hour an half later and I was not getting any visuals,sounds, or RROD. I checked connections with the HDMI wire and they were all pretty snug. I unplugged both input and output with the HDMI and plugged the back in. Low and behold the console is now functional. I hope this was just an isolated incident.....but we will see.

    No, it's dying. It was able to cool it self down long enough to reseat and be happy again. Get prepped to call MS for replacement.
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.

    when I took my 360 twice for freezing screen and lines in the screen I got it back twice with repairs done to the GPU... the workorder just says reflowed the GPU...

    ... but, what are you doing buying a 360 without a warranty?

    Repair done by Microsoft, or someone else?

    I had this happen also it had already RROD once under warranty and then disc drive issues and finally the gpu. Someone actually bought it off me for 150! used that towards a brand new one. MS wanted 100 to fix it seems to me buying new makes more sense (unless they extend your warranty to equal that of a new machine?)

    personaly I think that microsoft with some sort of system update rerouted errors that would previously cause 360's to red ring to just freeze or fail without the red rings of death...

    Not so much...

    The way to kill your 360 quickly, toss it in a freezer until it cools down (don't let it get wet). Then wrap a blanket around it and power it on. Let it RRoD (it will eventually hit a heat limit and power down). Let it cool off again (freezer is optional), then let it heat up. Keep cycling the temperature until it dies.

    RROD is not an Achievement. There are no points to be had.

    My question to you is: Did it just crap out with one game? Multiple? Are any of your games scratched?

    There are so many problems with Xbox 360's if it wasnt for a decent libaray pepole would have said to hell with them.


    I cant believe that people are still having issues.

    I had a RROD happen once on my 360, it was because I had the intercooler hooked up to it I removed it made sure the connections were secure and it has been running mint ever since.
