you're screwed, call microshaft for a refurb, or if you have warranty for the store i would go with the store cause microshafts refurbs might do the same 3 red lights.


To receive instructions for obtaining repair or replacement warranty services you must call:Within the U.S., U.S. Territories and Canada: 1-800-4MY-XBOX (1-800-469-9269); TTY users: 1-866-740-XBOX (1-866-740-9269).


Edit: shipping might take a while too, so shipping might take all of halo 3 beta time
if you want a short term remedy, wrap it up in 2 big towels all around, leave it on for 30 minutes, it will get really hot, take off the towels and let it cool off, turn it on then it wont give you 3 red lights anymore, but this is only a short term fix, tomorrow it might give you the lights again.

also, this has nothing to do with the halo 3 beta, and if it did, there is a sticky for that.


have you checked the 3 red rings sticky?

And that's the worst thread ever? What is this, the second thread you've read?


You're the guy who had the sig bitching about all the whining. I guess it's fine when you do it, which you certainly seem to do a lot.

No it's the third. Sorry if a little sarcasm bothers you. I don't ***** anymore than you do on here.

That's really all you can do. If you know what your doing you can take a look yourself and see if something is fixable. Have you checked the 3 red light thread? It has topic on what the 3 lights could mean on your console. Good luck.

Keep calling back. you might be able to get someone to either let you add the extended warrantee or either give you a discount on the repair.

do the towel trick, it'll fix it for a few months at least, then you can finish the beta if anything.


i had 3 red rings about a month ago, overheated my box with a towel, and i havent even had a freeze since then

i love the beta too, and the beta had nothing to do with your box failing.
